Save and Recycle Energy
As an industry leader in the manufacturing of stainless steel processing equipment, Paul Mueller Company is committed to developing environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient solutions. Our products store, heat and cool liquids and we build them with a focus on the best ways to save and recycle energy during those processes.
We use stainless steel to build our high-quality equipment. The main alloying elements of stainless steel (chromium, nickel and molybdenum) are all highly valuable and can easily be recovered and separated from other materials for recycling. Much of the stainless steel in use today has been sourced from scrap materials. Stainless steel is one of the most durable and long-lasting substances in the world, largely due to its anti-corrosion properties, therefore our equipment is designed to last for a lifetime. And when you are ready to grow or upsize, it can be recycled back into use.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
When you compare stainless steel against other materials, stainless steel produces far fewer emissions than materials like aluminum and magnesium. read more, about how the emission footprints of stainless steel, especially those related to carbon, water and air, are minimized during its life cycle.
Stainless Steel Manufacturing
We have solutions aimed at reducing post-harvest losses, such as Hydrocooling and Solar Coolers. We have environmentally-friendly milk cooling equipment that incorporates Fre-Heaters to reuse heat from the milk on the farm. Our Brewery solutions have incorporated steam capture technology and ozonated water usage. And we have ongoing global efforts to re-condition used equipment in the dairy farming and pharmaceutical sectors to conserve resources. Solar Milk Cooling
Energy Efficiency and Water Reuse
Our specialized heat transfer design is crucial to the most efficient methods of heating and cooling liquids. So the production process at your brewery, dairy or chemical facility will use less energy from day to day. Our special heat capture technology allows for the reuse of one of the world's most precious resources, water. Through Temp-Plate® inflated heat transfer energy-bank design, companies using a chemical process to produce steam, can re-capture that steam, clean it and use it again for a reduced carbon footprint.
Longevity of Use
During the production of every piece of Mueller equipment, we are looking for ways to reduce waste from sheet metal cutting, recycle waste materials as much as possible and integrating energy efficiency into the design through our heat transfer technology. From suppliers to operations to partners to end-consumers, we are considering the whole value chain and encourage the responsible balance of resources and supplies for generations to come.
