Trox X-Cube solution for Huddersfield University

Published:  03 May, 2018

Trox

Trox X-Cube air handling units have been chosen for an awardwinning new building at to the University of Huddersfield. Sustainability was a priority for the £28 million Oastler Building, and the Trox air handling units at the heart of the HVAC system contribute to the energy efficient building, which has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating.

The design of the different zones, and the diversity of usages throughout the Oastler Building, create a significant air management challenge. Air handing and ventilation demands vary from dynamic social spaces and lecture rooms, to long, tall corridors and individual study booths for language students requiring sound attenuation.

The X-Cube’s integral variable flow control facilitates room-byroom air management, adjusting automatically to requirements. It connects seamlessly to a centralised BMS (via Modbus TCP, Ethernet or BACnet), the X-Cube’s built-in control technology (available as standard) avoids the need for complex or expensive bespoke programming of the BMS. Estates management professionals and building services engineers can interface with the AHU via touchscreen, remote control or web browser.
