Modine Manufacturing Company, a leader in technology in the HVAC industry, has announced advanced energy recovery technology from pioneering manufacturer Airxchange is now available in the Modine Atherion Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS).
The Modine Atherion DOAS uses Airxchange energy recovery technology to deliver efficient high performance to schools, offices, hotels and other facilities.
The Atherion DOAS with energy recovery wheels from Airxchange, the market leader for innovative, reliable and long-lasting energy recovery ventilation technology, optimizes air quality and reduces energy costs for hotels, schools, offices, manufacturing plants and other facilities.
"Recent circumstances have demonstrated that indoor air quality is a critical issue for facilities managers," said Kimberly Raduenz, Marketing Communications Manager for Modine. "Energy recovery is one of the most effective technologies for increasing ventilation rates for maintaining a safe and healthy indoor environment while delivering outstanding energy efficiency and heating and cooling performance. Airxchange has proven it is the true leader in energy recovery, and with the new Modine Atherion DOAS with Airxchange energy recovery wheels, two of the most trusted brands in HVAC are offering remarkable performance and value."
The energy recovery system reduces operating costs by recycling energy from exhaust air to preheat or precool incoming fresh air. The Airxchange energy recovery wheels included in the Atherion DOAS are aluminum total energy recovery wheels with a 3Å (angstrom) molecular sieve desiccant. These wheels can withstand harsh environmental conditions while the 3Å MS desiccant maximizes latent energy transfer in the vapor phase while minimizing the transfer of larger organic compounds. The Exhaust Air Transfer Ratio is typically 3% or less.
