Save Money on Industrial Air Heaters

The industrial heating of air and water can be expensive. But you can effectively heat both air and water for industrial applications without breaking the bank. In fact, energy experts at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) found that it is possible to save millions of dollars in industrial settings, such as energy-intensive manufacturing plants, simply by improving the energy efficiency of steam or process heating systems. To save money on the industrial heating of air and water, be sure to keep the following in mind.

Use proper furnace insulation techniques. Simply by properly insulating furnaces, a major industrial plant can potentially save 1 million MMBtu of natural gas per year, according to energy-efficiency specialists in the DOE Industrial Technologies Program (ITP). That translates into a monetary savings of close to $12 million annually, as well as annual carbon dioxide savings of 124,000 metric tons. Proper insulation of the furnace also prolongs operating life. How can you ensure that your furnace is properly insulated?

Three Unexpected Types and Uses of Heating Systems

So, you think you know everything there is to know about heating systems? Not so fast. There are plenty of unexpected types and uses of heating systems. Here are some that you might not have thought of.

1. Heated Turf

Several companies specialize in creating heating systems for outdoor sports fields, such as soccer pitches and football playing fields. Heating Solutions International (HSI), a partner of the European Turf Group, recently built four heated turf soccer pitches in Norway that radiate up to 300 kilowatts to enable play on fields that otherwise would be covered in frost or snow.

PTC Heating Technology Benefits

It can be difficult to find the right heating technology for your needs. Most industrial and commercial customers demand an innovative combination of efficiency and safety in their heaters.

At Pelonis, we find that the perfect solution is PTC heating. PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) is a unique technology that eschews traditional resistance wire and replaces it with ceramic stones or chips.

This simple switch in materials is what makes PTC electric heaters superior to traditional coil electric heaters. In this blog, we will cover what we believe to be the top three benefits of modern PTC heating technology.
