A Georgia based carpet manufacturer was looking at technologies to lower overall natural gas consumption and increase boiler efficiency. MaxiMizer Systems Dual Stage Boiler Stack Economizer Systems were installed turn-key at five facilities throughout the south east over a period of 18 months. Waste stack energy normally lost to atmosphere is now being utilized to pre-heat boiler feed and process water at all of these facilities. During the preliminary design stage this customer chose to include our BTU metering system to monitor recovered energy value, all five plants report a simple project return on investment of less than one year.
The manufacturer reports that “These systems continue to provide a practical cost effective method of reducing energy consumption; I would recommend Resource Recovery Company and this system to anyone operating boilers”.
With energy reduction being the primary focus a soft drink manufacturer in Alabama was looking to replace old hot water heating technology without having to adopt the inherent inefficiencies of boilers and steam. With up front capital cost a major concern The MaxiMizer Hot Water Heater soon became the obvious choice to replace the old ribbon type burner solution heaters for their can and bottle warmers. Over a period of three years all ten existing units were replaced with five MaxiMizer hot water heaters with more than satisfactory results. This facility continues to realize a 30% to 40% reduction in hot water heating costs while avoiding the constant maintenance issues associated with other available technologies. The facility production manager maintains “This is the best capital money we have spent in my thirty plus years with the company”.
Hot water is always a constant requirement at meat processing facilities for sanitation and process purposes. Due to increased production this Tennessee meat processing facility was having difficulty providing enough hot water during the sanitation period when demand is at its peak. The existing boilers were already at full capacity so the addition of a new four pass wet back boiler seemed to be the only option. The scope of this project required significant investment due to the facility real estate constraints and the requirement of an additional building to house the boiler and ancillary components. Upon consulting MaxiMizer Systems we were able to solve this problem with the addition of a 7.5 million BTUH MaxiMizer hot water heater to augment the existing hot water system.
Due to the small footprint associated with this unit we were also able to avoid the extra expense associated with the construction of a new boiler house. This facility now generates all its sanitation hot water needs with the MaxiMizer unit realizing an average 35% reduction in hot water heating costs. The VP of Engineering stated “Due to the addition of the MaxiMizer unit we are able to save energy dollars and have avoided a significant capital expense, this hot water heater has paid for itself time and time again & provides all the hot water we need”.
