Abstract Thermal efficiency of the radiant tube combustion system is improved by utilizing advanced recuperative equipments. These equipments are self recuperative single ended radiant tube and plug-in type recuperators. In order to increase their applicabilities, advanced ceramic materials are being used to manufacture the critical components exposed to higher flue gas temperature i.e. 2000 degrees F. + or 1079 degrees C. Preliminary design methods to manufacture these equipments indicate that ceramic recuperators can compete against conventional single ended and plug-in recuperators. Preliminary test results indicate that a higher preheat temperature from the ceramic recuperator is possible when the plug-in design is used.
