Recycling is one of the few things that are able to save planet Earth, and as each year goes by and things such as global warming tend to get more and more attention, a lot of people start looking into recycling. Today we’re discussing about a recycling method that is not really popular yet, but we guarantee that as more and more people hear about it, it will soon become one of the most frequently used methods.
If you want to learn more about how heat recovery systems work, feel free to read until the end. Without any further ado, here’s everything that you need to know about this topic.
What is a heat recovery system?
Before explaining how it works, it is important to know what it is and why you should be using it. When we use any kind of machines that produce heat and hot air, we usually let it go into waste afterwards, which is both harming our environment and, well, a waste. Instead, that hot air we produced with our machine can be recycled and used in order to make something useful instead letting it go to waste.
There are many sources of waste heat that we’re unaware of, and here are some of the most popular and common ones:
Boilers, engines, furnaces and heaters. All of these can be found in our houses.
Ovens and dryers produce heat waste as well, and in a lot of quantity.
AC’s and other climate control devices which are extremely popular, especially during summer. These are only some of the examples, and there are many more but we wanted to point out the ones that are most common among regular people. In the industry though, there are huge machines that produce large amounts of heat, and it goes to waste most of the times.
Professional companies tend to make custom heat recovery systems for your own needs, so no matter if you own a bakery or you work with hot glue in a workshop, they will be able to make one that suits your needs accordingly. Feel free to read more here if you are interested.
How does it work?
The exodraft system works by converting all of the excess steam and heat into a reliable hot water supply through a bio-chemical process. So, instead of letting it go to waste, you will be able to use that hot water for many different causes in your home.
Here are some of the ways you can use your hot water supply:
Using it as hot water for all kinds of cleaning purposes
Powering a bathing facility, allowing it to have hot water all the time. Heating a certain office, room or an entire building.
Selling your supplies to the heating district
No matter what you decide to do with it, it is very important to note that your ROI (Return on Investment) period will be real short, and according to experts, it will be less than two years. After that, you’re in pure profit from recycling all that waste heat into something extremely useful. So, by having an oven in a bakery, you will be able to have hot water and heating at the same time. You get three things for the cost of one, while also saving the environment and being eco-friendly.
