ARBS 2010 will bring together over 230 exhibits and more than 10,000 visitors from the HVAC and building services industries.
Fantech Marketing Services Manager Frank Cosentino said: “ARBS is a fantastic opportunity to see the latest breakthroughs in new technologies and innovative product design”.
“As a key supplier to the industry Fantech places high value on service and direct contact with our customers. The opportunity to gain feedback on our new products and systems, and the chance to catch up with industry colleagues is an important part of our continuous improvement.”
Fantech’s strong commitment to energy efficient products and technologies will be the main focus of their stand. Frank said the demand for energy efficient systems within a building continues to grow as companies worked towards reducing energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
“Variable speed drives (VSD’s) are an important part of such systems as they allow the fan speed to be controlled according to its need,” he said.
“Fantech now provides the high quality Vacon range of drives throughout Australasia and visitors to ARBS will see it control the speed of a Fantech JetVent Impulse car park fan. JetVent has revolutionised car park design by reducing or eliminating the need for ducting and reducing energy consumption through strategic placement of a series of smaller Impulse fans. This ensures a continual air movement in a particular direction,” he said.
Fantech has recently introduced Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) which automatically varies the fan speed according to the demand requirement through the environmental conditions and occupancy level of a room. “This very efficient smart technology works in conjunction with a number of sensors and is ideal for spaces where people enter and exit during the course of the day,” Frank said.
The DCV range includes PowerLine EC duct-mounted centrifugal fans and Eco-Speed axial duct-mounted fans – the operation of both these fans will be demonstrated at ARBS.
Frank said efficiency gains were also being made through heat recovery technology where energy is recovered from an exhaust system to reduce the heating and cooling load. “The MODUtherm ER range of air handling units are designed and manufactured by Fantech’s subsidiary company Air Design and will also be displayed at ARBS,” he said. “At the heart of these units are German made, high quality Klingenburg rotary or plate heat exchangers, which are both Eurovent and ARI certified.”
While energy efficiency has been the driving force for new products, the introduction of a new Australian Standard (AS3959:2009) for construction of buildings in bush fire prone areas, has seen Fantech develop a specialist range of galvanised steel fans with bronze cover mesh over their inlets to prevent entry of embers. The ARBS stand will feature two of these – the Ezifit Thru Roof fan designed to suit bathrooms, toilets, kitchens and range hoods; and the GL Gamma series for commercial kitchen and exhaust applications.
ARBS is held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre from 12-14 April 2010. Fantech will be on stand 348 and invites visitors to come and find out more information on the products mentioned above or any other product from the Fantech range.
