Waste Heat Recovery – How It Works
In the early 90’s, the Billi Research and Development Team took waste heat recovery to a new level. Using heat-exchange technology and applying it to a conventional technology water boiler, the Billi team came up with a new and significant, far reaching idea. In consequence, the product they designed became the world’s first under-counter boiling and chilled drinking water system. This instantly provided perfect temperature drinking water, cup after cup after cup.
Furthermore, they harnessed thermodynamic heat-exchange technology to recover waste heat energy. By harvesting the waste heat generated by the chilled water cooling cycle, they reused it to pre heat the water entering the hot water tank. This design provided a massive CO2 energy saving compared to conventional boiling and chilled units. Billi still leads the market for commercial boiling taps today by using this technology.
