Abstract

The project statement is to optimize the heat transfer in a compact heat recovery unit (Heat Recovery and Emission Control Equipment - HREC) using CFD with application in day to day life. In general, the outgoing exhaust gasses are released to atmosphere at over temperature of the dew point of water vapor in waste gases. Recovering a portion of the waste heat enhances the efficiency of the equipment and as well reduce the emissions providing energy savings and green environment. In this study, the potential of recovering waste heat emitted by any heat generation units in common day to day life and in industry is considered. The Heat Recovery and Emission Control Equipment (HREC) acts an intermediate unit at the exit of hot gas generation unit & feed water heating unit. As a result of the calculation, it was determined that recovery of the waste heat can be employed at many applications as like as a combustion air preheater by means of a recuperator.
