Combi Cooler Integrated System Energy efcient cooling

The unique, straightforward and energy efcient method of generating cooling capacity for a chilled beam system
An integrated system comprising of an ultra-compact AHU installation precisely matched to the requirements of roommounted Chilled Beams, selected from a comprehensive range of styles and sizes. Combi-Cooler technology removes the need for expensive and spaceconsuming external condenser units, whilst integrated Room Controllers monitor temperature and provide an adjustable set point and seamless connection to the BMS.

The Combi Cooler saves up to 39% energy

Flkt Woods Combi Cooler provides completely new opportunities when planning and specifying cooling systems. The Combi Cooler module can be integrated and mounted directly into the air handling unit. It is particularly suitable for use together with chilled beam systems. Cooling can be provided using chilled beams, fancoils or ceiling-mounted cassette chilled beams. Because the Combi Cooler replaces other components, such as liquid coolers and external condensers, the unit takes up little space. The Combi Cooler is integrated into the air handling unit so all components are located in the plant room, avoiding outdoor or roof installation. Because the appearance of a building is not changed, renovation work is easier, and noisy condenser fans are not necessary. Climate change and energy consumption are our shared responsibility. For many years, product development at Flkt Woods has aimed at constantly improving energy efciency and indoor air quality. This i integrated system represents a good example of our success. In business and ofce spaces, lighting, apparatus and people all represent a heat load. So for an even and comfortable room temperature of 2124C, the need for energy for cooling is greater than that for energy for heating. Supplementary cooling is necessary; and this can be achieved very economically using the Combi Cooler.

Saving energy, money and the environment with Flkt Woods

Air handling units

Our comprehensive Air Handling Unit offering allows us to deliver optimised solutions for any customer. Our R&D work focuses on reducing energy consumption and creating factory complete air handling system solutions with controls. Our experience in the marine, off-shore, pharmaceutical and hospital markets makes us the perfect partner for such applications.

Chilled beams eams

In systems with Chilled Beams, the indoor air is cooled by means of cold water. Chilled beams create a onment by stable and comfortable environment ed supplying draught free cooling. By using Chilled Beams up to 75% of the total cooling capacity will be handled by the water. Apart from the energy saving it also means less ductwork for air, smaller air handling units and lower noise.

Combi Cooler system benets

Fan coils
Fan coils are most commonly used in areas where individual room control is essential, such as hotels, private and public ofce buildings, hospitals and schools. Flkt Woods can offer classic, cassette and satellite fan-coils.

Guaranteed system performance Combi Coolers

The Combi Cooler, when integrated in the air handling unit, avoids separate air coolers and condensing units. It therefore offers a small footprint and is particularly suitable for use together with chilled beams.

Fitted liquid cooler Heating and cooling coil integrated into the supply air One module, integrated into the air handling unit Optimised for use with chilled beam systems Less installation work indoors and no installation work outdoors Greater operating reliability because all components are designed and sized to work together Easy commissioning as the unit is factory tested Reduces the need for space in the plant room because the combi cooler only has one cooling coil

Flkt Woods offers a wide range of integrated control solutions for air handling and indoor climate systems. Factory mounted an pre-wired controls will reduce installation time and simplify on-site logistics. Preprogrammed and factory tested control applications based on Flkt Woods extensive experience also means a fast commissioning process and will secure a reliable and energy efcient operation of the system. Based on support for open standard communication protocols, integration to a building management system can easily be carried out by an independent system integrator.

No liquid cooler to install in the plant room The air conditioning unit is only marginally longer despite all the cooling equipment being built-in to it No condensers on the roof to detract from the appearance of the building The perfect solution when refurbishing old buildings Energy efcient solution

What makes the Combi Cooler so energy efcient?

1) The supply air to the air handling unit is only cooled to 18C instead of the 15C in traditional systems. This avoids energy-intensive condensation. Because the supply air temperature is slightly higher, areas such as empty meeting rooms with no heat load, maintain a comfortable temperature, and unnecessary cooling is avoided. Electricity consumption is reduced by 14% (including the supplementary power used by the circuit for the chilled beams). 2) Vigorous subcooling of the refrigerant and a higher evaporation temperature reduce the energy required by 29%. The total energy saving is: 0 = 39% 100 - (0,71 x 0,86) x 100

Cooling for supply air and chilled beams

In Normal Running mode, SV2 will adjust the water supplied to the Chilled Beams to 15C.

Cooling and heating at the same time

Combi Cooler can deliver cold water to the chilled beam and heating to the supply air coil at the same time. The supply air coil gets the heat from an inbuilt plate heat exchanger in the main water circuit.

In Condense Risk mode, the water temperature is increased to 17C, eliminating the risk of condensation. More cooling power can therefore be used in the supply air coil where it can be used without limitation.

The total available cooling power will be distributed in the most appropriate way to avoid condensation whilst maintaining best possible comfort conditions.
