KraussMaffei Berstorff: Reducing energy costs and environmental impact

Closed circulation of the process air provides cost savings because the air is heated centrally and 90 % of the energy-intensive hot air remains in the system. Another new feature is the improved thermal insulation of the process chambers. KraussMaffei Berstorff says that it is the only manufacturer worldwide who has managed to reduce the opening and closing times of microwave and hot air treatment channel doors to a few seconds. Where frequent material changes are necessary, the pneumatic doors reduce set-up and cleaning times substantially. When the treatment channel is opened, the hot inside panel of the doors automatically moves downward towards the frame, giving operators easy and ergonomic access to the profiles and enhancing operator safety.Each of the three microwave channel modules is equipped with four 1.5 kW generators. This means that each module supplies 6 kW magnetron power, which adds up to a total installed magnetron power of 18 kW for the entire channel. A circulator integrated into the energy supply transfers the energy not absorbed by the product to the connected water load, thus improving the magnetron service life. The microwave generators are arranged above and below the conveyor belt. The specific design of the microwave coupling system ensures an extremely homogeneous field distribution. Both the microwave power and the conveyor belt speed can be continuously adjusted. The central control panel ensures that system settings can be selected with maximum ease of use.Hall 15, stand B27, C24, C27, D24
