Reducing your energy consumption
Reducing CO2 – cuts costs and is good for the environment
Turning the light off, switching appliances off and identifying energy guzzlers – all good ideas for reducing your company’s energy consumption.
However, in the manufacturing sector, measures are particularly effective when energy-efficient technologies are used. This includes induction heating, which can be used in all applications in which conductive materials are heated.
and other advantages
In addition to offering better working conditions, induction heating uses significantly less energy than other heating methods. This is because it is:
Energy is produced exactly where it is needed, for exactly as long as it is needed and in exactly the amount that is needed.
The required temperature is reached very quickly.
There are fewer CO2 emissions.
Heating processes are easily reproducible with induction heating.
Inductive processes are also simple to automate.
Induction heating can easily be integrated into all production processes.
The integrated quality assurance means that quality can be monitored and there is hardly any waste.
We would be happy to advise about what an optimal and efficient solution would look like for you.
Where is induction heating used?
Exactly the right solution for your production
Does induction heating really reduce CO2 emissions?
Since 1950, Himmelwerk has shipped more than 19,000 high and medium frequency generators worldwide. How much CO2 does this save annually?
Let’s have a look.
First, let’s start with a few assumptions:
Assumption 1:25% of your generators are still operational.
Assumption 2:They have an average output of 6 kW and thus a power consumption of 7 kW.
Assumption 3: These generators are operational 8 hrs per day and 5 days per week.
Assumption 4: Inductive heating uses up to 40% less energy than conventional methods. Let’s assume 30%.
With these assumptions, our calculation would look like this:
Daily energy consumption: 8 hrs x 7 kW = 56 kW
Energy savings per day: 56 kWh / 0,7 = 80 kWh; 80 – 56 = 24 kWh
Total energy savings per day: 24 kWh x 4.750 generators = 114.000 kWh
Total energy savings per year: 220 working days x 114.000 kWh = 25.080.000 kWh
Conversion factor kWh/CO2: 1 kWh is equivalent to approx. 0.485 kg of CO₂ (source: German Federal Environmental Agency, Climate Change 15/2022)
CO2 reduction per year: 25.080.000 kWh x 0,485 kg = 12.163.800 kg
