Alufoil Trophy 2019 - "Resource Efficiency"

Hygrosieve® is a new type of lacquered aluminum which guarantees high speed adsorption/desorption of water moisture and a molecular sieve effect that, while improving the penetration of environmental moisture, rejects pollutants and other residues. This improves air circulation and cleanliness.

Hygrosieve® ensures in this way higher efficiency of the rotor with:

  • a reduction of the flow rates of refrigerant fluid
  • 15% less electrical energy consumption
