InviroTech Straight Heat Pipes
for Exhaust Recovery & Energy Recovery
For a fresh & healthy indoor atmosphere, buildings need to be provided with outdoor air that is fresh. For this, many buildings have dedicated exhaust air systems installed to remove the unwanted stale, foul, or contaminated air.
Furthermore, the intake of outdoor air causes a significant increase in the operating cost of air conditioning systems. Straight Heat Pipes are an excellent method to reduce such costs.
Straight Heat Pipes can be installed either in ductwork or as a part of Air Handlers. These Heat Pipes usually have separate air streams passing through the two sections (evaporator and condenser).
A typical installation would be of cooling (or heat) recovery from outgoing exhaust air from a building and putting that cooling (or heat) onto fresh air which is meant for replacement of exhaust.
Typically operating with recovery efficiency in the 60-80% range, the Straight Heat Pipes provide excellent energy savings, be it for air conditioning applications or industrial exhaust recovery. Unlike equipment having rotating heat exchangers, Straight Heat Pipes are static in operations and do not have parts like rubber seals & media, therefore, they completely eliminate the slightest risk of contamination of fresh air.
Benefits of InviroTech Straight Heat Pipes
- ‘Zero’ risk of cross-contamination (exhaust air & fresh air streams are physically partitioned)
- No moving/ rotating parts
- No maintenance expenditure on parts like drive motor/ belts and seals.
- Denote require realignment and break down maintenance
- Indefinite life of the equipment
- Excellent energy recovery – good payback justification for investment.
