Title: Solar Air Heating at the Linamar CAMTAC Facility in Guelph,Ontario
Author: Brennan, Ryan; England, Nancy; Maki, Taylor
Abstract: A transpired air collector (TAC) installation is designed and analyzed for the purpose of reducing energy costs at Linamar's CAMTAC Manufacturing facility in Guelph, Ontario. Ventilation air preheating was targeted due to high annual costs. A variety of solar heating technologies were researched, and transpired air collectors were deemed the most applicable. A final detailed design was prepared and is presented herein. A number of design options were investigated. The most promising option offers annual renewable energy delivery of 240 MWh, and a 12 year payback period.
