Don’t Find Yourself On The Wrong Side Of The Law

Posted by Steve Rees on Jun 5, 2018 8:13:51 AM

As specialists in HVAC, building engineers are used to tracking the regulatory requirements around M & E. Over the last year, however, it has been a regulation relating to the construction side of our industry that has caught a number of companies on the hop. I am referring, of course, to EN 1090 which dictates requirements for CE marking for the ‘Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures’. 

This piece of legislation, which became law in July 2014, focuses on fabricated structural steel that is designed to be load bearing and permanent. It requires that the supply chain must have compliance, and it is mandatory for manufacturers (as well as some steel stockholders and distributors) throughout the European Economic Area.

A High-Rise Residential Facility Case Study

Ventus at Metrogate is a condominium complex located in the greater Toronto area, developed by Tridel Corporation. Upholding the company’s commitment to environmental leadership. Ventus suites boast a number of energy efficient, sustainable features including low voc paints and carpeting, Energy Star® appliances, energy recovery ventilation and high efficiency HVAC systems.

Armstrong originally supplied the pumps that support the HVAC system: two base mounted Series 4030 pumps, configured in parallel mode. Sized to provide 368 gpm at 100 feet of pressure (84 m3/hr at 30 m), each pump was attached to a variable speed drive purchased separately.

Shane Leather, Business Development Manager – Tall Buildings at Armstrong Fluid Technology, looks at energy efficiency strategies for large-scale HVAC installations.

When designing large-scale HVAC installations, the stakes are high. Even seemingly minor design decisions can have major implications when the resulting energy savings (or indeed energy wastage) are scaled up across a large multi-storey building. Achieving outstanding levels of energy efficiency is far from easy in these large-scale projects, however. The challenges fall into a number of categories:

Energy savings at office complex

Posted by Armstrong Fluid Technology on Aug 17, 2016 8:57:51 AM

As Seen on WorldPumps – September, 2016

When a major commercial building in the centre of Birmingham needed to refurbish the site’s HVAC pumping system, Armstrong Fluid Technology came up with an alternative solution which reduced energy consumption and improved efficiency.

The Axis office complex occupies a 178,000 sq. ft site close to Broad Street and Birmingham New Street Station. The 11-storey building has recently undergone a major HVAC refurbishment and Armstrong Fluid Technology was asked to provide a proposal for the project. The existing pumps, which were fixed speed end suction models, were reaching the end of their useful life.

Armstrong Fluid Technology Announces New Variable Speed Retrofit Package

Posted by Armstrong Fluid Technology on Jul 19, 2016 12:46:54 AM

As Seen on - July 18, 2016

The Design Envelope Vertical-In-Line Retrofit allows building owners to replace the moving parts of an installed Armstrong constant speed pump while retaining the existing pump casing, insulation and piping. This new solution reduces the costs for equipment, shipping and scrap as well as installation labor.

The Design Envelope Vertical-In-Line Retrofit provides owners of existing constant speed pumps with an opportunity to save up to 70% on energy costs by upgrading to variable speed. Design Envelope technology accommodates future changes in flow requirements and its variable speed operation means longer equipment life (20%-30%), and greater reliability.

Part 1 of a 3-part article on why VRFs are gaining ground, popular refrigerants may be phased out, and pumps present an overlooked way to save energy.

By Rita Tatum July 2016

Once it has been designed and installed, the HVAC system is something the facility manager has to live with for a long time. Heating and cooling equipment has a long life cycle, and because of the cost of replacement, it may well be kept in service even after the end of its projected useful life.
