Air Handling Units

For the best indoor climate

Nowhere is profitability more important than in industry and commerce. We take a holistic view of the building and support you in designing the most economical ventilation system. The use of several decentralised compact devices on the roof offers a number of important benefits, especially for industrial buildings. Compact air handling units are mostly used for office and social rooms. All air handling unit variants have the same robust and extremely durable housing construction.

Clever details such as the integrated roof base reduce planning and installation effort and thus investment costs. We only use high-quality and efficient brand components “Made in Germany” in the air handling unit. The integrated control system ensures that it is operated as required. The result is reliable operation and low operating costs.

The principle of air handling

What is special about Schwank air handling units?

The tasks of an air handling system are diverse, particularly in the area of industrial buildings and industry operations. Thre is a need for compliance with specified air temperatures and humidity, removal of heat or material loads, reduction of particles from the outside air. With all these factors required simultaneously, economical and reliable operation is of particular importance.

Counterflow plate heat exchangers do not need any moving parts and are accordingly robust. By designing for low air speeds, up to 90% of the heat can be recovered. Energy-saving motors with EC technology keep the power consumption of the supply and extract air fans low. Numerous heating and cooling register variants ensure the necessary air treatment. High quality filters clean the air efficiently. The integrated control technology ensures that all components of the air handling unit work together optimally. This means that only the energy that is absolutely necessary to achieve the specified goals is used.

Decentralised & central air handling units

Ventilation technology in a nutshell

Benefits of decentralised ventilation technology:

In decentralised air handling systems, several smaller units are arranged on the roof of the building. Supply and exhaust air as well as all necessary media are led into the building via the integrated base with only one roof penetration. The supply air is blown into the ceiling area or led into the lower building area, depending on the requirements and structural conditions. An air duct network can be largely or completely dispensed with. This has a lot of benefits:

  • The reduction in pressure losses saves energy costs.
  • The cleaning of the ducts is reduced or eliminated altogether.
  • There are fewer collisions with other components to consider.
  • No penetration of fire compartments inside the building.
  • The lower planning effort saves investment costs.
  • The investment and maintenance costs for the sewer network are eliminated.
  • A needs-based zone control is easy to implement.
  • High availability: in the event of maintenance, the other devices continue to run.

Central ventilation technology

Decentralised solutions are not always feasible. Schwank offers energy-efficient compact devices for indoor and outdoor installation for central air-conditioning systems.

● exchange of existing air handling units, e.g. for comprehensive renovation

● supply of social and ancillary rooms in industrial buildings

● office building

● schools and kindergartens

● hotels

● leisure facilities, e.g. gyms

● salesrooms
