Heat recovery in industry plays a significant role in the overall energy saving measures. More complex processes with numerous heat sources, heat sinks and different temperature levels require suitable analysing methods in order to achieve an optimal use of resources. Our Pinch-analysis commences with this exact point and enables you to minimise energy input in heating and cooling processes. To do so we identify the minimal required heating and cooling performance as well as the so-called “Pinch-Point”. On the Basis of this we design an optimised heating exchange system.
