VENTUS 2016 air handling unit – excellence born out of experience
Reliability, durability, energy saving, multi-functionality, stability of structure, precise operation as well as convenient and simple control – these are the features that are expected from air handling units working at modern and often quite demanding buildings.
Having regard to these features, VTS presents the VENTUS 2016 air handling unit – the effect of many years of experience and gaining specialist knowledge in building and operating air handling units. In order to meet the customers’ expectations, we have put a lot of effort to improve functionality and efficiency and to incorporate a range of new special functions.
Reliable and tight structure
The VENTUS 2016 is built of polyurethane panels covered with Aluzinc sheet (AZ 150). Additionally, the structure is reinforced with aluminium columns, fan section steel cage and the supporting steel frames on which the entire unit stands.
Depending on the size of the unit, two frame variants are available: Z profile (VENTUS 21-150 AHU) and C profile (VENTUS 180-650 AHU). The frames have a special section connection system and stand on adjustable feet that enable levelling at the installation site.
A new feature introduced in the VENTUS air handling unit is the SMART HINGE system. This solution, patented by VTS, combines the functions of a handle and a hinge. It enables quick and convenient opening and closing of the inspection panel. Additionally, the smart hinge prevents breaking the seal while opening the panel.
Another significant feature is sealing of the VENTUS 2016 air handling units. The new VENTUS unit is fitted with fin seals that guarantee labyrinth sealing and thermal lining that eliminates thermal break.
The new VENTUS air handling unit may be equipped with one of 4 optional control systems that meet both simple and most advanced demands of the customers and provide: control of air quality parameters (CO2, humidity, etc.), cascade temperature control with power-saving operation modes, constant air volume (CAV) or constant air pressure (VAV) control, mixing box external signal control and protective functions (heater freezing protection, heat recovery module icing protection, fan motor overload protection, etc.). Additionally, in case of buildings with special requirements, it is possible to perform special functions, such as backup fans control, etc.
The automatic system of the VENTUS air handling unit is capable of real-time control of the water heater and cooler as well as the electric heater and the freon cooler. The electric heater is controlled by phase power control, which eliminates occurrence of surge currents. In case of the freon cooler, the AHU signal controls the operation of the external cold source (condensing unit).
The VENTUS air handling unit may be equipped with a convenient HMI panel which enables adjustment of air parameters settings and viewing of many other AHU operating parameters. Remote monitoring and diagnostics of AHU operation through the Internet is possible, which enables to solve many technical problems without the necessity to call the service team.
Safety of use
Fan section panels are equipped with special protections preventing accidental opening.
Additionally, the air handling units are equipped with reed switch that trigger electronic stop of the motor then the panel is opened, as well as steel safety barriers of the fan units which guarantee safety when fans are operating.
