Experts in Building Environments™
The Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin, Texas, required an air handling solution for their 6,500 sq. ft. MRI operating suite that could meet the stringent environmental requirements for a surgical room.
In addition to the strict ventilation requirements, the air handling solution needed to meet the redundancy, reliability and acoustic standards necessary for a surgical operating room, while taking future capacity needs into account.
A Temtrol® brand Custom Air Handler with FANWALL TECHNOLOGY®, which provides built-in redundancy and quiet performance, was used to provide ventilation to the operating suite.
Unit with four direct-drive fans, each for supply and return, produces 12,000 cfm with 3,000 cfm backup capacity–enough to support the day-to-day air handling of the operating room addition and supply 100% of the area’s future needs, all housed in a compact, 31′ x 7′ x 6′ footprint.
