Titus HVAC has introduced the VENTUS LUX, an integrated chilled beam system that combines the efficiency of chilled beams with LED lighting. The company says the compact system is 30% more energy efficient than conventional overhead VAV systems and installation time is faster and more affordable. Future VENTUS LUX product enhancements will include other services and components such as smoke detectors and lighting controls.
SEMCO® LLC has introduced the NEUTON™, a plug-and-play controlled chilled beam pump module (CCBPM) for reducing chilled beam system installation and operational costs. According to the company, NEUTON is the industry's first proactive condensation control device for active chilled beams. It is a factory-built and pre-tested CCBPM package complete with its own powered integrated DDC, chilled and hot water connections, valves, variable-speed electronically commutated (EC) motor pumps, smart sensors and other features.
