Duo Reaps Heat Recovery Rewards

As a eco-friendly company Duo's are always exploring new avenues to reduce our dependency on natural resources.

The pressure to optimise energy usage has never been so imminent as the cost of raw materials keeps rising and new research detailing the increasing strain on the environment comes to the fore. To help ease this pressure, Duo Manchester have implemented a new function to optimize the compressed air related energy usage through heat recovery.

Duo depend on compressed air for the production machinery to function and as the site is open 24 hours that is a lot of compressed air! Almost all of the energy consumption from the supply of a compressor is converted into heat. Duo optimize the 'waste' heat through a heat recovery system. The heat generated by the screw compressor is redirected into the workshop keeping all of the team nice and toasty throughout the winter months and reduce Duo's dependency on natural materials to heat the workshop.
