CAD Drawings in HVAC systems

Posted by Armstrong Fluid Technology on Nov 8, 2023 6:47:42 AM

CAD (computer-aided design) drawings are digital files that house 3D & 2D models of physical objects. CAD files can include information such as geometric data, manufacturing data, material properties, and other data. CAD files are ‘to-scale’, meaning designers are able to create drawings in real-world dimensions.

As Seen On: July 6,2022

It’s important for HVAC system designers to understand that the relationship between pump costs and pump size is not a simple straight line. As pump sizes increase, the costs for the equipment, related components and installation increase faster. The result is that a pumping system that serves an HVAC load using two small pumps is less expensive than buying and installing one large pump.

As facility managers, contractors and service professionals gain experience working with remote performance tracking capabilities for intelligent pumps, the HVAC industry is learning how valuable this type of subscription service can be. It seems that many customers originally agreed to the purchase of a performance tracking subscription service on the assumption that it would serve only as a security blanket, but would be mostly unnecessary. Based on the testimonial stories provided by customers describing service, maintenance and performance management scenarios, the subscription service has proven its value many times over. Examples detailing how remote performance tracking prevented a serious negative outcome, organized into categories, are presented below.

VRF versus HYDRONICS  - Comparing HVAC technologies and associated costs.

Posted by Kazi Nasir on Mar 19, 2021 7:50:20 AM

As Seen On: - March 2021

The Hydronics Industry Alliance released a report studying a VRF system and hydronic system installed in the same building. The report found the VRF system had higher energy consumption in three consecutive years of operation.

With a considerable volume of contradictory information in circulation regarding the application of different technologies for HVAC systems, this article seeks to explain some of the technical aspects of variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems, and offer comparisons on the basis of cost and performance to more standard hydronic systems. While some of the material presented here are drawn from industry literature, the majority is drawn from peer-reviewed studies conducted by recognized industry professionals.
