As societies grow, technology will continue to be a critical and ever changing component toward a sustainable future. Emisshield strives to lead this ongoing change by pushing the boundaries of our technology to assist industries with the expansion of societal growth but at the same time preserving resources for the generations to come.
Protecting a Sustainable Future!
We designed and developed a line of high emissivity products to specifically assist industrial processes with the reduction of their carbon footprint. Our sustainability product line enhances the overall performance of your processes and assists you in producing the same amount of products while using less energy. Globally, companies are introducing new ways to achieve these measures and Emisshield is here to help. This sustainability line of products has been recorded to reduce carbon emissions by more than 15% in certain applications. Our strategic partners work with you directly to maximize your efficiency and emissions reduction potential.
Through the work being preform at Ghent with the IMPROOF Study, we are proving that the power of Emisshield’s High Emissivity Materials can drastically reduce your emissions. With the results from IMPROOF we took these successes and produced similar products for the Iron & Steel and Glass Industries. With our experience in high emissivity materials we plan to help our customers reduce their overall carbon footprint to preserve our resources for the generations to come.
Integrated model guided process optimization of steam cracking furnaces (IMPROOF) is a project with the University of Ghent to drastically improve the energy efficiency of steam cracking furnaces by at least 20%, and this in a cost-effective way, while simultaneously reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and NOX per ton ethylene produced by at least 25%. The project is being coordinated and lead by Professor Kevin Van Geem of the University of Ghent. Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD modeling has shown great results in using high emissivity materials. Based on the findings thus far, the application of Emisshield will be placed on the surface of the radiant coils, furnace walls, burners and more. Tests are showing that these applications will increase heat flux and heat re-radiation, and provide a uniform temperature distribution on the tube shell, eliminating hot spots and inhibiting coking.
Reducing coke formation inside the process tubes will be an important component in reducing the energy used throughout these processes. Data is providing evidence toward coke forming from hotspots on the outside of the radiant coils. Emisshield coatings are eliminating these hotspots by providing an even temperature distribution throughout the unit, keeping the tube shell cooler and maximizing efficiency. As we continue our efforts with IMPROOF, we will distribute the findings and inform you how High Emissivity Materials can positively affect your processes.
