The Challenge: Unnecessary Waste
In today's atmospheric gassing systems using endothermic gas or nitrogen/methanol, only 2% of the gas is actually diffused into the work pieces, 98% remains unused and is burned-off and released into the atmosphere. This is not only questionable from an environmental standpoint, but also represents a squandering of resources resulting in unnecessary costs.
The Opportunity: To Build Something Better
Our research and development team, Team Innovation, is busy every day designing for the future. And when they looked at atmospheric technologies, they saw a huge opportunity hiding in a dinosaur-sized carbon footprint, one of the largest culprits of energy consumption in thermal processing - Endothermic generators.
Endothermic generators get the job done, but often lack the adjustment capabilities to efficiently handle the fluctuations of demand at the generator, furnace and ever-changing natural gas suppliers, not to mention the waste of burning off the process gas during generation.
The Solution: HybridCarb®
Ipsen's new process gas-recycling technology saves energy and resources by decreasing energy consumption and carbon footprint resulting in immediate cost savings without the hassle of a major change in operations. HybridCarb is a gassing system that provides precise process gas control. Instead of burning it off, the process gas is recycled, reconditioned and reused increasing efficiency up to 90%. The HybridCarb system allows for a reduction of more than 40 tons of CO2 per year - the equivalent of planting 220 trees a year!
