CTI FOR EFFICIENT HEATING
The commercial and industrial process heating markets combined represent a $28B market that contributed to a massive twelve percent of global GHG emissions in 2020.
Commercial heating refers to the heating of commercial buildings like shopping malls, offices, universities, and hospitals. Industrial process heating is the use of thermal energy used directly in the preparation or treatment of materials used to produce manufactured goods, and could include chemical, pharmaceutical, steel, and mining, among others. CTI can reduce emissions in the commercial heating sector by replacing gas and coal fired boilers with clean RF heating technology.
Likewise, CTI could modernize industrial heating processes, which have not experienced a significant technology update in nearly one hundred years – since the introduction of the pressure vessel.
California, New York, and the U.K. all have legislation around, or outright bans on, the sales of fossil-fuel boiler systems. A growing number of major cities have voted to ban natural gas use by 2050 – the drive for a cleaner, more efficient technology is strong and clear.
RF ADVANTAGES FOR INDUSTRIAL PROCESS HEATING
Volumetric heating means RF can deliver energy to a large volume of water, as opposed to only the surface area of water near an electric heating element or a pipe that has been heated by gas combustion.
RF energy provides significant improvements to heating efficiency versus a typical heating element that relies on conduction, as it can deliver energy directly to each water molecule.
Efficiency improvements, combined with volumetric heating capabilities, could allow a CTI system to heat a large volume of water quickly enough to provide on-demand steam or hot water, even in cases where traditional boilers must maintain a high temperature in a large volume of water 24x7x365.
