This is a hot water economizer and is a big preheater for domestic hot water use. This boiler plant serves a large community for heating and domestic hot water use. Domestic hot water is used for showers, washing dishes, laundry, ect, ect, ect…. The cold water supply from the city is routed through the economizer to be pre-heated before it goes through a heat exchanger and then the hot water storage tank. This system saves money because it uses the exhaust gases from the boiler to pre-heat the city water supply which is normally 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The exhaust gases from the boiler would otherwise be vented to the atmosphere and would be considered wasted heat.

In the front is a commercial heat exchanger. Behind the commercial heat exchanger is a domestic hot water storage tank.

The supply water from the city is directed through the heat exchanger where it is heated to a set point temperature. This is usually 120 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit. 180 degree water from the boilers run through tubes inside the heat exchanger while the cold water runs through the inside of the heat exchanger in separate channels outside the tubes where the hot boiler water is. The water is heated and then delivered to the community where it used for showers and washing dishes and other hot water uses.
