The industrial sector is one of the most important energy consumers. That is why the recovery of waste heat in the industry through Rank® equipment represents a measure of energy saving and efficiency that provides significant energy, environmental and economic benefits.
Some industrial sectors of interest
The main heat source is found in the exhaust gases of ovens and furnaces.
The waste heat of boilers and steam generators can be used for electricity generation.
Many of the chemical processes require cooling stages, being possible to recover the waste heat of these processes.
The ceramic industry consumes and emits large amounts of energy, highlighting as waste heat sources the exhaust gas streams of ceramic kilns.
It is a sector similar in terms of energy consumption to the ceramic sector, with a great potential for the recovery of waste heat.
The food industry consumes large amounts of energy, but has low temperature waste heat sources. The Rank® equipment can produce electricity from these waste heat sources.
