MHI Before and After Technologies

 

Q: What are the changes that are occurring in modern thermal technologies? Can one get expect energy efficiencies today compared to the past. 

A: Very similar to the miniaturization for computers. Please reflect on how large 1970-style IBM machines have evolved to desktop PC or tablets. Similar advances have now occurred for steam, process heat generators and rapid ionic reaction processes.

Traditional large foot-print and high power (kW) thermal furnaces and machines are being replaced by small foot print and highly energy efficient smart-power devices thus leading to enormous global energy and water savings.  A savings in just 10KW with a smart power device converts to about a $8000 per year (click for assumptions). 

Examples of Modern Machine in Applications:

Industry: Consumer goods packaging industries or textiles.  Many applications of the new MHI devices allow a 12kW use (instead of 150kW) and 90% water savings that could be realized.  General purpose tunnels and superheated steam are offered for antimicrobial cleaning from food to metals and polymers.

Materials industry such as automobiles.  Coatings and modified surfaces:  A smooth hard anti-seize process can be used to make useful coatings that can be created within seconds as opposed to days, thus saving energy and time.  Or tool bit surfaces, improved in an effortless manner compared to earlier methods 

Use powerful MHI devices for continuous VOC removal or use for rapid heat treatment and/or surface treatments like finishing to hardfacing. The operating cost estimate per pound of VOC removed is about ~0.5¢*, for normal ppm contamination concentration removal. Compare with over $4/lb. Please contact MHI to verify calculations.

What is smart power? The choice of technologies that enable devices with improved energy efficiency and improved working environment are based on smart power.   The use of smart power effectively speeds up industrial and commercial processes.  Smart power devices have led to a lowered energy use in the lighting, cooking, textile, packaging and for industrial process for air/gas heating.   Designers who employ smart power devices have been able to create with brilliance, in brilliant colors with reduced power draw.  MHI Inc. has pioneered smart power high temperature materials and devices.  Most of the MHI made devices use the SmartHeat technological advances which are integrated into devices like the Airtorch.

Why and how are MHI devices so energy efficient?  The use of high grade energy almost automatically leads to many types of improved efficiencies including the use of much lower energy for an objective and much lower time of processing i.e. to a higher productivity.  MHI excels in high grade energy conversion products.  High temperature energy is high grade energy.

Industrial scale smart power devices, where available, tend to be highly energy efficient, offer low foot-print/weight and an increase in productivity.   It is always cost effective to use a lower amount of high grade energy compared to the inefficient use of huge amounts of low grade energy.  SmartPower.  MHI products offer energy efficiency with smart power.  MHI products incorporate clean energy concepts and sustainability demands.  MHI progress has often been compared to miniaturization in materials and process technologies that parallel rapid advancements in the computer and electronic products industry.  Specific developments in materials technology at MHI are first used to improve its own class of industrial thermal products thus providing a trusted platform for a number of escalating economic and environmental benefits in packaging, tool bits, automotive, textile and other market sectors. Such benefits are seen in terms of reduced weight and material consumption, increased strength, reduced energy consumption and enhanced performance. New materials technologies of interest include novel energy-efficient materials, non-stick metals, water repellent glass, lightweight alloys and polymers, fluids, low friction coatings for biotechnology and nanotechnology applications. Many of these new materials are now fully integrated into MHI industrial thermal products. A very important example is the use of nanostructures at high temperatures for the GAXP®, leading to the availability of a new nanostructured heating element.  Improving heat transfer (speed), energy efficiency and foot print becomes more critical as production demands increase.  Please download the cascade-e-ion. and OAB® catalogs from the adjacent column for reviewing case studies. With such tested transformative products  , MHI now offers new solutions for Tool Improvements, Non-stick Cast Iron Surfaces or CPG Shrink Packaging, with almost 90% energy savings and 90% water savings, as applicable.  A heavy use for the patent fenced oxynitrided surface in the automotive world is expected in the future. The MHI Airtorch(TM) applications are now possible at high temperature and high pressures for simulations and testing of advanced materials.

 

Other features of smart devices:  They enhance safety, for example when doing away with pressure in steam or process air systems, or employing fiberfreeTM insulation.  This is how SmartTechnology devices have evolved historically.

Advanced Structures and Materials at MHI.   Vertical development processes are used to then develop even more innovative products such as the Airtorch, OAB® instant-steam producing units or the versatile use cascade-e-ion.   Then further vertical processes are used to create hybrid solutions for the steam chambers as well as the Cascade e-ion plasma-standard.   Interested in rapid processing energy savings for shaping of electronic display glass for cell phones, tablets, biomedical displays?

Products, Processes and System Advances at MHI.   Effective manufacturing and management processes of systems are a key competitive factor that MHI invests in, for both efficiency and application efficacy.  Of particular importance are processes associated with research, design, new product development, manufacturing technology and service provision (testimonials).   The smart power manufacturing technologies have the opportunity to service the innovation, commercial and industrial sectors to provide better returns on investment ROI.  MHI has particular strengths in design and value-added engineering services.  For example the Airtorch is a high temperature flow device.  Other examples highlight the use of nano-technology in MHI products.  MHI tries hard for reasonable end-to-end visibility.
