desiccant-based products and systems
Since 1963, SEMCO has pioneered products and services that improve indoor environments. Today, we are a worldwide innovator of desiccant-based products and systems able to recover energy, increase ventilation, and control humidity. We are also among the world's largest fabricators of energy-efficient spiral pipe and fittings, acoustical enclosures, and sound attenuators, all manufactured in America.
You need solutions and support: we provide both. Customers worldwide have come to rely upon SEMCO for proven technologies and service.
SEMCO is wholly owned by the Flškt Woods group.
The SEMCO FR-PANL is the industry's only certified fire protection panel that's also building code-compliant for use in structural, acoustical and thermal applications.
SEMCO's MD-PANL Modular Duct Systems are designed with an integrated structure which eliminates much of the expensive structural steel and fabrication labor required when fabricating large field-built dual wall duct. This, combined with the "no screws" tongue-and-groove joint, factory engineered details and complete assembly drawings, provides a complete and affordable pre-engineered "System."
The Acoustic/Thermal enclosures have a multitude of applications. Not just for the standard built up air handling units we all think of, but also applications such as; clean rooms, jet engine test cells, extended plenums, material handling enclosures, supply/return chase plenums, mixing plenums, and more.
Our team of noise control experts will customize SEMCO products from concept to fabrication, addressing the impact of all the phases of the project. SEMCO sound absorbers include a complete line of rectangular, round, and oval duct silencers, plus plenum silencers for control of airborne noise. SEMCO equipment enclosure panels are designed for superior acoustical, structural and thermal performance.
The ASCENDANT Series is ideal for hospital operating rooms, archival and dry storage, hotel/condo buildings, and other applications requiring low dew point temperatures and supply air humidity levels as low as 15 grains. ASCENDANT operates without the need for exhaust heat recovery, a feature making it ideal for applications requiring 100-percent outdoor air when exhaust air is unavailable for collection. ASCENDANT affirms SEMCO's goal of delivering the best indoor air quality and performance, while maximizing energy efficiency.
The heart of this system is a technologically advanced True 3A desiccant wheel. In addition to providing superior performance, the wheel's 3A molecular sieve-desiccant coating is selective in what it adsorbs from an exhaust air stream. The desiccant rejects airborne contaminants while it transfers water vapor, thus providing total energy transfer from the exhaust to the supply air stream. Selectivity allows True 3A to be used in critical applications, including recovery from contaminated air streams.
Each eQ is equipped with a SEMCO 3A enthalpy recovery wheel which provides high latent recovery balanced with pressure drop. This allows for a reduced chiller/boiler plant size and a lower connected load.
The Pinnacle economically provides high quantities of outdoor air while simultaneously controlling indoor humidity levels. It accomplishes this by dehumidifying the supply air to very low dew points in an energy-efficient manner, without the use of a regeneration heating source. Outdoor air is continuously delivered to the occupied space while simultaneously controlling humidity levels at the conditions recommended by ASHRAE, even at part-load conditions.
Utilizing the strengths of total energy recovery, conventional cooling technology, and a new class of desiccant product, the passive dehumidification wheel, the Pinnacle provides the best possible outdoor air preconditioning system.
Unlike traditional run around coil units, Econet uses minimal components for air transfer, resulting in a more energy efficient and environmentally friendly solution to your air quality needs.
An FV-TS pre-conditioner will significantly reduce the operating cost of the HVAC system of a facility designed in accordance with the ASHRAE IAQ standard. It will also improve humidity control when combined with unitary heating and cooling equipment. Because the FV-TS preconditions the incoming air to the packaged equipment, the required refrigeration capacity may be reduced by as much as 50 percent. Thus, the cost of the pre-conditioner and its installation are typically offset by the reduced size of the conventional HVAC system.
In existing facilities, retrofitting the HVAC system with an FV-TS pre-conditioner allows the outdoor air quantity to be increased significantly without raising energy costs, losing humidity control, or changing the size of the current HVAC unit.
The SEMCO Economizer is a step ahead of the competition by combining a high-efficiency ERV with an advanced integrated economizer capability in compliance with ASHRAE 90.1 - 2013. All models are designed with true 100% outdoor economizer airflow capability, the lowest overall fan energy, and the highest total energy wheel efficiency to improve system EERs and minimize installed cooling/heating/humidification capacities. Each model also contains advanced controls interlocking compressors with economizer modulation, advanced differential enthalpy control for optimum energy savings and space humidity control.
The Economizer features low-leak dampers (<3 CFM/sq. ft), proper separation of intake and exhaust, and the lowest fan energy in the industry. With SEMCO Economizer and an FV-T, or SP enthalpy recovery ventilation system, you will reduce operating costs while improving indoor air quality.
LYRA II diffuses air in 4 directions. This gives a high cooling capacity as well as a high level of comfort. Like all SEMCO active chilled beams, it provides comfort with low air velocities in the room by mixing the supply air with the ambient air. With SEMCO chilled beams system, you will also reduce your investment and operating costs.
Brings comfort thanks to low and silent diffusion:
NEUTON is a factory-built and pre-tested CCBPM package complete with its own powered integrated direct digital controller, chilled and hot water connections, valves, variable-speed electronically commutated motor (ECM) pumps, smart sensors, and other unique features. The device provides active condensation control effectively addressing one of the key design concerns regarding active chilled beams.
Silencer models are specifically designed to reduce noise in specific octave bands or across a wide range of noise levels. They are available in either a rectangular or round configuration, including straight flow models. They come in a wide range of performances and materials, and are available for either exterior or interior applications.
