Heat exchangers are sensitive to air contamination and liquid. Inspired by the separation efficiency of the Lynx Kitchen separator system, a R&D project was proposed to investigate if the Lynx principle can be used to precondition air in order to avoid contamination in the heat exchange. EU laws requires heat exchanges with 78% efficiency for all business ventilation, including restaurant kitchen air. The project plans to investigate the underlying causes of buildup and contamination on heat exchanges and investigate how these can be adressed with the Lynx separation process. If successful, restaurants can possibly choose the 50-70% smaller and more effective versions of heat exchangers by using av combination of Lynx Separator and CAMFIL.
