Effective utilisation of waste heat by the use of recuperators system has become more and more imperative due to the recent energy crisis. Although both the recuperator and regenerator are used to preheat air, the co•efficient of heat transfer is higher in the recup-erators than that of regenerators (2,5-6.0 as compared to 1.5- 3.5 Btuift2/hr/°F.)1. A recuperator Is a device whereby heat is continuously transferred from hot waste gases to combustion air and thus preheating it. In many modern soaking pits, batch or continuous type reheating furnaces, ceramic recuperators are used for achieving very high preheat temperature. The efficiency of the ceramic recuperative system depends upon the quality of the refra-ctory tube and the mortars used for jointing material.
