Modine Manufacturing Unveils High Efficiency Condensing/ Hybrid And Propane Heating

RACINE, Wis., Dec. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Modine Manufacturing Company (NYSE: MOD), a leader in technology in the HVAC industry, has announced the release of the new condensing/hybrid and propane heat options for the Atherion® Commercial Packaged Ventilation units.

Modine Manufacturing releases new propane and condensing/hybrid heating options for Atherion® Commercial Packaged Ventilation unit.

Designed for expanded installation flexibility and increased heating efficiency for maximized utility savings in cold northern climates, the Atherion Model MPR is the ideal solution to effectively and efficiently meet the challenge of heating high volumes of outside air for ventilation.

Condensing/Hybrid Heat Options on D-Cabinet
The D-Cabinet natural gas heat option has been expanded to include several condensing (90+% efficiency) options, as well as hybrid options. A hybrid option is a higher BTU per hour rated option that combines standard 81% efficient furnaces with condensing furnaces in a stacked configuration. This gives the advantage of condensing efficiency during all heat load conditions while only enabling the standard efficiency furnaces during peak load periods, therefore maximizing gas savings over the heating season.

Some specifics on the new options include:

  • Two condensing and four hybrid ratings, as shown below.
  • High air temperature rise capability, up to 120 F to deal with those frigid northern climates.
  • Wide system modulation ranges allow high air temperatures to capably temper very cold design outside air conditions, while having significant turndown to maintain excellent control during mild conditions.

“Northern winters place a significant strain on heating units and utility budgets,” said Mike Schires, senior product manager at Modine Manufacturing. “The condensing and hybrid heat options are a unique technology that Modine offers to meet those challenging ventilation air heating requirements while offering significant savings in gas consumption. This saves money and can result in very short payback periods, not to mention it reduces carbon footprint.”

Propane (LP) Gas Heat Options
In addition to the condensing/hybrid Heat options, the product line now is available with propane heat options (81% thermal efficiency) to compliment the already wide range of natural gas and electric heat options.
