Energy Recovery Technologies
Energy recovery is a common solution to provide comfort ventilation for commercial and institutional applications. Due to the large variety of technologies, there is a need to differentiate the advantages of each. This article will explore three of the most common technologies in the energy recovery market.
Cooling Industrial Enclosures with Filter Fans
As electronic components get smaller and more densely packed into enclosures, systems are becoming increasingly sensitive to external factors including dust, oil, and temperature. Heat in particular is a fatal enemy of sensitive electronics. In order to protect the proper functioning of electronic components, this heat must be dissipated. This white paper focuses on cooling with filter fans, demonstrating why it may be beneficial to choose a fan over other climate control options.
- Learn when to use filter fans based on ambient temperature in your facility
- Discover why filter fans are the simplest and most cost-effective cooling choice
- Gain understanding on the value of filters for increasing the efficacy of enclosures that protect your electronics
- Become familiar with surface area, air flow, and the use of multiple fans in the same enclosure for increased temperature control success
Seismically Certified AAON HVAC Equipment
After an earthquake or seismic event, buildings containing essential services must be able to remain operational. Seismic certification of HVAC equipment provides assurance that the equipment will not only survive the earthquake, it will remain online and functional. Seismically certified HVAC equipment allows consulting and specifying engineers to meet the strictest seismic building codes, quickly and easily, without the delays of additional certification testing. Seismically certified HVAC equipment allows building owners to protect their investment.
Advantages of Using Integrated Thermal Controls Versus Third-Party Controls
Data center managers have many choices when choosing thermal controls, either those that come pre-installed and integrated with cooling units, or third-party controls requiring installation on units and additional integration programming. Emerson Network Power believes that using thermal controls that come integrated with cooling units helps ensure fast, trouble-free, and efficient thermal management and easier integration to building management systems (BMS). In contrast, some of the biggest mistakes we have seen in the thermal controls arena have resulted from using third-party controls requiring complex programming and integration to units and the BMS.
Clarification on the Calculation of Boiler Efficiencies: A UNILUX Perspective
Efficiency is the name of the game today, and the boiler world is no exception. If you can squeeze half a percent of efficiency out of a boiler it can amount to enormous cost savings on an annual basis. So, it should come as no surprise that finding creative ways of calculating efficiency when selling a product has become a common practice. However, there are those methods that have a logical precedent behind them (choosing between the heat loss method and the input-output method), and there are those methods which are in fact misleading and incorrect.
