Get the Right Heating Solution for Your Rubber Products

Microwave heating is a multiphysics phenomenon that involves electromagnetic waves and heat transfer. In a layman’s language, the material to be heated is exposed to electromagnetic waves, this passage charges up every single molecule of the material resulting in rise of temperature of the same material. This exerts pressure, which pushes the moisture in the material towards the surface which is then evaporated. Microwave heating is a commercially available method of heating liquids, suspensions, or solids in a continuous flow on an industrial scale. The pattern of microwave heat distribution depends on many physical parameters, which includes the electromagnetic field, the absorption rate and structure of the processed material, and also the dimensions of the heating container. It is also used for household purposes but on a lower scale.

Manufacturers wanting to produce new products, build new plants, or automate should consider microwave heating for their specialized heating applications. Microwave heating is a quick and efficient method of heating materials that are difficult to heat by convection or infrared methods, so there is a hike in production rates and improvement in product quality. The key parameter in Industrial Microwave Heating is uniform heat distribution. This can be achieved by different methods, which may involve computer simulation and different mechanical mechanisms such as turntables & stirrers. A proper microwave energy pattern is necessary for attaining a uniform heat release.
Conventional heating methods require heat conduction from the material’s surface inward; they are slow and inefficient for materials that conduct heat poorly. The direct and efficient heating supplied by microwave energy offers several advantages for the production of these materials. To understand Microwave heating better, let’s look at some of its advantages as listed below:

  1. Quick heat penetration
  2. Selective heating
  3. Responsive to automation
  4. Improvement in product quality
  5. Increases flexibility
  6. Combined with conventional methods
  7. High energy efficiency
  8. Space savings

Though the most widespread industrial use of microwave heating is for food processing, but it is also effective for other hard-to-heat products, such as –

  • Rubber
  • Ceramics
  • Polymer
  • Minerals & Metals
  • Waste Recycling
  • Chemicals and pharmaceuticals

New applications are emerging rapidly and gaining popularity as manufacturers discover the unique benefits of microwave heating.
In this blog, you will understand the applications of microwave heating in the Rubber Industry.

   

Microwave heating saves energy during batch preheating of rubber before setting into different product moulds. It has converted rubber vulcanization, which is required for strength and resiliency, from a batch process to a continuous one. As rubber is one of the materials that conducts heat poorly, conventional heating systems lags the process but microwave energy rapidly heats the rubber within its bulk, up to five times faster than hot air heating. Rubber is continuously extruded, microwave heated and vulcanized, and formed into products such as gaskets, tyres etc.
The Results:

  • More desirable product
  • Increased flexibility
  • Elimination of steps
  • Reduced labour costs
  • Optimum use of material
  • Less floor space
  • Saves energy
  • Safer work environment

Some Guidelines to be considered

  • Ability to exposure to microwave heat
  • Temperature of the environment
  • The optimum time of heating (not less, not more)
  • Possibility of absorbing hybrid heat treatment (microwave+ convention)

The Precision behind your Industrial Baking Ovens

It is time to enjoy various delicacies especially the baked goodies. Be it relishing on a Monginis cake, a Cadbury celebrations pack or on Mom’s homemade cookies filled with love and care.


Acknowledging your cravings of the mouth watering items, KERONE has to offer Industrial Ovens of customizable sizes for various Industrial purposes. In this extract you get to know everything about a Baking Oven. Beginning with what is an Oven?
“An oven is an enclosed cavity or tunnel where dough or batter is placed amidst a hot environment and is then baked and transformed into cake, bread, cookies, or other products.”
Baking Ovens are major equipment for bakery process. In order to bake the products, Ovens use energy generation sources, e.g.: combustion of fuels (gas or oil) or electricity. The released available energy from these sources is transferred to the products by means of radiation, conduction or convection. The oven sets and maintains the proper conditions of heat, humidity, and temperature to carry out the baking process and the removal of moisture from the products to eliminate the possible existence of microbes improving the shelf life of the baked products. Meticulous baking would give us appetizing baked items with desired texture & taste.
Not only the baking ovens, but also its supplementary accessories, being circulating fan, steam extraction chimneys, safety explosion doors, fire tube, burners, temperature controller & indicators, fuel system and baking moulds are of grave importance. For the selection of baking oven various dimensions are taken into consideration such as height, width, weight, chimney size, foundation method, electrical wiring and automation. Keeping all these specifications in mind KERONE provides customizable Ovens to our valuable clients catering to their industrial requirements.
Baking Ovens are classified based on various parameters, which are the following:

