RevolutionAire Inc., of Knoxville, Tenn., a North American manufacturer of indoor air quality (IAQ) equipment, introduces the Slimline Series, the HVAC industry’s first variable refrigerant flow (VRF) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV) technology combined in a unit ventilator system configuration. The Slimline is designed for new construction and unit ventilator retrofits of schools, hospitals, hotels and other commercial facilities.
Besides pinpoint humidity and temperature control, the Slimline’s proprietary onboard microprocessor command center, along with onboard and room remote sensors, monitor and control for CO2, particulates and volatile organic compounds (VOC) for a healthy breathing environment. An optional onboard zero-ozone, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) system can disinfect return air biological contaminants, such as cold viruses, mold, bacteria and influenza, which can help school districts surpass federal incentive goals for student attendance and achievement tests. MERV 8 particulate media filters are standard; however a MERV 11 option is available with automatic airflow modifications activated by the command center’s static pressure control function.
