The EHT next generation hybrid induction terminal combines cooling, heating, fresh air, ventilation-only and air distribution in one compact device for rooms with a ceiling height of up to four metres. “We responded to the need for an HVAC system that combined good air quality and acoustic comfort with reductions in energy consumption with an unbeatable output that currently offers one of the highest induction ratios on the market,” says Michele Gioachin, export sales manager at Aermec and president of Aermec UK. The manufacturer believes a fundamental feature of the EHT is its aesthetic appeal, making it an ideal solution for interiors, including offices, hotel rooms, airports, railway stations, hospital environments and any large area in general. The design of the EHT’s nozzles sets it apart. Developed using CFD analysis, their moulded production quality that guarantees an induction ratio up to six, (independent testing was conducted by the University of Aachen). With no moving parts the EHT is said to offer unprecedented acoustic comfort. CONDAIR CELEBRATES 75 YEARS Humidity control specialist Condair is celebrating its 75-year anniversary. Having been founded in 1948 as Defensor AG in Switzerland by chemist, Dr Bernard Joos, the company is marking the occasion across its many offices around the world. The first product offered in 1948 was an air spray disinfection system, which “defended” against cattle infections, hence the company name at the time of Defensor. It was soon realised that the humidification properties of the atomiser were greatly beneficial in several manufacturing sectors, particularly cheese ripening rooms. Tony Fleming, managing director of Condair Limited in the UK, said: “75 years is a wonderful milestone to achieve as an organisation. Condair’s longevity is testament to its ability to innovate and proudly develop market leading technology and deliver it with expert knowledge and service support. The company has always been at the forefront of the humidification sector and continues to lead the field in engineering excellence.”
