Converting an industrial boiler into a condensing one can recover up to 90% of the heat that is usually lost. This is the principle behind a waste heat recovery technology called Flu-Ace.
Thermal Energy International is launching Flu-Ace in the UK and Europe through its subsidiary GEM. Flu-Ace promises greater fuel efficiency and a reduction in atmospheric emissions.
The firm says this is possible because Flu-Ace's novel direct contact (gas/liquid) design enables optimal recovery of both sensible and latent heat, even in widely varying operating conditions. Flu-Ace also removes combustion emissions.
Conventional heat recovery technologies require dedicated equipment for each boiler exhaust. However, a single Flu-Ace can handle a varying flow of flue gases emitted from multiple boilers. This results in a lower initial investment, cheaper operating costs and a higher return on investment. A full payback is achieved in under three years with continuing savings maintained throughout the unit's operating life.
The Flu-Ace unit's internal structure ensures maximum condensing heat and mass transfer. It enables an unobstructed flow of liquids and gases through the tower, providing continuous operation with limited downtime.
