Traitement d'air et Ventilation

Le traitement d'air de l'ensemble des locaux est assuré par 22 centrales de marque WOLF :

- 4 CTA pour traiter l'air des espaces de bureaux : CTA 01 et 02 pour les étages hauts et CTA 03 à 04 pour les étages bas.

- 4 CTA pour l'apport d'air neuf du RIE (CTA 10 à 13) et 2 *insufflateurs* (INS 01 et 02) pour les cuisines et le scramble du RIE,

The translation as "insufflator" seems to be used in a medical context only (for mechanical ventilation).

I have found a useful definition for this context in Larousse:
"Appareil destiné à envoyer de l'air comprimé, par exemple sous la grille d'une chaudière à vapeur, dans un gazogène, etc."
therefore am thinking of putting "compressed air unit", as this would seem to cover the above definition.
