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