Recovering the energy from exhaust air in restaurant ventilation is challenging due to high levels of soot and grease damaging the equipment. Until now, filtering the air in an attempt to remove the grease and soot has been the only solution, and maintenance costs are often exceeding the energy savings. But now there is a different solution - Lepido.
Lepido is typically a three-part system including a recovery unit, heat pump and control system. These units can be configured in order to perform in both high and low temperature environments. The Lepido recovery unit is made to fit standard flue dimensions, enabling seamless installations, pre and post construction.
The unit can be installed in and outdoors, vertically and horizontally. The control system is MODBUS based and easily integrates into any superordinate systems.
Recovered energy can be used for:
Energy recovery based on exhaust air heat pump, ideal for pre-heating of tap water and delivery of comfort ventilation.
Energy recovery based on exhaust air heat pump, for heating (or cooling) with flexible delivery temperature.
