CHP Exhaust Gas Heat Exchangers
As the market leader for exhaust gas heat exchangers in Germany, we can look back at over 3000 successful projects. An exhaust gas heat exchanger uses the waste heat from combined heat and power plants, usually to generate hot water or to heat thermal oil.
Typical combustion gases or liquid fuels for CHP plant engines include natural gas, biogas, sewage gas, other special gases, diesel or vegetable oil. The choice of materials for exhaust gas channels, tubes and tube plates depends on the fuel used and the application. All equipment is tested and certified in accordance with the European Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC. Other certifications are available on request.
Additional equipment for exhaust gas heat exchangers includes exhaust gas bypass systems, insulation, heat recovery units with engine waste heat recovery and safety devices as required. For heavily contaminated or sooty exhaust gases, clean-in process systems from APROVIS improve the performance of the exhaust gas heat exchanger and can also reduce the level of service and associated costs.
// Application-optimised design
The exhaust gas heat exchanger is designed for the specific project based on the requirements in terms of type of gas, pressure loss, flow conditions, available space, etc.