  1. Physical Characteristics: Rack, Rotary Rack, Tunnel, Swing, Tray Ovens etc.
  2. Heating: Direct, Indirect, Hybrid, Convection, Radiation etc.
  3. Loading: Top or Front load
  4. Fuel Used: Diesel, Gas, Oil, Electric, Infrared
  5. Wire Bands: Articulated, Flat Steel, Modular
  6. Design: Mark III, TRP, Mark II Ovens

The type of oven that suits a bakery’s operation may be a function of production capacity, product specifications, floor space, available energy sources, operation efficiencies, construction materials, and maintenance needs.
Maintenance of ovens
Installation of excellent Ovens alone is not important but timely maintenance is also vital.
Oven maintenance focuses on two major goals:

1. Prevent food safety hazards – (physical, biological, and chemical) reducing foreign material contamination, under-processing, and contamination with lubricants. These hazards may pose a food safety risk to customers and the loss of a good reputation and money for the company.
2. Prevent equipment failures – (mechanical, electrical, and thermal) equipment failures that could have a negative impact on daily oven operations and increase downtime, triggering significant economic losses.
Inspection and maintenance of equipment and calibration of measuring and instrumentation devices are vital for smooth oven operation.

Indirect Dryers Outdo Direct Dryers in Drying Applications

A Rotary Dryer is a type of industrial dryer employed to reduce or minimize the liquid moisture content of the material it is handling by bringing it into contact with a heated gas. These dryers are a critical component in many industrial processes, capable of processing all sorts of materials from chemicals & fertilizers to minerals & ores and nearly everything in between. The dryer is made up of a large, rotating cylindrical tube, usually supported by concrete columns or steel beams. The dryer is inclined to slopes slightly so that the discharge end is lower than the material feed end in order to convey the material through the dryer without opposing the gravity.

Rotary Dryers are extensively used for Drying but the following processes can be combined with it:

  • Cooling
  • Cleaning
  • Shredding
  • Separating

Features of Rotary Dryers:

  • Robust construction with various lifter (internal fins) options
  • Can be co-current or counter-current
  • Permits use of higher drying temperatures
  • Relatively long residence time
  • Highly efficient functions
  • Economic fuel and energy consumption
  • Low Maintenance cost
  • Reduced capital and operating costs
  • Huge capacity available as compared to other dryers

Rotary Dryers are majorly classified on the basis of heat transfer:

  1. Direct Rotary Dryer
  2. Indirect Rotary Dryer

Direct Rotary Dryers use direct contact between the material and drying air to scale down the moisture content of the material. Hot steam/air is circulated within the dryer, with the material being lifted up and rolled back down by a series of internal fins lined along the inner wall of the dryer. These dryers are used throughout a multitude of industries, including fertilizer and agriculture, mining and minerals, specialty chemicals, and more. They offer heavy-duty processing and consistent reliability.


But the direct dryers are at a disadvantage when assigned to dry material pigments or combustible materials as there is a risk of contamination or losing the original components of the materials. Hence the Indirect Rotary Dryers are brought into application. These dryers work on steam/air which is preheated by some means where burner combustion gases do not enter the dryer and have no direct contact with the material being processed. It commonly finds its application with food grade materials, highly combustible materials, organics such as grains and pulps, and fine materials such as pigments.
Rotary dryers can be widely used to dry various materials, and are simple to operate. They are used to process the following materials at the respective industries:

  • Metallic and nonmetallic minerals at Mining Industry
  • Sands, stones and soil at the Cement & Construction Industry
  • Wood chips at Wood Processing Industry
  • Food grains, cereals, pulses, seeds, fermented leaves at the food processing Industry

In some cases, combination of direct-indirect rotary dryers is also available to improve the overall efficiency.

