Spelman College needed to replace its belt-driven fan in a hurry, but space constraints made it difficult. Mainstream delivered fast.
Spelman College is a private, historically Black, women’s liberal arts college. Founded in 1881 as the Atlanta Baptist Female Seminary, Spelman received its collegiate charter in 1924, making it America’s oldest private historically black liberal arts college for women. The college is now part of the Atlanta University Center academic consortium.
The fan requiring replacement was in a tight space with even tighter access. The client was considering replacing the entire air handling unit, but this was not realistic due to the required timeframe, and challenges due to space and constraints.
Mainstream delivered a fan array to replace the old, belt-driven fan. The fan array was installed in two days over Christmas break.
The modular cubes were a perfect solution to the access challenges and simplified the installation. Although the tight access required the fans to be brought in through a louver in the wall, our solution made replacing the air handling unit, or even installing a pressure wall, not required.
Mainstream provided this school with easy installation, AHU preservation, and easy access.
Mainstream remains an industry leader, refining the process of designing, replacing, and installing fan arrays. Mainstream’s IntelliCUBE EC Fan arrays allow for expedited retrofitting of air handling units. These EC fans require no maintenance, are significantly quieter than belt-driven fans, and are highly energy efficient. IntelliCUBE EC fans are smaller and easier to transport. They can replace large, aging, or broken fans with an array of smaller fans.
Mainstream’s IntelliCUBE EC fan array systems have become the first choice for retrofitting commercial and industrial air handlers. More benefits include a variety of fan options and fast quotes. Mainstream is a Berkeley Heights, NJ-based HVAC manufacturer with a focus on making the process of quoting and installing fan arrays and other HVAC components as easy as possible.
