Carrier’s Newest RTU Option – Dual Stage Relief Economizer

The patented and exclusive Dual Stage Relief Economizer is designed to provide all the functions of the typical air economizer while adding additional means to relieve building air pressure through the rooftop unit when required. All of this is achieved without adding an additional power exhaust system or a special central exhaust fan system and their related electric power source.

Dual Stage Relief Operation:

The 1st stage of natural relief is through the new dedicated air
chamber, and will provide relief when the building pressure
warrants regardless of the economizer damper positions or the
indoor fan status. A separate relief duct, must be installed in the return
opening in the curb.

The 2nd stage, which is the conventional natural relief of the
past, provides additional pressurization relief when the outside
air damper is mostly open and space pressure warrants.

See attached product data.
