Abstract

In this paper we provide an analysis of the recovery options for domestic electric storage water heaters (DESWH), which are one of the most common devices used to heat water in households of many countries around the world. The analysis considers the characteristics of the product and the condition of its components regarding the functional and safety requirements in order to obtain a remanufactured DESWH that looks as good as new. An inspection guide for determining the adequate recovery option of a used DESWH is provided, with the flow and the detailed description of the operations needed. In addition, we suggest certain recommendations in the design of a DESWH in order to improve its remanufacturing process. The economic benefit related to the DESWHs recovery is illustrated by means of an analysis of the solution obtained from a hybrid production-remanufacturing system that includes the inspection of DESWHs with heterogenous quality and capacity constraints.
