Heat Recovery

Innovative Heat Exchanger - draperHEATEX WHEEL

Heat Recovery


The distinctive feature of the draperHEATEX WHEEL is it's simple design and efficient method of operation. Through the use of the heat exchanger, incoming fresh air is directed by the outgoing exhaust air. This helps to save energy and simultaneously protect the environment. The draperHEATEX WHEEL can be used in new systems and in existing ventilation systems, as a retrofit. 


The draperHEATEX WHEEL reduces overall heat energy by 70%. This allows precise control of renewables and minimises gas or oil usage.
