What is Energy Recovery

Recovering Energy from Industrial Processes includes any technique or method that reduces overall energy usage of a production site by exchanging energy from one sub-system to another. This Energy can have any form, but most recovery systems exchange Thermal Energy (Heat) in either sensible or latent form.

Energy Recovery Solutions

The generation of electricity and steam are important cost factors in production processes and key factors in reducing a factory’s carbon dioxide footprint. The exhaust gases from these units contain large amounts of enthalpy, providing a great recovery opportunity. The standardize ERD scrubber energy recovery skid, due to its large turn-down ratio, is capable of handling condensing exhaust air streams. Condensation is targeted so that it takes place in the scrubber only, preventing fouling in the piping network.

In many vapor extraction applications, such as dryers, the surplus energy in the exhaust stream requires treatment prior to entering the filter- or scrubbing unit (e.g. a quench chamber). Using the phase transition (condensation) of the humid air provides an especially great opportunity for the direct generation of steam and hot water using energy recovery skids and scrubbers. The general design rule that JOA applies is to make the energy provider the user of the generated (recovered) steam or hot water as well, making the control system as direct and easy as possible. In many cases the energy in exhaust-air can be effectively recovered while realizing a healthy industrial work environment and compliant emission levels.
