New concept from Fläkt Woods
Fläkt Woods has launched a remarkable new concept in chilled beam design. The new WEGA system saves energy normally wasted in ventilating unoccupied spaces or in over-cooling the rooms, by using demand controlled ventilation.
WEGA uses a motorised energy control function allowing users to reduce the energy consumption. Variable air volume optimises the ventilation to suit the average occupancy rate which varies between 35 and 55% during normal office hours.
Assuming that the ventilation system has been designed according to peak load, there are potential savings from demand controlled ventilation, compared to the constant air volume system. This directly impacts the energy consumption of the fan with up to a 60% saving.
With WEGA the indoor comfort for the occupants is always guaranteed and the ventilation is adapted to the real cooling capacity needs, while energy consumption is significantly reduced.
The new series is available in two capacity types, for standard cooling requirements the ultra flexible WEGA Standard can be specified and where cooling demand overrides ultimate flexibility requirements, WEGA Power should be specified, with an outstanding 25% extra cooling capacity over standard beams.
