The Hoval design F plate heat exchanger is designed for installation in ventilation and air conditioning units and for process engineering applications. The energy recovery unit is available in different sizes for air flow rates from approx. 2000 to 100,000 m³/h.

Reduces CO2 emissions
Lower investment for heat generation and distribution
Ready-to-install product with bypass and dampers
Perfectly coordinated system (exchanger package, bypass, dampers)

The advantages

  • Proven: many years of providing the ideal solution for numerous applications, including in process engineering
  • Unique: single exchanger available up to size 160
  • Hygienic: condensate drains off in all directions
  • Balanced: flow irregularities are balanced out
  • Individual: wide range of accessories

Technical information

  • Reliable: Eurovent-certified and hygiene-certified
  • Stable: differential pressure stability up to 2000 Pa
  • Sealed: double fold between the aluminium plates
  • Flexible: width can be selected in 1 mm increments
  • Safe: no electrical connections required
  • Simple: 45° corner sections simplify installation and reduce the diagonal dimensions
  • Quick: simple handling as a result of double fold on the edges of the side walls


The exchanger package is fitted into casing made up of corner sections and side walls.

  • The corners of the exchanger package are sealed into the corner sections with a sealing compound.
  • The side walls are bolted to the corner sections. Other components can be bolted or riveted directly to the walls.
  • The corner sections are made of aluminium and the side walls of corrosion resistant sheet metal.

Exchanger package

The exchanger package consists of aluminium plates with V-shaped spacer grooves. The plate profile has been optimised through extensive testing for thermal efficiency, pressure drop and rigidity. The plates are joined together via an interlocking fold. This means that the material is several times thicker at the air inlet and outlet. It makes the exchanger package extremely rigid.
