Ceramic Sheets for Air ConditionerEnergy Efficiency Solutions
ms Inc. produces energy-saving air conditioning products, specifically energy-saving ceramic sheets. This latest product is called Reidan-kun, a ceramic sheet designed to be placed in the air intake vent closest to the heat exchanger of air conditioning equipment. Water molecules in the air are miniaturized by the infrared rays coming off of the ceramic, thus enhancing the efficiency of heat exchange via the resonance phenomenon.
In addition, Reidan-kun cools the room to the desired temperature more quickly than other products, increasing the outage time of the compressor in the outdoor unit. As a result, this saves a tremendous amount of energy. While the CO2 emissions total 1 kg, this amount is offset during installation through utilization of the carbon offset system.
In tests, studies and trial runs, prior to installing Reidan-kun, the temperature setting of the ceiling-embedded AC system was set at 10.0°C, with the air temperature emanating from the outlet being 6.0°C. Once installation was complete, that temperature was only 3.3℃. Therefore, the company has determined that a 20% energy reduction can be experienced when Reidan-kun is installed in ceiling-embedded air conditioning systems.
Major Features and Advantages
I. Energy Efficiency
As stated above, this product helps to make the room temperature reach the target temperature faster, and it can decrease energy usage by 20%.
II. Easy Installation
Reidan-kun just needs to be placed on the air intake vent, so complicated construction is not necessary. Also, even though Reidan-kun features a wide surface area, its size is still smaller overall than similar products from competitors. This makes it easier to install.
While the CO2 emissions from Reidan-kun production is at 1 kg, this is easily offset at the time of installation through the use of the carbon offset system.
3ms Inc. currently establishes sales agencies via overseas affiliates by country, with distribution of the products occurring through local sales agencies. As of the summer of 2017, this company has installed 13,000 sheets so far.
Place the ceramic sheet, Reidan-kun, in the air intake vent closest to the heat exchanger of the air conditioning equipment.
Large bodies of water molecules in the air are miniaturized by the far infrared rays irradiated by the ceramic contained in the Reidan-kun, improving heat-exchange efficiency through the resonance phenomenon. And Reidan-kun helps to cool the room to the set temperature faster. This will increase the outage time of the compressor in the outdoor unit and save energy.
In addition, although the CO2 emissions from Reidan-kun production is about 1 kg, this emission can be offset at the time of installation by utilizing the carbon offset system.
One domestic company maintains a competitive technology, but we think that Reidan-kun’s ceramic content is richer. Also, Reidan-kun has a wide surface area, although its size is smaller than the competing product’s, and it is also easier to install.
In addition, in regard to the technical logic of “why the heat exchange rate improves,” the competing product does not cause an activation of the refrigerant via the resonance phenomenon in the far infrared frequency band. Moreover, there are no effects such as the dehumidifying of SiO2, turbulence of airflow by shape, etc. Our company is planning to acquire domestic patents on Reidan-kun within the year.
Before installing Reidan-kun, with the temperature setting of the ceiling-embedded air conditioning system set at 10.0°C, the temperature of the air coming from the air outlet was 6.0°C. After installation, the temperature of the air coming from the air outlet was reduced to 3.3℃.
This test shows that an energy-consumption reduction of about 20% can be achieved by installing Reidan-kun in ceiling-embedded air conditioning systems.
Technical maturity / Past record of introduction
Our Reidan-kun rental business department began operations in August 2016 and has installed about 13,000 sheets as of the end of July 2017.
When installing the product outdoors (especially in a place exposed to ultraviolet rays), there is a risk that the low-density polyethylene constituting Reidan-kun will deteriorate or become damaged, or that it cannot maintain its original shape.
As a countermeasure, it is best to avoid outside installation. Thus, the education of sales agents is important.
