Plate Polymeric membrane

Polymeric membrane

Used with our highly popular EPE5200 and EPE5500 enthalpy plate exchangers, Innergy tech’s high performance polymeric membrane is the reason behind our exchangers’ truly outstanding sensible and latent recovery. In fact, it’s not only transfers sensible energy, but also offers the highest latent recovery available on the market today.

Each membrane layer acts as a physical wall that separates the hot and humid airflow from the cold and dry one. Water (latent energy) transfer is based on the difference in vapor pressures of both airflows. The polymeric membrane, constantly seeking to balance the pressures, absorbs water from the high pressure side and releases it on the low pressure side.

Heat Pipe The SUPERIOR mono-material integral finned tube technology

Mono material integral finned tube technology 1

Completely made of a single 100% aluminum tube, this technology eliminates the usual tube-to-fin bond resistance encountered with other technologies. Its mono-material construction and extruded shape also prevent any corrosive liquids from seeping beneath the fins thus eliminating any risk of crevice or galvanic corrosion often encountered at the fin “root” with non-extruded or dual-material technologies and only available at Innergy Tech.

In all systems which use the fin plates, wrap-on fins or embedded fins technologies, two factors, the external fouling resistance and tube-to-fin bond resistance, can reduce the performance of the heat pipe over time. One of the greatest advantages of the mono-material integral finned tube technology is that there is simply no assembly and therefore no tube-to-fin bond resistance. All tubes are formed from a cold rotary extrusion process into the complete tube with fins end product.

The mono-material integral finned tube technology offered by Innergy tech is not subject to the above limitations and will result in the most reliable and best corrosion resistant exchangers.

Controlable heat pipe

Airside bypass damper 1

  1. Precool wrap-around heat pipe section
  2. Cooling coil
  3. Reheat wrap-around heat pipe section
  4. Bypass damper

In cases where capacity reduction is truly needed, a simple airside bypass damper with common controls is the best option. In fact, the bypass damper increase heat pipes effectiveness. As more air is bypassed around the heat pipe, the whole heat pipe assembly’s effectiveness (or reheat capacity) is gradually reduced. This bypass can be modulated for variable temperature control.

Wheel The revolutionary air loopTM labyrinth seal

(patent pending)

Wheel The revolutionary air loopTM labyrinth seal  1

Finally a seal tested for real applications of up to 5” WC and leading to greatly reduced fan operating costs.


The labyrinth effect

The labyrinth effect is the result of the air expansion within the seal's cavity. For an ideal labyrinth seal, the air expands adiabatically within the seal and all its kinetic energy is transformed into thermal energy so that its velocity as it reaches the second lip is zero.

The AirLoopTM Labyrinth Seal has been independently tested and is certified through the AHRI 1060 standard for up to 5'' WC pressure differentials (Innergy tech I3 energy recovery wheel). It's improved labyrinth effect, easier installation and optimized high pressure design result in an all time low when it comes to energy recovery wheel leakage levels. Most importantly, the AirLoopTM Labyrinth Seal results in great savings thanks to greatly reduced fan energy use.
