Daikin McQuay Announces Energy Recovery Wheel Option for RebelTM Rooftop
Recovers Approximately 75 Percent of Energy
MINNEAPOLIS – December 18, 2012 – Daikin McQuay introduces a new Energy Recovery Wheel option for Rebel, the most energy efficient rooftop unit on the market. Rebel rooftop units already achieve IEER’s as high as 20.6 without energy recovery and this new energy recovery option makes it even more efficient, especially for applications requiring large amounts of ventilated air.
The energy recovery wheel option recovers approximately 75 percent of energy from the exhaust air stream. As the wheel rotates, outside air is drawn across one-half of the wheel while exhaust air is drawn across the other half, transferring sensible and latent energy between the ventilation and exhaust air streams. Free heat and humidity are recovered during winter months while free cooling and dehumidification occurs during the summer months. Easy, slide-out accessibility to the wheel is provided, simplifying service and cleaning for long-term, efficient wheel operation.
“As the leader in applied rooftop units, we are continuing to develop products that advance energy efficiency and provide optimal comfort,” said Skip Ernst, marketing manager at Daikin McQuay. “Adding an energy recovery wheel to this already revolutionary product helps the end user by providing additional energy savings in all seasons.”
Rebel with energy recovery wheel exceeds ASHRAE Standard 90.1 requirements for energy recovery. It is ideal for any climate, but the most energy savings can be seen in those with varying degrees of humidity.
Daikin McQuay energy recovery systems are provided as a one-piece, factory-installed and tested package that eliminates field coordination and leakage problems associated with field installation. The outdoor and exhaust air flows are arranged in counter-flow for better efficiency and to reduce field cleaning requirements. Exhaust contaminants cannot enter the ventilation air because the exhaust air static pressure is always greater than the ventilation air static pressure. Rebel with energy recovery wheel option includes an exhaust fan and is available in 100 percent dedicated outdoor air or economizer configurations. Frost protection, bypass dampers and purge options are also available.
