Our new room-side constant flow/constant torque toggle switch helps smart components work more efficiently.
Is it possible to be too smart? Sometimes it is, like when you have an FFU such as the Criti-Clean Ultra with a smart ECM motor trying to work downstream from a smart VAV in the same system – and both smart motors are simultaneously trying to adjust to maintain constant airflow. So we came up with a solution.
To help offset this fairly common problem, AJ Manufacturing will soon be introducing a new option for our Criti-Clean Ultra fan powered laminar flow HEPA filter diffusers – a new room side toggle switch that lets you easily change from constant flow to constant torque, thereby allowing the VAV box to control airflow. We think that’s a solution so simple that it’s really pretty smart, too!
Of course, we can’t take all the credit for this latest improvement to our industry-leading Criti-Clean Ultra. Our customers were the ones who told us about this recurring problem, so we set out to fix it. It’s just another example of how we’re always eager to listen to our customers’ feedback and help provide them with solutions to their challenges.
Look for the new constant flow/constant torque toggle switch option to be available on our Criti-Clean Ultra FFUs early in 2019, as well as more information in future issues of Critical Thinking.
