GEA CAIR®pool: technological efficiency for climate control and dehumidification in large and small indoor pools
16. October 2014 With its new GEA CAIR® pool series, GEA Heat Exchangers replaces its former CAIR® fricostar swimming pool climate control models by products with new internal configuration and more efficient components.
The new engineering design of the dehumidification equipment results in significantly reduced susceptibility to corrosion, and reduces the danger of emission of pollutants into swimming pools. For new pools as well as for modernization of existing swimming facilities, operators with the GEA CAIR®pool series will profit from power consumption that is 40 % less than conventional equipment. This gain in efficiency is the result of improvements in GEA CAIR®pool that include EC fans, inverter-controlled compressors, electronic expansion valves, and a new control strategy. With regard to various application and installation situation, GEA CAIR®pool, for heat recovery, offers multi-stage recuperators, Power Tubes, and the liquid-coupled heat exchanger. These multi-stage recuperators satisfy the requirements of Energy Efficiency Class H1. The Power Tubes represent especially space-saving heat recovery technology that can be particularly interesting in cases of replacement investment. The liquid-coupled heat exchanger system enables effective heat recovery, even in cases of separate installation of supply- and extract-air units. The comfort functions of heating or cooling are available as options. If requested, it is likewise possible to enable using the units to heat pool water or domestic/building water.
With 13 model sizes, the series covers the requirement spectrum beginning with private swimming pools, including wellness facilities and hotel pools, and extending to public indoor pools and leisure centers. GEA CAIR®pool units are accordingly available with maximum air flow of 800 m³/h for the smallest model, up to approx. 36,000 m³/h for the largest unit. GEA CAIR®pool models conform with the hygienic directives VDI 6022 and the future regulations placed on passive buildings. Three corrosion-protection classes are available for selection: for drinking water, for brine with salt-water content up to 6 %, and for thermal water in wellness pools. To simplify installation of the equipment in existing buildings, the new GEA CAIR®pool models allow breaking down the recuperator unit and re-assembling it in parts.
