Remarkable energy recovery
Fläkt Woods has launched a wholly new type of energy recovery system, the TE3 Energy Recovery Wheels.
Promising unheralded reliability, low maintenance and minimal operating costs, together with long life expectancy, the wheels feature EXCLU-SIEVE technology, which recovers both sensible (temperature) and latent (moisture) energy, doing so far more effectively than any other product.
Its ability to recover latent energy is one of the major benefits of this new technology. It will do this in both the cooling and the heating season. During the cooling season, the outdoor air is dehumidified and pre-cooled.
This significantly reduces the cooling requirements of the conditioned space. In the heating season, the process reverses and the outdoor air is humidified and preheated. This reduces the costly humidification of ventilation air as well as the heating requirements of the indoor space.
Latent recovery can double the energy savings potential recognised with the use of the sensible-only technology. It reduces requirements in both chiller and boiler capacities. System designs incorporating total energy recovery are first cost equivalent to conventional designs when achieving the same ventilation requirements and supply air conditions.
