Ecobuild proves perfect timing for new fan efficiency focus
Exhibiting on Stand N3430 at Ecobuild 2013, Elta Fans will be focusing on a number of developments, including the new ErP (Energy related Products) Directive, introduced on 1 January 2013, a piece of legislation that is having a profound effect on the building services sector.
A number of fans will be on show from the Elta Select range, supported by a brand new catalogue which identifies the products from Elta that are compliant with the legislation. By providing a visual reference point for visitors to understand what constitutes compliant and non-compliant products, the stand graphics will illustrate the reasons why fans meet the new energy efficiency requirements and, importantly, why many products are unaffected whilst legislation remains in draft form.
Amongst the fans on the stand will be a Raptor SPA EC and SDA EC, a Compact SCP and ZOO Fan EC model highlighting Elta Fans development programme of designing and manufacturing units to meet the fan motor efficiency and specific fan power values stipulated under the ErP Directive. Also on display to visitors will be a Komfovent Domekt heat recovery unit and the brand new Viper SCC EC.
Alan Macklin is group technical manager at Elta and recognises the particularly opportune timing of Ecobuild this year – "Sustainability and an environmentally aware approach to building is what Ecobuild is all about so it couldn’t have come at a better time so hard on the heels of the new legislation being implemented. We have spent considerable time and effort, and will continue to do so, in producing information which is helpful to the market in understanding the implications of this very specific focus on the energy efficiency of fans. But one of the prime benefits of an exhibition is the opportunity it presents for face to face interaction, a chance for people to pose their questions to us and for us to explain what they now need to know in specifying fans for HVAC applications."
