Johnson Controls adds wrap-around heat exchangers to its air-handling units
By Megan Hoegler
Johnson Controls has added wrap-around heat exchangers (WAHX) to its YORK Solution Indoor and Outdoor air-handling units.
The heat exchangers are now available on the YORK Solution units, as part of the brand’s efforts to meet a growing need for energy-efficient dehumidification methods in a compact footprint.
Integrated WAHX offer dehumidification benefits for many HVAC air handling system applications, including schools, hospitals, laboratories and gymnasiums. The heat exchanger addition also includes AMCA-certified fan systems with AC induction and EC motor options, slide-out coil stacking racks with a removable coil pull wall panel, raised coil supports, motor removal rails, inward-swinging doors and inside door handles.
The units are engineered for outdoor use and feature a patent-pending zero-penetration membrane roof system backed by a 10-year roof warranty. They also include an exterior two-layer coating system with a salt spray test rating that exceeds 2,000 hours. YORK Solution Outdoor units are the first semi-custom air handlers to offer a full-length integral factory-installed service vestibule, providing convenient, safe service access with full protection from inclement weather conditions.
