Transport Membrane Condenser Key to Advanced Heat-Recovery System

June 2010
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Jun2010, Vol. 82 Issue 6, p41
The article focuses on the use of Transport Membrane Condenser (TMC) technology in the upgrade of a bioscience facility to achieve energy conservation for the production of medical products and services. It says that the TMC was integrated in the steam economizer that has advanced heating recovery system from Gas Technology Institute (GTI). It mentions that TMC helps increase fuel-to-steam energy efficiency and can also lower the amount of greenhouse gases emission every year.
