Bowman Introduce New CHP Product
Product News Tuesday, March 15, 2011: Bowman E J (Birmingham) Ltd Bowman Introduce New CHP Product
Improving energy efficiency, by capturing waste heat from engine powered gensets and converting it into usable, free heat and hot water was the primary focus of EJ Bowman exhibiting at NEMEX, part of the Sustainability Live exhibition held at the NEC Birmingham 20-22 April.
Surprisingly, many UK genset manufacturers have yet to capitalise on the opportunities to move their products from power only, to full CHP, with all the environmental and commercial benefits this can bring. By capturing waste heat from exhaust and cooling systems (which would otherwise escape to atmosphere), gensets can provide heating and hot water at no additional cost in terms of fuel usage or emissions to the environment. In fact, Bowman heat exchangers are so efficient they can reclaim up to 60% of all lost heat from the engine and achieve total performance efficiencies of up to 92%!
Throughout the exhibition Bowman engineers were on hand to advise on heat exchanger technology to enable genset producers to reap the benefits of CHP. Bowman were also exhibiting examples from their extensive range of exhaust gas and cooling system heat exchangers, plus oil, fuel and charge air coolers. NEMEX was the launch of a new ‘compact’ exhaust gas heat exchanger that has been developed especially for the fast growing smaller (16 KVA) engine powered genset market.
Though small in size, this fully welded stainless steel unit combines all the features and qualities that have made Bowman market leaders, offering manufacturers of smaller gensets a high performance solution for moving into CHP.
Bowman’s sales manager, Jamie Pratt said “If you take a typical 100KW engine, the power generated is around 35KW. By recovering the waste heat from the exhaust and cooling systems, we can generate another 50KW of heat energy which would otherwise be lost to atmosphere. So, the end user benefits, getting free heat; the environment benefits as no additional fuel is used to create this heat and the genset supplier benefits by being able to offer a premium product in high demand.
EJ Bowman manufacture a comprehensive range of heat exchangers for use in sustainable heating and power generation applications, including solar collection, ground and air source heat pumps, wind turbines and bio-mass fuel boilers.
