February 13, 2018

The new models exceed 50 to 60% total energy recovery effectiveness with 0.5% cross-contamination.

minicoreTwo new Minicore energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) from Ruskin, the enERVent models MCV500 and MCV1000, exceed 50 to 60% total energy recovery effectiveness with 0.5% cross-contamination.

Both models feature a compact 16-inch chassis – ideal for ceilings and small spaces – and a hydroscopic resin energy recovery core with no moving parts for maintenance savings and long-lasting comfort.

The heat exchanger technology also exceeds ASHRAE 90.1 standards to accommodate future governmental regulations. The ERVs are also AHRI 1060-certified.

Both models span a wide range of airflow needs, from 300 to 1,200 CFM, and include Johnson Controls Metasys controls with BACnet as options.

ECM options provide soft starts, overload and locked rotor protection, thermal projection and easy RPM adjustment. The ERVs also deliver improved indoor air quality and ideal temperature and humidity levels while preventing the recirculation of odors and irritants.

Mold and bacteria resistance is tested to ISO 846a and 846c, with a rating of 0 for both.

The Ruskin Minicore ERVs design ensures effective transfer of heat or water vapor while selectively blocking gases, contaminants, odors and VOCs.

The design also features a patented high-performance water-washable polymer membrane and MAP gateway that enables performance tracking and adjustments via mobile devices or desktops.
