Cooling and maintaining a comfortable environment in an airport is challenging. The large quantity of people walking in and out, and the opening and closing of doors, creates an unpredictable load for an HVAC system to process (and doing so efficiently is even more challenging).
Airports must meet Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) regulations that require a certain amount of outside air to be continually brought into the space. They must also maintain certain levels of air pressure to avoid the entrance of Carbon Monoxide (CO). By using Munters energy efficient technology to control temperature and humidity in the airport, IAQ standards are met, more comfortable air is delivered to the space and energy cost savings are realized.
For most airport applications, the Munters HCU is the best solution with large volumes of outside air introduced during daytime hours when the airport is occupied with its highest level of human occupants. During night hours, when the number of occupants is greatly reduced, the system can be programmed to switch into a make-up air/return air mode where less outside air is used.
