|Typical Heat Exchanger Limitations:
- Single point of failure – one tube fracture results in entire unit failure
- Relies on minimizing metal thickness for higher efficiency
- High susceptibility to fouling - very difficult to clean
- Not practical for dirty exhaust streams
- Low efficiencies
- Can't withstand higher temperatures
- Complex engineering structures
- Typically fail through thermal stress cracking
- Very difficult and expensive to repair
- Failure = Immediate downtime and monetary loss
- Cannot be used in highly corrosive environments
As a result, most industrial waste heat remains unrecovered.
