Moe Salem presented a technical paper, Energy Performance of Evaporative Recovery (ER) Using Cooling Tower & Coil Arrangements, the revolutionary game changer solution for energy recovery that was implemented recently at the Mall Of Qatar in Doha.
HVAC professionals consider a multitude of variables when designing systems for grow rooms. But, one issue that often gets overlooked is odor control. Growers are often restricted in how they handle the crops’ distinctive odors. A proper HVAC system can help control odor issues without compromising the humidity and temperature controls that are vital to crop survival.
Air2O are proud to be exhibiting at the AHR EXPO 2017 In Las Vegas, Nevada from Jan 29-2017 to FEB 1-2017.
In recent years the use of the word “Hybrid” has been on the rise, due to its commercial effect of adding the illusion of being energy-efficient and environmentally conscious.
Data centers typically are high-density enclosed spaces that produce and distribute a significant amount of heat in a small area. This heat needs to be removed or the temperature within the data center will rise, and if the temperature rises enough, the equipment can be seriously impacted. Long-term, the impacted equipment leads to complete failure.
Data centers have very specific HVAC needs that are different from most other industrial settings. When selecting HVAC equipment and designing a system specifically for a data center, the following three considerations must be top of mind:
Indirect + Direct evaporative cooling (IDEC) is a viable method to keep temperature and humidity within the ASHRAE comfort zone throughout most of the Rocky Mountain region. Air2O, the next generation of air conditioning systems, recommends designing for 100% outside air when applying an IDEC system in most applications.
In 2014, US data centers constituted 1.8% of total US power consumption, and this number is only expected to rise in the coming years. Now, for many, 1.8% may seem low, but building designers know power consumption can easily skyrocket as more and more data centers are built, so they continue to look for ways to optimize data center energy use.
Commercial kitchens are the nerve center of a food-based business. Any problems in the kitchen can quickly spin out of control and harm the staff, customers, and even the business. A well-run kitchen not only requires a dedicated staff, it also takes a well-designed HVAC system.
Marijuana is one of the most valuable crops in the United States. The legal cannabis market grossed almost $9 billion in 2017. Analysts estimate that this industry will be worth as much as $21 billion in 2021. Like all other high-growth industries, the legal cannabis industry also presents opportunities for other businesses outside of the core cannabis growers and sellers.
