Air Purification Systems
Air Purification Systems are designed to remove odors, bacteria and other harmful particles to improve indoor quality in residential, industrial and commercial buildings. Energy International offers a range of solutions with systems designed to meet your project specifications.
Air terminal units are small air handlers designed for local use and may only include an air filter, coil, and blower. These simple terminal units are called “blower coils” or “fan-coil units.” Makeup air units are larger air terminals that condition 100 % outside air (and no recirculated air). Air handlers designed for outdoor use, typically mounted on rooftops, are known as packaged units (PU) or rooftop units (RTU).
An air handling unit (AHU), conditions and circulates air as part of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. A typical air handler is a large metal box containing a blower, heating and/or cooling element, filter racks or chambers, sound attenuators, and dampers. Air handlers connect to ductwork that distributes the conditioned air throughout the building and returns it to the AHU. AHUs can alternately be set up to discharge (supply) and admit (return) air directly to and from the space served without ductwork.
Automatic Air Vents
Vents with motor-driven louvers, actuated electronically or via pressure valve, available in many sizes and configurations.
Cartridge filters are used to filter Chlorine from water eliminating bad taste and odor. There are several different types of filter designs including depth and pleated. Media types include carbon, coconut carbon, ceramic and membrane.

A chiller is a machine that removes heat from a liquid via a vapor-compression or absorption refrigeration cycle. This liquid can then be circulated through a heat exchanger to cool air or equipment as required. As a necessary byproduct, refrigeration creates waste heat that must be exhausted to ambient or, for greater efficiency, recovered for heating purposes.
Cooling towers are heat removal devices used to transfer process waste heat into the atmosphere. Cooling towers may either use the evaporation of water to remove process heat and cool the working fluid to near the wet-bulb air temperature or, in the cased of closed circuit dry cooling towers, rely solely on air to cool the working fluid to near dry-bulb air temperature.
Available in hundreds of configurations and sizes, drains can be used to remove water, chemicals, oil and other liquids from buildings, parking structures and roadways. Some units are designed to collect and separate particles, oils and grease from liquid or to keep contaminants from entering the water supply. Many materials are available including cast iron, PVC, stainless steel and bronze.

Electric Duct Heaters
Mounted inline in an HVAC system Electric Duct Heaters heat air as it passes over an electrically heated coil. The units can be actuated remotely by connecting them to the Building Management System or locally via temperature sensor.
Exhaust & Supply Fans
Fundamental to HVAC systems, these fans are built-to-order for specific applications and can be supplied in a timely fashion. Exhaust and supply fans are available in a number of different configurations and sizes designed to meet concise specifications. Examples include roof-mounted dome fans, axial and centrifugal in-line fans, wall-mounted propeller fans and in-line utility blowers.
Exhaust Cleaning Systems
Waste air purification systems combine photo-oxidation and catalytic oxidation for removal of pollutants, odors and solvents. The waste air purification process is based on a technology that induces photo-oxidizing reactions to remove organic solvents and odorous substances using UVC light as the driving force in this process. A catalytic converter further increases the effectiveness of the oxidation reactions.
Fire & Smoke Dampers
Dampers are designed to prevent fire and smoke from spreading from a fire source through the ventilation system and into other parts of the building. Depending on their application, fire dampers have different fire-resistance classes (called “fire-duration ratings”) and can be installed in concrete or masonry walls and in lightweight partition walls.
A fire pump is a part of a fire sprinkler system’s water supply and can be powered by electric or diesel. The pump intake is either connected to the public underground water supply piping, or a static water source (e.g., tank, reservoir, lake). The pump provides water flow at a higher pressure to the sprinkler system risers and hose standpipes.p>
Flexible connectors excel in shock and anti-vibration applications. They can create a gasket-like seal for harsh environments. Flexible connectors are available in many sizes, types, and configurations.
Used for under-floor HVAC ducting and electrical needs, floating floors are required in many of today’s building projects.
Gauges & Thermometers, Actuators
Analog and digital monitoring equipment for use in many applications from HVAC to water movement and control.
Grilles, Registers, Diffusers, Louvers
Grilles, registers, diffusers and louvers are the aesthetically-functional face of an HVAC system. They are available in an unlimited array of sizes, colors, controls, and configurations and can be custom-designed to suit any project. Along with standard units, specialized units are available for security and fire prevention applications, and designed with special filters for use in hospitals and laboratories.
Humidified air can protect wooden objects and other sensitive furnishings which may be damaged by overly-dry air. In colder months, humidifiers provide substantial energy savings as occupants feel warm at a lower temperature with humidified air. For buildings with a forced-air furnace, a humidifier may be built right into a furnace.
Hygenic Air-Handling Units
Hygienic air-handling units provide clean, conditioned air for clean rooms, operating rooms, laboratories and pharmaceutical and electronic facilities. These units are manufactured in conformity with stringent standards and guidelines.
Industrial blowers are primarily used to exhaust foul air and replace it with fresh outside air. They are typically used for high volume, high static pressure applications to provide general ventilation in heavy-duty commercial and industrial applications including factories, warehouses, gymnasiums, underground parking garages, etc.
Jet fans are low profile, high velocity induction fans used to control air movement in cars parks and tunnels. In car parks the fans are situated to direct the air flow for the removal of polluted air and the removal of smoke in the event of a fire.
Kitchen Ventilation Systems
An extractor hood (U.K.) or range hood (U.S.), also known as a kitchen hood, stove hood, exhaust hood, cooker hood, extraction hood, cooking canopy, ventilation hood, extractor fan, fume extractor or electric chimney, is a device containing a fan that hangs above the stove or cooktop in the kitchen. It is used to remove airborne grease, combustion products, smoke, odors, heat, and steam from the air by a combination of filtration and evacuation of the air.
Make-Up Air Systems
Direct-Fired make-Up Air Systems are widely used in kitchen and food-service operations to replace stale or foul exhaust air with fresh and clean outside air. Models are provided in capacities from 800 to 14,000 CFM with 100% fresh air heated by either natural of LP gas.
Natural ventilation is the process of supplying and removing air through an indoor space by natural means. There are two types of natural ventilation occurring in buildings: wind driven ventilation and stack ventilation.
Precision Air Conditioning Units
Precision air conditioning units are designed to run non-stop maintaining a very close control on environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity.
Pumps are used to move gases, liquids, or slurries. A pump displaces a volume by physical or mechanical action. Pumps fall into two major groups: positive displacement and rotodynamic.

