ASCENDANT

  • ASCENDANT is a conventional cooling, active desiccant hybrid system, performance optimized to deliver and control low dew point air while minimizing energy input. A highly efficient system, ASCENDANT delivers low dew points (down to 20°F) while minimizing the tons of cooling input. ASCENDANT operates with 25% to 50% less energy cost than conventional refrigeration-based dehumidification systems.


    The ASCENDANT Series is ideal for hospital operating rooms, archival and dry storage, hotel/condo buildings, and other applications requiring low dew point temperatures and supply air humidity levels as low as 15 grains. ASCENDANT operates without the need for exhaust heat recovery, a feature making it ideal for applications requiring 100-percent outdoor air when exhaust air is unavailable for collection. ASCENDANT affirms SEMCO’s goal of delivering the best indoor air quality and performance, while maximizing energy efficiency.


    ASCENDANT performance specifications help building systems surpass ASHRAE 90.1 building energy, ASHRAE 170 ventilation and ASHRAE 62.1 indoor air quality (IAQ) standards. ASCENDANT was created to allow ideal space temperature and humidity control while enhancing indoor air quality, comfort, and safety. SEMCO challenges customers not to compromise occupant comfort and safety, ASHRAE specifications, or energy efficiency. With ASCENDANT, you can truly have it all.
