IR and MW heating Systems increases productivity of flameproof and water-repellent fabric

A textile is a flexible material, consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibres made by spinning raw fibres from plants, animals and other minerals. Textile more commonly is known as ‘Fabric’ or ‘Cloth’ in textile assembly trades, though there are subtle differences in these terms in specialized usage. The creation of textiles involves several processes than one might think. The production of fibres are spun into yarns, and then used to create fabrics into many other sub-processes. Textiles vary from, cotton, flax, jute, wool, silk, ramie, leather or synthetic materials like nylon, polyester, rayon etc.

In India, traditionally, after agriculture textile production is the only industry that has generated huge employment for both skilled and unskilled labour. India is the second largest producer of fibre in the world and the major fibre produced is cotton which is about 60% of the whole textile production.

Heat is an integral part of many textile processes. There are process heating systems used in textile production process supplying direct and indirect heat by means of numerous machinery produced by KERONE Engineering Solutions Ltd. Microwave and Infrared heaters find extensive use in the textile industry. These heaters find application in the following various processes:

Strong Casting and Exquisite Molding, by Modern Foundry Technologies

A foundry is an industrial facility that produces metal castings. Metals are cast into shapes by liquefying them into a fluid, pouring the metal into a mold, and removing or emptying the form material after the metal has solidified as it cools. The most widely recognized metals prepared are aluminum and solid metal. However, other metals, for example, bronze, metal, steel, magnesium, and zinc, are likewise used to create castings in foundries.

Foundry processes can be divided into two types – ferrous foundries and non-ferrous foundries i.e. the type of metal they use for casting of the moulds. Ferrous and Non-ferrous metals are distinguished by the presence of iron in the metal. Ferrous metals are defined as those metals that contain iron. Non-ferrous metals do not. Iron and its types like cast irons, grey iron, ductile iron, steel and other iron alloys are the examples of ferrous metals. Whereas Non-ferrous metals include every metal and alloy that does not contain iron, a short list of non-ferrous metals –

  • Precious metals like silver, platinum, and gold
  • Copper and its alloys like bronze and brass
  • Nickle, Palladium, Platinum
  •  Aluminum
  • Titanium
  • Tin, Lead
  • Zinc

Ferrous metals are the most well-known decision for castings, frequently picked for their cost-productivity and their mechanical properties. Now and again it’s not the quality of a metal that manages the decision, yet properties, for example, weight, corrosion resistance, or non-attraction. Non-ferrous alloys like bronze and brass can likewise be picked for tradition or for their delicacy.

Applications of Foundry –

  • De-waxing of casting moulds
  • Drying of casting moulds
  • Hardening of foundry moulds
  • Regeneration of casting mould waxes
  • Removing of solid objects from moulds
  • Core drying

The history of foundry traced back to the ancient period in which metallic objects in the form of coins, arrows, and household articles were in use. The casting process is said to have been practiced in early historic times by the craftsmen of Greek and Roman civilizations since then the role of metals has acquired unique significance. In modern times, mechanization leads to increased production, improved quality and reduction in production costs. Measures that aim at improving working conditions, delivering better quality products deserve enthusiastic support.

KERONE has always been the choice of various clients for its broad ‘hands-on’ involvement of use of microwave, radio frequency and infrared in all the foundry processes. Demystifying the numerous process of foundry casting and molding, we extend different machinery facilities and help to our regarded customers according to their particular procedure requisite.

Microwave Radiation’s Role in Glass Processing Industry

Glass is a solid-like and transparent material that is used in numerous applications in our daily lives. It is a sustainable, fully recyclable material which provides great environmental benefits such as contributing to mitigating climate change and saving precious natural resources. It is also highly appreciated in many applications for its inert nature and its contributions to safeguarding people’s health ad well being. It is an unlimited material whose number of applications is constantly evolving and which is more and more used in combination with other material for high-tech applications.

