When a nationwide paper and cardboard manufacturer asked us to undertake a Boilerhouse audit, to assess the potential for energy savings, we quickly identified a significant opportunity for heat recovery from the returning condensate.

To prevent this waste in energy, which was due to condensate being flashed off and vented to atmosphere, we completely redesigned the condensate return system.

Once designed, we manufactured and installed the new heat recovery system, including a bespoke deaerator head, to return the total energy in the condensate to the feed tank.  As a result, the feed tank temperature has now increased from 70°C to 90°C, which in turn could lead to over £14,000 worth of energy savings per year and provide a return on investment in only 14 months.
