A robust casing platform»The EU and EC-units are built on a commondesign platform, which means that you canchoose between module or compact andget the same good casing specifications.Same robust designThe casing is built on a framework of hollowsection steel profiles bolted to sturdy cornerpieces of aluminium or composite material.Double skinned panels form the cladding.The casing meets the performance requirementsof the CEN standards. Apart from thenormal galvanized finish, stainless steel orpre-coated steel are available options on themodular unit.For outdoor units or units selected forCEN B leakage the joints between panel andframe are sealed.Security on every doorEach door is equipped with a lockablehandle as standard. The handle is designedto avoid thermal bridges and leakage.Environmentally safe insulationThe EU and EC air handling units bothuse mineral wool as the casing insulation.Mineral wool, which is non-combustible,gives both high-quality acoustic insulationand excellent thermal insulation. The frameworkis also available with insulation.Each door is equipped asstandard with a lockablehandle.A stable frame design of enclosed steelsections and corners made up of acomposite material.The frame section for thesmall units up to EU size 53and all EC units.Larger units are built on morerobust frame sections forstrength and stability.7

Highly efficient heat recovery»The most suitable alternative isdependent on the conditions ineach individual project.Temperature efficiency is a good measurementto indicate the effectiveness of a heatrecovery unit. The greater the efficiency,the more heat recovered. Nevertheless,you should not always aim for maximumefficiency.Regoterm ®Regoterm ® is the heat recovery unit that hasthe highest temperature efficiency, about85 per cent and gives the greatest operatingeconomy savings. It can also recover coldand moisture. A large, effective rotor areagives greater recovery. Laminar air flowgives a low pressure drop and low energyconsumption.Ecoterm ®In installations where the risk of leakagebetween the supply and exhaust air cannotbe tolerated, we can provide the liquidcoupled heat exchanger Ecoterm ® with atemperature efficiency up to approximately.65 per cent. As this heat recovery system isbased on separate supply and exhaust airunits it is only used in our modular EU unit.Recuterm ®The plate heat exchanger Recuterm ® has atemperature efficiency of up to 65 per cent.Equipped with our patented section-bysectiondefrosting an energy saving solutionis obtained that results in a low outputrequirement for the after-heater.Turboterm Turboterm is a new rotary heat exchangerwith an extremely high temperatureefficiency up to 90 per cent, however,with the same functional lengthas Regoterm ® .Turboterm gives a verylow life cycle cost and isthe obvious choice forinstallations with highersupply air temperaturesin cold climates or wherecooling recovery is important.EC-unit withplate heat exchanger.Econet ® is a further development of Ecoterm ® with anumber of benefits. It is solely used with the EU-unit.Read more about Econet ® on page 12.11Rotary heatexchanger cassette.

No need for you to select andorder the separate components, we havealready done it for you!The only job you have to do is assemblethe prefabricated parts on site and supplyany water/water heat exchangers tosupplement the heat output.Econet ® offers higher efficiency– for more of the timeNormal liquid coupled heat recovery systemsare selected for specific airflow rates.The efficiency of the system is then a functionof the airflow rate and is often optimized forthe maximum design flow. In reality, ventilation12

