Innovation has always been central to our vision for the past 75 years and today, Bausano continues to provide our customers with cutting-edge technological solutions. Our Smart Energy Induction System aims at responding to one of the most important current issues for our customers: energy consumption.
For us, promoting energy savings means encouraging sustainable production, improving performance and, at the same time, respecting people and the environment.
Smart Energy Induction System
The Bausano Smart Energy Induction System is based on the principle of electromagnetic induction applied to the barrel heating cylinder. By exploiting the heating effect of a metal when subjected to a variable magnetic field, this system can reduce energy consumption by up to 30% when compared to traditional resistive heating methods.
Let’s explore some of the advantages of our system:
- Faster heat-up times
- Induced eddy currents generate powerful resistive heating directly within the barrel wall
- Increased heating capacity
- Faster, tighter temperature control
- Higher temperature materials processing (particularly useful for polyolefins)
- Maximum cooling efficiency
What do these advantages mean for our customers?
The headline is that the standard efficiency of this system is up to 30% higher than traditional resistive heaters, contributing to significant energy and cost savings and a subsequent reduction in both environmental impact and utility bills.
However, the benefits are not only experienced in efficiency but also in the quality of the final product. As the heating is applied directly and uniformly to the barrel, the melt temperature is very close to the barrel temperature, which contributes to a more homogenous gelification of the molten plastic.
With our induction system, there is also no thermal inertia and therefore none of the waste associated with traditional systems. The result is that our system is suitable across our extrusion product range, including WPC, pipe, granules, profile and medical applications.
The Smart Energy Induction System can be applied to both single and twin-screw extruders to facilitate the production of a variety of polymers including PVC and polyolefins. In conjunction with the other critical extrusion components, including the Multidrive system (for twin-screw), IE4 super premium efficiency motors and industry 4.0 software, the result is not only much more efficient, but more responsive and dynamic extrusion lines.
