Resource efficiency and sustainability are now major issues in many companies.
Processes are put to the test and examined for their potential for optimization.
One of the most important factors is energy management, where enormous savings can be achieved. In this context, the selection of the appropriate control technology is of great importance. We are happy to support you – with more than four decades of experience in the development of standard and customer-specific solutions.
Take advantage of the extensive know-how that our specialists have acquired in numerous successful projects. Customers from industry and a wide range of sectors have been able to achieve significant increases in efficiency with our products. In this way, they have not only reduced their operating costs, but also reduced their environmental footprint at the same time.

HESCH solutions are successfully in use in numerous industries
Professional controls - scalable or individually developed
A manufacturer of innovative heating solutions was looking for a controller with which all the heat generators in a household could be individually controlled. The goal: Cost-effective, environmentally friendly energy, e.g. from photovoltaic systems, should always have priority. Based on the requirements, HESCH developed a system controller that controls all functions via a central control system and networks all heating components with each other. In this way, the energy costs of a household are reduced through efficient use of resources.
Upgrading or retrofitting is also no problem thanks to the modular design of the system controller: the microprocessor structure makes it easy to adapt the entire system.
Filters in dust extraction systems must be cleaned regularly in order to remove dust from the ambient air in the best possible way. The valves should be pulsed at optimum intervals. The background: If the filter is cleaned too early, a sufficiently large filter cake cannot form. This is important, however, as it traps even the finest dust particles that would otherwise pass through the filter unhindered. If, on the other hand, the filter is cleaned too late, theflow resistance increases sharply and with it theenergy consumption of the dust removal system.
With its time-controlled and differential pressure-dependent valve controls, HESCH ensures that the filters are cleaned at the ideal time. For example, when using a 500 kW fan, dust collector operators can reduce electricity consumption (at a kilowatt price of 5 cents) by about 10 percent, saving about 22,000 euros in energy costs per year.
Many companies want to reducetheir energy consumptionbut do not know how to go about it. The key lies in optimizing the processes. In the past, an expensive PLC had to be used for this, which was also often oversized.
We at HESCH wanted to change that and therefore developed the multifunction controller (HE 5697 MFC): A controller with which you can even create complex sequence controls yourself – without any IT knowledge at all. You don’t need expensive external programmers or PLCs. Instead, you simply assemble the desired program sequence from ready-made function blocks by drag-and-drop on the PC. In this way, you can develop the optimum process control in no time at all and thus significantlyreduce energy requirements.
The production of food additives from milk requires a lot of energy. An industry player was looking for a way to reducethe operating costs of its casein drying plant and increase revenue. Until now, the drying rollers of the plant needed8 to 12 hours to reach the working temperature of 180 degrees. Due to the manual control, there were also repeated product losses because liquid casein was not evenly distributed on the rollers and therefore burned.
HESCH provided the solution with its multi-function controller: By using the MFC, it was not only possible to reduce the heating time for the rollers to 3.5 hours and save a lot of energy –in addition, the controller also regulates the surface temperature of the rollers and controls the filling level of the casein liquid. This now no longer burns, so that the yield could be significantly increased.
The operator of a large laundry also savesa lot of energy with the multifunction controller from HESCH. Here, the MFC takes over the entire
Control of the heat recovery system
and ensures that the two heat exchangers operate efficiently. The controller also ensures that there is always enough hot water for production and manages the supply of heating energy to other company buildings and the adjacent residential building. The MFC has reduced energy consumption by around 20 percent and increased resourceefficiency.
An entrepreneur from Saarland has developed a clever, resource-efficient solutionfor heating churches: Bench pads that can be heated electrically. For the control of the heating circuit he was looking for a simple andeffective solution, which he did not find on the market. We have developed a controller especially for this customer which controls the preheating time depending on the ambient temperature and thus saves energy. The controller is also very user-friendly and can therefore be easily operated by the pastor or sexton.
