Vapor Phase Waste Heat Recovery Systems are manufactured by Kickham Boiler & Engineering of St. Louis, MO.
One of the most important elements of a combined heat and power installation is the waste heat recovery system. This system must FIRST provide positive engine cooling and SECOND obtain maximum economical heat recovery while insuring reliability and longevity of equipment.
There is a difference in waste heat recovery systems
Vapor Phase units are modeled after traditional fire-tube boilers and offer much longer life and reliability compared to other systems utilizing economizer-style designs. Vapor Phase units can stand up to the vibration and exhaust gas pulsations typical of reciprocating engines for many years of reliable service.
There are several methods of waste heat recovery: jacket water only, exhaust heat only and combined systems that recover both. For a schematic of a typical combined system, click HERE.
