Compared with the regenerative type furnaces, the recuperative type features have lower efficiency but higher flexibility. The lower efficiency is a consequence of the technology of the metallic heat recuperator system which is made with special steel that cannot operate with air temperatures above the resistance limits of the steel.
The recuperators can be divided into different kinds in the function of their constructive technology (double shell and tube bundle) and in the function of the range of hot air temperature. Falorni Tech provides a complete range of metallic recuperator with different technologies: double shell for hot air temperature up to 500 – 550 ° or tube bundle for hot air temperature up to 650-750°.
The hot air temperature starts from 500°C of a double shell type up to 700°C of the tube bundle. Combinations of the tube bundle and double-shell type can recover up to a temperature of 850°C.
The main benefits of Metallic Heat Recuperator System are:
- Safe and easy operation
- Low CAPEX
- Available in double-shell or tube bundle type
- Possibility to install in single or double stage
- Easy installation
- Easy withdrawal and maintenance
- Extended lifespan
