Engineering
Solar Wall Configuration design for square footage and obstructions
Section that will maximize energy recovery
 
Fan Selection
• CFM determined by square footage
• CFM required for maximum energy recovery
• Electrical Requirements
– VFD Panels
 
Ducting
• CFM requirement and determine the size of ducting for low static
• Obstructions that would cause custom designs
– Walkways
– Steam piping
 
Install & Commissioning
Solar Hybrid Kiln Installation
Our Solar Hybrid Kiln will lower your CO2 Emissions
  • Harnessing Solar Energy
     

  • Increasing the R factor “insulation” of the kiln
     

  • Increase the efficiency of older units
     

  • Displacing hot saturated air with warm dry air
     

  • Less energy required to heat air
