Heat recovery is one example of an energy optimization program. Some of the benefits from optimizing energy include:
Improved Equipment Performance. Improved productivity through process machine enhancements.
Enhanced Capacity and Efficiency. Engineering studies provide vital information you need to make the best decisions on process upgrades and equipment selection in order to ensure maximum process capacity and integration.
Reduced Operating Costs with Heat Recovery. Rising energy costs are forcing industry to take a hard look at operating efficiencies. Analyzing current energy usage can help discover ways to reduce consumption. Methods include energy audits and engineering studies to optimize airflow management, implement secondary heat recovery systems (which use heat exchangers), and optimize process and plant heating/cooling systems.
- Plant Heating and Cooling. Heat sources (direct, indirect, or semi-indirect), heater boxes or plenums may satisfy process heating needs. Steam or hot/chilled water can be supplied through the addition of waste heat boilers or adsorption chillers. In areas where building heat is required, water/glycol systems can be installed to capture heat from the process and used to preheat building makeup air.
