mycon installs first ControlMaster system

ControlMaster receives all necessary information via corresponding sensors. Using a specially developed program, this data is used to establish an algorithm that determines the optimum cleaning date


mycon has installed the first ControlMaster system for monitoring heat exchangers on the basis of algorithms as part of the BAFA-funded "Einsparzähler (smart meters)" project. The successful cooperation between mycon and the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Faculty of Technology and Informatics / Prof. Dr Ing Sankol) made it possible to quickly convert the data obtained into a comprehensive model calculation, which uses the mycon ControlMaster system to establish an algorithm for determining the optimum cleaning dates. ControlMaster can also activate automated cleaning processes itself, including any additional measures required.This enables considerable energy savings.

ControlMaster receives all necessary information via corresponding sensors. Using a specially developed program, this data is used to establish an algorithm that determines the optimum cleaning date.

Customer data from the successful cooperation with Energy from Waste Hannover GmbH and mycon’s own measurements have resulted in more than fifty thousand data records to date. On the basis of these data sets, calculation models have been developed which will lead to the creation of corresponding algorithms for different heat exchanger types / locations in the coming months. The optimum cleaning time determined can then be displayed or retrieved digitally. However, the ControlMaster measuring device can then also independently start automated cleaning processes including all additional measures required for this. This makes considerable energy savings possible.

Heat exchangers for cooling and air conditioning account for approx. 22 per cent of global energy consumption. There is a considerable potential for savings here through precise determination of the optimum cleaning time and immediate subsequent effective cleaning. mycon had already previously developed effective cleaning systems together with its sister company Kipp Umwelttechnik. Subsequently mycon developed automation possibilities for these systems.

ControlMaster determines the cleaning dates for the fully automatic and patented JetMaster AS cleaning system developed by mycon and installed at the customer. JetMaster AS cleans thoroughly and effectively with compressed air and only approx. 3 litres of clear water per minute.

mycon GmbH, a sister company of the service company Kipp Umwelttechnik GmbH, develops, manufactures and markets new products and automation technologies.

mycon GmbH currently services customers in approx. 40 countries.

Many years of experience in the field of industrial services led to several system developments and patents, some of which have received international recognition.

mycon GmbH supports customer groups from various industry and service sectors.
