Eco-Oil Ipswich plant achieves significant energy savings 01 April 2011

UK industrial waste oil recycler Eco-Oil's Ipswich plant is reporting good energy savings from its high-efficiency thermal fluid heating system, from Babcock Wanson.

Engineering director Allan Goulden explains that the plant installed a TPC1000B coil type, multi-pass heater with integrated burner, control system and safety devices, to generate heat for its processed fuel oil production.

The unit also has a dual fuel burner facility, running on gas oil but with the option to switch to its own recycled processed fuel oil.

"Reducing energy costs was at the heart of our decision and we knew we could make considerable savings by moving from steam to thermal fluid as the heat source for our process," states Goulden.

"We investigated the options thoroughly and decided Babcock Wanson offered the best solution. To date we have been proven right: the system has reduced our energy costs and is easy to use, with very good control."

In fact, the TPC1000B is sold on the basis of achieving 20—50% energy savings compared to traditional steam boilers. The system precisely matches fuel input to plant energy requirements, so reducing fuel and cutting exhaust emissions.
