Ecopack Condensing Flue Exchanger
A conventional hot water heater burns fuel to provide the energy to heat the water in the traditional manner. A condensing water heater does the same thing but in addition, it recovers the heat usually lost to the flue gasses and uses that too. The term “condensing” refers to the fact that the flue gasses are cooled passed the point that water vapour condenses into liquid so the latent heat of evaporation is recovered.
An Ecopack Condensing flue exchanger basically turns a conventional water heater into a condensing one. Benefit from all the economic and environmental positives of a condensing system without the full cost of having to upgrade a conventional one.
Flue Heat Recovery System.
The Ecopack condensing flue exchanger is designed to recoup up to 24% of heat normally lost in the flue gases from conventional boilers. Effectively the Ecopack converts a standard gas fired boiler into a fully condensing unit.
The Ecopack is a shell and tube heat exchanger manufactured in 316 grade stainless steel. The flue collector boxes are also constructed in stainless steel. The inlet flue box can be swivelled through 360° for easy alignment with existing flue systems.
Two versions of the Ecopack are available, with or without a fan. The unfanned version can be used where there is already a fan in the flue or where the boiler/burner unit is capable of sufficient overpressure to overcome the resistance of the Ecopack.
