AIRFLOW & ZONE CONTROLS
Zone Control Terminals are designed to introduce flexibility and dynamic control to central ventilation systems. Used in both large and small systems, the ZRT regulates ventilation without the need for individual fans. Each ZRT is a combination grille, register box, control damper, and optional flow regulator(s). This unique combination provides up to four different control schemes without the need for expensive pneumatic, electronic, or DDC control systems.
By replacing static grilles in large central exhaust systems, the ZRT-1 model provides on-off control for on-demand ventilation. This allows central fan downsizing and promotes energy savings by minimizing necessary fan horsepower and ventilation-induced heating and cooling loads on the building. The optional model CAR-II Constant Airflow Regulator can be installed in the ZRT-1’s extended duct collar to place a maximum flow limit on each terminal. Automatic operation of the CAR-II will prevent noise and excessive energy consumption caused by over-ventilation, as well as fluctuations in airflow rates as total system pressure varies.
The ZRT-2 model can also be used for combination low-flow indoor air quality ventilation and on-demand high-flow spot ventilation using the same central fan system. This is achieved by integrating a CAR-II minimum airflow controller directly into the damper sub-assembly. With the damper completely closed, the factory-calibrated CAR-II will still allow steady low continuous ventilation during fan operation (consult the CAR-II specifications sheet for sizing and specifying information). When other ZRT terminals are opened for on-demand control of spot ventilation, the closed ZRT-2s will maintain the specified low continuous rate through the CAR-II minimum flow control. By opening the ZRT-2’s control damper, the low-flow regulator is removed from the air stream, allowing either controlled (optional using a second CAR-II) or full maximum-boost ventilation.
ZRT-1 is specified by Marriott Hotels for guest room ventilation. It is allow to save energy once room is not occupied.
