Industrial Heat Recovery System

Reclaim Escaped Heat for Measurable Energy Savings


As air is exhausted from process equipment, that heat is lost as well. Heat recovery systems help to reclaim some of this heat that escapes with the exhausted air, in turn providing measurable energy savings. On average, GFS heat recovery systems will provide 40-50% energy savings for air make-up systems serving the booth for both heating and cooling.

Industrial Heat Recovery System Product Info

Air-to-Air Heat Exchanger A flat plate air-to-air heat exchanger captures heat from the exhausted air and uses that heat to heat up the incoming fresh air into the booth or oven. This heat exchanger is 50-60 percent effective, dependent upon face velocity and plate spacing.
Variable Speed Unit with Economizer The Economizer feature will slow the booth and air make-up unit to half speed when the painter isn’t spraying in the booth. Reducing the booth to half speed will reduce the amount of heat being exhausted and reduce electrical usage.
Direct-Fired Burner The direct-fired burner offers 100 percent thermal efficiency, as opposed to 80 percent (nominal) efficiency for an indirect fired air make-up heater. The turndown ratio for direct-fired units is much greater than common indirect fired units. This means better control of discharge air temperatures and better use of fuel energy to heat the air as it moves across the burner.

Surface Preparation Equipment

Surface preparation is an essential, yet often overlooked part of the powder coating application process. Powder application requires a clean surface for powder to adhere properly. By cleaning and prepping metal products before they are powder coated, your coating better bonds to the substrate and can withstand exterior weathering. GFS offers a complete line of surface preparation equipment for sanding, grinding, blasting and washing — including Dust Collection Booths, Blast Booths, Pretreatment Washers and Wash Booths.
