Counter Flow was founded with the aim to design, manufacture and supply highly efficient products for wastewater heat recovery (WWHR), with a specific focus on shower wastewater heat recovery. This is due to the fact that showers account for more than 80% of the total hot water consumption (in the Netherlands), making them an ideal location for maximizing heat recovery. Of course, hot water is also used for bathing and (dish)washing, but that only concerns a small part of the total hot water consumption.
The Dutch government also recognises that the “shower heat exchanger” technique can make a substantial contribution to energy saving, and thus to the desired reduction of all kinds of emissions. The technique is therefore included in the system used to calculate the energy efficiency of a building. Counter Flow can lean on more than 15 years of experience in the design and production of shower-heat recovery products, and has everything in-house to turn new concepts and ideas into innovative products with which its customers can serve the market.
By sharing our passion for shower waste water heat recovery, we aim to increase awareness and use of this technology. At the same time, we will constantly strive to achieve our goals and leave the best possible world for future generations.
