The Theris® family of valves are designed specifically for the directional airflow needs of hospitals. Theris controls ventilation and airflow in critical spaces, including temperature control, humidity control, and sensors for complete room solutions.
Because of their design, Theris venturi valves have superior performance over VAV terminal boxes, and at competitive prices. Using Theris, HVAC maintenance of cross-flow sensors is eliminated, energy savings increases, and airborne infectious agents are better controlled throughout the facility.
Leading national standards are issued by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) in the United States and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) in Canada. The publications referenced by the United States entities are the FGI 2010 Guidelines for Design and Construction of Health Care Facilities and the ASHRAE 170 Guidelines, Ventilation of Health Care Facilities. For Canada, the publication referenced is CSA-Z317.2: Special Requirements for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) in Health Care Facilities.
Phoenix Controls publishes a consolidation of these publications into its best-practices guide; the Healthcare Sourcebooks Standards vary by state, also known as Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).
Phoenix Controls has mock-up hospital rooms at its facility in Acton, Massachusetts. Three rooms demonstrate ventilation performance for isolation rooms, operating rooms, and pandemic-ready patient rooms. Phoenix Controls sells its products through independent qualified partners that can also meet with you to present a demonstration. See How to Buy for more information.
The Healthcare Sourcebook is Phoenix Controls’ best-practices guide for hospital ventilation. To order your copy please fill out the Supporting Literature form. Health Facilities Management magazine also published an article on Pandemic-ready HVAC systems and an article that discusses new healthcare facility ventilation standards.
Hundreds of hospitals around the world rely on Phoenix Controls for precision airflow control. A partial list of customers appears in the Healthcare Customers publication. Case studies include the City of Hope located in Duarte, California.
Yes. Theris is available for either BACnet or LonTalk networks. The Theris controller is BACnet tested through the BACnet Testing Laboratory (BTL) certification process. Controllers are also available as LonMark Certified devices. Both controller families permit easy integration with existing building networks.
