Flue gas condensation

03. December 2016

Today renewables & fossil fuels need to be used as efficiently as possible. Various solutions already exist to maximize boiler efficiency and flue gas condensation is another option worth considering.

Flue gas condensation is widely used in residential heating systems but the technology had no real breakthrough in industrial applications yet. However, the potential is considerable, e.g. 3% higher net electric output in a cogeneration plant.

Due to the low temperature differences and the requirement for corrosion resistance materials ERK Tube technology is ideally suited to minimise cost by reducing heating surfaces up to 30%. ERK has realised flue gas condensers with its licensees Berkesand Remming and we are looking forward to further references in this area.
