Paint spray booth applications require well-functioning ventilation. This often leads to a large volume of high-temperature air, which requires high amounts of energy that, if not recovered, is lost as waste heat.
Depending on the setup, a single car can take a day or two for priming, water-based application, drying, clear-coating, and polishing. A paint booth’s efficiency can differ between three and six cars daily, making an energy recovery solution that encompasses all the below vital for constant output efficiency.
A significant part of the thermal energy of the high-temperature air and
water leaving the equipment of the surface treatment lines can be recovered with air-to-air heat exchangers and fed back to the input points that require heating. This energy is usually considered waste heat. Recovered thermal energy is used to heat the incoming or circulated air, shorten cycle times, and save significant heating energy costs.
Heatex heat recovery units are highly customizable, efficient, compact, and suited to:
Also, compared to liquid-to-air heat exchanges, air-to-air heat exchangers are:
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:
We recommend Model Z, entirely made of stainless steel, for extra tough environments.Heatex Crossflow Heat Exchangers
Heatex rotary heat exchangers enable humidity transfer and generally provide higher efficiency than a plate heat exchanger.
Typical options for paint booth applications include:
