Having paid to generate the levels of heat required to incinerate waste materials, it makes perfect sense to harness this commodity and convert it into useful energy such as steam, hot water or hot air for use either within buildings as a source of heating or as part of a production process.
As part of our plant specifications, we can design in all the technology and controls required to recoup what is in effect ‘free energy’.
Steam has many potential uses within an industrial process or for heating purposes and we can design any waste incinerator with the technology to convert what would be waste heat into this valuable resource.
Heat is recovered indirectly from the incinerator exhaust gases by passing them either through a gas tube heat exchanger or across a radiant tube boiler. Energy is exchanged between the gases and water to produce steam.
When the intention is for the steam to be used for Energy Generation such as electrical power production, it is further heated within a superheater to produce a dry steam to drive a turbine/generator set.
Economisers are fitted to the boiler outlet to recover additional energy from the flue gas.
Hot water is a key requirement within many industrial processes or it can be used as a method of generating the heating requirements of administrative and industrial buildings.
Heat is recovered indirectly from incinerator exhaust gases by passing them through a gas tube heat exchanger. Heat is then exchanged with the external water jacket to generate a cost-free supply of hot water.
Hot air is a much employed and invaluable resource for many of today’s industrial processes as well as for heating in modern industrial and office premises.
Heat is recovered indirectly from the incinerator exhaust gases by passing them through a gas tube heat exchanger. Cool ambient air is then blown across the hot heat exchanger tubes to provide clean air for factory and office space heating, pre-heated combustion air or process drying.
