ClimateCraft has supplemented its FanMatrix™ fan array system with the new BalanceStream™ technology. Featuring a spring-actuated inlet cone and designed with only one moving part, the company says its BalanceStream improves system efficiency, flexibility, and simplicity while reducing maintenance and energy costs. ClimateCraft has engineered the technology to incorporate no supplemental electro-mechanical devices, nor require a complex control strategy. Additionally, BalanceStream eliminates the need for backdraft dampers, and features automatic shut-off in the case of fan failure. FanMatrix with BalanceStream technology is available for replacement fan installations, or easily retrofitted into existing FanMatrix systems.
The Thermox® WDG-V combustion analyzer can measure oxygen, combustibles, and methane levels in hot, wet flue gas. The company says its analyzer provides a reliable and cost-effective solution for monitoring combustion, reducing excess oxygen, lowering emissions of NOx, CO, and CO2 and improving operating efficiency.
Automatic Filters Inc. introduced its new line of ABW (automatic backwash) filters. The TEKLEEN® filters are useful for the HVAC industry, especially in cooling tower applications. The filters eliminate contamination caused by airborne dust, sand, pollen, algae, and pipe scales, thus reducing maintenance and operations costs.
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.
