‘Boiler stack heat recovery’ plays an important part in the energy consumption and efficiency of any building. It involves a process where water is pre-heated, created by hot boiler flue gases, and the water-to-air heat exchange within that.
This is a century old process, one that allows large boilers to preheat feedwater thanks to the stacked heat recovered. It can also be used with smaller boilers in order to create on-demand hot water, which is growing in popularity as eco-friendly endeavors are endlessly being sought out due to the cost of energy, and the desire to help our earth as a whole.
The Benefits of Heat Recovery
As mentioned, there is both an eco-friendly benefit to maximizing a boilers efficiency as it relates to boiler stack heat recovery, as well as a financial benefit for any business type – and household for that matter.
Either of these benefits alone makes a strong argument for training in the various applications of boiler equipment; and when it comes to training for a career in engineering revolved around boilers, TFMCI is a cut above!
