Contour plot of relative increase in energy recovery for the cases initialized without natural convection compared to the cases with natural convection, 2(Econv − Eno)/(Econv + Eno). The systems are produced at 0.2 kg/s for 10 years. The systems with convection included always have a higher heat recovery. Dip has a greater impact on relative increase in recovery than thickness of a system, for the ranges of parameters considered. However, thinner systems are more affected by convection
