The GUPEX® air to air (gas to gas) plastic plate heat exchanger are designed for air and gas flows from 2000 m3⁄h (1200 cfm) and up to more than 1 million m3⁄h (>600,000 cfm). The design is modular to fit any air and gas flow volume.
The heat exchanger plates are made of plastic, or glassfibre reinforced polyester (GPR), which makes the whole heat exchanger corrosion proof in corrosive air and environment. Where other non corrosion proof materials like aluminium or steel corrode to destruction within a couple of years, the GUPEX® plastic plate heat exchanger lasts for many, many years giving a very favourable return on the investment in the air heat recovery equipment.
The maximum temperature of the air or gas into the heat exchanger is 160°C.
The maximum permitted pressure difference between supply and extract side of the heat exchanger is 1500 Pa.
The pressure drop through the heat exchanger is very low, at only 300 – 600 Pa, requiring less fan power than most other heat exchangers (or no fans at all).
