Electric, eco-friendly and extra capacity!
At the heart of its production line are two massive 50,000 litre tanks that store chemical fluid and play a crucial role in the manufacturing process. To maintain the ideal viscosity of the fluid, the tanks' internal and external walls are heated with hot water at a temperature of 75℃.
The existing system consisted of a 20-kilowatt closed-loop hot water system connected to a 3-megawatt steam boiler through plate heat exchangers. The large steam boiler was used to heat other building systems as well, causing energy losses as it had to run continuously even when not needed, just to keep the tanks at the required temperature. Additionally, the size of the heat exchangers was not adequate to sustain the desired water temperature.
