IEC to Showcase New Direct Drive Blower Coil Series as Efficient Alternative to Belt-Drive Products

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – In recent years, belt-driven blower coils have been the standard for ducted applications that require greater static pressures. However, they require frequent belt tightening, inspection and replacement. To combat this, in tandem with rising energy costs, International Environmental Corporation will introduce its new Horizontal and Vertical Direct Drive Blower Coil Series at AHR 2017.

Accommodating a variety of applications, these models are equipped with a direct-drive EC motor, eliminating belt-drive slips and other concerns associated with belt-drive systems. The new line offers an alternative that is more reliable and efficient, resulting in increased energy savings, an extended motor life, easier installation and less maintenance.

The HDA/VDA Blower Coil Series, which ranges from 600 to 3,000 cfm, features larger blower wheels and a broader range of performance than conventional ceiling fan coil units. Utilized most often in healthcare, hospitality, education, retail and other commercial mixed-use facilities, the HDA/VDA has significant acoustical benefits, eliminating the mechanical drive noises which are evident in typical belt-drive products. It features a wide range of vertical and horizontal model sizes, chilled and hot water coils and electric heaters and designed to work with varying space requirements. The HDA will be present and available for demonstration in booth #1113 at AHR 2017.

In addition to its new blower coil offering, IEC will have an operating MiniReStoraMOD, the smallest high-rise fan coil solution in the industry, enabling easy and fast replacement for many hospitality, multifamily and higher education applications.
