3-Ton Variable-Refrigerant Packaged Heat Pump
Friedrich now offers its VRP (variable-refrigerant packaged) heat pump system in a larger three-ton size. With FreshAire technology, the unit features patents-pending make-up air, MERV-8 air filtration and humidity control capabilities that include onboard sensors that monitor and adjust compressor speeds to enhance dehumidification. The heat pump offers the convenience and maintenance advantages of a closet-mounted, single-packaged unit without the cost or complexity of a large central air system. Designed for multi-family and other light-commercial applications.

205UCNY Ductile Iron Gate Valve
The 205UCNY ductile iron gate valve from Matco-Norca comes with a resilient wedge, fusion-bonded, Chicago/NYC body spec that is AWWA C515-15- and AWWA C550-compliant. U.L.-listed and F.M-approved, the epoxy-coated valve has flanged ends, and an EPDM gasket and O-ring. It is available is seven sizes ranging from 2 1/2” up to 12”.
SmartPlus-E ECM Hot Water Recirculation
The SmartPlus-E ECM hot water recirculation from Taco is a high-efficiency domestic hot water recirculation system. It pairs a 006e3 hECM hot water circulator with the intelligence of the Smart Plug instant Hot water control. The circulator uses up to 85% less electricity than a conventional circulator, and the SmartPlug learns hot water usage patterns and delivers hot water when it’s needed. The circulator has a dial to select from three performance curves to best match the application, and a setting selection guide to make the choice simple.

Series e-HSC Double-Suction Centrifugal Pump
Xylem’s Bell & Gossett introduces the Series e-HSC, its new line of double-suction centrifugal pumps designed specifically for HVAC systems with up to 90 model options. A new volute design — either single or dual-volute based on the hydraulic constraints — extends bearing life and reduces shaft deflection within the preferred operating range of the pump. The unit is equipped with mechanical seals customized for HVAC applications that support a variety of installations regardless of incoming pressure. Casings are available in cast iron or ductile iron, along with standard option materials for the impeller, shaft and wear rings.

Aerostar HEPA Bolt-Seal Housing
The Aerostar HEPA bolt-seal housing from Filtration Group is a multistage unit designed to hold HEPA filters in 99.97 percent and 99.99 percent efficiency at 0.3-micron size particles with a gasket. An optional pre-filter section is available to accommodate 2-in. or 4-in. pre-filters. Standard housing depth is 26 1/4 in. The housing is constructed with 14 gauge-galvanized steel and components are permanently fastened for added strength. It is fully seam-welded with a broken channel for the filters instead of an aluminum extrusion.
Commercial Series APCO Rack System
Fresh-Aire UV introduces its Commercial Series APCO gas-phase air purification technology and tubular rack system. APCO cells contain activated carbon infused with titanium dioxide, which reacts with UVC light to capture and catalyzes odor-causing and potentially toxic volatile organic compounds. Proper use of the system can reduce the amount of outside air needed for ventilation according to ASHRAE Standard 62.1. Choose normal-output lamps for surface and air treatment or optional high-output lamps for intensive air treatment. Features include 110-277 VAC power supply and mounting with standard 1/2-in. EMT tubing.
Automatic Balancing Dampers
Greenheck introduces a new model ABD pressure independent automatic balancing damper that maintains a constant airflow by adjusting to changes in system pressure. Designed for use in both supply and exhaust applications, the ABD’s damper blade automatically adjusts position to account for changing pressures in the duct work. Constructed of antimicrobial plastic to inhibit microbial growth, model ABD is UL2043 classified for flame spread and smoke development. The damper is available with a flanged grille mounting box (model ABD-GM) or with a square to round transition (model ABD-T).

PureAir S Air Purification System
Lennox introduces the PureAir S whole-home/building air purification system, which removes 99.9 percent of all airborne particles — such as pollen, dust and pet dander — as well as more than 90 percent of viruses, such as MRSA, flu and cold. It also removes and destroys 50 percent of household odors and chemical vapors in a 24-hour period. It reads the life of both the CarbonClean 16 media filter and the purifier, and displays both from zero to 100 percent on the iComfort S30 ultra smart thermostat screen.
nanoeX Air Purification Technology
Panasonic launches nanoeX, its advanced air purification solution. Built into the EXTERIOS XE ductless heat pump system, it provides a cleaner, fresher indoor environment by identifying harmful pollutants such as allergens, bacteria and odors, and neutralizing them with state-of-the-art air purification technology.
Combination VRF/ERV Unit Ventilator System
RevolutionAire introduces the Slimline Series, a variable refrigerant flow and energy recovery ventilation technology combined in a unit ventilator system configuration. Besides pinpoint humidity and temperature control, the unit’s proprietary onboard microprocessor command center, along with onboard and room remote sensors, monitor and control for CO2, particulates and volatile organic compounds. The unit ranges from 1 1/2 to 4.5 tons, 600 to 1,800 CFMs and features a 32”-high, 20”-deep, high-quality stainless-steel or powder-coated cabinet in either a 94” or 104” length.
REME HALO In-Duct Air Purifier
The REME HALO from RGF was designed to eliminate sick building syndrome risks by reducing odors and air pollutants: particulates, microbial and gases. It uses RGF’s proprietary reflective electromagnetic energy technology. Installed into the supply plenum of an existing air conditioning or heating system air ducts, it produces hydro-peroxide plasma that is distributed through the air handler, through the duct system and into the conditioned living space. In addition, the charged plasma induces particles to coagulate or stick together, making them bigger and easier for a filter to catch.

SE400E, SE800E Smoke Eliminators
Trion’s SE400E and SE800E smoke eliminator are commercial air purifiers specifically designed to remove airborne pollutants such as tobacco smoke, dust, pollen and mold spores. They are designed to be mounted onto a solid ceiling, semi-recessed into a suspended ceiling or wall-mounted. They utilize the principle of electrostatic precipitation, where air is drawn into the intake, through the metal pre-filter, which traps lint and large dust particles. The remaining particles pass into a strong electrical field where the particles receive an electric charge and are collected by another series of plates.
