Parallel-plates enthalpy exchangers are one of the most commonly encountered energy recovery devices that are used to simultaneously transfer both sensible heat and moisture between fresh air and exhaust ventilation. In this investigation, an application scale parallel-plates enthalpy exchangers is manufactured. The enthalpy exchanger is tested with an applicable experimental set-up. The performances of sensible latent and total energy exchanging have been investigated experimentally under various operating conditions. The sensible, latent and enthalpy effectiveness increase with an increase of the fresh air temperature. The sensible effectiveness is constant at 74% when the fresh air relative humidity increases. However, the latent effectiveness increases with an increase of the relative humidity.
