ClimaCool says it has introduced a modular chiller that harnesses both air and water to achieve simultaneous heating and cooling without geothermal. The product, referred to as the Simultaneous Heating and Cooling Air Cooled Heat Pump with Integral Water to Water Heat Recovery, extends the company’s line of chillers.
Johnson Controls has expanded its YORK line of YLAA Air-Cooled Scroll Chillers up to 200 tons. The company says the extended capacity of the YLAA offers a more cost competitive solution to 200-ton opportunities without sacrificing size, quality, and efficiency.
It might seem like an odd objective, but the potential efficiency gains are real. And from heat recovery chillers to modified humidification targets so are the opportunities to replace steam production with hot water generation and to manage remaining steam needs more intelligently.
The production of thermal power is critically important in carrying out the mission of health care facilities where it is used for space heating, humidification, domestic water heating, and for processes in dietary, laundry, and sterilization departments. The age of the hospital, the programs offered, and the regional climate will all affect the demand for thermal power.
Technical Systems (TSI), a division of RAE Corporation, has announced the availability of its Series 35 Evaporative Cooled Chillers. The company says the chillers have been specifically designed to provide-highly efficient cooling for commercial and industrial-duty applications.
Schaffner EMC introduced the ECOsine® Active 200/250/300A, a harmonic filter providing harmonic compensation in real-time for industrial and commercial environments. With a capacity of 300A, operating at 480VAC (+/- 10%), the connection-ready 200/250/300A (three-wire) cabinet models include forced air cooling and internal liquid cooling for the power electronics. The company said filters are capable of supporting large production facilities.
Sensaphone® will introduce its Sentinel™ PRO remote monitoring system, an enhanced version of the Sentinel cloud-based system that provides 24/7 remote monitoring of unattended HVAC units, freezers, refrigerators, boilers, and chillers. The Sentinel PRO system supports the Modbus communications protocol and includes a second relay output — capabilities required to monitor and control complex networks.
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.
