The Spirax Sarco Flash Recovery Energy Management Equipment (FREME) engineered system is said to achieve energy savings of up to 26 per cent.

It can be used across the majority of industries, including brewing and distilling, food and beverage, hospitals and healthcare and oil and petrochemical.

FREME creates a completely sealed steam system and transfers the heat from the flash steam and recovered condensate into the high-pressure side of the boiler feed pumps.

Temperatures in the feedtank can therefore exceed 100C without causing pump cavitation, ensuring that virtually all returned energy is used by the system.

Heat and water previously discarded can now be recycled, reducing energy and water treatment costs and CO2 emissions.

FREME works by first separating the flash steam from the condensate.

The separate flash steam and condensate each travel through a dedicated plate heat exchanger to heat the pressurised feed water before it enters the boiler.

The two returning streams are then recombined.

Recovering condensate from industrial steam systems is said to be an energy-saving practice.

Energy from condensate is used to preheat boiler feed water, which raises boiler efficiency and lowers emissions.

Each 6C rise in feed water temperature typically knocks one per cent off a boiler’s energy consumption.

Spirax Sarco benefits built on knowledge. Spirax Sarco has all the products, services and expertise needed to make the best investments in building and maintaining a steam or industrial fluid plant.
