Automation system

max.e3 is fully equipped with all necessary automation and all executive mechanisms. The electric switchboard is integrated into the unit and located on the operation side. The "Brain" of max.e3 is its specially designed by Damvent controller which controls and manages all processes and protects the unit from eventual cut-offs.

Rotary heat exchanger

All of the max.e3 units use an air-to-air rotary heat exchanger- Sorption type, made from aluminum foil and 3Å molecular sieve which gives high sensitivity for absorbing water molecules (HM1 type). Sorption rotors provide an excellent method to pre-cool and dehumidify the fresh air before entering the DX cooling coil. Temperature efficiency (Sensible) - E ≥ 70%, Humidity - E ≤ 80%.

Fans

max.e3 use ZAbluefin plug fans with latest EC Blue (Electronically Commutated) from of the company Ziehl-Abegg. Fan wheel statically and dynamically balanced on the axis of the direct-driven motor. Fan wheel together with the motor are mounted on a common base frame with vibration dampers.

Heat pump

100% DX unit No additional water, electric or DX heating/cooling coils are needed in the max.e3, which makes it independent to other additional heating/cooling sources (boilers, chillers, VRF systems, etc.)

Concepts

Learn more about what the main advantages of hybrid HVAC solutions for fresh air treatment
  • 3E - Concept
  • 2 Stage Heat/Cool
  • All in 1
  • 100% Factory tested
  • 100% Plug and play

1е - Every Climate – from -25°C to +60°C

2е - Every Application – suitable for every application where 100% fresh air is needed, by means of covering all possible air treatment processes:

    Filtration
    Recirculation – 0÷100%
    Heat recovery
    Heating
    Cooling + Dehumidification
    Proces Ventilation

3е - Every Installation - suitable for all types of mounting, indoor (machinery rooms, technical floors, etc.) and outdoor

Recovering up to 100% of the extract heating/cooling, achieved - "consecutively" in 2 stages:

1st stage - the sorption rotary heat exchanger, recovers more than 70% of the heatig/cooling and humidity.

2nd stage -the evaporator/condenser of the air to air heat pump, recovers the rest up to 100%.

A multifunctional concept solution for fresh air (as well as for covering heating losses and cooling loads at once), which can practically solve entirely the need for Air-Conditioning, Ventilation and Heating at the project site by using only air as fluid. Thus, radiators/fan coils/cassettes, boilers, chillers/VRF systems, pipes, insulations, pumps, fittings, etc., are no longer required. It only needs a duct system, - (which already exists in every conventional system) - and the correct designing of the necessary air quantity.

High reliability and reduced installation costs, achieved by 100% factory tests - each unit is tested under factory conditions.

The test includes:
    -  Leakage check
    -  Vacuuming and loading the system with the exact refrigerant quantity
    -  Functional testing of all fans and compressors
    -  Vibrations
    -  Loading the controller's software
    -  Temperature and pressure checks
    -  Setting up the required air flow
    -  Recording all parameters of the unit on a test list

A standalone "one-piece" unit, which only needs a duct system and power supply for its start up.

Performance

Take a look at the improved technology

  • Increased Total Filtration Area(m2) by 45%.
  • Decreased Total Internal Pressure Drop (Pa) by 20÷40%
  • Sound Pressure Level, reduced up to 5 dB(A)
  • Higher Total Heating Capacity (kW) by 30÷35%
  • Precise Condensing Temperature/Pressure control during the summer mode
  • Stepless Capacity Control
  • Up to 78% humidity recovery during the winter mode
  • 30÷45% higher Total Cooling Capacity (kW)

COP/SCOP/SPF

Higher than the highest standards!
A conventional air cooled heat pump uses the ambient air for the evaporation process and during the winter this air can reach temperatures of -10°C, -15°C or even -20°C. Extracting heat from the ambient air is an inefficient process. In comparison, max.e2 uses the extract air from within the room.

Hardware

Everything you need to know about the machine’s components

  • Design

    The solutions from the max.e3 series are designed and manufactured in accordance with EN 1886 – (Ventilation for buildings-Air handling units Mechanical Performance).
    max.e3 is designed as a system with the structure of the unit, manufactured as a mono-block (from size max.e3-02 to size max.e3-18. Bigger sizes like max.e3-25, 30, 35 are produced on sections) consisting of aluminium profile, supporting elements, connection angles and locking accessories.

  •  Connectivity and mobility

    Connectivity and mobility

    All hybrid units allow into the corresponding connector of the ICB controller to be mounted specialized internet circuit board for internet connection. The built-in circuit board, allows a permanent internet connection to max.e from any location in the world. This option helps you/us to make adequate reaction to situations requiring fast and accurate solutions to the problem.

  • Filters

    Filters are installed at the entrance of the unit to ensure normal operation of the AHU and to prevent contamination of the components. 
    Microcell filters are used in the units max.e3. These filters are made of plated micro glass paper and spaced with hotmelt adhesive beads which are uniformly positioned to deliver optimum airflow.

  • Initial investment costs
  • Installation costs and labor
  • Installed electric power
  • Energy and exploitation costs
  • Service and Maintenance costs
  • Time
  • Space
  • BMS

In comparison to conventional HVAC equipment, max.e3 reduces the investment costs by removing the need for: radiators/fan coils/cassettes, boilers, chillers/VRF systems, pipes, insulations, pumps, fittings and morе.

Beeing 100% Factory tested and 100% Plug and Play max.e3 reduces significant part of the labor costs.

max.e3 can reduce up to 30% the necessary installed power for HVAC system. In some cases even more.

Providing COP/EERnet = 5÷15, ensures the lowest possible energy costs for HVAC (EUR/kWh).

Maintaining only one unit instead of several, reduces significantly the maintenance cost. Filters are the only components that need to be checked, cleaned and replaced.

It saves time in designing, installation works, start-up and commissioning, service and maintenance, etc...

Whether it's installed indoor or outdoor, the absence of separate (VRF/Chiller), additional pipes, provide "clean roofs" for the buildings.

Significantly reduces the costs for a BMS system regarding its HVAC part.