Glass processing is energy intensive, therefore the possibility to reduce energy consumption by selective energy intake into portions of glass using microwave heating is investigated. Glass products like bottles, jars, windows, mirrors, tableware, automobile parts etc. are some of the most commonly produced. Microwave heating is a process whereby microwave rays produced by magnetrons are directed toward reactants or heating medium, which absorb the electromagnetic energy volumetrically to achieve self-heating uniformly and rapidly. Microwaves obey the laws of optics-they are transmitted, reflected or absorbed depending on the nature of materials.

Strong absorption of the radiation was achieved by preheating the glasses, or by the application of microwave absorbing coatings, or by hydration. Experiments in melting, refining, reheating for forming, thermal toughening and surface ion exchange showed that the principal advantage of microwave radiation is rapidity of heating and a capability to heat hot areas of the glass selectively while leaving the cooler areas unaffected. Control of the uniformity and rate of heating were the principal difficulties which were overcome in due course of time. And the industrial microwave proved to be a better energy source for heating glass because it is easily controllable, is able to heat glass volumetrically or exclusively (as required by the specific task), and provides very high efficiency.

The use of microwave (MW) radiation in glass processing is reviewed and compared to the usual processing techniques –

  • Melting – of various raw materials in appropriate proportion at an elevated temperature and removal of impurities to get a homogenous melt.
  • Forming – permits molten glass to be shaped into flat sheets and filaments by controlling the viscosity. The most common types of glass forming be –
    1: Flat glass
    2: Glass fibers
    3: Continuous glass fibers
    4: Glass tubing
    5: Toughened or tempered glass
    6: Laminated Glass
  • Annealing – of the molten glass after setting into desired shapes
  • Inspection & testing – performed after the manufacturing process to ensure the quality level of the product is within acceptable standards.
  • Secondary Processing – Applying of special coatings or labeling

MW heating is known as a much-faster process (requiring minutes rather than hours), yielding good product quality, in comparison with the prolonged conventional thermal treatment of glass precursors.

Shedding some light on the characteristics of Microwave heating:

There are some characteristics of microwave heating that other heating methods (conventional heating method) do not have the following –

  • Internal heating
  • Rapid heating, Selective heating
  • High heating efficiency, Rapid response and temperature control
  • Heating uniformity, Clean energy
  • Good working and operating environment

Organic Food and its increasing consumer demand

Organic Food Processing is where organic raw materials are processed into food and drink. The organics standard of food processing is to protect the food constituents so that organic ingredients are used, and encourage the avoidance of unnecessary chemical or physical. Organic labeling offers consumers, the confidence that the eatables they consume are produced under controlled organic standards. Organic food should be of high nutritional and high natural quality. With the growing awareness even the governments of various countries have setup a separate body to monitor the whole Organic Processing System, in India that being National Program for Organic Production (NPOP). India is one of the upcoming leading processors in this sector.

Some private standards demand that organic food should fulfill the criteria of wholesome nutrition, where processing methods must be seen as relevant tools. Most processing methods have more or less strong influences on product properties. Heat treatments have in general a negative impact on food with regard to nutritional quality particularly on lipids, proteins and vitamins, but with regard to food safety heat treatments have a positive impact. A product cannot be sold as organic without organic certification so there is full traceability and authenticity behind the organic label. Organic Farming is all about working with nature rather than against.

Some of the important standards to be specified, if the label on a product says: ‘Organic’

  • No Genetically Modified Organisms
  • No pesticides
  • No artificial fertilizers
  • No Cloned or artificial genetic breeding
  • No artificial additives
  • No hydrogenated fats

Organic Agriculture is a holistic production management system which promotes and enhances agro-ecosystem health, including biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. These farm practices are more environmental-friendly, applying technologies for food processing that reduces chemical and energy consumptions and emissions as well as novel analytical techniques for R&D. These technologies and processes also reduce the generation of process-induced toxins (e.g., trans fats, acrylamide, D-amino acids) according to consumer perceptions.

