RCS-Air -Vane Boost® Eliminates Condenser Air By-Pass for Air Cooling HVAC

Vane Boost is a revolutionary method of overcoming condenser air by-pass. Air-cooled packaged rooftop HVAC units, refrigeration systems, and chillers consume increasing amounts of energy as the ambient temperature rises as well as suffering from reduced cooling capacity.

The technology changes simple axial fans into a vane axial format.

Vane Boost is a revolutionary method of overcoming condenser air by-pass. This is a problem with poorly installed HVAC+R systems. Vane Boost changes the direction of air flow into a straight path exiting the condenser which eliminates air by-pass.  The Vane Boost technology changes simple axial (propeller) fans into a vane axial format. Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the concept, a great deal of science has gone into the development of this technology which delivers outstanding results in terms of HVAC+R performance. 

Installing the Vane Boost unit on top of condenser fan outlets will assist in preventing the short cycling of heated condenser air to condenser coil inlets, and dramatically increase the amount of condenser exhaust air. Energy use is reduced by 15-20% along with increased peak ambient capacity.
