Luvata presents its new software for the design of air handling unit heat exchangers
(8 January 2013). Luvata announces the launch of Easy Coil, its new software for the configuration of heat exchangers in air handling units (AHU). Available January 2013, Easy Coil provides AHU operators with a reliable tool for the layout and design of the heat exchangers most suitable for their specific AHU application.
Easy Coil customizes the dimensions to meet the client’s unique needs, while enabling the design of the heat exchanger with complete independence thanks to its user-friendly, intuitive interfaces. Easy Coil users can freely choose the product’s thermodynamic and structural parameters and it gives an optimized output based upon the client’s specific requirements. Selecting from countless structural choices, materials, configurations and combinations thereof, the corresponding sketches can immediately be produced, delivering a clear reduction of lead times.
Easy Coil can be integrated into an AHU builder’s configurations and assists users that might miss specific know-how in the design of heat exchangers. Easy Coil is superior to similar products available on the market because the calculation of its thermodynamic parameters are not derived from theoretical calculations, but based on decades of lab and field tests performed by Luvata. This expertise has been included in Easy Coil, helping customers to choose the best exchange surfaces - that can even meet AHRI certification requirements.
“The Easy Coil name summarizes the mission that we had while developing this tool,” indicates Armando Pretto, Luvata Product Manager for the AHU segment. “Easy Coil drastically reduces design time and it supplies all of the required information, including price, to the client. This, along with shortened lead times and close proximity, are advantages we believe our clients will find valuable.”
The new Easy Coil software is intended for the EMEA market and is currently available in Italian, English, French and German. Later versions will be released in the other languages and include the options for the selection of evaporating and condensing exchangers along with heat pump versions.
