EQUIPMENT: Process Heat Recovery System
January 1, 2007
MEGTEC: A new process heat recovery system is designed to reduce operating costs by capturing the heated air from process dryers, ovens and air pollution control systems and using it to heat or cool areas of a plant or process. The flow arrangement of the system consists of a slipstream of heated air drawn from an exhaust duct or stack and passed through a heat exchanger and then returned to the exhaust duct or stack. Fresh outdoor air is drawn in and passed through the heat exchanger, where it is heated and controlled to a set point of 70 to 125°F to provide supplemental heating or summer cooling. Energy recovery is possible with source temperatures as low as 200°F or as high as 700°F. Call 920.339.2787 or visit www.megtec.com.
