A challenge facing today’s HVAC engineer is how to meet ASHRAE Standard 62, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality, while conserving valuable energy resources needed to condition that outdoor air. LOREN COOK COMPANY’s Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) provides an economical solution to this design challenge. The ERV offers a wide performance range, high pressure capabilities, and high energy recovery efficiencies. This product delivers where it counts most - first cost savings, performance efficiencies, durability, and easy maintenance. The Cook ERV is available in two direct drive sizes and eight belt drive sizes ranging from 500 to 10,000 cfm.

The primary component of the ERV is a durable, rotating enthalpy wheel. The wheel features a spirally wound, fluted air channel design providing ultra low pressure drop and eliminates lateral leakage within the wheel. The mass provided by the 4” wheel depth allows for excellent sensible heat transfer. The manufacturing process used to create the wheel media is unique to the industry, allowing synthetic absorption type desiccant to be combined with synthetic fiber substrate while it is still a liquid. This process distributes a much higher volume of desiccant throughout the media, not just on the surface, resulting in excellent latent heat transfer. This also assures that the media will not suffer any degradation in adsorption performance during its long and trouble free operating lifetime.

Standard Construction Features

  • Wheel media is constructed of a unique fluted synthetic fiber-based media impregnated with a non-migrating water selective 4 angstrom (Å) molecular sieve desiccant (typical flute size is 6 mils).
  • The cassette assembly consists of an energy recovery wheel, drive motor, and drive components which include pulleys, belts and bearings. The cassette assembly slides out for easy access Supply and Exhaust Blower Assemblies All blowers are centrifugal forward curved type with painted steel housings. The wheels are balanced in accordance with AMCA Standard 204-96, Balance Quality and Vibration Levels for Fans.
  • The cabinet is constructed of minimum 18 gauge galvanized steel panels bolted to a minimum 16 gauge galvanized steel base. The entire cabinet is insulated with 1” thick, 3 lb. density, foil faced insulation. A hinged door is provided for access to the electrical control panel. Removable doors are provided for access to all other internal components.
  • Filters are furnished in both the supply and exhaust airstreams. Standard 2” thick, 30 percent efficient pleated filters are utilized to maintain the efficiency of the energy recovery wheel. Air performance data includes the initial pressure drop of the air filters.
  • All internal electrical components are pre-wired for single-point power connection. Control panel is UL listed with hinged access door and interlocking NEMA 3R disconnect switch. Control panel is standard on belt drive units & optional on direct drive units.
