India spends annually 17,80,000 kilo litres of furnace oil or equivalent fossil-fuel for meeting 60% of thermal energy in industries for its processes. SUN BEST’s patented and proven solar air heating technology is a befitting and ideal solution to this enormous problem in an era of rapidly rising fuel prices
It is possible to reduce 25% to 75% consumption of fossil fuels like furnace oil, diesel, coal, firewood by using SUN BEST’s solar air heating system. SUN BEST has successfully demonstrated this in its numerous projects across wide spectrum of manufacturing/process industries.
The patented innovative solar technology developed by SUN BEST is used to generate hot air from Sun’s radiation using a device called Solar Air Heater; the Solar Air Heater is integrated in the roof of any industrial house in a large modular form. It heats fresh air with significantly high efficiency obtained due to detailed design of the collector taking into account the flow of air basing on Computerized Flow Design (CFD) models for high heat transfer. The hot air temperature obtained from the solar collector varies from 60°C to 100°C and above. This hot air will be used as a pre- heating system when the final hot air temperature needed is higher.
Using advanced automation and control systems, SUN BEST has innovatively made it possible to mix solar heated air with conventional fuel heated air to assure a constant process temperature in the dryer, ensuring significant fuel reduction. The SUN BEST solution thus prevents any fluctuations to the industrial production due to the variations in solar radiation across the day.
SUN BEST solar solutions through pre-heating have varied applications across manufacturing / process industries such as
