Today, businesses are faced with regulatory requirements and competitive pressures to reduce energy footprint while maintaining profitability. Manufacturers need to look closely for opportunities to reduce energy consumption in overall operations. That said, there are several critical activities in production that consume a ton of power and are at the heart of the operations.
Process heating is a common area amongst the majority of industries that may account for up to 38% of the total energy used in industrial plants. This is where we at Nexthermal have successfully created an impact by designing efficient heating solutions that can help reduce overall energy consumption. Nexthermal is an industry leader in industrial heating solutions. With 35 years of industrial experience under our belt, we are dedicated to designing solutions that can optimize the efficiency of the system, increase throughput as well as save you energy!
Using the right heater design customized to your application could be all that it can take to unlock your energy-saving opportunities!
Customer Success Story:
Nexthermal specializes in custom design for top seal and tray seal applications. Some of these designs have specifically helped our customers save up to more than 40% energy!
How would you like to double the machine output, with the same energy consumption?
For one of our customers, we redesigned the top and tray seal heating assembly for one of the world’s largest packaging machine manufacturers whose market goal is to help leading food brands in North America to stay competitive. During the design review meetings, we discovered that the wattage requirement typically assigned by the customer was too high to be able to control accurately. So during the design phase, we used our thermal simulation tools to quickly analyze proposed designs with reduced mass that reduced the power requirement significantly (from 650 Watts to 440 Watts). These design changes allowed an extremely efficient top seal design, maximum machine throughput, and overall energy savings opportunities.
The customer was now able to produce double the seal heads with the same amount of power than before, thus increasing productivity by a whopping 100%
