Make Up Air Fan: Modular Packaged Unit
Our Modular Packaged Units can be optimized for higher efficiency and greater performance.
For decades, the typical kitchen hood system returned the exhausted air through an un-tempered make-up air system. The Modular Package Unit takes the existing make-up air design and improves it with the addition of tempering via a single pass DX coil. This coil is capable of lowering the incoming air temperature by up to 15 degrees before introducing it into your kitchen along the cook line.
*The Modular Package Unit is not designed to cool the kitchen.
100% of Make-Up Air is exhausted out by design through the vent hood.*
The Modular Package Unit is a supplementary addition to the make-up air fan that reduces the heat load introduced into the kitchen by the make-up air system. This can reduce the overall tonnage needed by the HVAC system to cool the kitchen.
Modular packaged units have many applications. They include but not limited to:
- Restaurants – All restaurants with a kitchen hood system will benefit from the additional cooling, and dehumidifying achieved by the Modular Package Units.
- Commercial Kitchens –Commercial kitchens already generate hundreds of thousands of BTU’s. The Modular Package Units prevents your make-up air system from adding to those BTU’s.
- Factories –Modular Package Units can aid the HVAC system in keeping the space cool and conditioned when exhausting large amounts of air from the building.
- Expo Cooking – When the cookline is on the edge of or mixing with the dining room, the Modular Package Unit can keep your customers comfortable by tempering the hot, humid air a traditional make-up air unit returns.
Modular Package Units are not only efficient and cost effective for tempering make-up air systems, but they are also easy to install into a new build-out or even retrofit into an existing system. Their self contained modular design means they can replace a traditional rooftop filtered unit without any need for additional roof penetrations.
These units are also available as a split system when rooftop space is unavailable, or when upgrading an existing inline filtered make-up air fan. The R-410A condensing units have a small footprint so they can easily be tucked away from the customers view and quiet enough to not disrupt the ambiance of your establishment.
