Chilled Beams

Klima-Therm supplies a range of chilled beams from PremiAir and Cosy, offering high quality passive and active solutions for a range of commercial and industrial applications, ensuring appropriate climate control, energy efficiency, reliability.

PremiAir active chilled beam

The PremiAir active chilled beam controls the air temperature in building, providing individual room control to create a comfortable climate. Designed for integrated installation, it is an induction-type, four-way air conditioning system that is mounted on the ceiling.

The plenum air box and connection are constructed from galvanised steel, while the unit’s side-panels and visible front plate are made from durable powder-coated aluminium and sheet steel.

AirFlex air deflectors are manufactured from tough polyamide plastic, while the heat exchanger is made from resilient aluminium and copper. The unit offers circular or square perforation options as standard.

Chilled beam FAQs

What are chilled beams?

Imagine a revolutionary technology that not only cools your environment efficiently but also enhances air quality, all while seamlessly blending into the aesthetics of your space. Enter chilled beams – an ingenious solution that’s transforming the way we approach climate control in commercial and industrial settings.

What are the advantages of chilled beams?

  • Energy efficient – by harnessing natural convection currents, chilled beams can achieve significant energy savings compared to conventional systems, slashing operational costs and reducing environmental impact.
  • Low maintenance, low cost – with fewer moving parts and no air filters to replace, maintenance requirements are minimal, translating to lower long-term costs for building owners and managers.
  • Good air – by eliminating the need for air recirculation, chilled beams help prevent the spread of airborne contaminants and reduce the risk of allergens, creating a cleaner and more enjoyable space for occupants.
  • Aesthetic appeal – available in various sizes and configurations, they can be seamlessly integrated into virtually any architectural design, complementing the visual aesthetics of a space without compromising functionality.

How do chilled beams differ from traditional HVAC?

Chilled beams operate on a simple principle: they use convection to cool a room by circulating chilled water through a network of pipes embedded in a ceiling-mounted or exposed unit. Unlike traditional HVAC systems that rely heavily on forced-air circulation, chilled beams work silently and efficiently, making them an ideal choice for environments where noise and airflow disruption are concerns.

What is the difference between passive and active chilled beams?

When it comes to chilled beams, there are two primary types to consider: passive and active. Passive chilled beams rely solely on natural convection for heat exchange, making them ideal for spaces with moderate cooling requirements. On the other hand, active chilled beams incorporate additional components such as fans or induction units to enhance cooling capacity, making them suitable for larger or more demanding applications.

Can chilled beams be integrated with other HVAC?

Installation considerations for chilled beams include ceiling height, structural support, and compatibility with existing HVAC systems. Proper design and integration are crucial to maximising performance and ensuring seamless operation.
