VORTICE has recently worked with Quartz Electrical and Mechanical Services to install an impressive heat recovery air handling unit at Middlesbrough College. The RXH/Hi is an integrated refrigerant circuit heat recovery unit, ensuring that Middlesbrough College not only has good indoor air quality, but it also reaps the benefits of heat recovery thereby reducing the energy costs and the C02 footprint. The unit was installed in a new extension to the college creating a state-of-the-art digital IT centre.
For buildings that require air exchange and are not equipped with dedicated air conditioning systems, the installation of these RXH/Hi units allows the introduction of primary air at a controlled temperature without disturbing the internal conditions in the occupied spaces, this makes it unnecessary to use additional systems to heat or cool the incoming primary air. On new installations the complete air exchange requirement is carried out, allowing a reduction in the size of the main air conditioning system. The unit also benefits from air cooling which can be adjusted in the summer or winter, ensuring that the unit operates at maximum efficiency.
Paul Gunner Sales Director of VORTICE commented
“We enjoyed working with Quartz and Middlesbrough College to ensure the best and most competitive solution for their requirements. They are extremely happy with the result and we are looking forward to helping them further with additional ventilation systems.”
