Lo-Carbon NBR dMEV
Continuous running, constant volume dMEV range with switched live (LS) and innovative digital display and harmonised control platform. Quiet running and with high pressure development, the dMEV is best in class. The unique patented display provides the calibrated installed airflow and pressure meaning that there is no need to test the installation with an airflow measuring device. The constant volume technology automatically adjusts the speed of the fan to ensure the desired airflow is delivered. A silent high pressure axial impeller means Lo-Carbon dMEV can meet the requirements of many domestic installations without the need to use a traditional centrifugal fan. A brand new control platform also provides fully adjustable airflow in 1l/s increments, meaning wholehouse rates can be achieved easily using fewer fans than is currently possible with any other dMEV product on the market.

Longer Duct Runs
A new 125mm dMEV fan is also available to further improve Dwelling Emission Rates (DER) by improving efficiency and lowering noise. The larger 125mm spigot also means there are almost no restrictions in terms of duct lengths and bends used in the system, when compared to a traditional 100mm axial fan. This means fewer fans are required to achieve wholehouse ventilation rates.

As can be seen below, an axial dMEV fan consumes a fraction of the energy of the equivalent centrifugal fan - drastically reducing DER.



Comfort Control Option
Designed to offer a more relaxing environment to the homeowner, the Lo-Carbon dMEV features a delayed start option. This patented comfort control option is selectable at installation and allows the homeowner to enjoy a quiet, peaceful bathroom for up to 20 minutes before the Boost activates. Furthermore, if the light switch turns On and Off within 3 minutes, the Boost will not activate. No more disturbing the family if the bathroom light is turned on during the night.

Consultant Specification
The de-centralised mechanical extract ventilation unit shall be the NBR DMEV as manufactured by Vent-Axia, exact unit sizing and specification shall be in accordance with the particular specification. The range should consist of IPX5 rated 100mm and 125mm sizes to meet the Building Regulations compliant design, extracting air from wet rooms (including kitchen and utility) via rigid, flexible ducting or throughwall applications with the fewest fans possible, supplied with a 7 year warranty.
The 100mm DMEV should have variable speed settings of 5-30 l/s on trickle and 6-35 l/s on boost, achieving a minimum noise level of 13 dB(A) at 3 metres. The 125mm DMEV should have variable speed settings of 9-30 l/s on trickle and 10-35 l/s on boost, achieving a minimum noise level of 12.9 dB(A) at 3 metres. All units shall be and independently 3rd party tested at the Sound Research Laboratory (SRL), tested to BS EN 13141-6.
The unit shall comprise a single high efficiency EC/DC motor to deliver specific fan powers as low as 0.12 w/l/s, as measured in accordance with the SAP PCDB test method and listed on the PCDB database. The controls for the DMEV unit shall provide fully adjustable, continuous trickle and boost speeds, with the airflow being controlled in 1 l/s increments. The boost speed shall be activated via a switch live input or integral humidistat.
The unit shall include an integral humidity sensor with ambient and rapid response capability, which increases fan speed in proportion to the level of humidity detected. The unit shall also automatically raise the humidity threshold set point as temperature decreases in order to prevent unnecessary boosting due to background humidity levels.
The unit shall be able to be commissioned as a continuous running or intermittent fan according to the Building Regulations compliant design.
The fan will have an in-built spirit level for ease of installation. Commissioning of the fan in accordance with the Building regulations shall be achieved without the use of an airflow measuring device. The fan shall be provided with a UKAS calibrated, constant volume function with the flow rates displayed on the unit without having to remove the cover via the display prism.
