High heat transfer effectiveness is produced by corrugating the heat transfer plates to achieve a sinusoidal wave pattern. The corrugated surface creates air flow turbulence as the air passes through the unit. Heat transfer is further enhanced by using a counterflow design. Plate sizes vary from 12", 36", 42" and 48", with unit lengths of 50", 74" and 98".
As your process air enters the unit, it's directed over the corrugated plates counterflow to the heated air. Heat from the waste air is absorbed by the plates and transferred to the cooler airstream... then exits the unit as recovered heat you can reuse or recycle.
