Temperature Insulated Heat Recuperator "IR" achieves
top heat transfer efficiency by exposing a maximum surface area
to the largest possible amount of hot gas. The unit uses a
proprietary counterflow design that produces improved heat
transfer between two airstreams. Surface exposure is increased
by corrugating heat transfer plates to achieve a sinusoidal wave
pattern. The plates are spaced 1/2" apart for maximum air flow
and minimum pressure drop. This design creates air flow
turbulence as the air passes counterflow through the unit,
maximizing heat transfer.
As your process air enters the unit, it is directed over the
corrugated plates in a counterflow direction to the heated air.
Heat from the waste stream is absorbed by the plates and
transferred to the cooler airstream... then exits the unit as
recovered heat you can reuse or recycle. Airstream temperature
can be as high as 1500°F. The unit is equipped with all welded
bellows type internal expansion joints of a high-temperature
alloy. This allows for the expected growth when operating at
high temperatures. Four inches of high-temperature insulation
reduces heat loss through the exterior stainless steel casing.
Get the added effectiveness provided by the 4" of
high-temperature insulation with this recuperator. Designed for
applications up to 1500°F, the insulated recuperator is
constructed from special high-temperature alloys. The all welded
assembly protects from airstream cross contamination. The
insulation between the inner and outer casing of the unit
greatly diminishes heat loss.
Roll-formed metallic internal expansion joints allow for the
thermal expansion that accompanies high-temperature operation.
Optional airflow configurations are available to fit the needs
of your high- temperature thermal incinerators, furnaces and
combustion preheat systems.
Individual plates are continuously welded to form a series of
passages with a minimum 1/2" spacing between plates. Primary
seal welds at each end of the unit separate the two airstreams,
making the unit virtually leak-free. By utilizing different
plate sizes, the heat transfer effectiveness range is 50% to
