Nowadays, with fuel costs constantly increasing, Nutec Bickley is seriously committed to working with our customers to improve kiln production rates and efficiencies, by minimizing fuel usage and providing the latest proven technology in heat recovery systems.

According to the kiln application, Nutec Bickley’s engineers review process parameters and available area to carefully design and size the required combustion equipment, controls, heat exchanger type and size, and exhaust systems for a complete solution in order to obtain the optimum kiln operating efficiency.

Our heat recovery systems can include the following options:

  • Preheated combustion air up to 425°C (800°F) by integrating a heat exchanger in the exhaust flue
  • Self-recuperative burners with preheated combustion air up to 700°C (1,290°F)
  • Use of regenerative burners to preheat combustion air up to 950°C (1,740°F)
  • Recuperative thermal oxidizer designs
  • Systems to capture and effectively redirect kiln/furnace waste heat to be used in other factory processes
