Recuperator is a world leader in the design and manufacture of air-to-air heat exchangers.
Founded in 1973 by Antonio Contardo, the founder of Contardo (heat-exchanger coils), Recuperator has always stood out in the marketplace because of its innovative, quality products.


The Recuperator company was founded in 1973, during the great energy crisis. Its founders had realized the potential worldwide interest in heat exchange. Our products found application mainly in industry, and in large plants. In 1984, it became necessary to expand the Company's activities with state of the art technology, and, the following yeara new product line was set up, based on Recuperator's own design.
During the period 1992 to 1995, the Company expended capital on boosting its output and product diversification, with the object of meeting the demand for new applications in the area of residential equipment. To stimulate development of foreign markets, Recuperator engaged in specific marketing, expanding its network with agents worldwide.
Recuperator's products have continued to develop, and Recuperator has continued to invest in state of the art automated equipment. This has continually reduced costs and manufacturing time, and opened up new markets such as air-change equipment in small rooms, smoking areas and applications for the mobile telephone industry, continually meeting new and widely-varying requirements.
In recent years, the Company continued to invest in production, to ensure a product that is technologically advanced and economically competitive. In 2007 Recuperator moved into a new factory of Rescaldina (MI) with approximately 7000 square meters (75,000 square feet) of production area. Recuperator now stands as a micro "multinational", able to compete in the world markets.

Recuperator's production processes are highly efficient and innovative, beginning with the management of orders, with dedicated software, that automatically sends the needed information to the factory production floor.
Recuperator has 10 automated production lines, which allow for precision and speed not possible with manual production.. All stages are monitored and controlled by trained technicians, and the finished product is tested according to standard quality procedures. The production process is completed with the installation of dampers (if ordered) and the packaging of heat exchanger.

A continuing effort in research and development, has allowed Recuperator to produce innovative geometries and reinforce it's competitiveness, constantly improving price and performance. Recuperator has a well-equipped test laboratory with two wind tunnels meeting ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) standards.
This facility is used constantly throughout the year, in order to carry out the necessary checks on the heat exchangers manufactured, and especially in the development of new products. Recuperator carries out painstaking checks on all the materials received in the course of manufacturing and on finished products in accordance with regulations.
In accordance with domestic and foreign requirements, Recuperator has obtained the prestigious Eurovent certification of its product selection and performance programs.
Such recognition is evidence of the attention paid by the Company on this subject and is in addition to the certifications already obtained over the years through institutes such as HTA (Hochschule für Technik Architektur) of Lucerne (Switzerland), the Masini Institute of Research and Inspection of Rho (MI), and the University of Padua (Physics and Technology Department).
