Combined Heat and Power or Cogeneration

applications_CHP image

The United States Environmental Protection Agency defines combined heat and power (CHP) or cogeneration as the “simultaneous production of electricity and heat from a single fuel source, such as: natural gas, biomass, biogas, coal, waste heat, or oil.”

Our versatile heat exchangers allow you to create cogeneration solutions by turning waste heat into valuable “free” energy. By recovering waste heat from the jacket water and exhaust gases, it’s easy to convert a reciprocating engine-based genset into a high efficiency CHP solution.

 

Advantages of CHP Solutions
  • Free heating and hot water – no additional fuel required or CO2 generated
  • Up to 60% recovery of the engines waste heat energy
  • Suitable for use with both conventional or alternative fuels
  • Extremely compact units – very easy to install
  • Fully welded stainless steel construction on all exhaust gas units – maximum reliability and durability
  • Units available in stock for delivery

 

CHP Applications
  • Waste heat to energy
  • Engine manufacturing
  • Genset integrators
  • District energy systems
  • Waste water treatment
