View Performance Data FPCOA/FDCOA

The Price FDCOA is a Series Flow Fan Powered terminal unit specifically designed for operation with a Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS). In this configuration the DOAS air handler is selected to dehumidify and condition the outdoor air as well as to handle the space latent load. The primary valve of the FDCOA terminal is supplied from the DOAS and controls the amount of fresh air to the space. A cooling coil mounted to the return air inlet is selected to handle the space sensible cooling load. An optional MERV 3, 8, or 13 filter is available for enhanced indoor air quality. For zones requiring heat an optional electric or hot water coil is available. The FDCOA is supplied as standard with an energy efficient ECM motor programmed with the Price Enersave constant flow program to compensate for filter loading.

The Price FDCOA terminal offers substantial benefits over a conventional VAV system. Hydronic cooling is far more efficient than delivering cooled air to a zone and chilled water piping takes up a fraction of the space of ductwork. By taking care of the space sensible load with the FDCOA cooling coil the DOAS air handler can be sized to deliver only the airflow required for ventilation and latent loads. This air flow reduction results in a smaller HVAC system which translates into fan energy savings. A smaller HVAC footprint and ductwork can also reduce floor heights or increase leasable space. Decoupling the sensible and latent loads ensures proper humidity control at each zone. Additionally the exact outdoor air requirements to each zone can be maintained, eliminating over ventilation and ensuring compliance with ASHRAE 62. Further energy savings can be realized if a Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) strategy is utilized.

Typical FDCOA installation
Perimeter slot diffusers and chilled beams
* The sensible cooling coil is intended for dry operation only.
Entering water temperature must be above plenum dewpoint to prevent condensation on the coil (typically 55-57° F).
A drip pan is provided to contain any condensation that inadvertently may occur if space humidity control is temporary compromised.
