Air Preheat Systems

We specialize in designing and retrofitting process furnaces for optimal efficiency, and our Air Preheat Systems are an important part of that process.

We have designed and installed Air Preheat Systems in a wide variety of both new and in-service heaters to utilize hot flue gas from the combustion process to preheat the incoming combustion air.

Benefits of Air Preheat Systems

As a vital part of our nation's production and economy, heaters and furnaces are major consumers of energy. With energy consumption and crude oil prices on the rise, industry leaders are increasingly looking for ways to improve thermal efficiency and conserve fuel and energy. 

One of the most potent ways to improve efficiency and productivity is to preheat the combustion air going to the burners. Because the air enters the furnace at a higher temperature, less energy must be supplied by the fuel.
