Frenger are proud to have supplied both our 'Exposed' X-Wing® Radiant Passive Chilled Beams and wall-mounted Radiant Cooling Panels to the Central Analytical Research Facility (CARF) Instrument Lab located at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Gardens Point Campus in Queensland, Australia. The project involved the refurbishment of an existing office space within level 1 of M Block, to accommodate a new specialist lab facility housing two new flagship analytical instruments.
The lab caters for specially commissioned electron microscopes and our solutions were provided to ensure the laboratory complied with the stringent climate, vibration, and electromagnetic interference tolerances. The final installation is proof of an exceptional quality solution providing a highly specialized laboratory facility for the QUT Institute of Future Environments.
Frenger's range of 'Radiant' Passive Chilled Beams are mounted below the ceiling to deliver higher cooling outputs within the laboratory. Our X-Wing® 'Radiant' Passive Chilled Beams have a 40% radiant cooling quotient to provide an efficient means of cooling the room whilst maintaining very low air movement and low noise operation within the space. As our X-Wing® product is mounted at high level this offers the opportunity to utilise the walls of the room for acoustic absorption whilst having a separate displacement ventilation system to provide dehumidification.
Our X-Wing® product is constructed from copper and aluminium and is 100 percent recyclable. The copper coil is produced by Frenger's in house fully automated bespoke "state of the art" full CNC serpentine bending machine. This produces seamless sinusoidal copper coils (without any joints in the product, hence no risk of water leakage) up to 6m in length, with up to 12 water passes at 70mm tube centres. The aluminium radiant "wings" are produced in house by bespoke power press and roll forming machines, all of which are then assembled by Frenger's fully automated CNC controlled machine which mechanically bonds the "radiant wings" to be in metal to metal contact with the seamless copper waterways.
In additional to the above, Frenger also supplied their Wall Mounted Radiant Panels, which are constructed from copper and aluminium, and are 100 percent recyclable.
