Fläkt Woods is pleased to announce the launch of a new series of energy recovery units, known as e3co, they promise affordability and quality from a renowned name within the HVAC industry
The e3co Crown is a technological innovation, with high efficiency EUROVENT certified counter flow aluminium heat plate exchangers, which are used to help capture the energy contained in normally exhausted buildings and utilise it to treat the incoming outdoor ventilation air, providing energy recovery efficiencies in excess of 90%.
With ever increasing energy costs, E3co Crown energy recovery units will prove to be an excellent investment decision, returning a positive Net Present Value (NPV) and high return on investment with a very short payback period.
The new range incorporates an array of energy efficiency features, helping to dramatically cut building energy consumption. Fans incorporate EC motor technology that already exceed the specified Ecodesign targets set for 2015 – future proofing the installation. The modular construction also has complete thermal bridging features to minimise losses, and seals that recover their state if panels are removed so that an airtight seal is guaranteed during use.
Simplicity of use is one of their main selling points, with plug and play technology, the units are compact and self regulating, adjusting themselves automatically, according to the operating load.
They provide up to 1.3 m3/sec air flow rates, and have both vertical and horizontal mounting configurations. A built in proportional motorized bypass means during warmer months Crown will pre-cool (night cooling) the building all along the night, while during the day, for all seasons regarding the inside and outside temperature difference, it will have a free-heating or free-cooling self-regulating function. Moreover, during cooler months it is protecting the core from freezing.
Once the system is installed they have full BMS communicating functionality, allowing the units to integrate within the buildings other automated systems, offering significant energy saving and improved control and management of the building operations.
All E3co Crown units are double skin insulated and their precision modular aluminium frames (with integrated drain pan and pipe) guarantee rigidity as well as lightness for ease of installation.
Commenting on the launch Emmanuel Guibal, Product and Market Development Director of Fläkt Woods Ventilations Solutions said “Their ability to meet the BREEAM ventilation and energy standards, while improving indoor air quality and reducing total HVAC equipment capacity, means the new Crown system is set to become first choice, for contractors and building owners alike”
“This technology not only demonstrates an effective means of reducing energy costs and heating and cooling loads, but will allow for the scaling down of alternative HVAC equipment.”
