The electrification of heating processes is a smart way to reduce CO2 emissions from your production, while improving both efficiency and the work environment. At Thermprocess, Kanthal will show that electric heating solutions are readily available today, also for high temperature processes, such as heat treatment of steel.

Electrifying your furnace has never been easier

CaptionDilip Chandrasekaran, Business Development Manager, Kanthal.On the theme Electrification of heating processes – the road towards a fossil-free industry, Dilip Chandrasekaran, Kanthal Business Development Manager, will speak at the Thermprocess Forum. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn…

  • How switching from gas heating to electric can effectively make heat treatment processes emissions-free.
  • How electric heating can deliver thermal efficiency of over 90 percent.
  • Why electric heaters offer effectively maintenance-free operation.
  • How electrification can reduce or remove CO2 emissions in a number of steel making processes.
  • Why electric heating technology is set to play an important role in the steel industry’s transition to a fossil fuel-free future.

Listen to Dilip Chandrasekaran, Kanthal Business Development Manager, at the Thermprocess Forum, on June 14, at 4-4:30 pm.

Meet three of our experts

Kanthal’s experts on electric heating technology are happy to discuss all the possibilities with electric heating during the Thermprocess exhibition. We spoke to three of them ahead of time to give you a sneak peek.

Onintze Achutegui - Technical Marketing Manager

CaptionOnintze Achutegui, Technical Marketing Manager, Kanthal.“The steel industry wants to make the step forwards to be fossil-fuel free and we are here with our expertise to help make it possible. The future will be green and more sustainable, but we will still have the need to heat up different processes to high temperatures and electrical heating is the most sustainable solution. Electric heating can reach temperatures as high as 1850°C and I would say that nearly everything can be electrically heated but not all processes can be gas heated.”

“Come visit the Kanthal stand at Thermprocess and I will be happy to discuss it further. We haven't just started working with electric heating because of new market demands – We have over 90 yearss experience. We are continuously developing electric heating solutions and have the largest portfolio on the market. Just let us know your requirements and we will design the best electric heating solution to meet them.”

Jesper Ejenstam - R&D Manager

CaptionJesper Ejenstam, R&D Manager, Kanthal.“For me, electric heating is more than a technology. It is quiet, efficient and an effective path to sustainable global growth.”

“Kanthal is built on innovative materials. It’s the cornerstone of our technology platforms and allows us to continually solve challenging problems. From an R&D point of view, I want to make sure we fully understand where our customers are heading as well as how they define success metrics in their operations. This is the basis on which we design new and improved solutions for maximum value generation for our customers.”

“For this reason, meeting face-to-face at events like Thermprocess is very important to me. It is also a great opportunity for you to meet our experts at the same place at once.”

Jesse Franklin White - Strategic Area Manager

“Direct replacement of fossil fuel gas burners with electric heating can be a fast and cost-effective way to reduce the environmental impact of thermal processing. But besides having a far lower environmental impact, electric heating also enables superior process control in any thermal system.”

CaptionJesse Franklin White, Strategic Area Manager, Kanthal.“Come and visit us at Thermprocess and discuss electric heating possibilities with a market-leading and innovative technology supplier. I’m looking forward to discussing what are the possibilities for electric heating to transform your industrial operations. Electric heating is the future!”

Visit our stand and electric heating come to life

Electric heating is not a new-fangled trend. Kanthal has over 90 years of experience in the field, controlling the value-chain from heat resistance materials to electric heating elements and furnace-ready solutions. Step into our furnace at Thermprocess to experience the look and feel of our products. Although we can’t turn the heat on for real, we can assure you that our products meet temperature requirements of up to 1850°C, hot enough for heat treatment of steel.

We also urge you to try your electric heating knowledge in our quiz. For every submitted answer we donate 10 euros to WWF. Let’s care about the planet together!

You’ll find us in Hall 10 at booth B72.
