TECHNOLOGY

Leading the industry in advanced clean-tech mechanical designs.

A proprietary arrangement of specialized heat exchangers, pumps, valves, dampers, controls and draft inducer help reclaim the waste heat energy generated by hot water heating boilers. Ambient air temperatures combined with incoming domestic water help fully condense and convert 100% of the available energy.

Objective

Design innovation to increase the efficiency of hot water heating boilers by reclaiming wasted thermal energy.

Key results

Carbons Cap developed a proprietary Flue Gas Recovery (FGR) system including a condensing economizer that provides two times the heat transfer over others. This resulted in greater boiler efficiency, less natural gas consumption and lower carbon emissions.

System Features

1

Reclaims thermal energy normally lost by heating boilers.

2

Easily retrofitted on hot water heating boilers.

3

Tri-conservation system saves natural gas, electricity and water.

4

Remote dashboard displays collected and realtime conservation information.

5

Supports LEEDS and other green building certifications.

6

Qualifies for natural gas and electric savings incentives where available.

7

Can pre-heat or pre-cool make up air ventilation and air conditioning systems.

Economic Advantages

8

Increases buildings asset valuation.

9

Rapid payback (usually under 24 months, before incentives).

10

Offsets carbon tax.

Technical

11

Prolongs life of boilers (boilers reach set point sooner).

12

Preheats incoming cold water and boosts temperature of boiler returns.

13

Redirects waste heat from boilers to condensing economizer system.

14

Provides greater redundancy by operating independently of existing boilers.

15

Thermal energy is captured outside the boilers normal exhaust stream.

16

System creates no back pressure on venting system.

Also

17

Installed by any licensed mechanical trade company with Carbon Cap certified training.

18

All components easily transported through standard doorways.

19

Will conform to all necessary regulatory approvals.
