Energy savings on autoclaves

Axitherm reduces the autoclave steam consumption of pasteurization or sterilization while preserving VP / VP and productivity.

Reduction of instantaneous steam requirements

Reduction of additional compressed air

Improvement of cooling efficiency

Objective: Save energy on autoclaves by revisiting your scale

The operation of an autoclave workshop is most often the result of a story, with grouping of equipment, modifications to the energy networks (steam, compressed air and cooling water), mix of models, creation of recipes and changes of ‘packaging. So many natural evolutions which may no longer correspond to the initial writing of the scales. Hence a slow but certain drift in productivity coupled with an increase in the energy consumed.
Axitherm re-writes the scales in accordance with the current capacities of the workshop, which instantly results in a reduction in autoclave steam consumption and sometimes even in productivity gains

Methodology to reduce steam consumption in autoclave

On-site evaluation : monitoring instrumented with the usual schedule and a full autoclave
Study of regulation parameters
Test phase: 1 to 3 shedule evaluations (partial load)
Possible study and ajustment of control parameters (PLC)
Validation of the optimized schedule: Fo / Po control and verification of savings made on autoclave under full load


Rapid implementation : of changes in 1 to 3 days per schedule
Delivery of a full report including resultts and comparisons
Validation Fo / Po for any program modification
Guaranteed integrity of your packaging
Advice for adapting optimized schedules to your future recipes
No significant material investment
