The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
Heatec economizers recover heat from exhaust gases of the heater. This is heat that would otherwise be lost into the atmosphere. The recovered heat is used to preheat thermal fluid or process fluid entering the heater. Another variation of the economizer preheats combustion air for the heater’s burner. Both types of economizers reduce the amount of fuel required for the heating process. The economizer mounts in the exhaust stack and is offered as an option. It can also be retrofitted to existing heaters.
