INDUSTRIAL BLOWERS CO.

NEWS

Tenderall Co. makes two primary gas-fired AHU types: direct gas-fired and indirect gas-fired air handlers.

DIRECT GAS-FIRED AHU

A direct gas-fired AHU has a gas burner installed directly in the outside makeup-air stream. The products of combustion (carbon dioxide [CO2], carbon monoxide [CO], nitrogen dioxide [NO2]) are discharged directly into the makeup air stream and supplied to the building area.

INDIRECT GAS-FIRED AHU

An indirect gas-fired AHU has a sealed combustion chamber where all products of combustion are discharged through a flue to the outside environment and no products of combustion are discharged within the make-up air supplied to the building. Such airhandler also frequently is utilized for recirculating-air applications.

DIRECT-GAS-FIRED-AHU COMPONENTS

Though simple in principle of operation, direct gas-fired AHUs have sophisticated burner-control systems. AHUs sizes range from 1,000 cfm with a heating capacity of 80,000 Btuh to 100,000 cfm with a heating capacity of 15 million Btuh. Direct-gas-fired-AHU components usually include housings, supply fans, outside air intake hoods, intake dampers, filters and burners.

AHU HOUSINGS

AHU housings are made of galvanized or aluminized steel. Access panels are provided to access dampers, filters, burners, and fans / motors. AHUs located outside are provided with a sloped roof and standing seam joints.

SUPPLY FANS

Fans typically are double-width double-inlet (DWDI) with forward-curved or backward-inclined blades. Fans can come with open drip-proof (ODP) or totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) motors. The most typical external static pressure in the 2- to 3-in.-wg range. Because most outside istalled air handling units can operate  below 0°F, fan motors and bearings are rated to handle lower temperatures. For applications that require supply-air temperatures higher than 110°F, the motors and fan bearings are rated for maximum design operating temperatures when placed in draw-through configurations.

INTAKE DAMPERS AND HOODS

Outside air intake hoods or weather hoods are designed for an installation specific location and usually provided with bird screens. Outside-air intake isolation dampers are furnished to prevent cold air from dropping through a unit into a warm building and warm air from escaping through a unit during winter months, when it is not in operation. Low-leakage parallel blade isolation dampers are most standard. The fan discharge is located at the opposite to isolation-damper position.

FILTERS

A filter cabinet normally has 30/30 filters in a V-bank configuration to increase filter area and reduce static-pressure drop across the filters. Higher-efficiency filters are used on application.

BURNERS

A burner consists of a cast-iron or aluminum pipe assembly with drilled gas orifices. The fuel-air mixing is controlled by perforated stainless-steel baffles attached to the pipe assembly. The burner can be placed in the outside airstream or in the outside / return mixed-air stream. But to prevent potentially hazardous combustion byproducts of indoor-air contaminants, the burner is placed in the outside airstream only. The required airflow across the burner must be within a specific velocity range (typically 2,500 to 3,500 fpm) for proper combustion. For variable airflow units, a modulating bypass damper or profile plate maintains the airflow velocity within the specified velocity range. Otherwise, the burner can experience inefficient operation, generate odors in the occupied spaces served, and create an un-safe increase in certain products of combustion.



LONG SERVICE LIFE: We use premium quality industrial-grade materials and additional protective coatings for external surfaces and internal components of our Air Handling Units - to withstand the specific gases flow and the installation conditions of each application, industrial and commercial / institutional.

CAPACITIES: Up to 100,000 CFM for standard construction and larger, custom made on special request.

FLEXIBILITY: Every air handling unit is designed for the specific installation and connections conditions. The AHU floor area and its cross section dimensions are adjusted for precise room available at site.

EASY INSTALLATION: Packaged compact or sectional air handler design provided with lifting arrangement and protections for easy transportation and handling / installation at site.

LOW MAINTENANCE: Service friendly design which provide large room inside cabinet, access doors, light and rigid floor ensuring accessibility to all components.

HIGH EFFICIENCY: Fans, coils, motors, humidifiers, filters, external insulation material, silencers, enclosure tightness, and other components are carefully selected and engineered for lowest energy consumption.

OPERATIONALLY SAFE: Safety devices and guards are provided in accordance to the international regulations and the customer specific requirements.

PRECISE PERFORMANCE: To match the customer capacities requirement utilizing
the computerized selection for each AHU component.

It should be noted that demand for recirculating direct gas-fired systems has fallen in recent years. Indoor Air Quality concerns, more stringent regulations passed in recent years, and 2003, new ANSI Standards took effect. Formerly, both recirculating and 100% fresh air units were covered by the same standard. Today, ANSI Z83.4 applies to 100% Fresh Air Units and ANSI Z83.18 applies to Recirculating Units.

Buffalo Blower Co. has been developing Direct Fired Industrial Make-Up Air Systems for air temperature control at large industrial plants.

Direct Gas-Fired Heating Systems may be built in a number of configurations. They may be curb mounted as horizontal rooftop systems with down or horizontal discharge or in a vertical configuration for mounting on a pad outside of a building, with air ducted to the interior. They may also be located inside a building, suspended from hangers or mounted on support steel. Various manufacturers can supply any physical configuration required.

Two air flow configurations are available: 100% Fresh Air or Recirculating.

In the 100% Fresh Air arrangement, air is heated as it passes through the unit and supplied to the building space.

In the Recirculating arrangement, a damper is installed to allow a portion of building air to be supplied to the unit and returned to the building. This air is usually introduced downstream of the burner in a pull-through unit. Various percentage settings are available: 80% return / 20% fresh, 50/50, or variable.

Typical components, options and accessories are listed below:

Mounting Curbs:

For installation on building roof. Note – As a service, some manufacturers will also specify mounting requirements for fabrication by others. This allows a contractor to field fabricate a curb for faster installation or allows for third-party fabrication of curbs where the engineer specifies seismic-resistant construction.

Inlet Hoods:

Generally an add-on item. Prevents rain and trash from being drawn into a unit.

Filters:

Filtration may be accomplished using Cleanable Filters mounted in the Inlet Hood or by using a Flat or V-bank Filter Section. For special applications, Bag Filters or HEPA final filters may be specified, but these are not common.

Clogged filter switches and indicators are often supplied to alert maintenance personnel when filters are dirty.

Fans:

Standard units are generally supplied with DWDI (Double Width, Double Inlet) Forward Incline fans. These are competitively priced and offer good performance characteristics. For High Static applications due to building pressurization, long ductwork, filtration, or other reasons, Backward Incline (BI) Fans may be required. Other options that may be specified are Backward Incline Curved (BC) or Airfoil Fans. These are BI fans with higher efficiency and performance, but at higher cost.

Insulation & Lining:

Most manufacturers offer the option of insulation and lining. Standard insulation is generally 1” thick fiberglass or foil face fiberglass board. Linings may be steel or stainless steel to isolate insulation from the air stream. This provides for longer-lasting insulation and eliminates the possibility of contaminating the air stream if insulation breaks down.
