IMBERT-GONZALEZ, Josué  and  GUILLEN-GORDIN, Reinaldo. Evaluation of waste heat recovery in frigorific industry. Ingeniería Mecánica [online]. 2014, vol.17, n.1, pp.12-21. ISSN 1815-5944.

The waste heat recovery by heat pipes is accepted as an excellent way of saving energy and preventing global warming. This article assesses the impact of the use of a heat exchanger used as a heat recovery in the refrigeration industry. Elements are evaluated from the point of view of heat transfer, evaluating the quality of heat exchange process. Is calculated increase in the efficiency of the cooling system. The heated water is used in the steam generation system of the industry. Is calculated fuel consumption savings resulting from this warming. The findings provide elements that show the enormous potential of this technique in the refrigeration industry

Keywords : waste heat recovery; Industrial refrigeration; saving energy.
