Tokai Konetsu Kogyo (TKK) has developed special protective coatings for special atmosphere conditions to retard the oxidation rate between the element Sic material and the furnace atmosphere, the correct application of one of these protective coatings significantly increases the operational life time of Erema elements in any specific atmosphere.
TKK have also developed a number of improved material combinations of fine and coarse grain Sic to provide specific features, hence TKK have the largest range of Sic heating element types in the world, each new development adheres to TKK’s energy saving and environmental policies to ensure not only is element performance improved but also there is no detrimental effect on the environment.
One such development is the NEW Erema Eco Heater, the Erema Eco Heater elements use less power than conventional elements, and the resulting cost savings can exceed the purchase price of the heating elements. The unique element terminal design of the Erema Eco Heater reduces the heat lost from your furnace. Reduced losses mean lower electricity consumption, and that saves you money. It’s as simple as that.
Reducing power not only cuts your electricity bill. It’s also beneficial to the environment, reducing your carbon footprint by helping to lower the emission of greenhouse gases. Extensive testing has demonstrated that a typical Erema Eco Heater element can save its purchase price within the life of the element. Typical payback period can be as little as 12 months depending on the application.
Erema Eco Heater elements are inter-changeable with conventional silicon carbide elements. No capital costs, no need for new power supply, no furnace modifications – simply install Erema Eco Heater elements and start saving money today.
In tests carried out under steady state conditions, Erema Eco Heater elements required 4 - 6 % less power than conventional Silicon Carbide elements to maintain a constant furnace temperature of 1200°C, the actual saving is dependent on the kiln construction and condition.
Erema elements provide excellent performance in all applications within their operating temperature range, for details on the NEW Erema Eco Heater element and all of our other Sic products please contact our representatives.
