Datacentres for better security

PRESS RELEASE: The FCZ-H range of fan coils announced by Aermec, Europe’s leading fan coil manufacturer, addresses hygiene concerns by sanitising indoor air using ultraviolet (UV) light, helping to make workplaces as safe as possible and are ideal for use in non-critical areas of datacentres.

Aermec’s sanitising fan coils have been proven to be effective against airborne bacteria and virus as well as helping to reduce the viral load and risks of infection from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Extensive research and testing carried out by Padua University’s Department of Microbiology tested Covid present on surfaces and the University of Camerino’s Department of Chemistry and School of Pharmacy carried out tests on volatile organic components (VOC) and airborne bacteria and virus.

The universities’ tests showed that the technological core of Aermec’s FCZ-H fan coil units (FCUs) core is capable of destroying pathogens without compromising the heating or cooling capabilities of the FCU.

The FCZ-H fan coil is a dual-purpose unit that provides comfort and sanitisation in one unit and is suitable for retrofits depending on the spatial limitations.

“Covid-19 has focused awareness on the importance of indoor air quality. Italy was hit particularly hard by the virus. The FCZ-H offers a solution that provides comfort whilst the sanitising action of the photocatalytic system helps to limit the spread of infections,” explains Clifford Saunders, Aermec’s Senior Applications Engineer.

The FCZ-H cooling capacities range from 0.8kW – 8.6kW and heating capacities from 2kW – 17.1kW. It combines quiet operation, low electricity consumption and reliability with the sanitising benefits of an integrated photocatalytic system.

The unit incorporates an Ultra Violet C (UVC) germicidal lamp with a Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) surface. When radiated by the lamp, any pollutants in the air flow are broken down into harmless substances by the free radicals created by the UVC and the TiO2 surface. The UVC lamp is shielded, so the device is harmless and has no effect on people in the room.

The FCZ-H fan coil unit offers maximum comfort and safety, with minimum operating noise – it is the quietest Eurovent certified fan coil on the market with noise levels down to 23dB(A).

Environmental issues have been addressed by reducing the power consumption down to four watts and avoiding the use of refrigerants in indoor ambients.  Installation and maintenance activities have also been simplified to reduce operating costs and maximise efficiency. The air filter is easily removeable for cleaning.

The fan coils can be floor or wall mounted units as well as ducted or recessed depending on requirements, addressing a variety of installation requirements. As with Aermec’s other fan coil units, depending on spatial limitations the FCZ-H can also be used for retrofits.

Units have been sold for office developments as well as a number of hospital projects. The sanitising benefits make it an ideal solution for any indoor places requiring hygienic air flows.
