With the pinch analysis, it is possible to analyze the use of adjuvants such as energy and water production and to optimize. With it is possible to determine how much energy or resources, the process would actually need if the plants themselves were in the optimum condition, and how much cost of energy or resources can be saved and what investments are needed for this purpose.
The pinch analysis is on industrial installations with heating and cooling processes, whether continuously or in batch mode, apply.

Links to split the cold stream to be heated can be seen in two substreams. These two sub-streams are transmitted with the connection line in the right diagram. The same happens with the warm, cooled stream ("hot CK") - not shown. Over the heat source (pink circle, down, red = warm, blue = cold light above current da) the heat sink (blue circle above) is supplied, but without going over the pinch point as the minimum temperature difference between the streams. Above the Pinches may not cooled, and below are not heated.
