BARKELL AIR HANDLING UNITS (Part of Airedale International)
Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery Units (MVHRU) are designed to provide very specific functions within the HVAC system:
Ventilation - fresh air for occupants and dilution of pollutants (bio-effluents (CO2, water vapours), building and system emissions)
Fine filtration – purify air in order to achieve acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ) in the ventilated spaces
Heat recovery – recover waste heat from the building while exhausting contaminated air
Heating and/or cooling (optional) – provide tempered air for space heating/cooling devices (fan coils, VAV boxes, chilled beams, etc)
This course is aimed at giving those involved in the HVAC supply chain an introduction to MVHR, including key functions and applications, component parts and their main features and an understanding of current legislation and performance standards.
