  • WE ARE THE ONLY MANUFACTURERS OF ROTARY HEAT EXCHANGERS IN AUSTRALIA 

  • WE ARE 100% AUSTRALIAN OWNED AND MANUFACTURE THE UNIQUE AUSTRALIAN HIGH EFFICIENCY, LONG LIFE, THIN ROTOR MYLAR MATRIX HEAT WHEEL SINCE 1968

  • THE COMPANY WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1968 FOLLOWING RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT BY CSIRO AND MONASH UNIVERSITY INTO LOW ENERGY USE, ENERGY RECYCLING AND SOLAR AIR CONDITIONING

  • This unique 10cm thin Mylar Matrix Wheel transfers heat between two airstream by simply rotating the porous and highly corrosion resistant plastic PTE matrix between the hot and cold air streams at a low rotational speed of 18 rpm.

    The wheel is highly efficient in recycling heating and cooling energy from the exhaust air in air conditioned buildings to condition fresh air as well as in higher temperature industrial furnaces and driers. Balanced flow sensible heat efficiencies greater than 90% can be achieved at a reasonably low pressure drop.

    These wheels deliver substantial energy and cost savings all year round, as well as environmental benefits by reducing green house gas emissions. They are used extensively in Australian indoor pools, aquatic centres, commercial buildings and hospitals. They have a proven long life exceeding 30 years even in aggressive chlorinated pool and salt air sea side environments.

    Major benefits include
  • A simple rotating and self cleaning wheel

  • Decades of proven longevity even in aggressive indoor pool and sea side environments
