    Energy Efficiency

    Rittal

    Energy Efficient Enclosure Climate Control

    Creating effective and energy-efficient climate control solutions for industrial enclosure cooling applications consists of 3 key phases—design, installation and operation. Rittal's complimentary white paper will empower you to make educated operational decisions. You'll learn how to use the design phase to determine analyze thermal loads in your enclosures, and avoid common mistakes in the interior and exterior installation of components.

    Fans

    Greenheck

    Analysis of Induced Flow Laboratory Exhaust Fan Systems and the Benefit of AMCA 260 Certified Performance

    Independent third party verification of ventilation system components is valuable in ensuring performance and safety. This is especially true for critical lab exhaust systems. Air Movement and Control Association International Inc. (AMCA) certifies induced flow fan air and sound performance based on two established testing standards:

    • AMCA Standard 260-7, Laboratory Methods of Testing Induced Flow Fans for Rating.
    • ANSI/AMCA Standard 300-08, Reverberant Room Method for Sound Testing of Fans.

    The AMCA 260 and 300 certified rating seals ensure a laboratory fan system will perform as stated by the manufacturer and as required for a project.

    AAON

    Superheat and Subcooled Levels for Water Source Heat Pumps

    This paper evaluates and analyzes the superheat and subcooled levels for water source heat pumps. As per the non-ideal refrigeration cycle, each cycle has a certain amount of superheat in the suction line and a certain amount of subcooled liquid in the liquid line. By evaluating the level of measured superheat and subcooled levels for a known correctly charged system, we can document and publish the results for internal and external use. By connecting temperature gauges to the suction and liquid lines of a system, the superheat and subcooled levels of the system can be found relatively quickly. Charge can be declared to be correct if the values of the superheat and subcooled levels match those of the lab tested values.

    Daikin

    Sheraton Centre Toronto

    The Challenge: The existing two-pipe chiller system only allowed for either heating or cooling. The system was deteriorating and not providing the ability to heat and cool rooms independently. A replacement system was required to integrate with existing building controls, and comply with CSA B52 refrigerant limitations.

    The Solution: The Sheraton Centre Toronto decided to install a Daikin VRV system. The decision was based on the system's ability to operate in heating and cooling modes simultaneously between guest suites. The Daikin VRV system also operates at lower sound levels, and provided a competitive total installation cost compared to other options.

    Ebtron

    Pressure Control for Today's High Performance Green Buildings

    The control of building pressure is essential to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ), thermal comfort, and structural integrity. Negatively pressurized buildings result in the transport of untreated outdoor air into the building. this untreated outdoor air will result in the transport of dirt, dust and other contaminants; the transport of moisture in humid climates; mold growth; and more. In addition, improper building pressure may damage the building envelope.

    Insulation

    FSI - Foam Supplies, Inc.

    HFC-Free Polyurethane Foam Insulation

    One of the challenges facing HVAC and refrigeration equipment manufacturers today is the continual need to increase energy efficiency. And one of the ways to do that is with better insulation, rather than more insulation (in thicker walls). That’s why more and more manufacturers are turning to polyurethane foam over legacy materials like fiberglass, rock wool and others. The R-value per inch of polyurethane is far superior to other options.

    Piping Systems

    Armacell

    Danger Overhead

    combination of insulation, vapor retarder, and support system minimizes energy loss, maintains the pipe's structural integrity, and keeps the pipe system in place. However, get even one component wrong, and you risk substandard system operation and/or expensive repairs. Of interest for this paper is pipe suspension and mounting systems, including the characteristics that will ensure the pipe system's best operation and avoid costly damage.

    Seismic/Wind Loads

    VISCMA

    Calculation of Wind Loads on Rooftop Equipment per ASCE7-16

    In recent decades, the attention of the industry has primarily been focused on the fears and concerns for proper seismic installations of mechanical equipment. With the concurrence of highly publicized seismic events happening within a few years of each other (late 80s, early 90s), many agencies and organizations properly put much more emphasis on the safe design and installation of mechanical systems for these seismic events. Prior to that, seismic design had been mainly focused on structural requirements and many of the codes and standards had been modified to reflect proper building design.

    What was being overlooked during this time was the installation of mechanical equipment.
