A Study of the Principle of Advanced Energy-Saving Furnaces
Keywords: Furnace, Thick Film, Energy Saving
Energy cost is becoming a bigger portion of the total ownership cost for furnaces. To lower the energy consumption, people have tried to improve the process (i.e., lower processing temperature) and to improve the furnace design. In our study, we examined the energy consumption impact of the following factors: 1. Heating method 2. Temperature control 3. Furnace body construction 4. Furnace construction material 5. Furnace operations Furthermore, we established a simplified model for furnace energy consumption. Using this model as a guidance, we discussed potential ways to reduce the overall furnace energy consumption. Originally in the Ceramic, LTCC, Polymer and Conductive Materials session.
