Flue Gas Heat Recovery

What is Flue Gas Heat Recovery?

Flue Gas Heat Recovery Systems are designed to recover unused energy from flue gases or process air and transfer this thermal energy to a water system which can then be exported to a point of use. In a market with ever increasing energy prices there is a focus on effective use of resources and restrictive CO2 gas emission requirements. It therefore makes sense to exploit the considerable amounts of energy found in flue gas, steam or other process heat exhaust and extraction systems.

The benefits of Flue Gas Heat Recovery are as follows:
  • Typically, 12-16% reduction in fuel usage and an equivalent reduction in CO2 emissions
  • Attractive return on investment periods
  • Constant pressure monitoring and compensation to ensure no detriment to processes
  • No condensation risks due to intelligent control system
  • Compact unit for ease of installation
  • Retrofittable.

The range of uses for this heat will depend on the application and temperatures of the system, however typically could be used for:

  • Heating of steam system make-up water
  • Heating of wash down water
  • Paint facilities / wash lines
  • Space heating / central heating
  • Domestic hot water i.e. toilets, kitchens, laboratories, showers etc
  • Boiler return water heating
  • Process heating
  • Combustion air pre-heating
  • Electrical generation (organic rankine cycle, steam turbine or expanders)
  • Absorption chillers
  • Drying.
