Industrial dehumidification, combined with heat recovery, leads to less energy consumption and a shorter return on the investment period. As a result, the system as a whole is more cost-effective and attractive to purchase.
Particularly in industrial warehousing and food processing, operators are often confronted with a pressing need to control air humidity between spaces. The colder the climate, the more critical it is to control moisture. Traditional strip curtains and high-speed doors result in energy loss and create significant hurdles to transport.
Combining an industrial dehumidifier with a heat recovery unit is a perfect example of a win-win solution for solving the problems while significantly reducing energy consumption.
Some common challenges are:
By implementing a heat recovery unit, heat from the regeneration process is fed back and reused for the regeneration process of the dehumidifier. The heat transfer takes place without moisture transfer. As a result, heat remains in the regeneration process of the dehumidifier, keeping energy consumption for the dehumidification process to a minimum.
Besides ensuring that as much heat as possible is transferred from the exhaust air to the supply air (>80%), the heat exchanger should provide:
Heatex’s air-to-air heat exchangers have a lightweight construction, slim frames, and an optimized plate pattern that delivers superior efficiency while keeping pressure drop low.
Heatex crossflow models H2 and H are made of aluminum heat transfer plates and Aluzinc end plates.
Additionally, we offer a wide range of configurations and options, such as:
Heatex rotary heat exchangers enable humidity transfer and generally provide higher efficiency than a plate heat exchanger.
Typical options for paint booth applications include:
