HVAC System Using Membrane Technology to Be Launched

AC technology ‘reclaims 80% of energy’

RAC, November 26, 2013

The system was developed in partnership with Saskatoon-based Venmar CES Inc. and the University of Saskatchewan mechanical engineering research group.

It uses a liquid-to-air membrane energy exchanger (LAMEE), which uses membranes to effectively recover moisture and heat energy before it is wasted in the building’s exhaust air.

PhD student Davood Ghadiri Moghaddam is part of a University of Saskatchewan mechanical engineering research group that designed an HVAC system capable of reclaiming up to 80 per cent of energy other systems would waste.
