American Aldes Introduces Selection Software for its line of Energy Recovery Equipment

Aldes Software
Buckley Associates has been providing heat and energy recovery ventilation solutions for medium to large applications for many years. Buckley now represents American Aldes in order to better provide our customers with a complete energy recovery line servicing all market needs. American Aldes offers the most advanced HRV and ERV units designed and built to meet any application, and to meet ASHRAE 62 or LEED platinum certification. Aldes is the most attractive small volume energy recovery unit due to its ability to be customizable while remaining cost competitive.

Aldes provides a wide range of units including commercial HRV’s and ERV’s from 250 to 4,500 CFM and extremely customizable units up to 10,000 CFM. Their standard commercial series has recently added a high-latent-transfer enthalpy core, EC Motors, and additional frost control and heating options. These new features increase the efficiencies while keeping the units cost-competitive. Aldes also offers an indoor and outdoor low profile unit with a plate exchanger for commercial projects that are spatially or architecturally constrained. These units have been installed in commercial and medical offices, hotels, hospitals, restaurants, retail stores, single home residences, apartment complexes and more. Engineers can specify exactly what they need for each project without being concerned about not meeting project requirements.

The selection software, Selector Aeromatic, can be downloaded from the Aldes website and assists in complete unit selection from sizing and design conditions to core material, controls, and accessories. The software allows engineers to pick their own units and export them to Buckley for review and quick pricing as well as to Excel to create schedules.

Aldes shows its superiority over other energy recovery systems in its core; while other manufacturers use paper cores, Aldes uses a Polypropylene core that is strong and can be washed down with a hose. The five different core options make these units well suited to the New England winter and summer for either sensible heat recovery or sensible and latent recovery.

Please contact us for assistance in specifying American Aldes heat and energy recovery ventilators or for help downloading the selection software.

Holiday Inn Chooses AirMaid to Remove Grease and Odor

Airmaid Video
The restaurant kitchen at the Holiday Inn Civic Center in San Francisco had multiple problems with its existing pollution control unit including high use of consumables, filthy grease filter cabinets and a fan that was shaking itself to pieces.

When looking into different solutions, the local sales representative recommended a new technology to the project engineers for mitigating grease and odors using ozone – AirMaid by Interzon of Stockholm, Sweden.

In March of this year, after installing a new axial fan the new ozone generators were easily integrated into the existing ductwork, even with tight space requirements above the inner ceiling.

Everyone involved is very satisfied with the results Ron Tinkey of City Mechanical was responsible for the installation: “We are all excited about this innovative approach to pollution control on kitchen exhaust and other applications. We have installed several of the earlier pollution control units of massive proportions with extensive structural requirements to support those 16’ giants above the ceilings.”

Q-Duct Outdoor Duct System
The AirMaid ozone generators have now been running for over two months and the results are impressive. Ron Tinkey, who has seen thousands of ducts, keeps it simple: “The inside of the duct is cleaner than the outside!“

Andy Earle, Chief Engineer of The Holiday Inn noticed results from a different perspective: “We feel that there is less grease buildup on the glass windows and sliding glass doors above the kitchen exhaust outlet.”

Toby Lee, Project Manager of MHC Engineers had this to say about their choice of AirMaid: “The existing kitchen ventilation system upgrade at Holiday Inn, Civic Center is a challenge with limited available ceiling space for equipment and compressed kitchen shutdown schedule. AirMaid ozone generator proves to be the most practical and effective solution in terms of cost and performance.”

The market for AirMaid is growing with several installations complete in Boston, Toronto, and Vancouver.