The material is gaining notable importance in almost every sphere of activity like transport, aerospace, electronics, transportation & FMCG products and the per capita consumption is increasing at a fast pace. Some of the continuous advancements and developments in polymer technology which are to be given the credit for the rising status of plastics in our daily lives are:

  • Processing machineries
  • Expertise
  • Cost effective manufacturing

Plastic is a material consisting of any of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organic compounds that are malleable and so can be molded into solid objects. Apart from malleability, other features like, low cost, ease of manufacture, versatility, and imperviousness to water, plastics are used in a multitude of products of different scale, from paper clips to spacecraft. It has prevailed and is fast replacing the traditional materials, such as wood, stone, horn & bone, leather, metal, glass, and ceramic, in some products previously left to natural materials.
For plastic to reach such great heights, Industrial heaters or Heating Systems have played the substantial role. These heating systems help in the processing of plastic by softening polymers in order to shape it into the desired form and inevitably into the products usually used. Hence, selecting the right equipment can aid the goal of higher productivity and greater yields.
Role of Heating Systems in Plastic Industry:
Heating systems are made of various heating equipments like Band heaters, Tubular heaters, flange heaters, cartridge heaters, and Strip heaters which are commonly used in the plastics industry. Thermocouples and precise digital controllers are also used to maintain target temperatures for each application.
Following are the plastic manufacturing processes where Heaters are involved:

  • Blow Molding: Process generally used for forming glass bottles.
  • Extrusion: Process in which raw plastic is melted and formed into a continuous profile.
  • Injection Molding: Refers to shaping of rubber/plastic articles by injecting heated material into a mould.

Operational Functions of Infrared Heating in Food Industry

Heat transfer occurs through one of 3 methods, Conduction, Convection, and Radiation. Foods and biological materials are heated primarily to extend their shelf life or to enhance taste. In conventional heating, which is achieved by combustion of fuels or by an electric resistive heater, heat is generated outside of the object to be heated and is conveyed to the material by convection of hot air or by thermal conduction. By exposing an object to Infrared (IR) radiation (wavelength of 0.78 to 1000 μm), the heat energy generated can be absorbed by food materials ready to be consumed in comparatively less time and better quality. Certain characteristics of IR heating have lately increased its demand gaining more popularity such as listed below:

  • Reduced Heating time
  • Efficiency
  • Uniform heating
  • Reduced quality losses
  • Higher thermal efficiency
  • Faster Heating Rate
  • Absence of solute migration in food material
  • Compact equipment
  • Significant energy saving

Combinations of IR heating with microwave heating and other common conductive and convective modes of heating have been gaining momentum because of increased energy throughput. Further in this article, aspects of IR heating and presents a theoretical basis for IR heat processing of food materials and the interaction of IR radiation with food components are explained.

Interaction of IR radiation with food components:
The effect of IR radiation on optical and physical properties of food materials is crucial for the design of an infrared heating system and optimization of a thermal process of food components. The infrared spectra of such mixtures originate with the mechanical vibrations of molecules thus processing the food and bringing out the best end results.
When radiant electromagnetic energy impinges upon a food surface, it may induce changes in the electronic, vibrational, and rotational states of atoms and molecules. As food is exposed to infrared radiation, the radiation is absorbed, reflected, or scattered. Absorption intensifies at different wavelengths of different food components. The food processing systems should be accustomed to various food substances and their ability to absorb heat at different wavelengths
Interactions of light with food material and the crucial optical principles are divided into three main types for better understanding, such as:

  • Regular reflection (takes place at the surface of a material)
  • Body reflection (light enters the material, diffuses due to light scattering, and undergoes some absorption)
  • Light scattering (leaves the material close to where it enters)

