Increasing sustainability and cutting costs in the textiles industry
High energy usage equates to high energy costs in this sector, which uses huge quantities of fossil fuels – both directly to power mills and produce heat and steam and power air conditioners.
Ideal for process industries, where steam is available in large quantities the Heliex system can be used to:
- Generate a low cost supply of electricity
- Drive a piece of equipment
- Re-energise low pressure steam
- Power an air compressor
The Heliex system works with 'wet steam,' unlike other power generation technologies, such as steam turbines, which require the more expensive 'dry,' variety. It also accommodates a wide range of steam pressures and varying flow rates, helping to utilise steam that would otherwise be wasted.
