Can anybody please tell me regarding thermal wheel? How efficient is it? Can it be used even for small scale heat recovery systems?

    A Thermal Wheel, also known as a Rotary heat exchanger, or Rotary air-to-air enthalpy wheel, or Heat recovery wheel, is a type of energy recovery heat exchanger positioned within the supply and exhaust air streams of an air handling system, or in the exhaust gases of an industrial process, in order to recover the heat energy. Other variants include Enthalpy wheels and Desiccant wheels. A cooling-specific thermal wheel is sometimes referred to as a Kyoto wheel.
