AAON V3 SeriesAir handling unit

V3 Series air handling units with energy-recovery wheels are available from 450 to 10,000 cfm and provide a solution to help a building exceed ASHRAE standards and acquire LEED points. V3 Series units include energy-saving, double-wall rigid polyurethane foam-injected panel construction; high-efficiency direct-drive backward-curved plenum ECM supply and exhaust fans; corrosion-resistant, double-sloped stainless steel drain pans; and serviceability features. Energy-saving options include fully modulating AMCA-certified low-leakage economizer dampers, air-source heat pump heating, and factory-provided split-system controls capable of controlling 10% to 100% variable-capacity compressors for precise capacity modulation.


Big Ass Solutions Powerfoil X3.0Smart industrial fan

The Powerfoil X3.0 smart industrial fan produces 15% more airflow than its predecessor without compromising durability and reliability. Powerfoil X3.0 includes a SmartSense controller that provides convenience and improves efficiency by eliminating the guesswork of finding the ideal air speed when temperatures change. SmartSense features summer and winter modes as well as dual air temperature sensors. When temperatures elevate in summer, the fan speeds up to combat the heat with a cooling effect of up to 10°F. In winter, SmartSense automatically slows the fan to gently push rising heated air back down to occupants without creating a draft, easing the facility heater workload and reducing energy costs.

Carel heaterSteam titaniumHigh-precision heater humidifier

The heaterSteam titanium features heating elements designed to work with extremely aggressive water, such as demineralized/deionized water with conductivity below 1 µS/cm and softened water of up to 0°fH. The reliability of the titanium heating element in combination with the overheating protection makes this solution ideal for applications where service continuity is essential (i.e., clean rooms, hospitals, and museums). By using demineralized water, this heater humidifier can meet humidity requirements with ±1% accuracy. The production-capacity modulation range from 0 to 100% in combination with the possibility of preheating the water inside the boiler means that heaterSteam is ready to respond to humidity requirements.