Organic is the fastest growing sector of the food industry with global sales approaching US $40 billion in 2006. The largest increases in organic food production have been in Asia, Africa and Latin America. All three regions have reported triple-digit growth in organic farmland since 2000.

Following processes listed are used for organic food processing techniques:

  • Clarification
  • Skimming
  • Ultra filtration
  • Centrifugation
  • Pasteurization
  • Fermentation
  • Sterilization
  • Concentration
  • Preservation
  • Blanching

Vacuum Microwave Wood Drying averts cracks and discolouration

Wood Drying also known as Seasoning lumber or Wood seasoning refers to reducing the moisture content of wood prior to its use. Two main uses of seasoned lumber –
– Wood Working: used mainly as construction material as structural support to a building or woodworking objects.
– Wood Burning: used mainly for domestic or small scale commercial purposes.
Wood is divided, according to its botanical origin, into two kinds: Softwood and Hardwood. Softwoods are from coniferous trees and hardwoods from broad-leaved trees. Softwoods are lighter and generally simple in structure hence easier to process, whereas hardwoods are harder and more complex due to which permeability of hardwood is very, making it more difficult to dry. The density of softwoods ranges between 350 kg/m³ – 700 kg/m³, while hardwoods are 450 kg/m³ – 1250 kg/m³. Both consist of approximately 12% of moisture. In spite of the fact that there are around a hundred times a greater number of types of hardwood trees than softwood trees, the capacity to be dried and processed quicker and all the more effectively makes softwood the principle supply of commercial wood today.

There are two main Microwave wood drying methods namely

  1. Vacuum microwave dryer
  2. Non vacuum microwave dryer

Non Vacuum Microwave Dryer is commonly used for regular drying whereas Vacuum microwave wood dryer is a high tech and quality drying way. It is applied for high quality required and hard wood drying. Vacuum microwave dryer could rapidly evacuate dampness under a low temperature. The wood interior air has an impact on wood drying capacity. Positive air permeability has a superior drying result.
Features of Vacuum Microwave Dryer:

  • Process drying wood in confined space
  • Lower pressure to accelerate moisture movement out of wood
  • Shorter drying period compared to conventional drying
  • Maintains original wood color with minimum discolouration
  • Heat both internal and external of wood
  • Kills all kinds of insects to avoid wood mildew and other issues
  • Better drying result
  • Lower energy consumption,
  • Large capacity,
  • Suitable for expensive or high quality wood.
  • Energy saving and environmental friendly
  • Averagely drying to obtain quality wood
  • Reaches accurate water percentage, without deformation and crack

KERONE has constantly been the choice of multiple customers for its extensive ‘hands-on’ experience of application of electromagnetic radiation in wood drying industry. Demystifying the intensive process of wood drying we provide various machinery facilities and assistance to our esteemed clients as per their specific process requirement.

Efforts of Microwave and Infrared Radiation in Chemical Pulping pay off

Pulping is a procedure that separates fibrous material and cellulose from wood or other crude material as a prelude to papermaking. The reason for pulping is to free cellulose strands from other chemicals and polluting influences in the wood (or different fibrous source). Before wood can be pulped, it must experience debarking i.e. expelling bark mechanically or hydraulically and then sending the debarked wood into a chipper to cut them into small pieces ready for pulping. Pulping can be done by three processes –

  1. Mechanical – Using machines like revolving disks to prepare the pulp for paper making.
  2. Chemical – wood chips are cooked in a combination of chemical solution to remove cellulose or lignin from the wood.
  3. Semi-mechanical – a blend of mechanical and chemical.

