MJC Provides ERV Upgrades for a Local Fire House

erv-1At MJC, it is our goal to create the perfect commercial HVAC system that meets the needs of those who reach out to us. Our years of experience, knowledge and a willingness to try something unique mean that we can take a basic HVAC system and reconfigure it to function in a way that works better than ever. Consequently, we have been a part of the upgrade process for numerous businesses.

Recently, an area firehouse reached out to us about making changes to their heating and air unit. Their current system was a 5 Ton Trane Split System, and while this is a great HVAC system, it was still not what they needed to meet their specifications. Because of our knowledge of heating and air units, the MJC team was able to redesign the Trane system and make their standard factory split system a fully custom design, complete with energy recovery capabilities, which can compete with an Aaon 100% OA Unit!

Offerings Provided by MJC:

1.       Energy Recovery Unit Built onto the AHU. Specific duct connections required for Top RA and Bottom OA

2.       ERV & AHU built onto a common base frame

3.       MJC provided VFD on the Factory Supply Fan

4.       Hot Gas Reheat to meet LAT

5.       MJC Added 50MBH Heater / Heat section on top of the AHU for top supply

6.       APR Rawal Valve installed on the Trane CU for capacity control

7.       Entire ERV & AHU wired for single pt power.

Setting MJC apart from other commercial HVAC manufacturers is that we offer elements and system redesigns specific to you. This customization can be done through a variety of approaches. One such offering is the MJC ePlate heat exchanger which has features such as no moving parts, a compact and lightweight design, outstanding corrosion resistant and being compatible with high temperature applications, and plate and frame heat exchangers.  These features mean that our systems are the best energy recovery solution available.

However, the ePlate is not our only energy recovery approach to customizing a commercial HVAC system. Other choices include the following:

·         Energy Recovery Wheels that uses air-to-air recovery technology

·         MJC Enthalpy Plate energy exchanger that combines the latest in energy recovery technology with a polymer desiccant

·          Sensible Plate Energy Recovery system that offers features such as no moving parts, little to no maintenance costs, separate air streams and a lightweight, compact design.

With so many options for designing a heating and air system that suits the needs of a business, it is no wonder that so many companies have asked us for help!

Data / Computer Room – Case Study

case studyIn  business, there are many things one must consider to be successful.  From being sure to maintain the budget to doing our part to minimize our footprint on the environment and ensuring that employees have a workplace that allows them to be productive, it is important to look for ways that can help your company be effective as well as efficient. After all, it is in taking actions to build success that result in a company not just appreciated by those who work for you, but in gaining the approval from those within your industry.

One such way that MJC helps companies be successful is by helping them create a comfortable work environment. This is done through implementing HVAC systems designed to work with their needs, while still making as little environmental impact as possible. Recently, we were approached by a well-known, national communications company to maximize their computer room’s workspace, while minimizing the amount of noise their existing HVAC system produced, however, the changes needed to keep their company’s footprint from increasing.

Our Solution:

After an assessment of the facility to see how their current HVAC system was set up, we had a plan. We then collaborated with a major HVAC manufacturer, which resulted in a commercial split system. The MJC team built the AHU portion of the job, designing a unit that moved the noise caused by the compressors to be moved to another location away from the work area.

This innovative design used stacked plenum fans and a V-bank coil configuration. In taking this approach, MJC was able to double the capacity of the units without increasing the footprint. A definite win for all those involved. So, how did we do it? Here’s how.

The MJC Unit Design:

·         15,000 CFM

·         (3) 5,000 CFM Direct Drive Plenum Fans – VFD on each Fan

·         40 Tons DX Cooling

·         Custom UL electrical enclosure

·         Modular Retrofit Construction, which made it possible for modules to be able to fit through a standard door

As HVAC specialist with many years of experience in creating custom systems, we were happy to take on this assignment and design a system to meet these parameters. The MJC team was happy to partner with another HVAC specialist to design a system that did exactly what the client wanted, and we look forward to many other custom projects. If you need a customized HVAC system for your commercial location, we want to be a part of the solution. Give us a call today to learn how we can take your HVAC problems and turn them into productive solutions.
