Model PVe heat-recovery units are designed to recover up to 60 percent of the sensible energy in exhaust air and return it to supply air. The cross-flow plate-exchanger units use an aluminum core to recover only sensible energy, with low leakage and no moving parts. Features include stainless-steel drain pans, belt-drive blowers with adjustable pulleys, a pitched roof, and integral lifting points and lift locations. Useful for applications that involve dirtier air, such as garages, welding shops/facilities, and areas with drier climates, the units' performance ranges from 1,000 to 6,000 cfm. Visit www.greenheck.com for more information.
A net-zero solution for chilled-water, condenser-water, and boiler applications in commercial buildings, the multistage CR-H end-suction pump can save up to 80 percent of energy and 50 percent of energy costs. The pump requires no piping and volute bolting modifications, and its cartridge seals can be replaced without pump removal, disassembly, or pump-to-motor alignment.
