    Energy Efficiency

    JCI Ruskin

    Today's data centers not only require protection from the elements, but also need to save energy, as estimates indicate they consume about 1.5 percent of all power used in the U.S. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), data centers are one of the largest and fastest growing consumers of electricity in the country. In 2013, three million computer rooms in the U.S. used enough electricity to match the annual output of 34 large coal-fired power plants, and those statistics are expected to increase. Annual consumption is projected to increase by roughly 47 billion kilowatt-hours by 2020. As a result, the NRDC recommends the data center industry adopt best-practice efficiency behaviors as demand increases to unprecedented levels.

    Rittal

    Energy Efficient Enclosure Climate Contro

    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.

    Extreme Events (Wind, Seismic)

    VICSMA

    Calculation of Wind Loads on Rooftop Equipment per ASCE 7-16

    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.

    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.

    ALLEGIS

    Sealing Out HVAC System LeaksOne of the most common issues that today’s HVAC system manufacturers face is determining how to seal an HVAC unit to reduce air and moisture leakage.As anyone knows who has designed the exterior casing of an HVAC unit, there’s not a simple black and white answer to this issue. And that’s because it can be incredibly complex.

    Great Plains Industries

    When specifying a flowmeter, it is important to know the accuracy. The accuracy of a flow meter can be stated one of two ways; as a percentage of full scale (FS) or as a percentage of reading (RD, also referred to as percentage of rate). It is important to understand the meaning of both so that your flow meter performs as expected and with the desired accuracy.
