Several all-ceramic tube-in-shell recuperators of a unique design are in successful operation in various industrial furnaces firing up to 11.6 MW/h (40MBtu/h). High temperatures and corrosive and fouling flue gases have not been a problem. Fuel savings and other benefits have resulted in typical 1-y payback and a more competitive position for users.
