Heat recovery and pollution control in textile finishing. A demonstration at Burlington Fabrics Ltd., Caerphilly (GB)

Miscellaneous:

Abstract

Installation of new air cleaning and heat recovery equipment at Burlington Fabrics Ltd (United Kingdom) showed that energy savings worth approximately 40,873 pounds/year could be achieved whilst greatly improving pollution control. In the textile industry cloth setting and finishing is carried out on stenters which are intensive energy users and exhaust high volumes of obnoxious gases. Filtration can greatly reduce these problems and prove commercially and environmentally attractive when combined with heat recovery. In this project the existing electrostatic plant was replaced with a dry filter system designed to reduce fume emissions to environmentally acceptable levels whilst recovering energy from the exhaust to heat hot water for the dyehouse, which had a high demand for hot water up to 40{sup o}C. Monitoring has shown that the new system saves energy and removes 80-85% of particulate matter in the exhaust. This was essential for Burlingtons since, prior to installation, they had been under a notice of closure from the Environmental Health Officer. This was subsequently lifted. The cost of installing the new system was 120,400 pounds which, with the energy savings of 40,873 pounds/year, gives a simple payback period of three years. The system has been shown to work, effectively and  More>>
