Unfortunately, the potential threats to building occupants are varied and increasing. To adapt properly, let’s look at the culture change needed in the design process. Commissioning, recommissioning, and preventive maintenance are further pieces of a strategy to assure ongoing safety.
Designed with the needs of building owners and their specifying engineers in mind, Cambridge Engineering has introduced a new line of Blow-Thru® Direct Gas-Fired Space Heaters to heat smaller commercial and industrial facilities.
Belimo Americas has released its new inline Flow Meters (.5 in to 2 in) which aim to provide accurate and repeatable hot or chilled water flow measurement. Utilizing an ultrasonic transit time technology, the transducers perform as both emitter and receiver to provide accurate signal. The meter is multi-point wet calibrated to ensure accuracy and repeatability.
The Museum of the Bible’s project team was already up against the extremes of Washington weather and the high demands of IAQ for artifact preservation. A system that harnessed adequate cooling, heating, humidification, and ventilation capabilities would still have one more hurdle: a physical footprint of hardly Biblical proportion. Get a first look at this testament to design acumen and true collaboration.
From a missing pipe hanger three floors down to steam traps past their prime, these stories show how steam system problems can originate inside the boiler room or far beyond it. Read more in February issue.
