Free Hot Water™ - Heat Recovery System
Want Free Hot Water™? Looking to save some money and the environment? Then you should install the Lancer Ecco Heat™, Free Hot Water™ - Heat Recovery system.
Lancer Ecco Heat™ recovery units capture the wasted heat from refrigeration and air conditioning systems and converts it to free hot water by de-superheating the discharge vapour before the condenser.
Heat Recovery Systems are ideal for;
- small convenience stores
- convention centres
- food processors
- fast food outlets
Used across Australia and the world, Lancer Ecco Heat™ can re-claim approximately 15-25% of the total heat that would otherwise be rejected by the condenser.
The units are designed to have a rapid payback period, which in some cases could be as little as 12 months.
Heat Recovery Systems are made up of two parts:
- a de-superheater and
- a water storage tank.
The de-superheater features a double wall tube in tube heat exchanger, making it suitable for portable water with a counter flow design for maximum heat transfer.
The optional water storage tank consists of a stainless steel tank insulated with polyurethane foam and protected with a polymer casing.
A 50kW unit running on R404 will provide approximately 48,000kj of energy per hour from the host system’s output. It will heat 315 litres of water, raising the temperature approximately 35°C every hour*.
A 16kW system will raise the water temperature approximately 12°C every hour*.
*Assuming the refrigeration capacity of 5kw and compressor running 85% of the time.
Please note actual heat reclaimed will depend on system operation.
