Nansulate Coatings installation completed at Arik Bey Tekstil
Industrial Nanotech, Inc, an emerging global leader in nanoscience energy saving solutions, announced that their Turkish distributor, Kolorgen Ltd, has completed installation of the Company's patented Nansulate thermal insulation coatings at the Beysehir, Konya, Turkey location of Arik Bey Tekstil Enerji ve Sinai Yatirimlar A.S. Nansulate High Heat thermal insulation and corrosion prevention coating was used for insulation of dyeing machines and associated steam pipes to reduce energy consumption, lower surface temperature, and reduce carbon emissions. Once the initial project is complete, the project will continue at each of their two factories, the other is located in Istanbul, Turkey.
“We are now at a stage that we are getting recognition from many other industries,” stated Vedat Bilgin, President, Kolorgen Ltd. “Over and over again, both in Turkey and other countries, we have proven to several industries that Nansulate surpasses all other forms of insulation in terms of energy saving capability, durability and long service life in harsh environments. We now have a few ongoing projects with some leading textile companies in Turkey and abroad, as well as companies in other industries."
Francesca Crolley V.P. Business Development, Industrial Nanotech, Inc., explains, “We have a very successful track record in the textile manufacturing industry for providing energy savings through insulation of equipment such as dyeing machines, steam pipes, boilers, and heat exchangers. We've worked with numerous textile companies, such a Coats plc who expects to reduce their steam consumption by 10 percent and their global carbon footprint by 2%, Henateks Textile, who documented an average 20% reduction in liquid natural gas with a 7 month payback, and numerous others, to reduce their energy savings significantly through use of Nansulate advanced insulation technology. Our textile and other manufacturing clients have been very pleased with the multiple benefits the coatings offer, which are energy cost savings, reduction of carbon emissions, and improved worker safety by reducing surface temperature and heat expelled into the environment.”
Arik Bey Tekstil Enerji ve Sinai Yatirimlar is owned by Akkanat Holding, a diversified group of companies, active in textiles, power generation and tourism.
