An Electric heating and ventilating unit(s), as indicated on the drawings shall be furnished. Orientation shall be horizontal (Down) (Side) discharge. Unit(s) shall be factory assembled, tested and shipped as a complete packaged assembly, for indoor or outdoor mounting, consisting of the following:
Unit housing shall be constructed of 20 Gauge G-90 galvanized steel. The wall panels and roof panels shall be fabricated by forming double-standing, self-locking seams that require no additional support. The floor and wall panels shall be caulked air tight with a silicone caulk. All casing panels shall be attached with sheet-metal screws or rivets, which can be removed to service large components in the field. The unit base shall be suitable for curb or flat mount. Housing construction should be suitable for outdoor or indoor installation.
An observation port shall be located on the exterior of the unit for observing the coil. All controls and electrical components shall be mounted within the control vestibule. The vestibule shall be an integral part of the unit, not extend outside the exterior casing of the unit, and not be exposed to the main air stream.
The vestibule full-size door shall provide easy access to the controls. The blower door shall provide easy access to the blower, motor, and drives. Access doors shall be provided on both ends of the unit providing full access to every part of the unit.
The base shall be constructed of galvanized steel for improved rigidity. The base shall be structurally reinforced to accommodate the blower assembly and burner.
Wheels shall be balanced in two planes and done in accordance with AMCA standard 204-96, Balance Quality and Vibration Levels for Fans. The wheel blades shall be aerodynamically designed to minimize turbulence, increase efficiency, and reduce noise. The wheel blades shall be securely attached to the wheel inlet ring. The wheel shall be firmly attached to the fan shaft with set screws and keys. The blower assembly shall be isolated from the fan structure with vibration isolators.
Blower capacity shall be _____ CFM at 70 degrees F standard air, ____ external static pressure.
External Static: The sum of duct loss plus duct component static. Example: louvers, diffusers. All blowers shall be tested and set at rated speed after being installed in the factory-assembled unit.
Blower(s) shall be forward-curved, centrifugal, Class I or II (depending on requirements of the application), double width, double inlet, and constructed of G-90 galvanized steel. Unit shall have a heavy-duty, solid-steel shaft.
Direct drive blower assembly shall consist of a centrifugal backward inclined, non-overloading wheel secured directly to a heavy duty, ball bearing type motor via two set screws. The motor and wheel assembly shall be mounted to a heavy gauge galvanized steel frame. The motor shall be controlled by a variable frequency drive, allowing for variable airflow without the need of belts and pulleys.
Motor & Motor Compartment
Motors shall be heavy duty ball bearing type and furnished at the specified voltage, phase, and enclosure. Motor mounting plate shall be constructed of heavy gauge galvanized steel and shall be designed to provide easy adjustment of belt tension. Blower motor shall be suitable for operation on _______ volts, _______ cycle, _____ phase power. Blower motor shall be a ___________________________ HP motor, Open Drip Proof.
Shaft & Bearings
Shafts shall be precision ground and polished. Heavy duty, pre-lubricated bearings shall be selected for a minimum (L50) life in excess of 200,000 hours of operation at maximum cataloged operating speed. They shall be designed for, and individually tested, specifically for use in air handling applications.
Belts & Drives (Belt Drive Units Only)
Belts shall be oil and heat resistant, non-static, grip-notch type. Drives shall be cast type, precision machined and keyed, and securely attached to the fan and motor shafts. Fan operating speed shall be factory set using adjustable pitch motor pulleys. Blower drives shall be fully adjustable. All drives shall be a minimum of 2 grooves above 2 HP.
All cooling equipment should conform to local code requirements. All gas manifold components shall be piped and wired at the factory.
SCR Electric Coil
Electric coils are controlled using SCR controls. SCR is a time proportioning type controller that modulates the heater and supplies the exact amount of power to match the heat demand.
The SCR electric coil shall be sized to provide an output of ________ KW.
The SCR electric heater shall be capable of heating the entire air supply from _____F° to _____F° (______ degrees F temperature rise).
Rear access doors or a removable lid will provide complete access to the SCR electric coil.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL SYSTEMS:
Discharge Air temperature controls shall be shipped as a standard feature on all electric heaters. Optional room controls shall be available.
BAS (Building Automation System) Control: For building exhaust-air replacement with modulated temperature control based off of BAS supplied 0-10 Vdc or 4-20mA input signal. Auxiliary contacts and relays provided for contractor in the field.
365 Day Programmable Thermostat: Thermostat contains both a modulating heat signal and up to 3 stages of cooling. Thermostat contains 4 programmable occupied times and set-points per day and up to 24 holiday schedules. Time of day auxiliary output can be used to drive external equipment based on occupied status.
WIRING AND ELECTRICAL:
The control circuit voltage shall be 115 volts. A control transformer shall be provided, when required. The control wiring shall be carried in wire channel or conduit. Wiring in control enclosures shall be in accordance with the National Electrical Code and the local code, as it may affect the installation. Motor starter shall be provided. Starter shall be line voltage, definite purpose type.
Each condenser shall have a separate circuit enabling the supply fan motor to accept signals from a VFD without interfering with condenser operation.
Unit(s) shall be complete with all items such as relays, starters, switches, safety controls, conduit and wire, as previously mentioned and as required for proper operation. All factory-mounted controls shall be factory prewired to the unit control panel.
Unit(s) shall be operated, tested, and set at the factory using job-site conditions for electrical and gas input. All operating and safety controls shall be tested and set at the factory. Adjustable, or fixed sheaves, shall be set for proper RPM at specified conditions.
SERVICE AND PARTS
The supplier shall furnish as built wiring connection and control-circuit diagrams, dimension sheets and a full description of the unit(s). Service manuals, showing service and maintenance requirements, shall be provided with each unit.
