Waste no energy
Lepido is a heavy-duty heat exchanger for restaurant ventilation. It is built to withstand grease and soot without the use of filtering techniques.
Particle Repellent Geometry
Lepido recovers energy from polluted airstreams with up to 65% efficiency thanks to our patented Particle Repellent Geometry (PRG®)
How PRG works
Lepido, being a heavy-duty heat exchanger, is larger compared to a traditional heat exchanger to make room for our patented geometry of the recovery coils. The space between the coils is much larger than between fins of a traditional heat exchanger.
The result is a unique airflow pattern where most of the particles can pass through the heat exchanger instead of sticking to the coils. This slows down the build-up on the coils and makes the air pressure drop minimal, even if a coating has formed.
Lepido, being coil-based with one hundred percent counter-current and multiple fluid patterns, has the same heat transmission element surface area as a traditional heat exchanger.