Regular reflection produces only the gloss or shine of polished surfaces, whereas body reflection produces the colors and patterns that constitute most of the information obtained visually. For materials with a rough surface, both regular and body reflection can be observed. Most organic materials reflect 4% of the total reflection producing a shine of polished surfaces. The rest of the reflection occurs where radiation enters the food material and scatters, producing different color and patterns. It was also observed that as the thickness of the layer increases, a simultaneous decrease in transmittance and increase in reflection occurs.
Applications of IR heating in food processing operations:
The application of infrared radiation to food processing has gained momentum due to its inherent advantages over the conventional heating systems. IR radiation has been widely applied to various thermal processing operations in the food industry such as –

  1. Drying
  2. Baking
  3. Roasting
  4. Blanching
  5. Pasteurization
  6. Sterilization

Sources of IR heating:
Two conventional types of infrared radiators used for process heating are:

  • Electric heaters
  • Gas‐fired heaters

These 2 types of IR heaters generally fit various temperature ranges. IR temperatures are typically used in the range of 650 to 1200 °C to prevent charring of products. The capital cost of gas heaters is higher, while the operating cost is cheaper than that of electric infrared systems. Electrical infrared heaters are popular because of installation controllability, ability to produce prompt heating rate, and cleaner form of heat. In general, the operating efficiency of an electric IR heater ranges from 40% to 70%, while that of gas‐fired IR heaters ranges from 30% to 50%
Quality and sensory changes by IR heating:
It is crucial and beneficial to investigate the quality and sensory changes occurring during IR heat treatment for commercial success. KERONE has studied the quality and sensory changes of food materials during IR heating after a detailed research. (Refer the R&D Reports to know more)
It was observed that application of Infrared Heating on food items results into a better product than applying convections heat. The food IR rays penetrate inside the food item thus destroying the inhabiting pathogens inside as well as on the surface of the food product without any change in the quality attributes of foods, such as vitamins, proteins, and antioxidant activities. The research suggested that 3 to 4 minute of infrared heat treatment was adequate for commercially acceptable products with the same nutrients and visibly healthier.
Conclusion:
IR heating is a unique process; however, presently, the application and understanding of IR heating in food processing is still in its infancy, unlike the electronics and allied sector where IR heating is a mature industrial technology. It is further evident from this review that IR heating offers many advantages over convection heating. IR heating is attractive primarily for surface heating applications. In order to achieve energy optimum and efficient practical applicability in the food processing industry, combination of IR heating with microwave and other common conductive and convective modes of heating holds great potential. It is quite likely that the utilization of IR heating in the food processing sector will augment in the near future, especially in the area of drying and minimal processing.

Food Processing – The Ultimate Means to Combat Resident Micro organisms

Food processing means the ways that are used to change raw ingredients or agricultural produce into consumable food items for humans or animals. Food processing has been the age old customs since the nomadic ages in order to prevent & preserve food for devouring at later times. The advancement of technology has only improved the practice of food processing keeping the basic purpose of prevention and consumption intact. The food processing industry uses these processes.
Food Processing has 3 main stages, namely:

  1. Primary – necessary to make some foods edible. Eg: cooking vegetables
  2. Secondary – turning various ingredients into a food item. Eg: baking bread
  3. Tertiary – usually the processing of instant and fast foods, low in its nutrition level but devoured with relish

Basic Advantages of Food Processing:

  • Adds value to crops
  • Removal of inedible portions
  • Preservation for later consumption or sale to fetch better price
  • Is a major source of food in regular diet
  • Benefits a large groups of people, such as farmers, suppliers, vendors and of course the customers

India is the world’s second largest producer of food next to China, and has the potential of being the biggest with the food and agricultural sector. The total food production in India is likely to double in the next ten years and there is an opportunity for large investments in food and food processing technologies, skills and equipment, especially in areas of –

  • Canning
  • Dairy and Food Processing
  • Packaging
  • Frozen Food
  • Meat & Poultry
  • Fruits\Vegetables\Grains Processing
  • Packaged/Convenience Foods
  • Alcoholic Beverages & Soft Drinks
  • Thermo-Processing, etc. etc.

