An Introduction to Domestic Water Pressure Booster Pumps

Posted by Steven Lane on Aug 16, 2023 3:05:59 PM



A domestic water pressure booster system is essential for buildings with inadequate supply pressure from the city or buildings served from storage tanks. A booster ensures potable water is available at appropriate pressures on every level of a building. Because flow demand in most buildings is highly variable, variable frequency drives and automatic controls are an excellent option to reduce the energy used to maintain constant pressure.

The Heart of Hospital Comfort - Improving HVAC system resilience by understanding flow

Posted by Steven Lane on Jan 20, 2021 4:11:20 AM

As Seen On: November 2020

The healthcare industry wrestles with the long-running problem of patient non-adherence. The consequences are waste of medication, disease progression, reduced functional abilities, lower quality of life and increased use of medical resources, such as nursing homes, hospital visits and admissions.

The built environment grapples with its own version of non-adherence. Buildings of all types and sizes, including healthcare facilities, are designed, constructed and commissioned with mechanical systems to regulate the indoor environment, in particular temperature and humidity. The challenge facility managers face is HVAC systems experience what is referred to as ‘performance drift.’
