Due to the limited space and risk of corrosion, air handling units on seagoing ships must be equipped with compact, high-quality heat exchangers to provide fresh, pleasant air without interruptions for long periods.
Marie environments put a tremendous strain on most materials due to the high salt levels in the air. Air handling units on, e.g., cruise ships often require products that combine corrosion resistance, high performance, and a compact design.
Today, rotary heat exchangers have become an established air-to-air heat exchanger for heat recovery on many ships. By selecting corrosion-resistant materials, a rotary heat exchanger will deliver a high degree of efficiency with humidification and dehumidification properties in a lightweight package.
Heatex heat exchangers are made of aluminum, which has excellent properties such as efficient heat transfer capabilities and an extraordinarily long life span.
It’s easy to make both rotary and plate heat exchangers seawater-resistant by choosing corrosion-resistant alternatives during the product configuration.
In tests made according to ISO 9227, Heatex heat exchangers have proven to resist corrosion in salt spray tests for extensive periods of time.
Model E offers a highly compact casing and the airflows may be oriented side by side or top/bottom. The complete rotor may be installed in a vertical as well as in a horizontal orientation.
Model EQ features a segmented wheel that facilitates onsite installation or replacement in narrow spaces which also provides for lower transportation costs.
