Semco LLC introduced the Ascendant series, a conventional cooling and active desiccant dehumidification hybrid system with regeneration input at what the company says is the HVAC industry’s lowest installation and operation costs. Available in five standard models, this series is ideal for hospital operating room, archival and dry storage, hotel/condo buildings, and other applications requiring low dew-point temperatures and supply air humidity levels, the manufacturer says. The Ascendant design can operate as a partial or dedicated outdoor air system, or as a true variable air volume unit. Compared to conventional mechanical DX or chiller systems, an Ascendant provides up to three times more dehumidification capacity, achieves dew point temperatures as low as 20°F and uses up to 60 percent less cooling input, company officials say.
