Power has become an essential commodity all over world today, with rapid development in infrastructure and other aspects, Power has become the most sought out commodity. Globally conventional fuels are going to be exhausted. World wide all resource & development organizations are focusing on non-conventional energy & effective utilization of conventional energies. In sponge iron plant, rotary kiln is used to manufacture iron billets from combustion of coal and iron ore. Waste flue gas emitted from the rotary kiln has a temperature of 700°C and above. Gas cooler is required to cool the gas to the acceptable level. Our project is focused on installation of a WHRSG instead of gas cooler for both gas cooling by heat recovery & steam generation. Thus the whole plant efficiency is improved by effective utilization of waste heat energy and eliminating the power which is consumed by gas cooler.
