Heat exchangers for genset and cogeneration

Energy savings and product quality in genset and cogeneration


The genset and cogeneration industries play essential roles in meeting diverse energy needs, providing reliable power generation, energy efficiency, and resilience solutions for a wide range of applications. Heat exchangers help optimize energy utilization, enhance system efficiency, and reduce environmental impact by capturing and utilizing waste heat for beneficial purposes.

Leveraging the full potential of energy-efficient cogeneration, also known as combined heat and power (CHP), represents a highly effective and efficient approach to power generation, enabling enhanced energy utilization. Tranter has long expertise designing heat exchangers for these applications.

Genset and Cogeneration

Applications in the genset and cogeneration industry


In gensets powered by internal combustion engines, such as diesel or gas engines, heat exchangers are used to cool the engine coolant. This prevents the engine from overheating during operation, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.


Cogeneration diesel engines, or diesel-fired cogeneration systems, generate electricity and thermal energy from diesel fuel. They use internal combustion engines to power generators and capture waste heat for heating, cooling, or other thermal uses. Tranter’s plate and frame heat exchangers provide precise temperature control in heating and cooling duties of the fluids in the process, ensuring safe and reliable operation of the diesel engines and the cogeneration system.

Heat recovery

The higher the temperature of the waste heat, the more applications it can be used for. Low temperature waste heat can also be recovered and be used to for example space heating, green houses and fish farms where plate heat exchangers play an essential part as heat recovery heat exchangers.
