Reznor supplied gas-fired unit heaters and destratification fans for the internal spaces of a new-build fire station in Sambreville, Belgium.
The building incorporates operation, administrative, technical and logistic services and required a flexible, energy-efficient heating system.
In the main hall, Techniterm installed three Reznor RHeco 50 gas-fired unit heaters. Two RHeco 25 unit heaters were foreseen for the ambulance area and garage.
Reznor’s high efficiency RHeco is a unit heater with extremely low NOX and CO2-emissions: under 25 ppm; NOX class 5. These fully-condensing gas-fired heaters have a thermal efficiency of 109% NCV at partial load and 100% at full load.
To further improve the efficiency of the warm air heating system, six Reznor destratification fans push risen warm air from the space under the roof back to the ground level. By recirculating air, temperature gradients are reduced. With destratification fans, energy loss through the roof is avoided, and warm-up time will be significantly reduced.
“The building fully meets customer requirements in terms of comfort as well as for energy efficiency”, according to Valentin Hauthot of CSD Ingénieurs. “What’s more, it is the first low energy fire station of its kind.”
