Abstract
A next generation of Fan Coil Units (FCU) is proposed which utilize an intermediate temperature water supply at 68 F to meet HVAC heating and cooling loads on ships. These new next generation FCU will require active cooling (vapor compression cycles). Mezzo Technologies fabricates high performance micro tube heat exchangers. Mezzo, along with its partner Marlo Corporation, propose to design new, high performance FCU that take adavantage of the attributes of the micro tube heat exchangers. Specifically, new FCU will include micro tube condensers and evaporators which will be compact, light weight, and most importantly, will have very low noise due to the low air pressure drop inherent in Mezzo's products. They will also be easy to maintain, and rugged. The expectaion exists that the partnership of Mezzo and Marlo Coil will be able to design and fabricate FCU with substantial performance enhancements while utilizing efficiently the 68 F heat sink.
