Bosch presents its latest products and high-efficiency solutions at the ISH and Hannover Messe
Leaders in large thermal plants
Bosch will be demonstrating its system expertise and experience at this year's ISH trade fair in Frankfurt between 12 and 16 March 2013 and Hannover Messe between 8 and 12 April 2013, inspired by the theme "Leaders in large thermal plants”. Highlights will include solutions for the efficient exploitation of waste heat.
Bosch has accumulated extensive project know-how by supplying more than 110,000 systems for industrial, commercial, residential and public buildings, as well as local and district heating suppliers. Bosch's modular systems extend from heat supply systems based on industrial boiler plants, large-scale solar energy systems and heat pumps, to combined heat and power plants and ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) systems for waste heat recovery. Bosch is a strong partner to its customers at every stage of the project, from planning and support to after-sales.
A perfect match: CHP plant with a 4-pass boiler system
Combined heat and power plants present a viable alternative to conventional systems in many applications. A combined heat and power plant generates the electricity, while a downstream boiler system exploits the hot flue gases from the upstream combustion processes for the efficient generation of thermal energy and process heat. The boiler system is a conventionally-fired 3-pass boiler with an additional integrated fourth smoke tube pass. It is self-firing, to ensure a reliable supply of heat. Bosch can offer its customers all of the components of this modular complete solution.
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.
One step ahead with Condition Monitoring basic
Condition Monitoring basic is a new, innovative feature from Bosch for keeping boiler systems running efficiently and reliably. Condition Monitoring basic is operated from the BCO boiler control. It analyses and evaluates system data and displays it in a transparent way using the traffic light model. The calculation algorithms are aimed at providing a diagnostic forecast. Operating characteristics that could lead to a drop in efficiency, increased wear or unplanned downtimes can be detected at an early stage and thereby avoided.
A glance into the future of system controls
Multifunctional system controls for large-scale systems are currently a major focus of development work at Bosch. A prototype will be presented at the ISH, with the product launch planned for the end of 2013. The new control unit will combine various products, for example, a boiler, combined heat and power plant, and accumulator, to form an efficient energy system linked by a single operating interface. It has been designed with a focus on energy monitoring, and makes it easy to keep a track of and record energy flows and costs. It uses standard web browser technology so can be accessed from a standard PC, laptop, tablet PC or smartphone.
