10 Energy Efficiency Tips For Commercial Buildings

Industrial Controls offers you 10 Tips for Increasing Energy Efficiency while also keeping IAQ in mind: Commercial buildings can significantly reduce their overall cost of owning and operating an HVAC system by incorporating energy efficient equipment. In most cases, the more efficient equipment will be paid back through reduced operating costs in the first year. 1. Regular…


The Belimo Energy Valve™ Cures Medical University’s Low Delta-T

The University of Miami’s Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine says it prides itself on bringing medical research from “bench to bedside,” meaning doctors are providing patients in Southern Florida with the latest cutting-edge developments in medical care. On its sprawling campus and in its state-of-the-art buildings, doctors and researchers are unlocking the secrets to not only infectious diseases, but the future of stem cells and genetics.


Humidity Measurement in Cleanrooms

Choosing the right type of measurement instrument is important in order to reach the best humidity measurement results. Calibration should also be carried out regularly, and to traceable standards. Products manufactured in cleanrooms cover a wide range, including pharmaceuticals and semiconductors. Humidity, temperature, particles and pressure are often controlled, as these parameters can have serious effects on product quality and production efficiency.


Alternative to Globe Valves in Your Pharmaceutical Plant

A biopharmaceutical plant in the U. S. was operating a cold/chilled glycol (CG) system to cool approximately 50 process vessels, mainly jacketed tanks (250 – 3500 L), and several heat exchangers to produce its products. The plant was approximately 18 years old and circulated propylene glycol (40%) and water (60%) as the heat transfer medium. Chillers in the basement generated 28°F (-2°C)cold glycol which was then circulated by three constant-speed centrifugal pumps to the distribution network. System differential pressure control was achieved with a bypass valve that short-circuited the CG supply to the return side during periods of low demand.
