Cool-Therm is introducing a new range of high-tech, high efficiency air handling units in the UK following an agreement with Austrian company Clima Tech.
The Clima Tech range joins Cool-Therm’s growing stable of high efficiency hvacr equipment, and complements its award-winning Turbomiser chiller to offer a complete chilled water and air handling solution.
Cool-Therm will offer both standard and bespoke systems, with the emphasis on high quality and premium performance, for use in applications such as hospitals, leisure centres, commercial buildings and retail developments.
Ken Strong, Col-Therm managing director, said: “We are delighted to be launching the Clima Tech range in the UK. We believe that together with our existing Turbomiser offering, it provides an unbeatable package that offers a comprehensive solution for the UK market.”
Energy recovery is an option, claimed to significantly boosting overall building energy performance and further reducing running costs. The Clima Tech system uses a rotating energy recovery wheel made of an air-permeable aluminium matrix with a very large interior surface.
Designed to recover either sensible heat only or both sensible and latent heat, the wheel consists of two half moon sections installed in a double-deck or side-by-side configuration, with supply air flowing through one half while warmed exhaust air flows in counter-flow through the other, as the wheel rotates continuously at low speed.
There are some 17 standard sizes of ahu with capacities up to 120,000 cu m/hr cooling and 210,000 cu m/hr heating and ventilation only.
Based on a modular construction design, the units combine sequences of encased modules assembled with a range of panels sizes (30mm, 50mm and 100mm). They provide the full range of air treatment options, including circulating, filtering, heating, cooling, humidifying, dehumidifying and mixing.
The Clima Tech TW-series is made from framed modules manufactured from galvanized steel profiles, joined by means of 3D injection moulded and reinforced PE corners - to form a Penta-post construction and is claimed to give the units outstanding rigidity and design flexibility.
