Heat Recovery Systems
Waste heat recovery devices can be used in a wide variety of applications. Common applications include but are not limited to: Thermal Oxidizers, Steam Boilers, Fired Heaters, and Dryers. These heat exchanger devices simply capture or reclaim the heat that would normally be vented to atmosphere and transfer it to another medium such as a liquid or gas stream. This “free” heat is then utilized to reduce operating costs somewhere else the facility or plant. Examples of the using waste heat recovery in effective applications are: boiler feedwater pre-heat, combustion air pre-heat, building comfort heat, and/or simply producing hot water.
Anticipated results can be:
- Fuel savings typically pay for equipment and installation within 1-3 years of average use.
- Pollution reduction due to lower annual fuel usage.
- Lower exhaust temperatures and significantly reduced sound output levels (final sound attenuation is typically 15-25 dBA)
