Turn up the heat

New Technical Specifications on electromagnetic nearfields

Safety is a crucial concern for anyone working in industries that use electroheating. The IEC has established key International Standards in that area under the remit of  IEC Technical Committee (TC) 27: Industrial heating and electromagnetic processing. The TC, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, is not resting on its laurels and has just issued two major publications on electromagnetic nearfields.

Energy efficiency to recover power for the future

IEC work helps tap the biggest pool of available energy

Energy efficiency (EE) is the most important and easily available source of energy; it can be collected along the entire energy chain, from generation, transmission and storage to final use in industry, homes or transportation. IEC standardization and conformity assessment (CA) work are central to electrical EE at all levels.

Electroheating: clean and energy-efficient

Find it in everything from metals to food

Electroheating, the high-power heating of material using electrical energy, is widespread in many industrial sectors. It is used for processing elements ranging from metals to glass, ceramics, polymers and natural fibres. It is also widely employed in the food industry. In general it is more energy efficient than other industrial processes relying on fossil fuels as well as being significantly cleaner and offering better quality finished products as temperatures can be more precisely controlled.
