Energy Recovery

Waste Heat Recovery Systems

The escalating cost of energy combines with the need for reduced CO2 emissions to demand more efficient energy recovery solutions, particularly in applications that consume a large amount of energy. One solution that can be effective is the recovery of energy from waste heat. Innovative waste heat recovery systems from Matthews utilise existing energy sources in order to efficiently generate thermal heat, process heat or electricity. The result: High efficiency, low emissions, cost reductions and lower consumption of resources.

 

APPLICATIONS

  •  
    Steam

    Heat is recovered indirectly from the incinerator exhausting gas 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 for heating or industrial processing.For more information, view the technical information document.

  •  
    Hot Water

    Heat is recovered indirectly from the incinerator exhaust gases, by passing them through a gas tube heat exchanger. Heat is exchanged with the external water jacket, generating hot water for district heating or for industrial processing. For more information, view the technical information document.

  •  
    Hot Air

    Heat is recovered indirectly from the incinerator exhaust gases by passing them through a gas tube heat exchanger. Cool ambient air is blown across the hot heat exchanger tubes, which provides heated clean air for factory space heating, pre-heated combustion air or process drying.

  •  
    Electricity

    Heat recovered from incineration procecesses can be converted to steam and used to power electrical generators. Size and capacity are carefully matched to electrical uses in order to maximize energy savings.  For more information, view the technical information document.
