The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany–State University of New York (SUNY) is a global education, research, development and technology deployment resource in nanotechnology. Ventrol supplied a sectional rooftop air handler for a cleanroom installation on campus in 2012.
The unit was originally designed as a knock-down rooftop unit because access to the roof was limited due to the crane pick. Helicopter lifts were ruled out due to a nearby operating chip fab building that couldn’t shut down. The contractor found a crane with a large enough reach to lift the smaller sections of the Ventrol air handler onto the roof curb.
