SEISMICALLY RATED FANS
When a project calls for seismically rated equipment, there are a number of requirements that need to be considered. This article outlines the methodology of the seismic certification process and considerations involved to properly determine the need for a seismically certified fan. Click here to read more.
DIGITAL SCROLL COMPRESSORS
Greenheck has introduced digital scroll compressors in its Model ERCH and Model VER energy recovery ventilators to improve temperature and humidity control and save energy. Featuring an integral controller with a time-averaging sequence, the rate at which the scrolls are engaged and disengaged varies in order to match the required cooling capacity.
Using digital scrolls for capacity control provides leaving air temperatures as precise as 1 degree F. In addition to precise temperature control, digital scrolls offer cooling capacity turndown from 10 to 100%. The compressor turndown results in longer cycle times that improve humidity control, reduce compressor wear, and eliminate the need for hot gas bypass to improve the overall efficiency of the system.
