Case Study: Caribbean Resort

Posted by Armstrong Fluid Technology on May 21, 2024 8:26:17 AM

In 2018, the HVAC system at a popular holiday resort suffered a series of failures and leaks, resulting in frequent downtime. An initial review determined that the existing pumps were the cause and had to be replaced. The review also noted that the pumps were oversized, which affected system efficiency. With the resort occupancy rates near 95% for most of the year, HVAC performance and reliability are crucial, so managers decided to go ahead with an upgrade.

April 22nd is designated as Earth Day. We spend the day (and perhaps a few days on either side) thinking more carefully about the environment and our impact on it. We make commitments around the many ways the years ahead will be different. How we can change. How we can consume less. How we can be more responsible. How we can reduce our carbon footprint, and purchase carbon credits to erase the rest.

Horizontal Split Case Fire Pump

Horizontal Split Case Fire Pump

 

 

These pumps use a between-the-bearings design, which means that the impeller is supported by bearings on both sides. This design provides more support for the impeller and enables it to rotate more efficiently under stress. HSC pumps place the suction and discharge nozzles (flanges) in the bottom half of the casing, on opposite sides. The impeller shaft is positioned slightly above the flanges. This sturdy but simple design is particularly suitable for higher flow applications, because it reduces thrust loads on the pump shaft and allows for operation over a broad range of flows.
