    Selecting the Right Refrigerant for Commercial Refrigeration

    Keeping food fresh is critical to world health. Refrigerants used in supermarket cooling equipment play a key role. But concerns over certain refrigerants' global warming potential (GWP) — a refrigerant's potential contribution to climate change — are rising.

    There are several low-GWP options for supermarket owners and managers, refrigeration engineers, and contractors to consider that support compliance with climate regulations, safety, energy efficiency, and profitability.

    This paper outlines options to aid in the decision-making process when choosing alternative refrigerants in commercial refrigeration equipment.

    Energy Efficiency

    Greenheck

    Product Application Guide: ASHRAE 90.1-2007 to 2010 to 2013: Changes in Air-To-Air Energy Recovery Requirements and the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC)

    Air-to-air energy recovery devices present several key benefits for commercial buildings. These benefits include lower energy costs due to the reduction in the overall mechanical cooling and heating requirements, lower first costs due to reduced mechanical equipment sizes, and reduced variability in air conditions entering the cooling and heating system. Because energy recovery devices have shown a significant savings in energy consumption, energy standards for commercial buildings have included requirements for air-to-air energy recovery based on system design. ASHRAE Standard 90.1, "Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings," defines guidelines for energy efficiency in commercial buildings. The language and guidelines from ASHRAE 90.1 are adopted into the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), which is often adopted by state and local jurisdictions.

    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.

    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.

    Blueprint: Chippewa Valley Electric Cooperative Cornell, Wisconsin

    Chippewa Valley Electrical Cooperative (CVEC) began building their new headquarters office in the fall of 2014. CVEC has a proud history of promoting energy saving solutions to its 7,500 residential and commercial customers. So, when it came time to select an HVAC system for its new facility, CVEC felt it had to lead by example. The HVAC system needed to be highly efficient, easy to maintain, quiet, comfortable and interlocked with a make-up air system using centralized controls.

    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.

    The Role of Piping Systems in Green Buildings

    When it comes to green buildings, much thought often goes into the building envelope, the HVAC systems, solar panels, daylighting and other high-profile areas. But what about the components that aren't as visible? Though they remain largely unseen behind the walls, piping systems play an essential role in the day-to-day operation of a building—and an integral part in achieving green design goals. Choice of piping touches several aspects of sustainability, including occupant health, resource management and even energy use.

    This white paper provides an overview of how CPVC piping systems influence the overall environmental and human health footprint of commercial buildings.
