Innovation has always been central to Bausano’s vision for the past 75 years. Today, Bausano is continuing to provide its customers with cutting-edge technological solutions and its Smart Energy Induction System aims to respond to one of the most important current issues: energy consumption.
For Bausano, a family company that has been designing and producing extrusion lines for plastics processing since 1946, promoting energy savings means encouraging sustainable production, improving performance, and, at the same time, respecting people and the environment.
The Bausano Smart Energy Induction System is based on the principle of electromagnetic induction applied to the barrel heating cylinder. By exploiting the heating effect of a metal when subjected to a variable magnetic field, this system can reduce energy consumption by up to 30% when compared to traditional resistive heating methods.
Advantages of Bausano’s Smart Energy Induction System:
- Faster heat-up times
- Induced eddy currents generate powerful resistive heating directly within the barrel wall
- Increased heating capacity
- Faster, tighter temperature control
- Higher temperature materials processing (beneficial for polyolefins)
- Maximum cooling efficiency
What do these advantages mean for Bausano customers?
The headline is that the standard efficiency of Bausano’s system is up to 30% higher than traditional resistive heaters, contributing to significant energy and cost savings and a subsequent reduction in both environmental impact and utility bills.
However, the benefits are not only experienced in terms of efficiency but also in the quality of the final product. As the heating is applied directly and uniformly to the barrel, the melt temperature is very close to the barrel temperature, contributing to a more homogenous gelification of the material. Furthermore, there is also no thermal inertia and, therefore, none of the waste associated with traditional heaters. The result is that the induction system is beneficial for customers across Bausano’s extrusion product range, including WPC, pipe, granule, profile and medical applications.
The Smart Energy Induction System can be applied to both single and twin-screw extruders to facilitate the production of a variety of polymers, including PVC and polyolefins. In conjunction with the other critical extrusion components, including the multi-drive system (for twin-screw), IE4 super premium efficiency motors and Industry 4.0 software, the result is not only much more efficient but more responsive and dynamic extrusion lines.
