Engineering - Waste Heat Recovery
The client, a large engineering and castings company was looking at how they could reduce their high energy bills through heat capture from two 9t, and two 4t cupola induction furnaces.
The investigation was conducted at high level providing a snapshot into the potential for heat capture. However, the challenge wasn’t in the heat recovery process, it was in its application. Catalyst needed to understand how efficient the current casting process was to help provide an accurate baseline and required data on fuel to air ratios, burner temperatures, pressure details as well as an understanding of furnace losses including.
