Protecting the investment in high-efficiency boilers, chillers, and other system components necessitates efficient fluid distribution. Eliminating air and dirt removes many routine maintenance items, saves energy, and improves overall system performance and heat transfer. But, not all dirt and air separators are equal or perform the same. Tune in to see why we recommend Spirotherm dirt and air separator technology for many applications.
Watch the video here: great debate. There are predominantly 2 types of cooling towers - counterflow and crossflow. The primary distinction between crossflow and counterflow cooling towers is how the air passing through the cooling tower interacts with the process water being cooled. In a crossflow tower, air flows horizontally across the direction of the falling water, whereas air flows in the opposite direction (counter) to the direction of the falling water in a counterflow tower.Join host Brian Gomski with cooling tower experts Troy Gladstone and Ryan Miller as we evaluate both options in detail and label one cooling tower type the predominant choice and winner in most scenarios.
The world of commercial water boilers can be a little bit confusing and overwhelming. One of the reasons is the technology has evolved immensely in a short period of time, and if you didn’t keep up with the pace, you might fall behind. Luckily, Brad Carll (Camus Hydronics) and Jeff Henderson (Midwest Machinery) provide a great 101 discussion about boiler technology and operation.
Have you ever wondered how much performance is actually reduced with dirty equipment? In this episode, Jim Moran of Permatron and Brian Gomski discuss HVAC equipment filtration and why it's vital to peak performance.
Today's episode features Steve Levine, CEO of AtmosAir.For nearly two decades, AtmosAir has been bringing an active and transparent approach to pioneering solutions for indoor air quality.And the true benefits are something you’ll see for years to come. We’re talking about the competitive edge that comes with being able to ensure improved air quality, the bottom line business advantages of fewer sick days, greater productivity, and the peace of mind that comes from living in, working in or visiting a healthy indoor environment.
Dustin Schafer, Chief Technical Officer at Henderson Engineers in Kansas City discusses his leadership role and the future of mechanical engineering firms. He pushes to go beyond the basic mechanics of engineering to arrive at solutions that are as artful as they are functional.
This week we have John Stack on the show from Smardt Chiller Group. We discuss how oil-free mag bearing chillers work, where they got their start, and where the future is headed. Smardt offers the highest IPLV energy efficiencies and the lowest lifetime operating costs in their capacity ranges.
Kevin Fahey of AtmosAir joins us this week for a deep dive into BiPolar Ionization technology. Can these devices solve our indoor air concerns as it relates to Covid-19? Understand how the system works (scientifically), how it interacts with Coronavirus, and it's interaction with VOC's, bacteria, smoke, pollen, and more.
Dan Bilancia with ClimateMaster gives us a detailed look into water source heat pumps and geothermal options for your commercial project. Is it THE most energy-efficient option? Tune in to find out. Additional hosts are Brian Gomski and Ryan Miller.
Dustin Schafer, Mitch Case, and your host Brian Gomski gather to discuss reopening businesses and occupied spaces in the United States as distancing restrictions are eased. What can building operators do to help reduce COVID-19 transmission potential? Tune in to find out.
Not all grow rooms are created equal. Uncover how designing a grow room properly will result in higher crop yield, increased product quality, and significantly lower utility bills. These tips and tricks are well worth a listen. Hosts include Brian Gomski, Eric Eyler, and Paul Stewart.
This week Spencer Kaufman (Midwest Machinery | Application Engineer) and Jarrod Wrampe (CRB | Associate, Sr. Process Utility Engineer) discuss how the construction industry is helping with the rapid deployment of therapies and treatment for COVID-19. In addition, they discuss Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) and how they are manufactured.
If we owned a 500-ton Cooling Tower. These are the must have accessories or "hacks" you want. Join us as Troy Gladstone and Ryan Miller take turns revealing these important upgrades.
Today we sit down with Jim Johnston, co-founder of Altaire - The "turbocharger" for air handlers. We discuss the inherent problems with existing and underperforming air handlers, how it affects tenants, and what we can do to solve the problem.
Episode Description:Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory new building 201 will host cutting edge research paving the way to new technologies. CannonDesign solved complex engineering and architectural building design challenges to deliver this state of the art research facility. Tune in and see how these two organizations collaborated for a truly stunning and technologically advanced building critical to providing solutions to our nation’s most challenging research, engineering, and analytical problems. Building Description:260,000 gsf interdisciplinary research facility that will provide the Research and Exploratory Development Department (REDD) with flexible open laboratories, and core laboratories in a highly collaborative open workplace environment. REDD’s interdisciplinary programs include Multifunctional Materials and Nanostructures, Experimental and Computational Physics, Microelectronics and Microsystems, and Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Core Labs include THZ and Quantum Mechanics Optics Labs, MBE and MTS Labs, a Dry Lab, an Imaging Suite, NMR’s, and a Metal Shop. Also included are Open Labs for Biological and Health Sciences programs with flanking support labs for Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Analytical Instrumentation, and Sequencing Labs, as well as Virology, Tissue Culture, Environmental Chambers, Mass Specs, and Radioisotopes. The building has additional amenities including a large auditorium capable of hosting town hall type meetings and delivering presentations. The building is expected to be occupied early 2020. Project Highlights: 260,000 gross square feet IECC 2015, LEED Silver (Pending) -167,000 CFM total 100% OA lab supply; lab AHU’s have fan arrays for partial redundancy -200,000 CFM total building supply air; every AHU with energy recovery -180,000 CFM total (150,000 CFM + 30,000 CFM) N+1 high plume laboratory exhaust fan array - 225,000 CFM engineered smoke control system for the atrium. - 18,000 MBH high efficiency condensing HHW plant with N+1 boiler not included in total - 1,280 ton CHW plant with N+1 chiller not included in total - Laboratory equipment process cooling system.
Are all fan coils the same? What the heck is a 6-way valve? Sit back, relax and pour yourself a cup of tea as we take a deep dive into these mighty little boxes.
In today's fireside chat we sit down with Matt Pefley of Spirotherm to discuss air in your water. How does it get there? Why is it bad? How do we get rid of it?
