Emisshield is a NASA licensed ceramic material refined and patented by Emisshield, Inc in collaboration with Virginia Tech that saves energy while increasing production in nearly all heat driven industrial applications.

Emisshield can be utilized in the Hydrocarbon and Chemical industries, power generation, metal production, kilns, cremation, and a wide variety of other industrial heating applications.

Guy Nielson is ready to improve the efficiencies within many industrial applications to give our customers a quick return on investment through cost saving solutions such as Emisshield.





  Emisshield can be used in a variety of multipurpose kilns including both intermittent kilns and continuous kilns. Continuously fed kilns such as tunnel kilns will produce an average of 8 -10% in energy savings with the use of Emisshield, while coated intermittent kilns can reach energy savings of up to 15%. These impressive energy savings are a result of Emisshield’s ability to enable a kiln to achieve operating temperature 25% faster. Other benefits include product load improvements, production increases and reduced maintenance costs. By coating your kilns with Emisshield you will extend the life of the substrate which will reduce your overall maintenance costs and down time for hefty repairs.



Biomass boilers, waste incinerators, natural gas boilers, heat recovery steam generators and burners in the Power Generation Industry benefit in many ways from the application of Emisshield. The extremely high energy consumption coupled with the low fuel conversion efficiency provides significant opportunities for improved plant efficiency by utilizing Emisshield.

Past applications have been extremely successful for this industry. Emisshield’s emissive characteristics generate a number of benefits including fuel reduction, production increases and downtime reductions.
