Toray Textiles saves energy thru Fuel+ from Maxsys

Oct '06
Synthetic fabric producer Toray Textiles Europe Ltd has achieved impressive energy savings of over 5 per cent per annum through the installation of the Fuel+ energy saving solution from Maxsys Ltd at its state-of-the-art textile production facility in Mansfield.

While the UK textile industry may have contracted, Toray is a progressive UK manufacturer that has invested in the latest technology and deployed innovative process engineering. Today Toray employs 350 employees and generates annual turnover in the region of £30 million.

Having weathered the storm of low cost overseas competition, soaring energy costs are the last thing required by any UK textile producer. With this in mind, Toray Textiles decided to investigate the Fuel+ from Maxsys as part of its strategic commitment to cut unit energy consumption by 2 per cent per annum.

Fuel+ operates by applying a precisely calibrated magnetic field to the fuel supplied to the burners. This pre-treatment process enhances combustion, thereby producing a cleaner burn and reduced carbon emissions. Fuel+ units are designed for installation into vertical or horizontal pipes, there are no moving parts and no electrical supply is required.

“Energy efficiency is an important issue for us at Toray and plays an integral part in our environmental policy,” said Mike Fisher, General Manager – Engineering. Toray Textiles, which is ISO14001:2004 certified, has an environmental policy that includes a commitment to manage responsibly its impact on the environment. One of its environmental principles states: 'to make efficient use of energy, optimise the use of energy where practicable, and minimise greenhouse gas emissions'.
