English term or phrase: thermal wheel
Definition from Energy Efficient Technologies:
Thermal wheel is a heat transfer device with a rotating wheel, which allows the sensible heat transfer between the fresh air intake and exhaust air in an AC system. The air duct connections are arranged so that each of the airstreams flow axially through approximately one half of the wheel in a counter-flow pattern. The porous media that is heated from the warm duct airstream, rotates into the cold duct airstream where sensible heat is released.

Example sentence(s):
  • The amount of heating energy required to meet room conditions after the energy recovery device is reduced dramatically and, in some cases, can be removed altogether, particularly when a thermal wheel is the energy recovery device. Building Services&Environmental Engineer
  • Thermal wheels can recover about 85% of heat from ventilation air, transferring it to incoming fresh air, which then needs minimal additional heating to reach the required temperature for the building.
  • Stringent building regulations and tighter standards in building services provision has led to the sudden popularity of thermal wheel technology. A standard air handling unit can be turned into a highly efficient unit using thermal wheels, ultimately saving energy and reducing carbon emissions. Air Options Limited

No  Klementina Shahini: Radiator and Thermal Wheel are two different things

  -> And you are wrong, Klemi, and for once I would like some ground to your disagrees. The mistake you do is to compare "radiator" in English with radiator in Alb, which are very different. But this comes with experience and not by googling or opening diction

Rrota Termike

Definition from own experience or research:
Rrota Termike është një mekanizëm përcjellës i nxehtësisë me anën e një rrote rrotulluese e cila lejon përcjelljen e mjaftueshme të nxehtësisë midis ajrit që hyn dhe del në sistemin e kondicionerit.

Example sentence(s):
Rrotat termike dhe radiatorët janë dy mekanizma të ndryshme edhe pse bazohen në të njëjtat parime pune. Uebsajti i mëposhtëm e sqaron më mirë ndryshimin midis rrotës termike dhe radiatorit.

No  Fabiana Papastefani-Pezzoni: 1) The link you say that explains the difference between rrota termike dhe radiator in reality does not contain this information; 2) there is no such rrota termike in any manual, guide or technical document.
