Other industry sectors
Thermal Energy’s GEM steam trap and FLU-ACE condensing heat recovery technologies have been applied in many sectors, from tire and rubber manufacturing, universities, and laundry operations, to mining and resources, construction, and more.
Typically about 18% of the energy used in a boiler plant is lost up the boiler stack. Our FLU-ACE technology effectively recovers this waste energy and uses it to preheat a heat sink – this could be water for your space heating, domestic hot water, boiler feed water, or outside air heating.
Up to 20% of a facility’s steam is lost through steam trap systems. Our GEM trap technology can help you improve the efficiency. The key features of the venturi orifice GEM trap and service are:
- Typical 10% reduction in fuel costs;
- Ten-year “no fail” performance warranty – no moving parts, which means increased reliability and less maintenance costs
- Typical project payback within 12 – 24 months
Typical applications in the laundry industry:
Ironers, tumble dryers, presses, space heaters, wrapping and sterilization machines and line drainage.
Typical applications in the tire industry and mechanical rubber goods industry:
Autoclaves, evaporators, dryers, CIP systems, heat exchangers.