Sand Trap Louvers
Sand Trap Louvers are designed to separate debris from the air stream and are generally used for ventilation applications and at the inlet duct of air handling units. Sand trap louvers can be operated manually operated by a motor located on the back of the louver.
Smoke and Fire Curtains
Automatic smoke curtains are designed to deploy in the event of a building fire. Smoke curtains channel smoke away from emergency exit areas away from building occupants. Fire curtains are used to isolate areas of a structure during a fire to keep the fire from spreading. The use of automatic smoke and fire curtains has grown over the last few years as fire engineered solutions have become more complex and architectural demands have placed greater demand on fire strategies.
Sound attenuators (silencers) are used in HVAC systems to help absorb noise that is generated by fans or other air moving equipment.

Storage & Expansion Tanks
Storage tanks accumulate and store collected matter. The size of an expansion tank depends on the system pressure, collector area, system volume, and static height of the system.
Temperature & Pressure Relief Valves
This safety valve releases water (thus relieving pressure) if either the temperature or pressure in a tank gets too high.
UV Filtration Systems
UV Disinfectant Systems use ultraviolet lamps to effectively remove bacteria and other pathogens providing clean water for home and office. UV treatments are safe to use and chemical free. UV treatment does not change the taste, odor, pH or the general chemistry of water. UV systems are compatible with all other water treatment equipment including reverse osmosis, filtration, water-conditioning and softening.

Valves & Fittings
Valves may be operated manually, either by a hand wheel, lever or pedal. Valves may also be automatic, driven by changes in pressure, temperature or flow. These changes may act upon a diaphragm or a piston which in turn activates the valve, examples of this type of valve found commonly are safety valves fitted to hot water systems or steam boilers.
Vibration Isolators & Noise Control
Passive vibration isolation systems consist essentially of a mass-spring-damper system. Isolating devices reflect and absorb waves of oscillatory energy extending from a working gear or piece of electrical equipment with the aid of effect of vibration insulation. Isolators are available in a wide range of sizes and configurations.
Water softeners remove calcium, magnesium and other minerals from ground water. These minerals can dissolve out of the water and build up on the insides of pipes, water heaters, etc., reducing water flow and eventually plugging up pipes. Hard water also reduces the ability of soap to lather and can react with soap to form a sticky scum. Systems are designed for residential and commercial/industrial applications.
