Exergy balance as an analytic tool for the selection of heat recovering systems of a bagasse boiler

Exergy balance as an analytic tool for the selection of heat recovering systems of a bagasse boiler

Revista Industrial y Agricola de Tucuman 73(1/2): 13-19

In bagasse boilers used at sugar factories in Tucuman (Argentina), energy contained in stack gases is recovered by means of air heating or bagasse drying. Using exergy analysis, the useful work of such boilers was determined. This analysis showed that the useful work or exergy recovery was greater with bagasse drying than with traditional air heating. Exergy losses are lower for a boiler with bagasse drying, its exergetic efficiency being 18.75% above that of a boiler with an air preheater.
