Fire-alarm system design
An online form enables customers to request that System Sensor design their FAAST fire-alarm-aspiration-sensing-technology projects. Customers simply fill out and submit a questionnaire located at systemsensor.com/faastq to provide FAAST design engineers with project data, detection type, room dimensions and usage, device location, and facilities drawings. System Sensor’s engineers then design a system and deliver the layout and bill of materials for the project. —System Sensor

Heat exchangers
Air-to-air heat exchangers include plate models ranging in size from 8 in. to 95 in. with capacities to 60,000 cfm and efficiencies of up to 80 percent, as well as rotary-wheel exchangers ranging in diameter from 20 in. to 95 in. with capacities of up to 30,000 cfm and efficiencies of up to 90 percent. —Recuperator USA      

Ceiling-mount air conditioner
The CMW30 water-cooled, ceiling-mount air conditioner is designed for server rooms and other applications with dense heat loads, but where an air-cooled model cannot be used becuase of a lack of space.  The compact, self-contained CMW30 is only 20-in. high, enabling it to fit above a drop ceiling. —MovinCool  

 Flue-gas economizer
The EcoFlex 90+ system packaged fan-powered flue-gas economizer can be installed in any part of a chimney horizontally or vertically. It can be used in conjunction with any gas-fired heating appliance and is suitable for use with draft-hood-and draft-diverter-equipped heating appliances. It allows multiple boilers to share a single economizer.

Split-universal shaft-grounding kit
The split-universal-mounting-kit version (Split uKIT) of  the AEGIS SGR bearing-protection ring protects the bearings of variable-frequency-drive (VFD) motors from electrical damage and allows quick and easy retrofitting of the ring on virtually any AC motor shaft without decoupling attached equipment. The kit includes a split grounding ring and mounting hardware to facilitate mounting on virtually any NEMA or IEC motor faceplate. —Electro Static Technology   

Duct-cleaning system
The aiR+ XP air-duct-cleaning system has been revamped to clean ductwork in commercial facilities easily and effectively. The aiR+ XP machine offers double the power compared with the original aiR+. It also features  an additional 15 ft of hose and oversized brushes for larger ductwork. —Rotobrush   

 

 

 

Evaporative-cooling unit
The Hurricane portable evaporative-cooling unit utilizes high-efficiency cooling pads and water to naturally cool up to 3,500 sq ft and lower temperatures by up to 30°F. The unit’s design provides 67-gal. water capacity and airflow delivery of 14,500 cfm. —Port-A-Cool    

Thermal-imaging cameras
The Predator Series of thermal-imaging cameras feature manual focus, optional interchangeable lenses, and high-resolution displays to provide accurate thermograms. On-camera analysis tools increase operator efficiency by allowing real-time access to and collection of all relevant data. —General Tools & Instruments    

 

Humidity and temperature meter
The HUMICAP HM40 hand-held humidity and temperature meter is available in both standard and remote-probe models. The remote probe increases the versatility of the meter by enabling convenient measurements in ducts and other difficult-to-reach or confined places. Other features include an interchangeable HMP113 probe. —Vaisala  

 

 

 

 

Hydrocarbon compressors
A full range of hydrocarbon compressors includes low-temperature cooling capacities from 520 Btuh to 4,780 Btuh and high-temperature capacities from 4,700 Btuh to 10,125 Btuh. Hydrocarbon systems help reduce energy consumption compared with synthetic fluids in commercial applications and have nearly no global-warming or ozone-depletion potential. —Embraco 


Building automation and control
Lynxspring’s full portfolio of open building-automation and control solutions includes JENEsys Harmony, a NiagaraAX-based solution that reduces commissioning time, complexity, and costs on project deployments while providing owners the ability to create integration standards and enforce repeatable and consistent engineering practices. —Lynxspring  


Easily fasten PEX to wire mesh
The Smart Clip System saves both time and radiant-system installers’ backs. It adjusts to the installer’s height and allows the installer to walk along—rather than bend over—when attaching radiant-tubing clips to a radiant system’s wire mesh. —Mr. PEX Systems        

 

 

Closed-circuit cooling tower
The PF2 induced-draft, counterflow cooling tower is designed for systems that benefit from dry operation in severely cold weather. The PF2 offers the flexibility to operate in evaporative-cooling mode to minimize energy usage or in dry mode for extreme winter conditions. —Baltimore Aircoil Co.     

 

Server-rack cooling
The Chilled Door system for high-density server racks has enhancements including an increased cooling capacity of up to 45 kw per standard rack using 65°F chilled water and centrifugal fans with electronically commutated motors to improve airflow while reducing power consumption and noise levels. —Motivair    

 

 

 

 

VFDs with bypass option
The P-Series line of variable-frequency drives (VFDs) now features an energy-management-bypass option (EMB) that includes integrated power metering and a BACnet interface. The option ensures uninterruptible operation of HVAC systems, even if the drive is taken out of the loop, such as for reprogramming or maintenance operations. P-Series VFDs are available in a range of packages from 1 through 400 hp. —Cerus Industrial
