In heating applications, this technique can be utilized advantageously to convey heat from the ceiling in a better way and attain good comfort in the occupied zone. A comfort module differs from a climate beam by distributing air in four directions instead of two. This maximizes the area for the mixture of supply air with the room air, which enables you to take out a high capacity, but without occupying more ceiling space than necessary.
4 way Comfort Modules provide full coverage vs. 2 way chilled beams

Swegon PARASOL comfort modules have 4-way air discharge airflow with induction function. PARASOL comfort modules are active type using the primary air to induce room air through a coil to heat or cool the space without the need for fans. This delivers very quiet operation and minimal maintenance requirements. Unlike a 2-way air discharge chilled beam, air distribution to the room occurs from all 4 sides of the unit providing excellent mixing to all parts of the room. 

This ensures comfort level throughout the occupied zone. The PARASOL comfort modules are designed for dry systems, i.e. without condensation and therefore do not require any condensate drainage system or any filter. The minimum number of moving parts and lack of filter guarantees very little need for maintenance. 

The PARASOL comfort modules are also optimized to quickly mix the discharge air with room air providing better comfort in the room. In cooling applications, this technique can be advantageously utilized to efficiently provide cooling from the ceiling. The PARASOL comfort modules are available in three basic variants:

Variant A: Primary air and water-based cooling from a coil (2 pipes)

Variant B: Primary air and water-based cooling and heating from the coil (4 pipes)

Variant C: Primary air only utilizing the PARASOL’s 4-way diffuser to mix additional ventilation air into space.

Variant C: Primary air only utilizing the PARASOL’s 4-way diffuser to mix additional ventilation air into space.

The PARASOL comfort modules operate according to the induction principle. Primary air (A) from the air handling unit provides PARASOL with supply air via a supply air duct and builds up positive pressure in the unit’s plenum. The supply air is forced out at high speed through nozzles (PARASOL Classic) or small slots (PARASOL Zenith). The high speed means that the surrounding air is drawn in and mixed with supply air, which generates negative pressure above the unit’s integrated heat exchanger (C). Room air (D) is continuously drawn up from the room through the water-based heat exchanger where, if necessary, it is cooled or heated before it mixes with the supply air.

The mixed air is then distributed to the room via aerodynamically designed outlets. The outlets are designed to ensure that the distributed air follows the suspended ceiling by utilizing the Coanda Effect (E). The supplied air is then mixed with additional room air, which further lowers the air velocity and reduces the temperature difference before it reaches the occupied zone.

PARASOL Classic Nozzles

The unique built-in nozzle control in the PARASOL classic means that each of the four sides can be set individually. Depending on the unit’s location and the room’s primary air requirement, the primary air can be guided in all the desired direction. The direction of the airflow can be easily optimized using the Swegon ProSelect Sizing Program.

All units are preset to the same nozzle setting on all four sides. The airflow direction can be easily commissioned when installing the unit. This provides logistic advantages since the installer does not have to take specific room markings into account.

Each nozzle setting has a specific k-factor. There are four nozzle ranges (LF, MF, HF and PF) and each range has three nozzle settings.

A total k-factor for the unit can be determined by adding together the k-factors for the nozzle settings on each side. The relevant k-factor for an optimized nozzle setting can also be obtained in ProSelect.

Optimizing nozzle settings can be preset in the factory or field changed.

PARASOL Zenith provides unique advantages with its slot control and through this a large working range on the airside. PARASOL Zenith is designed to handle a large airflow range in one model. This gives benefits such as easy sizing and a straightforward product upgrade path. PARASOL Zenith can be easily set to the required k-factor with the help of the knob located on the short side opposite the short side with water connections. A special strip can be field added to block off one of the sides if required.

ADC in PARASOL Zenith

Both PARASOL classic and Zenith include ADC as standard. ADC enables the diffusion pattern of the air being distributed to be set to avoid the risk of draught. ADC can also be used to reduce the throw length. By setting ADC to L-shape, the distance between two units can be reduced to a minimum and still ensure a good comfort level.

A number of ADC sections with nine air deflections per section are arranged on each side of the unit. Each section is adjustable from a straight setting to 40-degree air deflection to the right or left in increments of 10 degrees. This provides great flexibility and can be adjusted without having to affect the system as a whole.

The direction of the air can be easily adjusted and gives future-proofing, offering a simple measure on location for any change to the furnishings and layout. The ADC does not affect the sound level or static pressure at all

Multiple PARASOL VAV Comfort Module with File Mounted BMS Zone Controller

Increasing the voltage signal will open the nozzles and allow more primary air to pass through the comfort module. Being able to vary the primary airflow, chilled water flow and hot water flow to a control zone offers the maximum flexibility to deliver the best IEQ at the lowest energy cost. The primary airflow is typically varied to meet the most demanding requirement for:

  • Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) (CO2 level)
  • Thermal Comfort (Zone temperature)
  • Humidity Control (Hi humidity will increase primary airflow to dry the zone out)

 

When DCV chilled beams are used, the primary air system will be variable air flow.  The fans in the primary air handling unit will be variable and typically controlled by duct static pressure.  When there is  lower demand in the building and the DCV chilled beams reduce the primary airflow requirement, the primary  air handling unit will also reduce the flow offering significant energy savings through the year.

To provide stable air flow to a control zone, Swegon offers the React CU primary airflow sensor that can be used to measure the airflow entering the control zone. It can be used for a small zone with a single comfort module or a large space with multiple comfort modules. The React CU sensor is available for rectangular and round ducts.

Parasol VAV and REact CU e1603852422601 1 PARASOL is a complete product family. The comfort modules are optimized to quickly mix the supply air with the room air, which provides better comfort in the room. In heating applications, this technique can be utilized advantageously to convey heat from the ceiling in a better way and attain good comfort in the occupied zone. A comfort module differs from a climate beam by distributing air in four directions instead of two. This maximizes the area for the mixture of supply air with the room air, which enables you to take out a high capacity, but without occupying more ceiling space than necessary.
Multiple PARASOL VAV Comfort Modules in a Control Zone

The React CU sensor is connected to the BMS zone controller allowing the sensor to measure the primary air entering the control zone.  The BMS can then open or close the Comfort Module nozzles to maintain a constant primary airflow regardless of main duct static pressure.  This delivers true independent control to the space.
