Cadbury factory reduces energy consumption and operating costs for new dehumidification technology a chewing gum factory of power subsidiary of Cadbury Adams has the company reported by realized a new dehumidification system compared to conventional systems, their energy consumption by no less than 60 percent and operating costs by an extraordinary 50 percent. Initially, Cadbury-Adams, tried to preserve these conditions by using the installed sorption wheel, but the wheel tended to emit heat, where the procedures needed substantial additional cooling. Under the strict production conditions and the high outdoor humidity and temperatures, the sorption rotors had to be replaced every 3 to 5 years. For these reasons, a dehumidification system was replaced according to the principle of the sorption rotor by a so-called ADVANTIX system, which operates on the principle of liquid desiccant. Chewing gum production requires a strict control of humidity and temperature conditions. The chewing gum production is a multi-step process, where each one different temperature and humidity required. With the installation of the Israeli ADVANTIX system, the chewing gum manufacturer in the location was annually 300,000 KW, corresponding to 60 percent, to save on energy costs.
The cost for the setting up of the system were 11 percent lower than for equipment with the sorption rotor, a return on investment (ROI) of 2.3 years and reduced operating expenses, so most effectively. The company reduced its maintenance costs and thus again inexpensively produced an excellent and popular product. ADVANTIX systems are used worldwide. These systems are based on a liquid dry system on the physical basis of the water in the dead sea. The system uses a non-toxic salt solution of water for the dehumidifying and air cleaning, which largely eliminates bacteria, micro-organisms and odors. There is a procedure to the cooling and dehumidification of air, which is based on the use of a hygroscopic, saturated solution of lithium chloride. The solution acts as a Sorbents used honeycomb structures of the air to be dried. The desorption of the solution is done in a separate process, which is operated with via heat pumps of heated Sekundarluft (E.g.
outdoor air, exhaust air, etc.). The solvent circulation is self-contained and requires no additional media with the exception of electrical energy. The ADVANTIX program consists of 3 different variants, the a) working alone on a current basis, b) as and/or in addition based on renewable energies, such as PV, heat, etc. and c) only on renewable energy. Thus, ADVANTIX is an interesting variation in the area of decentralized cooling and dehumidification of sorption wheels cannot be used. This applies in particular, because it is a stand-alone system, which bypasses the problem of condensate removal. But also in the area of the central air conditioning applications are possible especially due to the high COP values. ADVANTIX systems is a leading manufacturer of air conditioners and dehumidifiers, the very high Energy savings in commercial and industrial applications. As a pioneer in the use of liquid desiccant, ADVANTIX provides powerful air conditioners and dehumidification systems with cooling, control of humidity, significant energy savings and clean air free from allergens, bacteria and mold. With competitive investment costs for new and retrofit applications, ADVANTIX offers compelling economic efficiency, better performance, and an improved environmental performance.
