Low-temperature Solar Heat is Ideal for Many Industrial Processes
American Solar’s heating designs meet America’s largest energy need – heating energy, which is 60% to 80% of all the energy used in industrial applications.
The potential processes that can use the low-temperature heat are as varied as the industries we can serve. Our systems can provide heating to improve the efficiency of:
- Hot Water Systems
- Drying Processes
- Baking Processes
- Heat Pumps
Our systems can improve the efficiency of a process requiring a low-temperature fluid or low-temperature feedstock. We simply take air heated from the building’s exterior metal roof or siding and direct the heated air appropriately.
For example, we can preheat:
- deionized water
- plastic pellets
- chilled fruits and vegetables before processing
- paint booth fresh air supply for spray and bake operations
- hot wash down water for sanitary cleaning
- desiccants for regeneration and humidity control
With the right expertise and equipment, American Solar can supply low-cost solar heat to almost all industrial processes.
