Focus on Indoor Air Quality

    Posted on Tue,Mar 30, 2021 @ 02:00 PM

    Indoor air quality (IAQ) and its effect on occupant well-being and comfort are essential. Many issues such as sick building syndrome, indoor air quality thermal comfort, visual comfort, and acoustic comfort are a part of the indoor environment. Good indoor air quality requires attention to the building's HVAC system, measure and monitoring, healthy indoor air, air filtration, and pollutant source management. Some good practices in these areas have also been highlighted.

    The Secret of Controlling IAQ is Measuring

    Posted on Tue,Feb 02, 2021 @ 12:55 PM

    On average, we spend approximately 90% of our lives indoors and take about 20,000 breaths a day. We assume the air is "clean" in the buildings and will not affect our health. It is surprising how little we know about the importance of indoor air quality.

    Duct Differential Pressure Sensors with True Auto Zero Functionality

    Posted on Tue,Sep 15, 2020 @ 12:47 PM

    The new 22ADP-584A and the 22ADP-584B duct differential pressure sensors with true auto-zero functionality provide precise pressure measurement. The automatic calibration electronically adjusts the transmitter’s zero reference value every ten minutes. During the adjustment, the output and display values will freeze to the last measured value, eliminating output signal drift due to thermal, electronic, or mechanical effects. The device returns to its normal measuring mode after the one-second calibration process.

    How to Protect Your System and Save Money?

    Posted on Tue,Sep 01, 2020 @ 09:00 AM
    Trusted flow measurement is essential in maximizing HVAC system efficiency and ensuring occupant comfort. Glycol prevents heat transfer fluids from freezing in heating, cooling, and air conditioning systems. In systems where pipework is exposed to the exterior environment – rooftop units, free cooling, cooling towers – and green energy applications, such as solar thermal collectors. Glycol is also used in district cooling systems – such as high rise properties where low-temperature energy networks serve several customers.

    Influence of Indoor Air Quality on Our Health

    Posted on Tue,Jun 02, 2020 @ 08:30 AM

    People spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors and breathe 3170 gallons (12,000 liters) of air per day. Therefore, it is essential to understand the powerful influence that indoor air quality has on our well-being, especially during this extraordinary COVID-19 pandemic. While the impact of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) on humans has been widely discussed within the context of the 'sick building syndrome,' the role dry air plays in spreading of microbes, including viruses, is often neglected. High performing HVAC systems and proper humidification strategies are required to maintain a stable and healthy indoor air quality in buildings.

    Indoor Air Quality Measurement

    Posted on Tue,May 19, 2020 @ 08:30 AM
    Humans spend around 90% of their lifetimes inside closed rooms, therefore its essential to have a pleasant room climate. Air quality, in particular, has a significant impact on our health and well-being. Airtight building shells may well be superior in terms of energy, but they prevent natural air exchange. However, buildings can be fully automated using appropriate ventilation systems and sensors.

    Trusted Flow Measurement

    Posted on Tue,Aug 20, 2019 @ 08:32 AM
    Glycol is commonly used to prevent heat transfer fluids freezing in heating, cooling, and air conditioning systems. It is typically found in systems where pipework is exposed to the exterior environment – rooftop units, free cooling, cooling towers, district cooling systems, and green energy applications, such as solar thermal collectors. Glycol into any system can result in large errors in thermal energy measurement when using a meter intended for water alone.
