Convection recuperators (also referred to as "flue" or "canal" recuperators) are tubular heat exchangers that utilize convection heat transfer to preheat combustion air or gas for the purpose of saving fuel. By recovering heat from the hot waste gas exiting a furnace and transferring it to the combustion air feeding the burners, fuel usage can be reduced by an average of twenty-five percent (25%), and in many cases, greater savings are realized.
Products & Technology
Thermal Transfer Corporation supplies custom designed gas-to-gas and gas-to-liquid heat exchangers to accommodate a broad spectrum of temperature and pressure conditions. Our extensive experience in the design of bare and finned tube, tube-and-shell and continuous coil heat exchangers assures product quality and performance, even in the most stringent heat transfer applications.
Thermal Transfer Corporation gas coolers find the widest application in the area of environmental control, where hot dirty emissions from industrial processes must be cooled for entry into pollution control equipment. Most of our coolers employ ambient air as the cooling medium, although water-cooled units are furnished as well.
For over forty years, Thermal Transfer Corporation has supplied fired heaters for a wide range of industrial applications. Each is custom-made for the specific conditions involved, taking into account process and material temperatures, flow distributions, corrosion potential, plant space constraints and, of course, the degree of efficiency and reliability needed for optimal economic and safe service.
