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?
