Energy Recovery Heat Exchangers from Heat and Control, Inc. recover heat from ovens to preheat cooking oil before it enters chip fryers. The heat exchangers reduced natural gas usage by about 20% at one snack manufacturer, saving nearly 20,000 million BTUs per year, according to the company. In addition to fuel savings, carbon dioxide emissions were reduced by more than 2.2 million lb per year.
