Hiram Maxim pioneered the new field of energy recovery in 1925 with the
development of the first heat recovery silencer. Maxim Silencers, Inc.
now offers a broad spectrum of engineering and manufacturing
capabilities and application experience. No other manufacturer of heat
recovery and silencing equipment matches our experience.
Most of the energy generated by burning fuel in internal combustion
engines, both reciprocating and gas turbine, is rejected in the form of
heat. For example, a reciprocating engine at full load converts about
one-third of the available energy into useful work. The remaining
two-thirds are lost in the form of heat to the jacket water, exhaust
gas, oil cooler and by radiation to the surroundings. In an
installation where this heat can be put to useful purposes, heat
recovery can yield attractive savings. Maxim Silencers, Inc.
manufactures heat recovery units in a number of models and sizes for a
wide range of applications.
|MFT ||Heat Recovery silencer for reciprocating engines. Especially suited for smaller, high speed engines.|
|MBT ||Heat recovery silencer for larger reciprocating engines. Modifications allow spark arresting and a high degree of silencing.|
|HSS ||Steam separator for use in combination with other heat input equipment.|
jacket type heat recovery silencer for hot water service. Extremely
rugged design for mid-size and larger engines where unusually long
service life is desirable.|
annular jacket (tubeless) heat recovery unit and chamber-type silencer
for steam service. Extremely rugged design for mid-size and larger
engines where unusually long service life is desirable. Used primarily
on the exhaust of a reciprocating engine.|
|GTW ||Water tube heat recovery unit used primarily on the exhaust of a gas turbine.|
recovery unit for medium to high volume gas flows at low pressure drop.
Specially designed to heat fluids to higher temperature levels.|
