Waste heat recovery systems for Flue gas and Exhaust air in the Beverage industry

Corrosion and fouling problems limit heat recovery in breweries, distilleries and soft drinks plants. We design and deliver a robust heat recovery system for your plant so you can recover more heat.

Achieve sustainability goals

Prevent Corrosion & Fouling

Reduce CO2 emissions

15% of energy is lost by flue gas or exhaust air leaving your stack

What is keeping you from recovering this waste heat?

Complexity?

It is complex to determine the best way to lower your energy consumption.

Corrosion of an industrial heat exchanger

Corrosive or fouling flue gases?

Your flue gas is potentially  corrosive or fouling.

The business case?

The payback time of waste heat recovery options must be less than 5 years.

HeatMatrix engineers and manufacturers heat exchangers to recover industrial heat and improve energy efficiency for the Beverage industry

Save up to 10% energy on your thermal process

Recover waste heat - that is now lost - from flue gas or exhaust air

Your thermal process has waste heat recovery potential

Recover more heat on steam boilers

Your flue gas is corrosive when you burn biogas, oil or coal.  Recovery of additional heat below the acid dew point is however possible. The heat is used to preheat combustion air or water

Waste heat recovery for Steam boilers

Your flue gas is corrosive when you burn biogas, oil or coal.  Recovery of additional heat below the acid dew point is however possible. The heat is used to preheat combustion air or water

Waste heat recovery for CHP systems

Your flue gas is corrosive when you burn biogas on your CHP. Recovery of additional heat below the acid dew point is possible. The heat is used to preheat water.

How waste heat recovery systems work

Our waste heat recovery systems for Breweries, Distilleries and Soft Drinks plants

Polymer Air Preheater

Warm up combustion air by extracting heat from flue gas. The air preheater is corrosion resistant, easy to maintain and to clean.

Stainless Steel or Polymer Economiser

Warm up boiler feed water, make-up water or CIP water with waste heat from flue gases. The economiser is corrosion resistant and is easy to maintain and to clean.

FAQ's

The thermal efficiency is the precentage of the combustion energy (Lower Heating Value) that is effectively converted to steam. The remainder of the heat is lost via the stack. The efficiency of a steam boiler lies in the range of 85 - 95%. By installing an economiser or an air preheater, the loss of heat in the flue gas is reduced and thereby the boiler efficiency is improved and CO2 emissions are reduced.

Sulphur in fuels like natural gas, biogas, biomass, coal or fuel oil gets combusted and forms SOx. Most of this is in the form of SO2 and 2% to 4% is present as SO3. This SO3 condenses when flue gas is cooled and forms sulphuric acid (H2SO4). This leads to corrosion of metal surfaces, ducts and stacks. This condensation reaction takes place when the flue gas temperature drops below, or the flue gas comes in contact with a surface temperature below what is called the Acid Dew Point. The polymer heat exchange technology allows flue gas to be cooled without having the risk of corrosion.

Making your boiler more efficient reduces its fuel consumption and therefor lowers fuel costs. Clients have improved their efficiency by 5 to 10% and achieved payback times on the project investment in the range of 3 to 5 years.