India produces nearly 16% of the world’s total food grain production. It is one of the largest producers of agricultural produce. With a population expected to reach to about 590 million people by 2030 in urban India, India has a huge potential domestic demand for processed foods other than the demand from the exports. There are many socio-economic factors that are driving the demand side of the Indian Food Processing Industry. The changing consumption patterns, rising income levels among the middle-class and changing lifestyles, are some of the factors providing the demand side push for the Food Processing Industry. Moreover, the central government has given a priority status to all agro-processing businesses. (Excerpt from ecoursesonline.iasri.res.in).

The IR heating depends on.

  • Surface property of material
  • Type of radiation
  • Shape of emitter and receiver

Microwave Food Processing:
Microwave heating conduce to the reduction of come up time in the processing for food products and is insensitive to food heterogeneity. In addition, microwave heating is also effective to heat up the ready to eat food, retrieving its original form and nutrients. Pasteurization is the most widely used technology for killing pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms in milk and fruit juices and other products. The MW heating depends on:

  • Surface property of material
  • Type of radiation

Heating and cooling systems, to facilitate all Industrial functions

The process of manufacturing of expensive and high-grade products especially pharmaceutical and special chemical products, include a great deal of heating or cooling procedures of materials to maintain a specific and desirable temperature. Though they are not produced in very large quantities, to get the desirable temperature the materials have to undergo numerous heating and cooling systems. Both heating and cooling work on the principle that heat always moves from warmer object to a cooler one, to facilitate this flow of heat, a medium is required which can be air, gaseous or any fluid (water or other oils). The medium must be flexible—with a wide operating temperature range, hence a liquid medium tends to be better than that of air or gaseous form.
The industries which use heating and cooling systems in particular:

  • Petroleum – for the crude oil production & processing, the best, efficient heating systems and services are a necessity in almost all its processes, which demands to be safe, effective, and reliable, while maximizing efficiency.

A Catalyst to Longevity of your Product–Industrial Coating

Coating is a covering applied to a product usually referred to as the ‘substrate’ with a layer of liquid or powder. It is done either for decorative or protective purpose or even both. Coating may be all-covering or may also cover some parts of the substrate.
There has been an increasing demand for industrial coating in the market. Industrial coatings are essentially specialized paints that are used for protective and functional purposes, to resist corrosion and destruction from dust and other materials thus increasing the longevity of the product and enhancing its functions. Coating helps the substrate to achieve a desired level of strength, surface tension and a perfect finish.
Coating is used on the following materials or products:

  • Pharmaceutical Tablets: are coated to confer specific benefits; that broadly range from facilitating product identification to modifying drug release from the dosage form.
  • Food Items: are coated for various purpose namely; adding nutritional value, enhancing taste and longer preservation.
  • Metal Equipments: are coated for durability, to reduce wear & tear and protection against corrosion.
  • Wooden Furniture: are coated for it provides durability, rich colour and minimizes hazards.
  • Glass: is coated for protection from mechanical and chemical stress, increased scratch resistance and shatter protection and also for beautification.
  • Textile/Fabric: is coated for superior heat protection, exceptional durability and resistance to chemicals and abrasion.
  • Paper: is coated to give water resistance and wet strength to the paper or to protect against ultraviolet radiation.
  • Plastic: is coated for resistance from heat and for rough & tough features to last long.

Types of Coating:

  1. Powder Coating – Powder coating is a multi-step finishing process.
    i: The product is cleaned and prepared for coating.
    ii: It is coated with a fine powder. The powder covers the product’s surface.
    iii: The product is then moved into a curing oven, to get heated, allowing the powder to melt and flow into a uniform coating that adheres to the product, creating a very durable and attractive coating around the product after the melted powder cools and hardens.
  2. Liquid Coating – Liquid paint coating is the simple application of paint to products, with the help of various machineries.
