New Exhaust Vapor Condenser can help recover heat energy, reduce emissions
Spirax Sarco, a leading global steam system engineering and management company, has expanded its product line to include the new Exhaust Vapor Condenser.
The EVC utilizes flash steam from discharge and exhaust vent pipework to pre-heat make-up or process water, recovering heat energy that would otherwise be lost, according to a news release from the company. The EVC can help improve system efficiency and reduce emissions for industries including food, beverage and health care, according to the release.
“With a global focus on sustainability and energy efficient-operation, Spirax Sarco is pleased to offer the Exhaust Vapor Condenser, a reliable and innovative heat exchanger that is environmentally friendly and has proven to provide efficient payback within short periods of time, some applications within one year.” Chris Rossi, Spirax Sarco product manager, said in the release.
The EVC, constructed of stainless steel, has no gaskets except for the piping connection and has no painted components, according to the release. The heat-exchanging surface consists of straight corrugated tubes designed for low-viscosity fluids and turbulent-flow working conditions.
