Low Temperature Scrubber Exhaust Heat Recovery

"Outside the Box" Thinking Leads to Results

Kinergetics has extensive experience with process and facility heat recovery, including development and implementation of options that are “outside of the box.” 

At a large Wisconsin anodizer, four (4) process scrubbers continuously exhaust more than 55,000 SCFM of air causing unnecessarily high winter heating gas use.  The exhaust was nearly saturated and about 65°F all year. 

Staff previously tried direct recovery into the facility, which failed due to high humidity.

Kinergetics gives a tour and overview of the system to a local engineering chapter

Let's Take A Trip Back To 2011..

Kinergetics developed a passive (no chillers or heat pumps) low temperature heat recovery system using the cool

Plant engineers reported a near balanced building pressure and a 30 percent drop in natural gas use after the first month of operation.

These sucesses lead to the project winning the “2012 Enviornmental Innovation Award” from Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce.
