How Pillow Plates are used for heat recovery

October 21, 2019

Almost all manufacturing processes require lots of energy, which results in waste heat. One of these processes is in the papermaking industry.

A significant amount of waste heat is generated as a by-product of the papermaking process. Most of this heat cannot be reused directly in the process as it has a high level of humidity and/or contains unwanted gaseous or particulate contamination.

Heat recovery equipment is a key element of energy-efficient mill operations, providing:

  •  Competitiveness through energy savings
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reduction
  • Reduced boiler load

This article of the first issue of Heat Exchanger World Magazine describes how this can be achieved by using Pillow Plates.
