How Heat Recovery Wastewater Services Work
Kemco’s Heat Recovery Wastewater Services recover potentially lost thermal energy by capturing the heat from the wastewater and using it to preheat the incoming fresh water. These wastewater heat recovery systems are extremely efficient and can be designed to provide up to a 5°F “approach”.
For example, if the temperature of incoming fresh water is around 60°F to 65°F, Kemco’s Wastewater Services will use our Heat Recovery System to effectively preheat that water to within 5°F to 10°F of the wastewater stream. That could be up to 60% of the original energy expended and you can expect a return on initial investment from 12 to 24 months.
Benefits of Kemco’s Heat Recovery Wastewater Services
Kemco’s shell and tube heat reclaimers are designed to be wall or ceiling mounted, so they do not use valuable production floor space.
Kemco heat reclaimers can be designed to provide more than one preheated temperature – perfect for hot and tempered water systems.
Stainless steel construction assures optimum corrosion resistance and longer operational life. Kemco’s Heat Recovery Wastewater Services meet or exceed TEMA standards for shell and tube heat exchangers.
Kemcos’ 4-Way Back Flushing System not only guarantees against plugging, but eliminates any need for manual cleaning of the exchanger. They don’t have to be taken apart and cleaned, which is often the case with other types of heat exchangers. That’s one more reason why Kemco’s Heat Recovery Wastewater Services come with a 20-year warranty.
Kemco’s heat reclaimers do not require the wastewater to be filtered prior to entering the unit, which is required for plate and frame units. This eliminates additional electrical consumption required by filtration systems and provides hotter wastewater to the reclaimer.
