Howden American Fan Company launched a line of turbo pressure blowers, ideal for higher pressure systems in combustion air, air pollution control, textile fiber stripping, recycling applications, as well as chemical, pulp and paper, glass, and food processing industry applications. With a wide range of accessories, Howden American Fans customizes the turbo pressure blowers to each individual customer’s system requirements.
Fulton Steam Solutions has launched of a new line of electric steam boilers (FB-E series). Suitable for most any application requiring a design pressure of 100 PSI, the boilers can provide operating pressures up to 85 PSI. The FB-E units serve customers requiring efficient, high-quality saturated steam, including laboratories, hospitals, industrial plants, pilot plants, food and chemical processing applications.
Howden American Fan Company has announced the availability of a wide range of fan product lines ideal for serving industrial boilers, gas turbine installations, and heat-recovery steam generators in combined cycle installations. Howden says it works closely with OEMs to supply a high-quality industrial product that meets specific air flow and pressure requirements. Also available are start-up and commissioning and after-market service and repairs.
Alfa Laval has introduced a patented cooling concept, Low Speed Ventilation, which the company says delivers air at a considerably lower speed: 1.5 to 1.8 meters per second. Reducing air speed and delivering an optimum airflow eliminates the Venturi effect, minimizes pressure differences, and therefore prevents problems such as “hot spots.” As LSV is a normal pressure technology, data center operators only need to control air availability, not air pressure, making it easier to achieve optimum conditions in the server room.
Taco’s now-expanded ECM, wet rotor Viridian line includes the VR3452 high-efficiency wet rotor variable speed circulator for chilled and hot water applications, offering up to 34 ft of shut-off head and 52 gpm flow.
The new HPC40 Series handheld pressure calibrator from Crystal Engineering, a unit of AMETEK Test & Calibration Instruments, incorporates a number of features aimed at extending the range and functionality of the compact instrument.
The new 2014 AQ Pro by E Instruments is an all-in-one tool for indoor air quality monitoring and real-time data logging. The product is ideal for IAQ analysis in hospitals, schools, labs, clean rooms, airports, and more. Multiple parameters can be monitored by customizing up to three gas sensors at one time.
Many engineers tend to avoid or delegate the nitty gritty of a ground source heat pump system, from soil moisture effects to building system (im) balance. It's time for designers to get in the loop. Learn more about Grounded In Reality in the December issue. Other topics in the December issue include health care HVAC, Boilders, check out the Back2Basics, and more.
