RenewAire SA Series Core Arrays
July 2, 2020
RenewAire® has introduced the SA Series to provide energy recovery in commercial air handlers without cross-contamination of air, and without intensive fabrication requirements. The SA Series is a factory-assembled, turnkey array of stacked static-plate enthalpy cores on a baseplate. The static plate enthalpy cores recover energy by using air from a building’s air return to preheat or precool incoming outdoor air. The SA Series is an alternative to maintenance-intensive and costly enthalpy wheels. Consulting engineers and design/build contractors can now easily specify a nearly infinite variety of SA Series configurations that will fit the interiors of most OEM air handler models and brands. Standard and custom sizes are available. Unlike other core packages that rely on contractors and OEMs to fabricate connection and sealing hardware, the SA Series is a fully-integrated, turnkey static-plate core package designed for single-source responsibility. The OEM or installing contractor only provides sheet metal flashing to connect the array assembly to the air handler’s interiors. The package includes a baseplate, airflow-channeling baffles, interconnecting linkages and impenetrable factory seals for near-zero cross-contamination and bypass of the supply and return air streams. The linkages connect each core vertically and horizontally, and secure the array assembly to the baseplate. All assembly sizes can be factory-knocked down and shipped to the OEM or jobsite for air handler installation in spaces that are cramped or inaccessible for fully-assembled systems.
