Tools And Expert Help At Every Turn

"Black start" diesel generator provides stand-alone capability

Kyocera uses the waste heat from its cogeneration facility to feed the chillers that air condition the plant. Beyond power consumption considerations, the plant requires low humidity and an optimum furnace temperature range for the manufacture of its ceramic packages and other sensitive products. Originally, Tanaka investigated the possibility of using turbines for cogeneration; however, diesel generators proved to be a better match for Kyocera's chilled water needs.
