Belimo Energy Valve Helps Red Wing School District Increase Energy Efficiency

    Posted on Tue,Apr 09, 2019 @ 09:35 AM

    Located in Goodhue County, Minnesota, on the western bank of the Mississippi River, the Red Wing Public School District is a model of energy efficiency in the educational sector. Over the last two decades, Red Wing has made a substantial commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability – leveraging the latest and greatest building technologies to reduce energy consumption and enhance the learning environment for its 2,700+ students. With the Belimo Energy Valves installed across the district, Belimo played an essential role in helping Red Wing achieve its sustainability goals. The Energy Valves help facility personnel optimize Delta T and HVAC system water usage and with cloud connectivity, the district can capitalize on the many benefits afforded by the Internet of Things (IoT).

    Retrofit Solution Eases the Pain of DDC Conversion at VA Hospital

    Posted on Tue,Feb 04, 2014 @ 10:00 AM

    Making the switch from a pneumatically controlled HVAC system to a DDC system opens the door for tremendous energy savings. It is also one of the most costly and complex renovations a facility can undertake. A significant portion of this investment of time and resources involves the replacement of existing valves and/or actuators. Actuator replacement alone can be a long and tedious task, especially if there are hundreds of terminal units involved. If both actuators and valves must be replaced, the breadth of labor and cost go up significantly since welders and pipefitters are required. However, thanks to new actuator retrofit technology from Belimo, the process of converting a pneumatic building to a DDC system is a lot less painful. In Spring 2013 Oklahoma City VA Hospital was the first to receive the cure.

    MIT Reaps the Rewards of Higher Delta-T!

    Posted on Mon,Jul 09, 2012 @ 10:00 AM

    Low Delta-T Syndrome is a common (and costly) problem in many large facilities, especially on sprawling campuses with central chilled water plants.  This was and still is the case at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  But the problem isn’t as bad as it used to be. Facility engineers within the University’s Sustainability and Utility Planning are now optimistic that it will continue to improve.  This is in thanks to new valve technology from Belimo that was applied to MIT’s Charles Hayden Library as a beta test for a new Belimo product – the Belimo Energy Valve™.  The results are promising for any large facility currently battling Low Delta-T Syndrome.

    Pressure Independent Valve Technology Provides Long Term Solution

    Posted on Mon,Feb 06, 2012 @ 10:00 AM

    Shell Point Retirement Community in Fort Myers, FL, is an extraordinary property. With over 400 acres and nearly 2000 residents, it is Florida's largest life care retirement community, combining all the services of a comprehensive staged elder care facility and the amenities of an all-inclusive resort. Also extraordinary is the fact that this sprawling property, which includes a 75-acre island and a wide assortment of medical, recreational, and living facilities, is served almost entirely by one central energy plant. The efficient and seamless delivery of heating and cooling to the outlying buildings is, in no small part, thanks to the nearly 1500 Pressure Independent Control Valves (PICCV).

    Control Strategy has University of North Florida Seeing ORANGE

    Posted on Mon,Jul 25, 2011 @ 10:00 AM

    The University of North Florida (UNF) chilled water plant gives new meaning the term "Florida orange." At first glance it looks as though the chilled and condenser water piping were laden with large, orange-colored tropical fruit. But the assortment of brightly colored Belimo control valves is in place throughout the plant (and campus) to save the university energy and labor. It’s part of a carefully orchestrated control strategy, developed and implemented by the Campus, the engineering community, and Facility Automation Solutions in Jacksonville, Florida that gives plant personnel computerized remote control over chilled water and cooling tower operation.
