Weger re-equips Kennet Leisure Centre
Weger Air Solutions has supplied new air-handling and dehumidification equipment for Kennet Leisure Centre in Berkshire The replacement was made necessary by the high levels of moisture and chemicals in the air taking their inevitable toll on the previous equipment.
The Weger unit is rated at 7.28 m3/s and has a duplex heat recuperator that was carefully selected to achieve an efficiency of 96.5% at design conditions and recover 296 kW of heat.
The unit was supplied partly in sections and in flat-pack components that could pass through an opening of 2.5 x 1 m. Assembly on site took only three days to meet a very tight project programme.
The comprehensive controls package enables the equipment to work from 100% fresh air to 100% recirculation. Design conditions are a pool-hall temperature of 30°C and an RH of 60%, as recommended by the English Sports Council.
