Berner Energy Recovery Introduces Water Source Heat Pump Option on TRICOIL® Dehumidifying Outside Air HVAC Units
January 29, 2008
Berner Energy Recovery Inc., New Castle, Pa., has introduced a water source condenser/heat pump (WSHP) option as part of its line of 100-percent outside air TRICOIL® and desiccant energy recovery ventilation systems primarily used in for schools, universities, office buildings, hospitals, hotels and other commercial facilities utilizing geothermal HVAC technology.
Combining BERI's TRICOIL recuperative loop process with the simplicity and efficiency of WSHP technology offers one of the most energy-efficient designs for any dehumidifying outside air system (DOAS). TRICOIL technology reduces outside air tonnage requirements to about 33-percent of conventional systems, which is similar to that of a re-circulated air system.
The BERI line offers mechanical engineers and designers customized energy recovery equipment at non-custom pricing with options such as an enthalpy wheel, cooling/heating coils, filters, louvers/dampers, variable frequency drives, modular design and now the WSHP. Like all other modules, the WSHP is factory piped, charged, and packaged as one turnkey unit with single source responsibility.
Other features of BERI energy recovery equipment include:
o Sizes range from 1,500 to 22,000-cfm or in larger custom sizes up to 45,000-cfm.
o Applicable for new construction as well as retrofits.
o Smallest and lightest footprint in the industry.
o Lower tonnages result in reduced horsepower, electrical amp draws, and sound levels.
o Monitoring/Controlling is compatible with most building automation system protocols or possible as a stand alone system.
o Modularization allows for access through standard doorways.
BERI is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and its equipment can help a building project qualify for LEED credits.
