Passively Recovering Waste Heat Energy With Every Shower
Recoup Pipe+ HE
Our primary WWHRS system with great efficiencies to achieve maximum SAP points and returns on investment. It has all the benefits of a “double walled” exchanger and our PVC outer, but also boasts up to 67% efficiency. So it will tick a box for every technical director or specifier looking for an even greater boost in SAP. The Recoup Pipe+ HE system replaced the Recoup Pro-pipe+ and the Recoup Pipe+ in our waste water heat recovery product portfolio. Providing incredible pounds to points ratio in SAP, the double walled (EN1717) Copper heat exchanger is mechanically pulled together giving consistent production. Designed specifically for durability and high efficiencies, without compromising quality or performance consistency.
Like the Recoup Pro-pipe+, it offers high efficiencies in return for modest prices; and like the all of our vertical systems, it benefits from our unique PVC outer casing providing unrivalled benefits, including cost reduction, manufacturing consistency, on site theft deterrent and a lower product weight. With a jaw dropping 67% efficiency maximum, the Recoup Pipe+ HE will ensure the highest SAP points within our range.
