About GREEN3 Technology
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”
Arthur C. Clarke
MSP®Presents GREEN3 Technology
The Next Generation of Green Dehumidification
The United States Green Building Council defines a green product as fulfilling one or more of the following five categories:
- Indoor environmental quality
- Energy efficiency
- Water savings
- Materials selection
- Sustainable site development
The MSP® Dehumidifying Coil fits comfortably into three of these categories:
- Indoor environmental quality (IAQ): The MSP® Dehumidifying Coil provides adequate ventilation and controlled humidity, giving building occupants a comfortable and healthy environment.
- Energy efficiency: The MSP® Dehumidifying Coil consumes significantly less energy than baseline products.
- Water savings: Water runoff from condensation is significant and can be used for irrigation and flush water.
The subscript in the term “GREEN3” describes the number of categories that are eligible for green building points. MSP’s wrap-around plate dehumidifier offers the industry’s highest efficiency and lowest energy consumption, whether it is used for dehumidifying makeup air or recirculated air, and is eligible for USGBC LEED®* credits in at least 3 of the above mentioned categories. * LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
How It Works
MSP® Patented Dehumidification Technology
STEP 1: Warm, humid incoming air (T1) flows through the first pass of the plate heat exchangers for initial pre-cooling, condensation and dehumidification. This is accomplished by regenerative thermal exchange with the cooler air that is leaving the heat exchanger. (See step 3)
Advantage: 80% Pre-cooling, condensation and dehumidification by regenerative thermal exchange is “free” and involves no additional equipment. MSP has no moving parts and is driven by either chilled water or refrigeration systems.
Comparison: Traditional Dehumidifiers “require” a refrigeration system and has no precooling and therefore no energy savings.
STEP 2: Pre-cooled air (T2) then passes twice over conventional cooling coils for final cooling, condensation and dehumidification.
Advantage: Pre-cooling reduces the energy load on the cooling coil so condensation and dehumidification are achieved at a low rate of energy consumption, using smaller compressors that require as little as one-half the power.
Comparison: Traditional dehumidifier has no precooling and therefore no energy savings.
STEP 3: The cool, condensed and dehumidified air (T3) is drawn through the opposite side of the heat exchanger where it is heated by transfer with incoming air (see step 1) and advances to the building’s HVAC system.
Advantage: No heating coil—and no energy penalty—needed to heat the dehumidified air before it enters the conditioned environment. Heating, dehumidification and water generation are accomplished with the lowest possible operating cost.
Comparison: Traditional dehumidifier uses hot gas reheating which requires a refrigeration system. MSP, on the other hand will operate effectively with chilled water or refrigeration.
