Home / Case Study / Condensate Recovery System Optimisation for Efficient Hot Water Generation

Customer Details

A fast growing manufacturer of medical gloves in Malaysia.
Problems
Open-loop condensate recovery system with visible flash steam vented to atmosphere causing energy loss and heating the environment.
Objective

Optimisation of condensate recovery for the hot water system.
Solution

Installation of closed-loop condensate and flash steam recovery system from Forbes Marshall with :

FLASHJET PumpTM for 100% flash steam and condensate recovery.

HeatMax instantaneous hot water generation system for effective steam to water heat transfer.
Benefits
Fresh water at inlet preheated to 45 deg C before introduction into the hot water tank; heat gain of 20 deg C for 10m3 of water.

Complete recovery of flash steam and condensate.

Approximately 400 kg / hr flash steam reutilised; motive steam consumption reduced.

Steam savings of 0.4 tonne / hour in the glove line.

0.4m3 / hr fresh water saved.

Energy-saving of USD 36,008 per annum.
