DewAir Corp. has introduced the RH-Cube 18, a split-system mechanical dehumidifier that uses a compact, energy-efficient counter-flow heat exchanger for dedicated humidity control. Company officials claim the RH-Cube 18 reduces air conditioning energy costs up to 55% and increases IAQ for restaurants, hotels, schools, health care clinics, athletic facilities, offices, grow-ops, factories, museums, warehouses, residences, and many other applications with small to medium spaces requiring humidity control.
The design and magnitude of a new residential indoor pool built onto a 21,000-square-foot, 100-year-old home named “Daybreak” in Montclair, New Jersey, confronted mechanical engineers with psychrometric and sustainability challenges on par with huge commercial indoor waterparks.
ASHRAE has announced a call for three presenters to share knowledge about the effects of humidity to a global audience in its 2020 ASHRAE Webcast, “Effects of Low Humidity and High Humidity on People, Buildings and Energy Performance.”
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) on downtown Los Angeles’ Grand Avenue required extensive mechanical upgrades to preserve its collection, maintain visitor comfort, and gain tighter control of humidification levels.
Dwyer Instruments has released its Humidity/Temperature Transmitter Series RHPLC. The Series RHPLC is ideal for monitoring humidity and temperature levels for many building automation applications such as room comfort monitoring for schools, offices, or hospitals.
The provision of adequate ventilation is an essential factor in maintaining patient wellbeing in a health care setting; therefore, maintaining acceptable IAQ has become a huge challenge for health care facilities.
To help facility managers ensure temperature and humidity conditions stay within required parameters, Sensaphone® has added a new combination sensor to its line of remote monitoring equipment for HVAC and building automation applications.
DriSteem, along with Jennifer Reiman, Ph.D. of the Mayo Clinic, working in collaboration with Integrated Science Education Outreach (InSciEd Out), released the findings from a pilot study investigating how indoor humidity levels affect transmission of respiratory viruses in a classroom setting.
Engineered Systems magazine’s September 2019 issue questions the need for multiple building codes that cover the same subjects, examines the dos and don’ts of power systems for critical facilities, offers tips on how to select the proper centrifugal pump circuit flow controls, and much more.
