FURTHER TOGETHER... IN HVAC APPLICATIONS
Energy consumption has increased steadily in recent decades, but the world’s energy reserves are not unlimited. Recovery and energy efficiency are therefore increasingly at the heart of the design of mechanical systems for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) or for industrial processes.
Energy recovery is often one of the most effective ways to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Energy can easily be recovered by installing heat exchangers at strategic points :
- Exchanger on exhaust air in winter to recover its heat and transfer it to the fresh air entering via a heat exchanger.
- Exchanger on gray water drain where heat from waste water is transferred to another water circuit through a heat exchanger.
- Exchanger on combustion flue gases whose heat is transferred to a pressurized water system or thermal oil to heat boiler combustion air.
- Exchanger on any other process where thermal energy is released into the atmosphere or into natural body of water (rivers, lakes, wells, etc.).
Thermofin offers a wide range of products and heat exchangers specifically designed for heat recovery and energy efficiency
MANY THERMOFIN HEAT EXCHANGERS ARE INSTALLED FOR
Commercial swimming pool & SPA
Heating commercial swimming pool or SPA. Depending on water chemistry (salty or chlorinated), the plate material will be chosen accordingly.
Heating or cooling substations in commercial or institutional buildings such hospitals or condominium towers.
Fish farming ponds
Thermofin PHE are installed for fish pond cooling.
Maple Syrup production
Thermofin plate and frame HX are used for cooling maple sap or recovering energy in steam in order to preheat maple sap.
Thermofin PHE are installed to cool down beer wort.
Heat exchangers are installed to recover energy on exhaust fumes. The recovered energy can be used to increase burner air intake temperature to avoid acid condensation in fumes during winter.
Domestic water heater
Thermofin PHE are used for domestic water heating
