New Product: AEG’s ‘Thyrobox M’ power solution reduces energy consumption per kg of polysilico


Product Briefing Outline: AEG Power Solutions has introduced ‘Thyrobox M,’ which, it claims, is the most compact power solution that offers increased reliability and stability for the polycrystalline silicon deposition process. With advanced process monitoring capabilities, a 0.95 power factor and more than 99% energy efficiency, the Thyrobox M also reduces installation, commissioning and maintenance costs for the entire energy supply as well as building costs due to its smaller footprint compared to previous designs and competitor offerings.

Problem: Energy consumption remains a key cost contributor to polycrystalline silicon production. Efforts to reduce energy costs while also increasing production are vital, as is enhancing purity while reducing operating costs for energy consumption per kilogram of polysilicon.

Solution: Engineered with a modular design, the Thyrobox M is the world’s most compact polysilicon power supply. Depending on the type of reactor, its footprint is about 25% smaller than older Thyrobox solutions and up to 70% smaller than competing products. The compact design reduces installation, commissioning and maintenance costs for the entire energy supply as well as building costs. Warning system and troubleshooting features also minimize the risk of process interruptions in case of silicon rod cracks or melts. An integrated medium-voltage ignition enhances process stability.
Ongoing data collection and analysis through monitoring of energy consumption and silicon rods weight increase energy efficiency.

Applications: Polycrystalline silicon deposition process.

Platform: System solutions from AEG PS are designed to interface with the electrical power grid and to offer power solutions for mission-critical applications in harsh environments, such as power plants, offshore oil rigs, chemical refineries, and utility-scale renewable energy plants.

Availability: Currently available.
