Rapid Engineering – Natural Gas
Air management systems for heating, ventilating and cooling industrial facilities. Systems include high efficiency heating, slight building pressurization, ductless air distribution and the easiest-to-use DDC facility management system available.
- Direct-fired Heating
Rapid Engineering, Inc. pioneered the development of Air Management Systems using direct-fired heating more than 35 years ago. Today the 2000 and 4000 Series air handlers efficiently establish and maintain a slightly pressurized condition in your facility as they gently temper outdoor air and, as appropriate, mix it with existing indoor air.
Series 4000 Benefits
The RAPID® 4000-Series is a customizable direct-fired heating, cooling and pressurization system. Available from 5,000-150,000 CFM, the units are available in four different air styles- MUA (100% outside air with a fixed discharge air volume), FR (fixed 80% return air / 20% outside air with a fixed discharge air volume), AM (modulating return air / outside air with a fixed discharge air volume) and VAV (100% outside air with a variable discharge air volume). These four different air styles, along with the availability of evaporative cooling, mechanical cooling, post-cooling reheat and a wide variety of accessories, make these units extremely flexible and able to meet a wide variety of heating and cooling needs.
Series 2000 Benefits
The RAPID® 2000-Series is a line of direct-fired air handlers capable of heating, cooling and pressurization. The units are available in four air styles: MUA (100% outside air with a constant discharge air volume), AM (modulating outside/return air with a constant discharge air volume), FR (fixed 20% outside/80% return air with a constant discharge air volume) and VAV (100% outside air with a variable discharge air volume). All models and styles are available in upright or horizontal as well as indoor or outdoor configurations.
Evaporative cooling is the most cost-effective method for reducing heat buildup and maintaining lower summertime temperatures in industrial and commercial buildings. A 4000 Series Air Management System with optional evaporative cooling provides heat, ventilation and cooling—all in one economical package.
Intelligent Controls are the nerve center of the air management system. They give the building operator a direct link to all RAPID 4000 Series air handlers, providing a simple, effective means of operation. Each air handler is controlled by a microprocessor-based “Intelligent Controller” that communicates via an IBM compatible computer with RAPID’S “Intelligent Control Software.” Maintenance personnel can also hook a laptop PC directly into the air handler to perform diagnostics and service.
