Summary

Summary: 
The Belgian company makes production processes in the energy-intensive industries more efficient. In order to rebuild the production processes of their clients, the company is looking for providers of high-power (> 100 kW) electrical resistances to be used for converting gas-powered utilities. It is also looking for electrical process air heaters for humid air for an energy-efficient electrical coffee bean roaster under supplier or manufacturing agreement.

Description

Description: 

The company is active in the Belgian and European energy-intensive industries. Processes of all kinds of industries are being modified to achieve better quality in a more energy efficient manner. The Belgian company has an extensive knowledge about the product processes and a lot of experience in the redevelopment of these processes.It also installs utilities to deliver heat, cold and/or power and could provide the full connection to the customer’s processes.
Companies in Europe have to comply to the carbon emission limits. The mission of the Belgian company is to rebuild and optimize the power systems of their clients.

1) Gas steam boilers can be converted to electrical steam vessels. To do so, the Belgian company is looking for manufacturing companies that deliver electrical resistances of high power to deliver 3,5 – 10 MW of steam. The resistances would be used in a pressurized vessel. The cooperation could be in the form of a supplier agreement or a manufacturing agreement.

2) On the other hand, the Belgian company invented an electrical coffee bean roaster that is up to three times more energy efficient than conventional batch roasters, heated by gas. To upscale the production of its working prototype, it is looking for electrical process air heaters for humid air at temperatures of 250°C and for a range of around 100 kW. The cooperation could be in the form of a manufacturing agreement.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Cooperation sought: 
1) Requirement for electrical resistances of high power: to deliver 3.5-10 MW of steam that can be used in a pressurized vessel. 2) Requirement for the electrical process air heaters for humid air: temperatures of 250°C and the range should be around 100 kW

Stage of development

Available for demonstration

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The Belgian company is looking for industrial partners with extensive knowledge in two aspects (1) high-power electrical resistances and (2) high power electrical process heaters. It is not essential that those two products are delivered by the same partners. As for the (1) high power electrical resistances, the partner should build the heating elements and controllers themselves. The cooperation could be in the form of a supplier agreement or a manufacturing agreement. For the (2) high power electrical process heaters it is expected that the partner also cooperates in the development of the heaters and the cooperation will be in the form of a manufacturing agreement.
