WASTE HEAT RECOVERY
Waste Heat Recovery is the use of thermal energy that would otherwise be transferred to the environment to accomplish a useful function.
In many cases, Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) avoids or reduces the need for additional fuel energy input. Examples for internal combustion engines include:
- Use of engine coolant for cabin heat
- Turbocharging to increase power density
- Bottoming cycles to produce additional work from exhaust gas
- Integrated Exhaust Manifold to facilitate engine warm-up
Our WHR heat exchangers are custom designed to match the specific requirements of the application, taking into account weight, exhaust gas pressure drop and resistance to vibration and thermal loading.
Furthermore, our “Bend-A-Flex” shell and tube design has the best in class thermal loading capacity and will not fail if starved of coolant.
