Air to Air Heat Exchangers for Effective Heat Transfer
With increasing demand for energy efficient buildings, heat pipe-based heat exchangers can be utilized to recover heat from warmer air and add it to cooler air to ensure that the energy is not wasted.
Heat pipe heat exchangers can be oriented either horizontally or vertically to suit the layout of ducts. For a horizontal, side-by-side layout of ducts, the heat pipes will be sloping towards the warmer air duct. Similarly, for a vertically stacked duct arrangement, the warmer air duct will be at the bottom.
