ENERGY RECOVERY SYSTEMS
First Modular System
Energy Wall's unique modular cores are able to be stacked to create a literal "energy wall", which can replace virtually any rotary wheel heat or energy exchanger. The system has no motors, belts, moving parts, or active seals to wear out and require maintenance. Media is not moved from one air stream to another, so cross-contamination is eliminated along with energy-wasting purge cycles.

Any Size, Any Shape
Energy Wall™ Module cores are available in widths and heights from 6" to 24", in 6" increments in either direction. The actual core depth is always 8", but manifolds may be added to control air flow, that will make the cores 12", 18" or 24" deep, depending on the size of the system.
The size of the module cores is selected by the space they must fit into, and the pressure drop, air volume, and efficiency desired. Width and height are independent of each other, with the rectangular shape matching any air handler configuration. No need to "fit a round peg into a square hole", as with wheels.
Any Airflow Pattern
Energy Wall's unique manifold system operates with straight through air flow, but also permits transverse air flow - impossible with rotary wheels.
Turning the module cores 90°, permits operation in over-under air handler configurations.
Energy Wall's cores have a patented, "open" mesh spacer between the plates, which turbulates the air, increasing efficiency. This spacer is also designed to be compressible so that, during manufacturing, the number of plates per inch can actually be adjusted +-30%, to achieve custom air volumes, pressure drops, and efficiencies. Contact the factory if you require this type of customization, as the calculations are somewhat complex.