Here we understand the process of Chemical Pulping in detail. As known it is a method of converting the wooden chips into damp pulp for paper making or processing, by cooking the wooden chips in a chemical solution to extract lignin or cellulose content which is primarily responsible for reducing paper quality and permanence. Chemical Pulping has two primary methods of processing –

  • The Sulfite process: cooks wood chips in sulfurous acid combined with limestone to produce calcium bi-sulfite. The combination of sulfurous acid and calcium bi-sulfite dissolves the lignin in the wood and liberates the cellulose fibers. Sulfite pulp is soft and flexible, is moderately strong, and is used to supplement mechanical pulps.
  • The Sulfate Process: evolved from the soda processes developed in the nineteenth century using strong bases to digest wood. Pulpers began adding sodium sulfate (correctly known as sodium sulfide) to the soda process and a significantly stronger pulp was produced. This process is more accurately known as the Kraft process (after the German word meaning ‘strength’)

Advantages of Chemical Pulping in production of paper:

  • Stronger fibre in paper
  • Highest quality printing and writing papers
  • Fewer impurities
  • Wastages can be used as fuel
  • Brighter papers produced

KERONE has always been the decision of various clients for its broad ‘hands-on’ involvement of use of microwave and infrared in the paper processing industry. Demystifying the comprehensive procedure of chemical pulping, we give different machinery facilities and help to our regarded customers according to their particular procedure requisite. Chemical Pulping is the most prominent strategy used for pulping giving the best outcomes with average yields, use of microwave and infrared radiation escalates the quality and yield result by more than 20-30%. Diminishing natural effects is likewise a critical viewpoint for any preparing industry, and thus the entirety of our hardware and arrangement improvement is centered on limiting utilities consumption and better water and vitality stewardship, decreasing the product losses and wastages produced by the procedure.

How do you make Dairy products fit for consumption?

Dairy products are basically products made from containing milk of mammals, which include food products like yoghurt, cheeses and butter among others. These products have been a part of staple food in many countries and used in traditional cuisines as well. Rates of dairy consumption vary widely worldwide. The consumption can be as high as 150kg per capita and also under 30 kg per capita in some countries.

Milk is a valuable nutritious food that has a short shelf-life and requires careful handling. Milk is highly perishable because it is an excellent medium for the growth of microorganisms – particularly bacterial pathogens – that can cause spoilage and diseases if consumed without precautions. Hence, milk processing, this allows the preservation of milk for days, weeks or months and helps to reduce food-borne illness. The usable life of milk can be extended for several days through techniques such as –

  • Clarification – particles with dense solids are separated from continuous milk phase.
  • Skimming – separation of cream from skim milk.
  • Whey Separation – separation of fat.
  • Centrifugation – process similar to clarification but more precise on particle sedimentation.
  • Pasteurization – heat treatment process to reduce the number of possible pathogenic microorganisms.
  • Fermentation – cooling to a specific temperature to influence the quality of raw milk.
  • Concentration – process of preparing products like butter, cheese and ghee with long shelf lives.
  • Preservation – process of instigating the natural inhibitors in milk (e.g., lactoferrin and lactoperoxidase) prevent significant rises in bacterial numbers for a limited period.

India in Dairy Processing:

  • Output of around 163.7 million MT, India is the largest producer of milk globally
  • India’s milk production is expected to reach 180 million MT by 2020
  • Indian dairy market is amongst the largest and fastest growing markets in the world
  • India has attained the top position in milk production globally, owing to a huge bovine population. However, the full potential of Indian milch herd still remains unattained
  • Per capita availability of milk in India has reached 352 grams per day
  • #1 in the world for production of milk
  • India’s dairy products exports is around USD 0.3 Bn in 2016-17
  • Major destinations for India’s dairy exports are UAE, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal

