Geldermalsen, Netherlands

Many industries are losing energy via hot corrosive flue gas or process air through their stacks. HeatMatrix has developed a unique polymer heat exchanger which is corrosion resistant and therefor can recover this heat.

Opportunity: In many industries flue gases as well as air from production processes contain corrosive and fouling components. These streams still contain a lot of heat that is not being recovered. Problem: If the heat is recovered from corrosive flue gas or off gas, the acidic elements will condensate into very corrosive acids. Conventional metal heat exchangers are not able to withstand these harsh circumstances. Solution: Heat matrix has developed a heat exchanger that is made of a polymer and hence can deal with this acidic environment. So with the polymer heat exchanger of HeatMatrix the energy from these acidic flue gases can be recovered and be used to preheat combustion air or process air. This results in 5% -15% energy saving and an attractive business case.
