Epcon’s unique patented heat recovery systems and our commitment to innovation keep us on the cutting edge of technology. Epcon is one of the few companies to have its own state-of-the-art heat exchanger manufacturing facility on site. Our 250,000 square foot manufacturing operations shop includes an array of fabrication equipment including lathes, drilling machines, presses and state-of-the-art Computer Controlled Milling Machines.
Our Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers are designed to transfer heat efficiently and effectively while reducing fuel consumption. A Heat Exchanger can be combined with any of our other systems or as a retrofit. In addition, Epcon has several designs that combine burnerless ovens with Thermal Oxidizers to create a completely integrated Combination Oven/Oxidizer System.
The price of the fuel necessary to run fired equipment (Ovens, Oxidizers, etc) can be exorbitant. In order to lower operating costs, a heat exchanger can be used. Heat Exchangers are used for transferring heat from one fluid (such as air) at higher temperature to another fluid at a lower temperature, thus making use of heat which would otherwise be wasted. In the various systems manufactured at Epcon, heat exchangers are used for the following purposes:
