AN ADVANCED WASTE HEAT RECOVERY AND ENERGY GENERATION SYSTEM FOR PIZZA OVENS (COOPERATED WITH McMASTER UNIVERSITY)

  • Challenge: To develop a pizza oven waste energy recovery (POWER) system that would capture waste heat (thermal energy) and convert it to electricity for in-store operations.
  • Application: Waste Heat Recovery.

An important element in one of the components of this waste heat recovery system was Isobar® heat pipes. The waste heat energy would be captured by the heat pipe and transferred to the thermoelectric generator (TEG) to convert it to electricity.  This could then be used in-store to meet lighting, point-of-sale terminals and hot water and heating needs.

HEAT PIPE ASSEMBLY DEVELOPMENT

  • Challenge: To implement Isobar® heat pipes into a rotational molding application to advance the heating process and improve part quality.
  • Application: Plastic Injection.

To make the process more efficient, the customer requested that we design and implement Isobar heat pipes to absorb the heat energy and effectively transfer it over the tool surface.
