Project summary: Manufacture and install tube shell heat exchanger
To provide a system to raise and maintain a constant biomethane temperature before injection into the grid network.
Biogas Products Ltd installed a tube/shell heat exchanger which used waste heat available on site to heat the biomethane.
To raise the temperature of 1200m3/hr biomethane flow and maintain a constant set temperature at the outlet of the tube/shell heat exchanger.
Design, manufacture and install a tube/shell heat exchanger manufactured in 316SS which used waste heat available on site to heat the biomethane.
Design, manufacture and install a hot water pump skid and heat exchanger that picked up surplus heat on site with an electric immersion heater back up system if required.
The system enabled control of the biomethane temperature before injection into the grid.
