The VivesCo X series operates based on the crossflow induction principle developed by Inteco. The ventilation plenum, where primary air is connected, is located at the top of the casing. An induction zone has been realised below this, with the lower panel featuring a water-transporting heat exchanger. The aerodynamic nozzles under the ventilation plenum blow primary ventilation air into the induction zone, without the air streams touching each other. This flow can realise strong induction because the air flow covers a relatively long distance in the unit, and because air speeds contrast with each other. This means more secondary air can be attracted across the heat exchanger (high induction rate). Mixed air (primary and secondary) is then blown into the relevant space via the outflow opening at the bottom of the unit. The outflow opening has been placed so out-flowing air passes along the ceiling and, due to the coanda effect, continues to travel along the ceiling over a long distance to create the desired cooling or heating.
2 rows of aerodynamic discharge nozzles are used to blow primary (fresh) air into the unit's induction zone. These nozzles are inter-changeable, which means units can be easily modified to suit the new situation if there is a change in the function of the relevant space. The units can be adjusted to suit any situation because nozzles are available in various sizes. The bottom panel of the unit can be opened, which means the insides of the unit, including the heat exchanger, can be reached and cleaned easily.
This flexible induction unit can be integrated into all ceiling systems, or be installed separately on a structural construction.
