At Cire Technologies we are very cognizant of our customers’ cost of operating our equipment. One area we excel at is reusing waste heat from our equipment back into the process. A current project illustrates an innovative use of waste heat that will pay for itself in less than one year and provide benefits to the bottom line of the customer for years to come.
Our customer has two solvent based pressure sensitive adhesive coating lines that currently exhaust to a recuperative thermal oxidizer that needs to be replaced. It was the customer’s desire to replace the single oxidizer with two oxidizers, one for each coating line, to provide operating flexibility and redundancy. The system design allows the oxidizers to be used interchangeably to add to the system flexibility.
