Almost all manufacturing processes require large amounts of energy, which results in waste heat. One of these processes is in the pulp and paper industry.
A significant amount of waste heat is generated as a by-product of the paper making 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:
This article of the first issue of Heat Exchanger World Magazine describes how this can be achieved by using Laser Plates.
