    FläktGroup SEMCO Announces New Wheel Cassette Options

    Columbia, Mo. – Today, FläktGroup® SEMCOTM, manufacturer of the highest-performing energy recovery wheel on the market, has expanded its drop-in replacement unitary wheel cassette (UWC) offerings. First, the company has added two new wheel diameters–78 and 84 inch–to its current UWC line, now titled–the SEMCO Classic. The expanded line now features wheels with diameters ranging from 25 to 84 inches and are ideal for building applications needing 300 to about 17,000 CFM. In addition, FläktGroup SEMCO has launched a new series–the SEMCO Cross Cassette–which makes the outstanding SEMCO wheel performance available to a new set of customers who require alternative cartridge dimensions to fit their units. This line is offered in two depths 4 and 6 inches and features diameters ranging from 25 to 108 inches. The new line is ideal for building applications needing 300 to about 32,000 CFM. Both the SEMCO Classic and the SEMCO Cross Cassette lines can be used as replacement cartridges and in new units. These additions significantly expand SEMCO’s UWC line–offering new and different dimensions–making the FläktGroup SEMCO wheel offerings one of the broadest available in the HVAC industry today.

    “We are excited to be launching these new wheel products,” said Trevor Young, Chief Executive Officer of FläktGroup SEMCO. “Expanding our SEMCO Classic Cassette line provides some additional sizes that our current customers have been requesting for quite some time. And the new SEMCO Cross Cassette series allow us to introduce our industry-leading wheel products to a whole new set of customers–providing them a very high-performance alternative where there currently isn’t one available.”

    Both the SEMCO Classic Cassette and the SEMCO Cross Cassette series are industry-leading indoor air quality products that maximize energy recovery while minimizing desiccant cross contamination. These wheels pre-cool and dehumidify the outdoor air during the cooling season and preheat and humidify the outdoor air during the heating season.

    Both lines feature a fast-acting, corrosion-resistant, proprietary desiccant with a sturdy, but lightweight all-aluminum wheel substrate. Both are extremely easy to install. The wheels 52” or larger are lighter and easier to handle than the same-size polymer wheels made by competitors. All are fully-assembled and packaged as plug-and-play cassettes that include an industrial-duty gear motor, corrosion-resistant rotor, and industrial-grade link drive belt. These wheels have a long-life expectancy and require little maintenance which is a stark contrast to competitors’ products– saving owners time and money.
