Ruskin thinks ‘out of the box’ with fan-coil units

Ruskin Air Management has developed a total-system approach to fan-coil projects that can reduce installation costs by 70%. Its Hydropac EC fan-coil units are now available as a complete ‘straight-out-of-the-box’ system — including fully integrated controls that are factory set to improve accuracy and minimise commissioning time on site.

Through its group companies Actionair and Air Diffusion, Ruskin takes full responsibility for the design and system components — including modulating valves, actuators and sensors — to ensure the complete package works in harmony and is tuned to match demand patterns in the building before it leaves the factory.

Controls are integrated from the start. No special software tools are needed to ensure the system is commissioned and calibrated as this is taken care of by Ruskin’s in-house engineers.

There is also no need for the installer to carry out the usual water-flow commissioning tasks as the FCUs arrive on site ready to ‘plug and play’. Wiring costs are also reduced because the Hydropac system is line-voltage powered.

The EC motors are cold running, and the system is built around load-dependant control, which reduces the amount of air passing through each unit; this increases motor operating life by 50% to an estimated 50 000 h, or 30 years usage in a standard commercial office building.
