Pumped Glycol Energy Recovery | Efficiency vs. Effectiveness

Topic: High Performance Run Around Energy Recovery Systems Guest Blogger: Rudolf Zaengerle, Ph. D. Konvekta USA, Inc There is some confusion about the terms ‘efficiency’ and ‘effectiveness’:  Efficiency ASHRAE defines ‘temperature transfer efficiency’ (or sometimes ‘enthalpy transfer efficiency’ if enthalpy is used instead of temperature) as follows: μT = (TE1 – TE2) / (TE1 –… Read more »

Ask Rick: Pumped Glycol Energy Recovery | What size systems make sense for Konvekta?

Q.  What size systems make sense for Konvekta?   I am working on a project where we are considering glycol run around coils for heat recovery. I would like to consider using a Konvekta system.The building in question is an existing hazardous materials storage building with 24×7 exhaust air requirements. There are 16 separate exhaust… Read more »
