Energy Recovery Wheel: Semco LLC
According to Semco, the UWC Series' 3.75-in wide wheels feature a fast-acting, corrosion-resistant, proprietary desiccant that's applied to a sturdy but lightweight all-aluminum wheel substrate. The honeycomb matrix's fluted opening design efficiently produces maximum latent and sensible air-to-air heat transfer, but generates up to 50% less HVAC system static pressure than polymer film wheels. Besides assisting buildings in surpassing ASHRAE 90.1 building energy compliancy, the aluminum wheels also have longer lifecycles and vastly less periodic maintenance requirements than polymer wheels and can withstand temperatures of up to 180°F.
The UWC Series offers nine wheel diameters. All UWC Series models come fully-assembled and packaged as plug-and-play cassettes that include the industrial-duty inverter motor, corrosion-resistant rotor, and industrial-grade link drive belt.
