Waste Heat Recovery
There is a large amount of heat energy in the condensate that is discharged into the drain or released into the atmosphere as flash steam. Likewise, blowdown lines containing high temperature unusable water are a recyclable source of heat energy.
VCH-3, VCH-5 and VCH-8 are atmospheric and indirect heat exchangers that recover waste water (blowdown water) or flash steam as hot water that can be used in many different applications. The hot water produced by the VCH series is suitable for production processes, post-production cleaning applications, heating and many other applications.
VCH Series waste heat recovery units do not require an additional heat exchanger and operate at atmospheric pressure. It provides energy recovery in steam boiler blowdown, flash steam applications, condensate tank breather and autoclave applications.
