MUA-DG – Direct fired make-up air unit (ETL)
ETL Listed – Halton’s MUA-DG Direct fired make-up air units provide filtered and tempered make up air where ever the need arises to maintain a balanced space. The unit can be utilized for constant volume or work in conjunction with Halton’s M.A.R.V.E.L. demand control variable volume system.
Halton’s range of Direct Fired supply-air units is designed to comply with the highest hygiene requirements inside professional kitchens. Whatever it’s level, hygiene can rapidly be compromised if a correct balance between supply and exhaust is not maintained at all times and in each area of the kitchen. Halton units provide a high level of air quality inside the kitchen and work “hand-in-hand” with PolluStop units and Halton’s airflow optimization system M.A.R.V.E.L.

When replacement air is brought into a kitchen, it needs to be distributed through louvers, vents, diffusers, plenums, etc. It’s not good practice and would be another article, to just “dump” the air in the space through a duct with nothing on the end.
