Steam generators are widely used in industries for several purposes like power production, processing, heating etc. In industry steam generators are the major fuel consumers. In a normal steam generator about 4% of hot wat er is wasted as blow down. Due to this, a large amount of heat energy is wasted. This project aims to bring a heat recovery system to prevent heat losses, so that a large savings can be made. So in this a heat recovery system was designed to minimize the losses.
