Trane launches new FCU

Trane has introduced a one-way cassette fan-coil unit for office and healthcare buildings. CFAS units have a self-contained return and supply air plenum that blows parallel to the ceiling in one direction. The Coanda effect is achieved in full at all fan speeds, and a louvred linear return-air grille with a 45° angle ensures that supply and return air do not mix. Noise levels are 35 dB(A) at average speed or below. These units are only 306 mm high.

To maximise visual appeal, the CFAS has a 100% opening, as opposed to perforated grille, enabling the full face of the filter to collect dust uniformly and maximise filtering capacity. The angled return-air grille conceals the filter.
