Air-Intake-Filter-Screen Technology Helps Optimize AHU Performance

May 2008
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;May2008, Vol. 80 Issue 5, p42
The article discusses the application of air-intake-filter-screen technology which is designed and engineered by Air Solution Co. to help optimize air-handling units (AUHs) and use on high-volume/high-velocity HVAC and cooling-tower systems. The system is designed to keep and stop snow and airborne debris at its point of entry. In addition, the screens stopped cottonwood seed and other matter from prematurely fouling the pre-filters during spring, summer and fall seasons.
