Daikin Applied has introduced new developments with its Magnitude® WME Generation 2 magnetic bearing chiller. Firmly grounded in Daikin’s oil-free, magnetic bearing compressor technology, the Magnitude® WME Generation 2 builds on its performance with a redesign of the single compressor WME models from 400 to nearly 800 tons. The company says the Magnitude WME Generation 2 offers improved performance (especially in harsher climates), lower operating costs, and improved first costs.
Roberts-Gordon LLC recently reintroduced the GORDONRAY® DF two-Stage, unitary low-intensity infrared heater. Due to the ability to fire at two distinct rates, the company says its GORDONRAY® DF provides energy efficient heat that can effectively adjust to sudden high heat-loss conditions or economically maintain steady comfort levels.
Sensaphone® has upgraded its 1800™ monitoring system with a new keypad display and enhanced audio output. The company says the system provides cost-effective, 24/7 remote monitoring of environmental conditions and unattended HVACR equipment.
Johnson Controls has released a new Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS) that meets ASHRAE 62.1 fresh air requirements. The company says the DOAS delivers up to 100% clean, dehumidified outside air in all weather and climate conditions.
The WSG30™ system from Sensaphone® provides 24/7 remote monitoring of HVAC units, refrigerators, and freezers. It is ideal for locations where hard-wiring sensors are difficult or cost prohibitive. The WSG30 system is a web-based monitoring system that uses wireless sensors to detect problems such as temperature changes (from -109°F to 115°F), humidity fluctuations, water leaks, and power outages. A single WSG30 unit can support up to 30 wireless sensors.
The high-profile equipment involves an efficient, resilient trigeneration plant to provide heating, cooling, and power service. However, UConn’s most critical asset may be its forward-thinking, campus-wide energy strategy. Read more stories in June Issue 2017.
