PoolPak Indoor Pool Dehumidifiers

Poolrooms consisting of indoor swimming pools, also called natatoriums, suffer from excess moisture buildup when pool water is warmed to swimming temperatures. This moisture is full of indoor air contaminants, such as chlorine or bromine disinfectants, and can cause serious mold and mildew problems if not removed. Therefore, indoor pool dehumidifiers are critical to protect people’s health and the integrity of a building’s infrastructure.

SHARC Wastewater Energy Recovery

Everyday, vast amounts of hot water are used once before being discarded down the drain. In the U.S., 350+ billion kilowatt-hours of energy are added annually to domestic potable water between point of building intake and exit. How can this significant energy jettison be captured and reused? The solution is SHARC Energy Systems, a world leader in wastewater energy recovery.

Aermec Fan Coil Units

Units come with brushless inverter motors and are available in various set-ups depending on the installation position, with the possibility of being ducted as well. They have ABS fans with an impeller equipped with an accessible airfoil and scroll fins. This feature, combined with the presence of the inverter motor, gives the machine a net reduction in the noise level, as well as a reduction in the motor’s electrical consumption compared to traditional fans with a metal structure.

Thermax Vapor Absorption Cooling Systems

As a global leader in vapor absorption cooling systems, Thermax offers a wide range of energy-efficient and environmentally friendly absorption chillers. The chillers use steam, hot water, gas, exhaust gas and mixed fuels as an energy-source alternative to electricity-driven chillers, and Thermax provides many capacity options from 15 to 4,000 tons.
