PreciseLine has vertical option

USA: Daikin has added a vertical configuration to its PreciseLine air handlers.

Built using a series of small, integrated units, PreciseLine air handlers are designed for applications with space and budget restrictions. The new vertical configuration provide additional application flexibility, and are described as ideal for retrofits and applications such as individual classroom conditioning.

“Limited space shouldn’t limit options,” said Chris Stocker, senior product manager, Daikin Applied Americas. “PreciseLine was designed to provide the features and performance of large air-handling systems but at a size and price point that give building owners better control, comfort and air quality in each specific space.”

Compliant with ASHRAE 62.1-2019 standards for high IAQ, PreciseLine air handlers can be equipped with up to MERV 13 filters, which capture particles as small as .3 to 1 micron, such as legionella and spores. Its double-wall panel construction also keeps conditioned air in the cabinet until it’s delivered to the intended space, reducing the potential for contact with contaminants.

The air handlers include R-6.5 insulation foam panels deliver ultra-low leakage with an AHRI Class 9 construction rating at up to 5in of static pressure. The availability of sound attenuation packages reduce sound levels by 6 to 7dB.

Direct-drive, variable-speed fans that provide highly efficient airflow by eliminating energy losses associated with belt-driven fans.

PreciseLine can be used for cooling only, or both cooling and heating. The system is also capable of delivering high volumes of fresh outside ventilation for mixed-air applications.
