UWC and UWCH

  • The SEMCO Unitary Wheel Cassette (UWC) Series, a sensible and latent energy recovery aluminum desiccant wheel, is designed and packaged as the HVAC industry’s first drop-in replacement most OEM wheels used by packaged rooftop unit manufacturers.

    The UWC Series’ 3-3/4-inch-wide (100-mm) wheels feature a fast-acting, corrosion-resistant, proprietary desiccant that’s applied to a sturdy, but lightweight all-aluminum wheel substrate. The honeycomb matrix’s fluted opening design efficiently produces maximum latent and sensible air-to-air heat transfer, but generates up to 50-percent less HVAC system static pressure than other wheels.

    Besides assisting buildings in surpassing ASHRAE 90.1 building energy compliance, the aluminum wheels also have longer life cycles and vastly less periodic maintenance requirements than non-aluminum wheels and can withstand temperatures of up to 180°F.
