Cooking system for the food sector based on a new method of heat management and is developed starting from a joint research project between Verniciature Bresciane s.r.l. and the Polytechnic of Milan, Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering. It is a conductive paint based on carbon allotropes (nanomaterials) that will be applied to traditional glass, stainless steel, chromium carbon steel surfaces and to the external cladding of shaped surfaces, which will replace the heating systems in use nowadays ( electric heaters and gas burners). This is an experimental project that will use a varnish resulting from a joint research between Verniciature Bresciane s.r.l. and the POLYTECHNIC OF MILAN, Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering.
Replace the heating systems in use nowadays (electric heaters and gas burners). This project concerns the realization of a new product for the company and for the new market, and introduces new processes for the company.
It is proposed to employ nanomaterials (specifically, a conductive paint based on carbon allotropes) for the conduction of heat for cooking systems. By virtue of the next patent of the paint, it represents an absolute novelty for its application to cooking systems.
It is a matter of using a paint based on nanomaterials (allotropes of carbon) for the conduction of the electric current, to be applied to flat surfaces (cooking surfaces) and shaped (baskets for frying), replacing the traditional system of heat conduction, through electrical resistors. This system will allow a reduction of products used in production (resistances, magnet packs, supports) and during the use phase (the energies used for cooking).
The economic potential of the project lies in the ability of technology to reduce costs simultaneously in two directions. On one side, it is a matter of significantly reducing the energy costs of production which, for a plate of the same size, is today assumed to be equal to 62.09%. On the other side, the end user will have a product that, at the same performance, employs 73% less energy.
