CompAir’s retro heat recovery kits for air compressors are a low cost option, turning the excess heat generated (and usually lost) to your advantage. The system also reduces your carbon footprint and saves you money.
Roughly 10% of all electricity consumed by industry is used to generate compressed air, with the majority converted to heat which is subsequently lost to the atmosphere.
The heat generated is paid for during the compression process and then again during its removal via cooling fans.
Efficient Heat Recovery Systems
Why pay for your heat twice, 94% of heat can be recovered and re-used for heating systems, to generate hot water and also for application processes within your installation.
