Fruits and vegetables continue to ‘breathe’ or respire after they have been harvested. This process consumes oxygen and produces carbon dioxide. Excessively high carbon dioxide can damage product. In order to control excess CO2 , fresh air is induced into cold storage facilities but it results into heat loss and direct loss of revenue by running compressors extra time to meet desired temperature.
Energy Recovery Ventilator is a solution to overcome heat loss problem while keeping low levels of Carbon Dioxide levels in side cold storage. Accent Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) are the best choice for ventilating cold storage facilities. These units are designed to provide fresh air into the building while exhausting an equal amount of stale air to the outside.
Air to air principle of energy transfer:
Goria Automation Energy Recovery Units (ERU) heat recovery is a plate or rotary type air-to-air heat exchange designed to provide maximum energy efficiency in ventilated systems where heated or cooled air is let out and outdoor air is let in. In applications where ventilation is required or recycling of the same air is not allowed, energy recovery wheels or plate heat exchangers are used to recover the energy from exhaust air. This reduces the initial investment in HVAC equipment and minimises operating costs.
Since HVAC equipment is typically the largest source of energy consumption in commercial buildings, ERU investments are economically justified for outdoor air makeup. In new HVAC installations ERUs also allow ventilated systems to be sized with smaller compressors, lowering initial costs of the HVAC package.
