has to do with work potential or the quality of the energy vis.a vis. convertibility for work. A work potential (is measured from a reference state) and is available from difference in a temperature, difference in a pressure, chemical processes, electromagnetic or strong-force potentia,l and many boundary energy storage mechanisms. The most efficient work is possible when there is no new entropy generation during the process.
The higher the temperature difference, the better the efficiency
and exergy of a process. One can have more exergy from a higher enthalpy phase during a transformation where the enthalpy is released e.g. at the melting point there is more exergy in the liquid than the solid at the same temperature.
MHI products reach very high temperatures
in air and thus provide some of the highest source
temperatures in an extremely versatile
fashion. The higher temperatures possible with MHI
products (heating elements, advanced materials, furnaces,
steam units, Airtorches,Plasma) give possibilities of high efficiencies and high exergies. MHI also
offers sub-assemblies in the form of heating
elements, coils and Airtorch devices
Manufacturing and and process productivity are greatly
improved with high temperature availability (SmartPower from High Temperature). Link
is always conserved, wheras exergy (a measure of the potential of that energy) is not. The same amount of energy at 1900°C has more
potential than when the energy is available at a lower temperature.
The quality of energy as important as the quantity for
determining what the energy can do for you. MHI specializes
in high quality energy. MHI products may be used for conversion
of low quality energy to high quality energy. To find out how,
