 Cain Industries – Waste Heat Recovery/Economizers

Cain__Industries_CanadaSince 1978, Cain Industries has dedicated itself to the exclusive production of combustion exhaust heat transfer products. Successful experience, lowering fuel costs and reducing pollution, makes Cain the first choice for both the retrofit and OEM client.


Cain Industries sets itself apart from the competition by producing products to serve the broad spectrum of the combustion retrofit markets:

– Gas and Diesel Cogeneration
– Boiler Exhaust
– Fume Incineration

The knowledge we gain from each market, helps the continuing improvement of the others. As the only manufacturer capturing these three markets, Cain has developed the greatest selection of products to precisely fit within their particular system applications. Coupled with heat transfer programs and CAD engineered designs, they have developed 15 product lines with over 2,350 pre-designed industrial heat transfer models.

Cain is also especially dedicated to a primary investment in our associates with their manufacturing technology, quality improvements, and innovative cost reductions. As a result, our customers can expect competitively priced products aimed at having the greatest return on investment, along with the longest lasting equipment.

Permapipe’s New Energy Saving Green Pipe – Xtru-Therm Plus


The greenest system available for distribution of hot & chilled water.  Permapipe’s new aluminum diffusion barrier eliminates the degradation of the initial K factor in the Polyurethane foam insulation by eliminating the diffusion of air into the foam which typically replaces the blowing agent and raises the K value, effectively increasing the heat loss.



The metallic barrier prevents the diffusion of the blowing agent and results in an improved long term thermal efficiency of over 30%.  Perma-Pipe’s spray process for applying polyurethane foam results in the most uniform cell structure and therefore the lowest possible insulating value (K). The blowing agent is an HFC which has ZERO ozone depleting chemicals.  Green foam with the lowest K value results in the lowest heat loss and the most energy efficient piping system.

REHAU_Canadarehau_PexRemote energy centers, often using renewable energy sources such as geothermal, biomass or combined heat and power, are increasingly employed in multi-building projects. These facilities offer efficient heating and cooling solutions, but are usually located outside of the buildings where the energy is needed. As a result, ensuring minimal temperature change between the energy center and the buildings is an important design consideration.

REHAU pre-insulated PEX piping is specially designed for the efficient transfer of hot or chilled fluid through buried pipelines. Comprising PEXa pipes surrounded by insulation and a protective outer jacket, this high-performance piping system allows you to take advantage of the energy efficiency of a remote energy center while minimizing energy loss in the piping process.

REHAU pre-insulated PEX piping is ideal for distribution in local community heating and cooling applications, industrial and agricultural geothermal applications, snow and ice melting applications as well as in process and hydronic piping systems.

munters des champsMunters’ Thermo-Z Aids Heat Recovery

Munters_ThermoZDesigned for processes up to 1,400°F (760°C), Thermo-Z recovers energy that can be used for process makeup air, plant or office heating, or preheated combustion air. The heat exchanger is fully welded and has variable plate spacing on the heat exchanger supply and exhaust. The unit provides various flow patterns and zero cross contamination. The internal casing is secured to a cold outer casing by means of integral thermal expansion joints. The joints allow the heat exchanger to be installed flange-to-flange to the ductwork without compensating for thermal expansion of the heat exchanger.

Niagara_BlowerNiagara Blower Water Use Reduction and Energy Savings

Niagara_WSACNiagara Blower’s WSAC uses significantly less parasitic energy than a conventional cooling tower and heat exchanger combination. Field experience has shown that typical fan horsepower is reduced by 10-25%. Typical pump horsepower is also reduced from 10-40%.

The WSAC For more information:units are able to use a lower quality water allowing higher cycles of concentration in the cooling process. This allows for the makeup water requirements to be reduced, saving on total water consumption. In some applications we can also use waste water from another process as our makeup water to essentially allow the WSAC system to consume no new additional water.

The importance of an integral steam system relies on a complete system including a condensate return system.

  • Explosion Proof
  • Non-Electric
  • Pressure Motive
  • Condensate Return Systems

customizedskidpackagesThe Watson McDaniel PMP Series of Pressure Motive Pumps are designed to transfer hot condensate (or other liquids) without the use of electrical power.  The mechanical seals in standard electric condensate return pumps begin to have difficulty when handling condensate in excess of 195° F. Seal failure is virtually guaranteed when condensate temperatures reach 203° F due to flashing of the condensate across the seal face. It is therefore required to cool condensate in order to prevent seal failure prior to pumping using electric pumps. PMPs do not have seals and therefore will handle condensate well in excess of these temperatures.
