Air handling units usually distribute the conditioned air through a range of ductwork with the aid of a centrifugal or plug type fan powered by a motor. Modulated percentages of supply air will be brought in from outside the building or recirculated within according to environmental requirements. Many grades of filtration, cooling or humidification can also be specified and included within the packaged unit.
Alongside the push towards extra heat exchanger control and efficiency comes the focus on condensing products, this highlights the importance of specifying a fully sealed, positive pressure stainless steel flue system designed to match technically advanced appliances.
Providing a suitable flue and chimney system to serve the many different types of air handling units that meet local and national standards is an important consideration for consultants, specifiers and specialist installers, SFL has the product ranges and knowledge to provide the quality, safe and secure flue and chimney required.
Performance of the appliances can be significantly affected by incorrect flue design and many other factors including:
Exhaust product condensation High efficiency can lead to condensate forming within the flue exhaust, correctly designed systems with seals and joint clamps minimising leaks and joint failure should be specified, 316L stainless-steel flue material selection will maximise corrosion protection and assure long service life.
Selecting the right product Flues and chimney design should be matched perfectly to the flue system required, for example, specifying single wall stainless flue whilst within the heated building then upgrading to twin wall insulated stainless flue once exiting the building minimises installation costs and speeds up hand over to the user.
