With the New EU Energy Label for home appliances – which will come into force in March 2021 – the existing labelling system will be replaced by a uniform energy consumption scale from A to G, with a seven step color scale.
The new labelling system will not represent a one-to-one conversion of the current energy classification, as a new measurement method will be applied, making it more difficult for products to be classified with the best energy ratings: a challenge to push the market towards increasingly resource-efficient appliances.
In January 2003 Nordson Benelux B.V. delivered upon request by Senter together with a consortium of four other Dutch companies, a complete boiler enameling plant based on Ferro’s electrostatic dry powder enamel technology to Leov Company in Veles, Macedonia in order to replace their environmental unfriendly galvanizing process.
Porcelain enamel provide a robust “glass-lining” to warm water tanks to protection them against corrosion caused by boiling water and is therefore used by leading manufacturers of electrical boilers, solar water heaters and/or other warm water containing applications.
Enameled mild steel tanks are typically used to eliminate expensive water tanks, made of copper and/or stainless steel, which are less suitable for operation in area’s with “poor water”.
