ACBC - Floor Mounted Active Beam
The Floor Mounted Price Active Beam, ACBC, is an exposed perimeter unit suitable for office spaces, schools, hotels, lobbies, or any application where occupant comfort demands are high. The upper portion of the ACBC induces room air to pass through a heat exchanger and mix with the primary air. The mixed air is then discharged evenly from the lower portion of the ACBC across a louvered or perforated face at a low velocity. During cooling, the cool air flows down to the floor and spreads across the occupied space. During heating, the warm air rises and will heat the perimeter. The ACBC can be used as a standalone product or can be connected in series by interlocking plenums with other ACBC units to create a continuous look.
- 2- or 4-pipe configuration
- Heavy gauge face
- Quiet operation
- Internally painted black to hide internal elements
- Pressure port for air-side balancing and flow verification
