The industrial sector is one of the most important energy consumers. The recovery of industrial waste heat through Rank® equipment represents an opportunity to save energy and improve efficiency with 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 energy consumption to the ceramic sector, with excellent potential for recovering 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.
