Two new Minicore energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) from Ruskin — enERVent models MCV500 and MCV1000 — exceed 50% to 60% total energy recovery effectiveness with 0.5% cross-contamination. Both models feature a compact 16-in chassis — ideal for ceilings and small spaces — and a hydroscopic resin energy recovery core with no moving parts for maintenance savings. The heat exchanger technology also exceeds ASHRAE 90.1 standards to accommodate future governmental regulations. The ERVs are also AHRI 1060-certified.
Both models span a wide range of airflow needs, from 300 to 1,200 cfm, and include advanced Johnson Controls Metasys® controls with BACnet as options. ECM options provide soft starts, overload and locked rotor protection, thermal projection, and more. The ERVs also deliver improved indoor air quality and ideal temperature and humidity levels while preventing the recirculation of odors and irritants. Mold and bacteria resistance is tested to ISO 846a and 846c, with a rating of 0 for both.
