Since the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, prices for electricity, gas and oil have rocketed. The situation on the world’s energy markets remains tense, with the high costs a huge financial burden for both consumers and industry. There is an increasing demand for alternative solutions to secure an economical supply of energy in the long term. This is where KHS comes in with its package of shrink tunnel conversions. With it, the Dortmund specialist for filling and packaging systems enables its clients to convert their existing machinery to a number of different forms of energy.

The customers can opt for conversion from one source of energy to another – from natural gas to electricity or liquid gas, for instance. They also have the option of switching the system between two types of gas or flexibly converting it to electricity. Conversion back to a gas supply can then be performed by the customer as required. This significantly reduces dependence on a single source of energy and increases the security of supply.

Conversions are available for practically all existing shrink tunnels and are installed by KHS specialists specifically trained for the job. There is usually no change in machine control for the operating personnel. With the reversible option the setup is changed by the customer either digitally in a matter of minutes using a selector switch on the HMI or by changing a module over (this takes just a few hours).
