ClimateMaster Introduces New Line of Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems
ClimateMaster®, Inc., a leader in geothermal and water source heating and cooling, debuted the addition of a complete line of dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS) in capacities ranging from 6 to 40 tons at this year’s AHR Expo in Orlando, FL. These systems are responsible for bringing outdoor air into buildings, which is not only mandated by ASHRAE Standard 62 but also creates improved air quality for building occupants. DOAS units are the preferred solution because of their ability to dehumidify outdoor air and supply dry/neutral air to buildings.
The Ultimate Rooftop Solution for Fresh Air
While ClimateMaster is not new to the dedicated outdoor air systems market, the new DOAS line offers a flexible design platform that supports numerous applications including air-cooled heating, air-cooled heat pumping, water source heat pumping, and geothermal heat pumping. The specialized systems deliver superior efficiency, proven reliability, lower utility costs, and reduced service and maintenance costs. Key features include:
- High-efficiency scroll compressors, optimized heat transfer, and variable speed condenser fans with EC motors and modulating control that exceed ASHRAE 90.1 standards.
- Energy-saving, two-inch, double-wall cabinet containing R-13 insulation with a thermal break to minimize heat transfer and provide an effective moisture barrier throughout.
- Fully-integrated DDC controls provide an open protocol for BACnet, LonWorks, Modbus, and N2.
- Innovative and simple design with friction hinges and quarter-turn handles for entry into generously sized control and access compartments.
- Slide-out double-sloped stainless steel drain pan provides easy access to the energy recovery wheel.
“Expanding into the growing DOAS market not only provides ClimateMaster with an opportunity to capitalize on our 60-year legacy of water-source heat pumps but allows us to create a greater synergy between building engineers and architects who need the most energy-efficient technologies to meet tightening regulations on energy use,” said Todd Graff, ClimateMaster’s Chief Executive Officer. “Delivering 100% outside air solutions that are both flexible and affordable elevates our position with key industry partners.”
