Many processes within industrial production lines require heat transfer/energy dissipation 365 days a year. At integratedAIR Systems we understand these systems and their importance in ensuring that production does not stop. Different climates can pose different challenges, with some enabling systems to be more energy efficient than others. These processes may be required in a range of industries – from food and beverage to industrial and chemical, we can design the best system for your needs and requirements.
Whatever the climate, we have a solution. Wherever possible, we will offer heat recovery so that dissipated energy from one process can be used as energy for another process within the production sequence. With years of experience in the industry, you can be reassured that your production line is in capable hands.
Process cooling and heat recovery
Industrial process cooling, by definition, is when a media such as water or water-based lubricant is required for a specific process to keep that process at a set temperature and keep it operating safely and efficiently. Heat is usually removed when the process media is pumped through a heat exchanger.
Cold water on a separate pumping circuit is pumped through the heat exchanger in the opposite direction, with heat transferring from the process to the cool water through a series of thermal conducting plates; this is called conduction. The opposing flows are not mixed. Only the energy is transferred from them.
Removing this heat from the process means the heat must be dissipated elsewhere. Be it straight to the atmosphere via an airblast cooler, chiller or water tower. Or preferably, the energy can be used elsewhere for a process that may require the opposite energy transfer, a process that may need heating. For example, one such process could be the return flow of a boiler. There are many opportunities for reusing energy within the industrial sector, and these opportunities must be considered with the impact on the environment and our energy usage becoming ever more critical.
