This study treats the production process at the Çamlı Tea Factory as a continuous flow open system and analyses it according to the second law of thermodynamics, using the values for the years 2014-2015. Thermodynamic models of the component processes are constructed and each step is examined in terms of exergetic parameters. Tables are presented of the values of exergy input and exergy destruction for each component in the thermodynamic model. The study reports numerical values for important exergy losses in the system and identifies the zones where energy saving should be made.
