HVAC Industry Loses Forrest Fencl, Ultraviolet Treatment Pioneer
Forrest B. Fencl, chief executive and co-founder of UV Resources, passed away on Saturday, August 1, at his home after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 72 years old.
A lifelong inventor and respected industry leader, Mr. Fencl pioneered the modern application of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UV-C) in HVAC&R equipment, writing or co-writing 17 patents and several American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Handbook chapters related to ultraviolet air and surface treatment.
UV Resources Redesigns Website, Launches Mobile App Offering Enhanced Project-Planning and Product-Selection Features
A new website and mobile application from UV Resources is designed to help contractors, engineers and users properly size Ultraviolet (UV-C) surface irradiance systems. The easy-to-use UV Select™ sizing App (available for both Android and IOS systems) uses application specific measurements to generate UV-C design recommendations that comply with ASHRAE guidelines for Ultraviolet Surface Treatment. Simply input the height and width of an air handler’s coil and plenum, and the App calculates the appropriate requirements and cost.
UV-Com Control Panel Monitors Multiple Ultraviolet (UV) fixtures
The UV-Com™ Control Panel from UV Resources provides a convenient means of monitoring multiple Ultraviolet “C” (UV-C) fixtures installed in individual air handling units (AHUs).
Small but Mighty: Stinger 24V UV-C Light System Ideal for 3-ton-or-smaller Commercial HVAC Units
The Stinger UV-C fixture from UV Resources is designed to efficiently destroy surface microbes and organic materials that impede HVAC system efficiency, as well as contribute to allergies, poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), and airborne-transmitted disease. Because the low voltage unit mounts from the exterior and requires no interior unit access, the Stinger UV-C lamp series is ideal for hard-to-access HVAC equipment up to 5 tons.
New Upper Air Germicidal UV-C Light Fixture Offers Industry’s Highest Ultraviolet Dosage to Destroy Airborne Viruses & Bacteria
The High-Output GLO™ Upper Air Germicidal UV Fixture from UV Resources provides the industry’s most Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) energy fluence, or dosage, in its class without additional power, heat or special UV lamps. The patent-pending unit delivers up to 350 percent more output and coverage than conventional upper air UV systems. This increase in irradiance coverage translates to fewer units required, which results in substantial savings. Fixtures are pending UL approval and carry a three-year fixture and one-year lamp warranties.
