Heat Recovery from Compressed air


Energy cost reduction strategies are vital to staying competitive. One major source for optimization often overlooked is recovering the heat generated by compressors. Since as much as 100% of the electrical energy used by an industrial air compressor is converted into heat and 96% of this energy is available for recovery, the potential for savings is huge.

This heat is a gold mine of savings--Nearly all of this thermal energy can be recovered and put to use for a wide range of applications:

  • Preheating boiler water
  • Makeup air heating
  • Supplemental space heating
  • Heating process fluids
  • Water heating for showers, bathrooms, etc.
  • Industrial process heating
  • Heat-driven chillers
  • Heating food and beverage products

 The key to unlocking these savings is to have a properly designed system with heat recovery integrated. Contact us for help in optimizing your system and getting it heat-recovery-ready!
