VHX
Economizer - Single Row

When properly implemented, heat recovery ventilation systems such as the single-row, single stage ENERVEX Vortex Heat Exchanger (VHX) can help you conserve energy and save 10+% on fuel annually.

The VHX is a highly versatile and efficient flue gas economizer for single OR multiple boilers of atmospheric, fan-assisted, or forced-draft design. Its fully packaged, lightweight, round configuration, integrated modulating bypass, and efficient hybrid microchannel/plate heat exchanger allows extremely high heat transfer capability and low flow resistance.

Features

  • Use with ANY boiler type, baking oven, process oven etc.
  • Vertical or horizontal installation 
  • 316L stainless steel housing & heat exchanger
  • Condensing & non-condensing applications with no modification
  • Compact and lightweight to save space
  • Heat Modules can act as individual liquid circuits
  • Highly configurable
  • Integrated bypass eliminates overheating of heat exchanger
  • Integrated flexible tube connections

Heat-Module Manifold

The HMM heat-module manifolds are used in conjunction with the VHX Economizers. They are used to connect the heating on the supply and return sides.

Power Venter

Ruggedly built high-temperature exhaust fan designed for inline mounting or termination mounting for small and large applications. For vertical or horizontal installation indoors or outdoors.

Economizer Controller

A totally integrated heat recovery control system that monitors inlet and outlet water and flue gas temperatures to maintain the outlet water temperature you need, while maximizing heat waste recovery and efficiency.

Modulating Pressure Controller

A sophisticated multi-use draft and pressure controller with integrated webserver and remote access used with fans and dampers to monitor and maintain a constant pressure in commercial boiler and building applications.
