RFID Helps Heating Systems Stay Sludge-free
Maintenance workers can use a smartphone app and NFC RFID technology from Tagproduct to monitor and adjust Temiq's Ninox device, which is designed to remove particles from water circulating in a boiler.
Jul 27, 2015—
French heating systems component manufacturer Temiq added Near Field Communication (NFC) RFID technology to its desludging equipment for use in boilers, in order to enable its customers to better track the conditions of the equipment they use. The company's Ninox desludger, released in May of this year, employs radio frequency identification technology provided by Tagproduct, a French provider of RFID hardware and solutions.
Temiq's Ninox device removes sludge from water circulating in a heating system. The company's customers using the desludger are typically service providers specializing in environmental engineering and maintenance, as well as heating systems. The Ninox is designed to protect the pipes, since sludge causes corrosion over time and affects the heating system's performance, leading to a 10 to 15 percent increase in energy consumption, says Muriel Chenebault, Temiq's marketing director.
In addition, if users wish to learn how much sludge has been collected, they would use a control box attached to the device, and would need to plug a cable between an Ethernet port and the control box.
