Mingazzini suggests a modern approach to global market: rapid amortization of technological investments through plant efficiency.
The experience of an industrial partner is a decisive added value. This is demonstrated by Mingazzini, which, with almost a century of history and one of the highest number of installed boilers in the world and more than 10,000 plants built, is a reference point in the field of steam boilers for industrial use.
The company is based in Parma and is renowned both for the quality of the products supplied and for the advice that accompanies every stage of the process: from the conception to the design to the commissioning of the plants. Its presence in the global market for many decades allows Mingazzini to strategically support its customers.
Freeing up important resources through energy efficiency and saving ensures a return on technological investments, also by reducing management costs. The adoption of green systems is of advantage for the environment, but also for companies’ budgets. This is the solution proposed by Mingazzini, which has proved to be a winning approach.
In fact, energy saving, understood as less consumption but also greater availability of resources to invest on more strategic fronts in a highly competitive scenario, is an instance strongly expressed by the global market.
Eco-sustainability is a theme to which Mingazzini responds with increasingly advanced and efficient systems such as energy saving and respect for the environment, with maximum focus on the increase of exclusive energy recovery systems, designed to be flexible and tailored to the needs of individual customers and the various industrial sectors. In addition to the development of innovative systems for combustion with the progressive reduction of atmospheric emissions.
Green systems for Industry 4.0
Energy saving, emission reduction, management improvement, maximum efficiency are in line with the aims and requirements of the Transition 4.0 national plan (Industry 4.0). It is precisely in this area that the company has carried out numerous successful interventions in recent years, confirming its competence in important national and international production sectors, with particular reference to the food, textile, paper, pet food and thermotechnical sectors.
The application case of Latteria Soresina, a brand known throughout the world for the production of Grana Padano and other traditional Italian specialties testifies the level of efficiency and energy saving. Ten years ago, live combustion testing, efficient use of the boilers devices for energy recovery and the installation of accessories for the final control of combustion fumes have led brought to a net saving of around 10% of electricity and 5% of methane gas across the company, but technological developments in line with the Industry 4.0 concept have led to the interconnection of power stations and real-time analysis of data.
By connecting the steam boilers to the network and centralizing all the equipment, today it is possible for Latteria Soresina to constantly monitor systems, performance, consumption, levels and all the parameters needed to guarantee the best results. With this interface it is possible to control the steam boilers remotely, adjusting each plant according to the production flows and the required daily performance by a common device, reducing waste, dissipation and consumption.
Limiting everything to the actual daily needs, on every plant. A competitive result with added value: the possibility of tracing specific consumptions, i. e. kilos of steam produced per cubic metre of methane gas, creating a historical record over time. In this way it will always be possible to check the performance and analyse any deviations, even carrying out a predictive maintenance in the name of maximum energy saving and respect for the environment.
