Engine heat is increasingly being recovered to provide thermal energy for adjacent processes.
Over the years AR Industrial has worked with customers to develop co-generation solutions that harvest the enormous amount of waste heat generated by diesel engines using a wide variety of heat exchangers.
Typically, the two primary sources of recovered heat are engine jacket water and exhaust gas.
Adjacent processes that can use the recovered energy are (for example)…
• Heating required for manufacturing processes
• Heat for hot water circuits in air-conditioning systems
• Heating water used for hot water services
• Ammonia evaporation for chillers and freezers
• Heated air for process dryers
• Pre-heating water supply to boilers
AR Industrial designs heat exchangers to complement remote radiator systems to meet the specified design criteria.
In some cases the ability to dump engine heat can be assumed and remote radiators with reduced capacity can be specified. However, some applications require adequate heat rejection capacity in the remote radiator system to take over should the heat exchangers be taken off line.
We custom engineer the solution to meet the specified requirements.