systems often run at airflow rates other thanthe maximum design and we then find thatthe heat recovery system is no longer operatingat optimum. With Econet ® , however, theunique control system continuously monitorsthe airflow rate and adjusts the water flowrate to provide continual optimum recovery.For high efficiencies, the heat exchangersshould have many tube rows and long circuitsso that the heat transfer area is large and thewater temperature change maximized. Thisnormally means that the water pressure dropis relatively high. The maximum pressure thatcan be developed by the pump often limitsthe potential efficiency of these systems.Econet ® is equipped with high-pressurepumps that allow us to get the best out ofthe system and Econet ® can be selected fortemperature efficiencies as high as 70%.Boost the heat whenrecovered heat is not enoughNormally air-handling systems are equippedwith additional heating coils so that therequired supply air temperature can be metwhen the recovered heat is insufficient.Econet ® offers you a better way to achievethis. The system has the facility to connecthot water to the recovery circuit. The controlsystem is set up to control the heat recoveryand boost heat in sequence in the same coilcircuit. This means that the air-handling unitcan be shorter and the air pressure droplower. But another, perhaps more importantfeature is that because the heat recoverycoils are so large, the hot water temperaturedoes not need to be very high. Water at atemperature as low as 15-20°C can besufficient, depending on the required supplyair temperature. This means that low-gradeheat from refrigeration systems or CHPsystems can be utilized.Econet ® can help to lower return watertemperatures, which can be useful in certainsystems such as CHP.Need cooling too?Econet ® can also help withthis. The high temperatureefficiency means that somesensible cooling can berecovered but the systemallows cooling water to beconnected in the same way asthe hot water described above.-10°CFlexibilityThe main advantage of liquid coupled heatrecovery systems is that the supply andexhaust air streams are physically separated.This is very important in certain applicationswhere cross contamination is not acceptablesuch as hospitals, food preparation areasand pharmaceutical production plants.Because the heat exchangers are separated,it allows the supply and extract systems tobe placed in the most convenient spaces inthe building.The vast number of variations of size, andcoil geometry allow for full optimizationfrom an energy, hygiene and space point ofview.100°CTapwaterReturn45°CReturn~20°C22°C17°C22°C17°CEconet ® is perfect for recoverytogether with waste heat.Econet ® utilises the availablewaste heat so effectively thatmost of the energy requiredduring the winter can becovered through waste heat.Temperature efficiency in theillustration above: 67,5%~35°CRadiatorConventional systemEconet system100°CTap waterRadiatorVentilationVentilation13

Natural cooling with CoolMaster ®»CoolMaster ® is a cooling system that cools the air with the helpof an evaporative humidifier in the extract air.The refrigerant used is fresh water! The systemcontains no chemicals and needs no refrigerationmachine. CoolMaster ® is easy to install,operating costs are kept low and CoolMaster ®takes up very little space.How does it work?Evaporating water absorbs heat from itssurroundings. For example, you know thatwhen you leave the shower it is the waterevaporating from your skin that causes youto feel cold. That is why evaporativehumidifiers cool as well as humidify the air.Key components in a CoolMaster ® airhandling unit are the evaporative humidifierthat cools the exhaust air and an effectiveheat exchanger that transfers the coolingeffect to the supply air.When the outdoor temperature is high,the humidifier is used to cool the extract air.Via the heat exchanger, the exhaust air thencools the outdoor air before it enters thebuilding.How much cooler is it?Normally the temperature of the supply air canbe reduced by 4-5 degrees. The temperaturereduction is influenced by several factors.The outdoor air temperature and thetemperature and humidity of the exhaust airaffect the result. Naturally it is important tochoose an air humidifier and a heat exchangerwith a high efficiency.As the outline diagram below illustratesyou can lower indoor temperatures by 4-5 °Cand sometimes up to 8 degrees.CoolMaster ® cannot closely give you controlair conditioning, but the temperaturereduction the system gives represents significantimprovements in comfort, productivityand safety in comfort applications.Our user friendly product selection programcalculates the temperature reduction youwill get on the supply air, and providescomprehensive information about your unit.The program also calculates the total annualoperating cost and gives an estimated lifecycle cost (LCC).FloorMaster ®diffuser2127°C10g/kg27°C9g/kg22,5°CCoolMaster ® is an idealpartner for the Floor-Master ® system.14

What is the operating cost?The operating cost depends on the relevantclimate, how the system is used andlocal electricity and water costs.For a standard comfort ventilation system inthe Nordic climate, water consumption isabout 50 m 3 per year and m 3 /s air.The pressure drop across the humidifiermeans a higher energy cost to drive theexhaust air fan. This can be about 1200 kWhper m 3 air and year. However, the increasecan be halved if the cassette is removedduring the winter months.Key components in a CoolMaster ®air handling unit15