The discrete choice for heating and drying solutions: Ceramic Heating Systems

Ceramic is an inorganic non-metallic solid made up of either metal or non-metal compounds that have been shaped and then hardened by heating to high temperatures. In general, they are hard, corrosion-resistant and brittle and been in use for thousands of years. We have practically been living in a ceramic world as almost every material like; Glass, tiles, pottery, porcelain, bricks, cement, diamond, and graphite, contains ceramic.
Ceramics are also called as “refractory” materials, which is a material science term that means competent of putting up with everyday abuses like extremes of temperature change, attacks from acids and alkalis, and general wear-and-tear, these properties makes the material durable, better functioning and economical. Understanding all these exceptional properties, it is also being used in various Industrial heating systems.
Ceramic heating systems, whether emitting microwave or infrared rays provide heat by sending electricity through the heating plates. As the plates get warmer, they heat up the aluminium baffles. Then, a fan blows the warm air from the baffles and into the room. One of the many benefits of using this type of heater is that it provides a constant source of heat but doesn’t get hot enough to pose a fire hazard or burn risk. Since the heating elements in this heater are completely surrounded by the ceramic parts, it is safer than most other types.
Some significant features of these Industrial systems:

  1. Efficiency and Speed – These heaters do not waste a lot of energy.
  2. Overheating Prevention and Security – Fans and thermostats inside the heaters prevent it from overheating.
  3. Convection over Radiation – These heaters work by way of convection heating.
  4. Size and Portability – Easily portable as not huge in size.
  5. Safety Features and Characteristics – able to operate at a low temperature and do not emit any poisonous fumes or chemicals.

Facts and Figures of Microwave Radiation & Heating

In the growing technology and cut throat environment for engineering, industries and demanding new and improved processing methods which can be implemented for a wider variety of materials and can yield better physical and mechanical properties of materials than conventional routes. Presently wider varieties of non-conventional processing methods are in use, but energy consumptions and processing time requirements are the main issues. Hence, Microwave radiations are found to be advantageous in terms of qualities imparted to the materials in terms of physical, mechanical, metallurgical, etc. and along with this energy and time savings during processing.
Microwave heating is a process whereby microwave rays produced by magnetrons are directed toward reactants or heating medium, which absorb the electromagnetic energy volumetrically to achieve self-heating uniformly and rapidly. These microwave rays are electromagnetic radiation and the frequency range lies between 1 and 300GHz and these microwave frequencies with different wavelengths are used for a wide variety of applications. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), for heating purposes in industrial, scientific, and medical systems has reserved 915 MHz and 2.45 GHz frequencies. The heating by microwaves involves direct absorption of radiations by materials, then converts it into heat energy, and leads to volumetric heating of materials. The work of the authors reported that microwave heating consumes 10–100 times less energy and 10–200 times lesser processing times compared to conventional routes. Materials placed in the microwave environment are classified as insulators, conductors, semiconductors, and superconductors.

The heating prodigies are different for conventional and microwave processing of materials. Conventional processing methods involve heating the surface and then transferring heat into the materials by the phenomenon of conduction, convention, and radiation; whereas in microwave heating, the electromagnetic energy gets converted into heat from within the material, which moves toward the outer direction from the core/center of materials.
This microwave heating mechanism offers many advantages over conventional heating due to the following factors:

  • The direct absorption of microwaves by materials allows volumetric heating which produces enhanced diffusion rates, reduced power consumptions, and lower processing times.
  • These characteristics of higher heating rates and higher diffusion rates allow improvements in physical and mechanical properties of the microwave-processed materials or components owing to which defect rates are lower.
  • Further occurrence of volumetric heating provides selective heating and uniform heating, leading to decreased processing temperatures, reduced thermal gradient, reduced heat-affected zone, and lower environmental hazards.

In recent years, the utilization of microwaves in various applications has increased many folds. The various processing domains where this technology has been applied successfully are:

  • Communication systems
  • Food processing, wood drying
  • Enhanced chemical reactions
  • Vulcanization of rubber
  • Processing of ceramics and metallic materials
  • Steel making
  • Glass tempering
  • Joining of materials
  • Welding, waste treatment
  • Recovery of alternate sources of energy
