There may seem no end to the energy needs of large Health care facilities, which naturally leads to ever-increasing energy bills. Our meeting presentation looks at what one hospital group recently did to cut natural gas consumption and lower its annual operating costs. The project involved eight steam boilers at six Advocate Health Care hospitals. It combined three components designed to recover waste heat from steam boiler systems: flue stack economizers, heat exchangers/controls, and vent condensers at the deaerator tank bleed vents. The economizers were custom-designed for each installation and incorporated all stainless steel construction of tubes and flue gas enclosure to avoid normal corrosion buildup. Payback for the project is projected to be 8.2 years after considering the utility incentives, which are estimated at 17% of the total project construction cost. Learn more about these and other features.

Dan Doyle, President of Grumman/Butkus Associates and a principal project designer, will delve deeper into the design challenges and system components of the innovative project, which recently received an ASHRAE Illinois Chapter Energy Technology Award. He’ll be joined by one or more Advocate representatives who will discuss the project’s application at various hospitals.
