DRI launches India’s first DOAS

Leading fresh air HVAC solutions provider DRI (Desiccant Rotors International) has launched India’s first revolutionary technology DOAS (Dedicated Outdoor Air System), the Ultima series. The launch will strengthen its leadership position across the industry through the launch of its breakthrough technology. The USP of Ultima – according to the company – is it’s highly energy efficient ventilation system which is designed to deliver conditioned fresh air.
The fresh air is delivered at lower dew points and desired temperature which enables decoupling of internal building loads and external loads. For green buildings, this system can assist in scoring substantial LEED points in conjunction with systems like chilled beams.
DRI’s Ultime series will enable delivery of conditioned fresh air in a very energy efficient manner, all year round. It is well suited to a wide array of applications in large commercial spaces like hotels, hospitals, supermarkets, auditoriums and corporate offices.
Salient features include:
Supply Air at perfectly controlled temperature and dew point, irrespective of outdoor ambient conditions
Versatile unitary design suited for almost any application without further customization
Fully automatic, micro-processor controlled operation using DRISMART EMS (Energy Management System).Can also be connected with the building management system through suitable communication protocol.
Utilizes energy available in room exhaust air for maximizing efficiency
DOAS allows designers the DAQ (Divide and Conquer) approach in which DOAS takes care of the fresh air and internal latent load. The parallel system takes care of the internal sensible load.
Applications include chilled beams and parallel systems (which separately cater for internal sensible load)
