GEA has redesigned the casings of its air handling units, claiming benefits in both stability and thermal imporvements
The changes apply to GEA COM4 ready-to-connect compact units and the GEA CAIRplus range, with modular configuration, together with GEA CAIRfricostar swimming-pool dehumidifier units.
The company says that the redesign process has not only involved overall stability, quality value, and optical impression but GEA developers have paid special attention to casing tightness and thermal improvements.
The entire casing structure (consisting of a combination of aluminium profile sections and panels) has been redesigned, focusing primarily on enhanced thermal insulation.
Improvements included an increase in panel thickness from 50 to 60 mm. Thanks to this 20 per cent increase, GEA says the CAIRfricostar units now satisfy the specifications for thermal insulation class T2 even in their basic version.
All profile-section connectors are now fitted with inserted seals to prevent cold bridges. As an option, all doors can also be fitted with exchangeable seals. The panels, now close flush with the tubular frame of the unit, enabling easier cleaning of these Eurovent-certified systems.
