How you can benefit from our possibilities
Analyze current conditions
- Analysis of the existing complete drying process incl. upstream and downstream
- Evaluate the dryer design with on-site visit
- Determine specific savings potential
- Integration of heat recovery into the existing dryer system utilizing exhaust air
- Use of heat exchangers and heat pumps to increase efficiency
- Sample calculations to directly compare possible solutions and savings potentials
- Increased efficiency of the drying process by making adjustments related to the dryer’s design
- Consider "evaporative cooling" in the process planning of new plants
- Modify and adapt drum internals to optimize heat and mass transfer
- Improvement of upstream and downstream process (e.g. mechanical pre-dewatering)
- Drying plants manufactured with special “green steel”
- The CO2 emissions in the steel production process can be significantly reduced by using “green steel”
- Up to ca. 70% of the usual CO2 emissions in the steel production can be saved
- The overall CO2 footprint of the production plant is positively influenced
- Alternate heating options available, e.g., electric heating, biogas.
- Capture and use of waste heat for other processes within the plant
- Burner retrofit / modernization
- Integration of new energy-saving dryer systems (e.g. TK-D Duo)
