  • Smaller Specialized Exhaust Recovery Silencers
  • Special Heat Transfer Configurations
  • Recirculating Engine Jacket Water Boilers

System Function
BTU is transferred from the exhaust stream to heat sinks such as water, glycol, therminol fluids, or steam production. Suitable fuel types for combustion sources include natural gas, propane, digester gas, diesel fuel, and light to heavy fuel oils.

Proposal Considerations
  • Large or Irregular Exhaust Connections
  • High or Varying Exhaust Temperatures
  • Particular Pinch Point Requirements
  • Exhaust or Liquid Control
  • Special Heat Sink Requirements
  • Special Heat Transfer Metallurgy Requirements
  • Specific Maintenance Concerns
  • Optional Equipment Requirements
  • Installation Space and Weight Concerns
  • Package System Requirements
Anticipated Results
  • Tremendous fuel savings typically pay for equipment and installation within 1 to 3 years of average use.
  • Pollution reduction due to lowered annual fuel usage.
  • Lower exhaust temperatures and significantly reduced sound output levels (final sound attenuation is typically 15 - 25 dBA).
