Bosch at ISH Energy
Convincing large-scale system presentation
Following the successful change of brand name from Loos and Köhler & Ziegler to Bosch in 2012, Bosch presented itself at this year's ISH Energy for the first time with its complete large-scale system portfolio. The high visitor frequency, the positive feedback on the new products and the new stand design under the Bosch brand all imply a convincing trade fair presentation.
An interactive multimedia table invited visitors to tap into the extensive project knowledge from over 110,000 plants supplied worldwide. Three products and two system combinations were demonstrated on the stand in the form of a CHP system, a four-pass steam boiler with waste heat utilisation facility and an ORC system. Bosch also debuted the prototype of a cross-technology system control. The innovative function "Condition Monitoring basic" for industrial boilers was another new product.
The product highlights at a glance:
"Condition Monitoring basic" for industrial boilers
The preemptive condition monitoring concept has a positive effect on maintaining a consistently high level of system efficiency and availability of steam, hot water and boiler systems. The BCO boiler control analyses, evaluates and transparently displays the system data via a traffic light model. Operating characteristics that could lead to a drop in efficiency, increased wear or unplanned stoppages can be determined at an early stage and thereby avoided.
Combining CHP and large boilers
The combination of a CHP and a self-firing flue gas boiler for process steam generation sparked particular interest. The steam boiler has an additional smoke tube pass, which uses the waste gas heat from the CHP for base load steam generation. Peak loads are covered by the integrated firing. The costs to the plant operator are 20 to 40 percent less than those for a separate flue gas boiler. Bosch can offer its customers all the components of this system.
Utilising waste heat potential – with ORC technology
Bosch ORC solutions use waste heat to generate electrical energy. They are suitable for all situations where large quantities of otherwise unusable waste heat are produced. ORC technology is a viable option in a wide range of sectors. It can also make sense to install an ORC system in conjunction with a combined heat and power plant.
A glance into the future of system controls
The cross-technology system control for large-scale systems is currently a major focus of development work at Bosch. Bosch presented a prototype for this system at ISH Energy. The new control unit will combine various products, including a boiler, combined heat and power plant, and accumulator, to form an efficient energy system linked by a single operating interface. This system control is due to be launched at the end of 2013.
Missed the ISH? Don’t worry – you can still visit us this year at the Drinktec trade fair in Munich (16-20 September 2013). You can find us at Stand 100 in Hall B6.
