Sustainability is a hot item. Virtually every self-respecting company tries to present as sustainable as possible. But what is sustainability, anyway?
A product is as sustainable as it has a long life, is made of recyclable materials and uses minimal resources and energy in the production process.
A process is sustainable if it also uses minimal resources and energy.
And that’s really the beauty of Apparatenfabriek “Aalsmeer” and its products: For over 100 years Apparatenfabriek “Aalsmeer” manufactures sound equipment, with a long service life, which, even after 50 years, you can still get spare parts, made ??of virtually 100% recyclable material and which is used to exploit and / or recovering available energy (heat). Because that is essentially the ‘sustainable’ description of a heat exchanger …. Apparatenfabriek “Aalsmeer” is actually quite naturally eco-friendly.
However,to leave it at that is not enough.
To make the production process more sustainable Apparatenfabriek “Aalsmeer” is investing in modern machines with lower energy consumption, regeneration of extracted welding fumes and other possibilities for reducing energy consumption.
The purposes of our products it is more and more emphasised on the use of heat and heat from natural sources such as solar, biogas and geothermal energy.
Some examples are:
Heat exchangers for heat recovery from wastewater
Flue gas coolers for cogeneration plants with biogas
Boiler Drum for storage of heat from solar collectors
Buffer tanks for heat pump systems
Of course there are plenty of other opportunities for sustainable use. We would like to think with you about applications for the use of natural energy and heat.
