According to Brink it comes with some “exciting” technologies including highly efficient EC constant flow fans, fitted with rotating vane anemometers, TFT colour touchscreen for easy programming, 100 per cent bypass, guided vanes for equal airflow over the whole heat exchanger, condensate connection, with special ball syphon included and a pre-heater with a larger surface and new aerodynamic design.
This passive house certified unit is available from CVC Systems (recently rebranded from CVC Direct), Brink’s official UK supplier.
Brink Climate Systems has used constant flow fans in its MVHR units since 1990 and employs software that monitors changes to airflow in its systems. This adjusts the fan speeds accordingly, ensuring that the dwelling is ventilated at the correct rate, with the fans working at optimum efficiency and airflows equally balanced.
The constant flow fans in the Brink Flair 225 MVHR unit have been manufactured to Brink’s specifications and provide an accurate control of the airflow. This is achieved using an anemometer fitted to the discharge tube of each fan which enables a fast and very precise response to airflow requirements. The integrated digital programmer enables a system to be commissioned easily, with balanced airflows (as an unbalanced system can swiftly lose thermal efficiency, and cause pressure differences between the internal and external environments).
The Brink Flair 225 includes the same proven heat exchanger used on the rest of the Flair family with vanes guiding the airflow over the whole surface area of the heat exchanger. This design feature provides a laminar airflow to the heat exchanger, giving an even distribution of air through the heat exchanger for higher thermal efficiency and lower pressure loss (Pa).
The Brink Flair 225 is tested and listed on SAP Appendix Q and is certified by the Passive House Institute. CVC Systems is the sole UK supplier of Brink passive house-certified products.
