Just Completed: Heat Recovery Skid Installation for Cedars Mediterranean Foods
The first Heat Exchanger captures the low grade heat from the MD Air Dryers and the second Heat Exchanger captures the high grade heat from the Air compressor circuit. An additional heat exchanger was added to preheat water for the CIP process. Based on a cost of $1.00/therm, the total cost savings is more than $30,000 per year.
