Condensate recovery system

Reference: H.1.3

Recycle condensats in boiler to recover heat.

For manufacturing units using steam in heat exchangers( food-processing, textile industry)

Recovery efficiency 5 to 10 % of fuel energy consumption

Estimated pay back time short term : 2-4 years, medium term: 4-6 years, long term : 6-8 years (*)

Medium/long term

Energy contained in the steam condensates represents more than 10 % of the available energy; these condensats are evacuated at high temperature by steam traps ; if they are not polluted, they can be partially sent back in the boiler by an appropriate network.
