TLV Steam Bulletin


Varannan månad ger SteamTeam Nordic tillsammans med vår samarbetspartner TLV ut ett kortare E-magazine där vi lyfter fram och diskuterar vanliga problem som våra kunder stöter på i sina ång -och kondensatsystem.

I den här utgåvan tar vi en närmare titt på hur man på ett korrekt sätt kan ta vara på så kallad ’waste heat’. Mer information finner ni nedan.

Plants in all industries across the world are looking for new ways to save energy, cut their power bills, and decrease their carbon footprint.

TLV wants to help. Our latest Steam Theory article introduces 8 technologies used in plants to recover and reuse waste heat, and explains in detail how these technologies work.

1. Waste Heat Boilers (WHBs)

Waste heat boiler

Waste heat boilers (WHBs) recover heat generated in furnaces or exothermic chemical reactions at industrial plants, and use that heat to generate low-to-medium pressure steam.

They can also be used to remove the heat from a process fluid that needs to be cooled for transport or storage, and generate steam from that heat.

2. Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSGs)

Heat recovery steam generators

Many industrial plants with cogeneration or combined cycle systems reuse waste heat from gas turbines by feeding it through a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG).

HRSGs use that left-over heat to create superheated steam, which is then fed either to turbines to generate electricity or to process applications.

3. Absorption Chillers

Absorption chillers

Absorption chillers use left-over heat to make water vapor more efficiently.

After steam heats the absorbent in the chiller’s generator to create water vapor, the resultant condensate is passed around the absorbent feeder line, preheating the absorbent so that the water it contains evaporates faster.

New Journal Articles on TLV Website!

Have you noticed that four new steam engineering-related journal articles have been added to the TLV website 2019?

They discuss best practices for designing steam and condensate systems, minimizing risk in steam systems, and preventing common heat tracing problems.

The articles are valuable resources for anyone interested in learning more about steam engineering. Check them out today!
