Half of the global industrial energy consumption is wasted due to the inefficient and complicated recovery of low-grade energy.
Heat in the form of vapor, hot water, or air is a result of almost any production cycle, but it does not have to go to waste. With smarter systems, it can be recovered and reused, contributing to the reduction of carbon emissions and to significant cost savings. The primary heat recovery solution in industry to date has been gasketed heat exchangers.
It is widely known that these require a lot of space and regular maintenance, and have high lifecycle costs. Brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs), however, offer the same power but are substantially more compact and are virtually maintenance-free, reducing their lifecycle costs.
