Abstract

In an Industrial process the heat that is not used effectively and lost as waste.This is considered as waste heat energy and dumped into the environment. Reusing the waste heat can be done by various recovery techniques, one such system is the Air Pre-Heating system (APH) [1].This could be used as a valuable energy source and thereby reduce the overall energy consumption. An improvised approach for recycling waste heat energy is presented here. In this paper, a performance comparison was made using various heat elements for the rotor regenerator in Heavy Industry. The results reveal that the rectangular vortex generator is the best option for heat recovery in an APH system.
