    FläktGroup® SEMCOTM Announces the Elite Series

    FläktGroup® SEMCOTM has released the first phase of the SEMCO Elite Series, a preconditioner. This preconditioner features the same certified energy recovery performance for which FläktGroup SEMCO is renowned. An energy recovery system, like the Elite Series, uses the cold or hot air contained in the return air stream to precondition the outdoor air being brought into the building. Using this existing return air to treat the new incoming air, reduces the amount of energy required to condition the space and unlike many competitors, the Elite Series system is designed to comply with ASHRAE 62.1 standard which ensures the highest indoor air quality —specifically, the Elite Series complies with the required distance between outdoor and exhaust airstreams.

    The Elite Series preconditioner can be used to treat outdoor air for an existing conventional air handling system, or as part of an integrated system, which provides total space air treatment. The Elite Series energy recovery system can be connected directly to one unit or several in order to ensure that there is always at least some amount of controlled fresh air at all times.

    The Elite Series preconditioner contains the industry leading SEMCO Unitary Wheel Cassette (UWC). The UWC features true fluted media with laminar flow and a patented molecular-sieve desiccant that limits the transfer of exhaust air pollutants. Along with this desiccant, the preconditioner’s wheel includes a purge section designed to allow the strategic leakage of unconditioned outdoor air into the return airstream. This “purge airflow,” driven by system static pressures around the recovery wheel, “flushes” the contaminated air that is otherwise carried over to the supply air back into the contaminated airstream and is exhausted from the building. This makes the Elite Series ideal for a number of applications including schools, offices, dormitories, nursing homes, and casinos.
