2. Introduction
Midea have been manufacturing air handling units throughout the world for a couple of years. Midea participated in compilation of China Standard about central-station air handling units. This proven abundant experience enables us to develop a world class air handling unit; the 3rd generation of Modular Air Handling Unit (MAHU) is a combination of the elements as follow:

The Midea MAHU meet the demands for improved indoor air quality, low sound, high operating efficiency and smaller mechanical rooms require a better product for today’s air handler market. The MAHU’s construction provides unequaled thermal efficiencies and low leak rates. In addition, the MAHU offers tremendous flexibility in sizing, component options, and unit arrangements to meet the indoor air quality, operating efficiency, sound and installation requirements for today’s extensive commercial and custom markets. Midea combines comprehensive performance certifications with thorough laboratory testing and manufacturing methods. Together, these elements assure that each MAHU operates predictably and reliably throughout the life of the unit.

By virtue of its unique frameless design, the Midea MAHU offers tremendous flexibility. Numerous section and component options, and the ability to arrange components in whatever arrangement is required, allow to be customized to the requirements of each job, without expensive field modifications. Finally, the MAHU can be shipped as a completely assembled unit, in modules or by component sections that require smaller sections for passage through the building.

The Midea MAHU is designed to provide easy access to interior components for routine maintenance and service. The easy-to-move panels and access doors of the units provide complete access to the unit interior and components.

Selection software
To help the customer easily define their product requirements, a user-friendly software selection program is provided. The program leads the user through the selection process by pertinent input data for all components required. Component sections are selected by placing them on a configuration screen (Figure 4). Once the unit layout is defined, the options and accessories are identified. The program gives immediate feedback regarding fan and coil selection, offering a choice of many different options based on the performance inputs. Once final component selections

have been made, the program provides all output needed for specification, including unit specification, dimension drawings, weights, fan curves, etc.

Wide usage
The Midea MAHU can be widely used in hotels, restaurants, factories, hospitals, airport, railway stations, exhibition halls, office buildings, shopping centers, laboratories and other central air-conditioning systems.

Base frame
Unit sections are mounted on galvanized steel or channel steel base frame for ease of shipment and handling. The frames provide holes for section connection, and holes for fork-lift truck. There is a guard rail cross the bottom in the holes to prevent unit damage by trucks. The base frame can be used in lieu of concrete plinths or other additional bases that are used on site. However, for high static pressure application, additional concrete plinths or other additional bases are required at site to raise the MAHU for drain pan’s U-trap.


Double skin panel
The outer skin is color-coated steel sheet that is resistant to scratch and nicks and shall allow for easy cleaning. The inner skin is galvanized steel sheet. The panels are 50mm thick double skin type with injected polyurethane foam insulation. The panel insulation shall not absorb moisture and is rot resistant. The insulation material shall be totally enclosed in the panel to avoid any possibility of insulation being exposed to air stream. The panel insulation shall have a thermal conductivity value of 0.03W/m2K. The panel is sturdy and, in its standard design, unit sections of the same width can be stacked on the top of one another, without the need of additional reinforcement.

Drain pan
