Powered Aire provides ECM-based Air Curtain Solutions

Air CurtainBuckley Associates is now the exclusive represrentative of Powered Aire, a manufacturer of a wide range of air curtain products. Their product portfolio includes models that include: unheated, electric heated, hydronic, steam, direct/indirect fired gas, industrial, and custom applications. Air curtains improve comfort and can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs. Powered Aire can perform energy savings and payback calculations for your specific projects' location.

Did you know that using AMCA certified air curtains eliminates the requirement for a vestibule on commercial buildings per the changes to the 2015 IECC code? Many of your architect partners may not be aware of this!

Air curtains are also available with ECM motor technology that can reach full speed in less than 1 second compared to the competition whose ECM solutions can take 6-7 seconds to reach full speed significantly reducing the effectiveness of the air curtain. These motors are also very efficient even in fractional horsepower sizes.

Greenheck Introduces Revit Content for Control and Life Safety Dampers

CAPS Revit Content
With the January 2017 release of CAPS 4.22 Revit downloads are available for control dampers (VCD series) and life safety dampers (FSD and SMD series). The Revit content includes the precise location, position, and overall assembly dimensions of externally mounted actuators.

The NFPA requires ample access to all operating FSD components. Utilizing the Revit content with accurate actuator locations will allow for the placement of access panels and doors in the design process. This will greatly reduce the field coordination that is often required by installing contractors.

To print the Revit content, save your CAPS file, click the print button next to the duplicate mark button, change the report type to Revit Model, select the marks you want Revit for, select OK.

Semco Pinnacle - Dual Wheel Primary Ventilation System for Low Dewpoint and Humidity Control

Pinnacle Semco
As building owners and engineers look to increase building energy efficiency and operating costs, Chilled Beam systems are often explored as an option to provide high energy efficiency while still putting value on indoor air quality and comfort of building occupants. Many of these projects are also pursuing green building certification through programs like the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. These designs often include more outdoor air than the minimum recommended by AHSRAE 62.1 standard. Therefore, designers considering the use of chilled beam systems in locations where peak cooling season conditions are above 64 degree dew point (90 grains) should look to incorporate energy efficient primary air systems with the capability of delivering air at dew points well below that of traditional chilled water systems (i.e. 54 degrees).

Utilizing the strengths of total energy recovery, conventional cooling technology, and a new class of desiccant product, the passive dehumidification wheel, SEMCO's Pinnacle unit manages 100% of a building's ventilation and indoor humidity load in a single package, responding to varying conditions on demand. It cools, heats, or dehumidifies as required, providing a steady stream of optimally pre-conditioned, high quality, comfortable air.

The dual wheel technology in the Pinnacle can provide outdoor air at a humidity content of 40 gr/lb utilizing standard cooling equipment. Providing very dry air using conventional cooling equipment has many advantages including a significant reduction of energy consumption and, therefore, cost. With very dry air, lower air flow quantities can handle far more latent load.


Key Advantages to using SEMCO Pinnacle PVS:

  • Increase in dehumidification and latent capacity while decreasing cooling capacity.
  • Increase in energy efficiency through decreased cooling and heating capacity.
  • Delivery of outdoor air with low humidity content results in a lower quantity of outdoor air required to handle space latent load.
  • Eliminates the need for regenerative heating source to achieve low dew points.

Ductsox Introduces Air Distribution Solutions for Indoor Growth Facilities

Growing FacilitiesWith marijuana being legalized throughout much of the country, cultivation facilities are providing engineers with unique design opportunities.

DuctSox Corporation, an industry leader for air dispersion solutions, has been in this market for many years, has developed several products for the plant growth market. Precise control of air movement through air permeable fabrics, laser cut orifices or linear vents and adjustable nozzles ensure a dispersion pattern appropriate for indoor growth of flowers, plants, vegetables and more.

Growing FacilityCompared to the metal alternative, flexible air permeable fabrics resist condensation and can be easily cleaned between growth cycles to ensure optimum growing conditions. Additionally, for greenhouse applications, fabrics may be up to 72% translucent. DuctSox provides solutions from an overhead location to create proper draft, under table supply for displacement dispersion or ensuring dry air near plant base - or even solutions for precise air movement in stability chambers for research enclosures. For your next indoor plant growth project, DuctSox has a solution.
