Solar Heating for Industrial Equipment

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:

  • Boilers
  • 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.
