The Susurro heat recovery unit

The new Susurro, a ceiling mounted heat recovery unit from Airflow Developments, has been designed to provide continuous decentralised ventilation for office environments.

Featuring a new generation of efficient, energy saving and ultra-quiet technologies that meet all the necessary regulations, Susurro provides facilities managers with a hassle-free option to achieve fresh and healthy indoor air quality.

A multitude of key features makes Susurro a high performance ventilation option for new and existing buildings. With an aluminium cross counter flow heat exchanger, the unit has a heat recovery efficiency of up to 90%. In accordance with the ErP Ecodesign Directive, Susurro features a 100% summer bypass facility to prevent heat recovery from taking place in hot weather - reducing the risk of overheating.

Its capillary tube system at the air outlet enhances the Coanda effect to ensure that fresh air is supplied into the room near the ceiling. This supply air mixes with the ambient air before slowly descending into the room; avoiding any uncomfortable draughts for building occupants.

Susurro has aa noise level of just 35 dB(A) at nominal air flow, the units can contribute positively to an environment that aids concentration and productivity.

John Kelly at Airflow Developments said: “Our new Susurro heat recovery unit delivers a highly efficient, low energy, low noise heat recovery unit that can make a positive difference to the wellbeing of office workers.”
