Waste Heat Boilers

Wellman Robeys range of waste heat products are specifically designed to optimise either steam or hot water ouput at minimum operating cost when using hot gases from incinerators, reciprocating engines, turbines or other waste sources.

Incinerator Gases

A range of waste and process heat boilers are available which provide bespoke solutions for the safe handling of hot gases from incinerators which combine toxins and other particulate matter. The designs provide for maximum flexibility of operation and minimum downtime for cleaning. 

Design & Construction

All waste heat boilers are constructed in accordance with the latest british standards or other international codes of practice where required. 

Thermal designs follow Wellman Robey's conservative parameters ensuring large stored steam spaces, excellent thermal reserve and ease of access to both gas and water slide surfaces, minimising maintenance costs. 

Energy Saving

Waste heat boilers and economisers are purposely designed with low gas side pressure losses, improving overall efficiencies, particularly benefiting CHP turbine energy in / out performances. 

 

Combined Heat & Power - CHP Schemes

Wellman Robey is a major supplier of CHP schemes to a wide range of users in the power, food, paper and gas related industries. It has considerable expertise and is able to take the customer's conceptual ideas and provide a complete bespoke turnkey installation. 

The company can supply turbines, auxillary and supplementary firing equipment, waste heat boiler plant, superheaters, economisers, silencers, mechanical / electrical services and boilerhouse  management systems. 

Gas Turbine Exhaust Gases

A range of waste heat boilers are available which provide bespoke solutions for the safe handling of hot gases from gas turbines. The designs provide for maximum flexibility of operation and minimum downtime for cleaning. 

Design & Construction

All waste heat boilers are constructed in accordance with the latest british standards or other international codes of practice where required. 

Thermal Designs follow Wellman Robey's conservative parameters ensuring large stored steam spaces, excellent thermal reserve and ease of access to both gas and water slide surfaces, minimising maintenance costs. 

Energy Saving

Waste heat boilers and economisers are purposely designed with low gas side pressure losses, improving overall efficiencies, particularly benefiting CHP turbine energy in / energy out performances. 

Supplementary / Auxiliary option ( Oil / Gas )

BS EN ISO 9001 : 2000 

RWTUV AD Merkblatt - HPO / TRD 201 

ASME VIII Div 1 

Boilers are constructed to the latest British Codes and other international standards. 

Boilers comply with the requirements of the European Pressure Equipment Directive ( P.E.D )

After - Care

Fully trained service engineers are available to light up and commision the boiler plant and to provide an extensive after-care maintenance and service scheme with complete spares support, 24 hour call-out facility, a range of steam and hot water hire boilers and comprehensive repairs and conversion services. 

 

 

Flue Gas Economisers

The flue gas discharge from old and new steam boilers contains a considerable heat recovery potential 

The ROBEYLOOS Economiser with high efficiency secondary heat transfer surfaces utilises this heat potential for feed water preheating, and enhances boiler effciency by 5 - 7 percent. 

Flue gas economisers are a type of heat exchanger that enables some of the sensible heat in boiler flue gases to be recovered. This heat is normally used to preheat the boiler’s feedwater. Typically a flue gas economiser will improve boiler net thermal efficiency. 

Wellman Robey's flue gas heat recovery economiser - the ROBEYLOOS Eco System - has been specially designed to utilise the heat recovery potential of flue gas discharge from old and new steam boilers. Featuring high-efficiency secondary heat transfer surfaces, the ROBEYLOOS maximises the heat recovery potential of feedwater preheating and enhances all-round boiler efficiency. 

The ROBEYLOOS can be completely integrated into the rear exhaust box on new boilers. The equipment features helically finned tubes that enable heat recovery on gas- / light oil-fired boilers, thereby removing the need for gas-side bypass. The integrated unit has large inspection doors and is fitted within the outline of the boiler, avoiding separate foundation and secondary support steelwork. The integrated economisers are fitted complete with thermal insulation and interconnecting pipework. 

The ROBEYLOOS Eco System can also be provided for stand-alone applications and retrofitting operations to existing boiler plant. All ROBEYLOOS Eco systems can be supplied as a kit of parts or fully installed by our service team. 

Investments in flue gas economisers from Wellman Robey may qualify for Energy efficiency loans from the Carbon Trust.
