Why Your Facility Needs a Waste Heat Recovery Unit

Waste Heat EconomizerConsidering adding a waste heat recovery unit to your industrial heating system but still on the fence? We know it can be a tough decision – especially since a waste heat recovery unit may not be a required component of your facility’s industrial heating system and can be expensive to implement.

Though every facility and industrial heating system is different, in most cases adding a waste heat recovery unit is a good idea and a decision that will benefit your facility greatly in the long run.

Reasons to Implement a Waste Heat Recovery Unit in Your Facility

Here are a few key reasons why your facility should be utilizing a waste heat recovery unit, if it isn’t already.

1. To Improve Efficiency

Efficiency has become increasingly important in all aspects of our lives, but it is especially important when it comes to large scale operations like those that occur in many facilities powered by industrial heating equipment. Capturing and recycling waste heat can make a significant impact when it comes to plant efficiency.

Taking the step to add a waste heat recovery unit to your industrial heating system can make a substantial difference when it comes to your facility’s ability to operate efficiently.

2. To Reduce Energy Consumption

With a waste heat recovery unit in place, your facility will consume less energy – it’s as simple as that. By repurposing waste heat and recycling it into reusable energy, you can decrease the resources required to keep your plant up and running at full capacity.

Reducing energy consumption can help you save money on your facility operating costs, and can help to conserve resources. It’s a win-win!

3. To Reduce Operating Costs

This is a huge one for many plant managers! Recycling and reusing heat energy that your industrial heating equipment has already created is a great opportunity to reduce your plant’s energy costs while continuing to operate at the same rate.

With a waste heat recovery unit, you can capture a significant amount of hot gas exiting your heating system and transform that exhaust into energy that can be repurposed in a variety of ways. This can help you save money on operating costs.

4. To Decrease Waste and Emissions

By capturing and repurposing waste heat with a waste heat recovery unit, you can significantly decrease the waste and emissions generated by your facility. On a large scale, this is great from an environmental resource conservation perspective.

On a smaller scale, this is great for your individual plant or facility for a number of reasons. It can help you reduce dangerous emissions and operate more efficiently. Additionally, in some cases, a waste heat recovery system can eliminate the need for another heat source altogether.
