Climate Control for the New Industrial Landscape:
Supporting IIoT and Industry 4.0 for the Future

Description:  

The convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) is the key characteristic of the evolution of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 in the manufacturing space.  Add next generation artificial intelligence (AI)/Industry 5.0, and the future can look very imposing.
These two disciplines are becoming increasingly united in a high-technology, hyper-connected industrial platform.  A bridge is emerging between the digital and physical in manufacturing, leading to the “cyber-physical production system.”  On the factory floor, this means that humans, manufacturing and computational machines and other devices are interacting more closely.  Often they are found in spaces not specifically designed to support IT components such as servers and storage devices, network switches and related hardware.
A key component to support these deployments is climate control solutions tailored to meet the unique demands of the factory floor-IIoT installation.  This seminar will:

  • Identify applications driving IIoT & Industry 4.0
  • Review specific requirements of the factory floor installation
  • Discuss ASHRAE Thermal Guidelines for IT equipment
  • Provide an overview of various climate control solutions available

The goal: Provide the audience with a comprehensive overview of Climate Control solutions to support the installation challenges of IIoT and to ensure a safe and stable installation.

Mitsubishi Electric: A New Era of Efficiency:
Advances in Water Source VRF Technology

 

Broadcast Live May 23, 2018 at 2 p.m. ET 
Presented by Mitsubishi Electric
 

Summary

Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning technology provides personalized occupant comfort and impressive energy efficiency. VRF has quickly gained acceptance in the U.S. – becoming a half-billion-dollar segment of the market in just over a decade. One facet of the technology contributing to that growth has been advances in water source VRF technology. In this hour-long webinar, speakers Kevin Miskewicz and Charlie Landherr will discuss the recent technological developments that have ushered in a new era of efficiency.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore how the demand for higher energy efficiency has guided HVAC manufacturers.
  • Analyze how water and air source VRF differ, and the various features and benefits of each.
  • Identify why so many engineers use water source VRF to learn LEED® points.
  • Examine how VRF can be paired with a geothermal, or other closed loop, system.

Belimo: District Cooling & the Effects of Low Delta T

Broadcast Live March 27, 2018 at 2 p.m. ET 
Presented by Belimo
 

Learning Objectives

  • Identifying the importance of system design and pumping arrangements
  • Understanding the relationship between GPM and Delta T
  • How to calculate Btu and Tons
  • The types of district cooling building connections
  • Why maintaining Delta T is important in a district cooling system

Description:

Chilled water provided from a utility plant is commonly used in a building’s HVAC system in lieu of installing chillers. Lower return water temperatures or low Delta T (ΔT) decreases the efficiency of the entire chilled water system. This condition is known as “Low ΔT Syndrome”. Low ΔT syndrome is the result of the inefficient use of chilled water at the point of consumption. This presentation will provide a review of district chilled water system design and how low ΔT impacts both the chillers and the buildings the chillers are serving. We will also cover low ΔT and how it impacts pumping, causes of low ΔT, attempts to correct low ΔT and the relationship between low ΔT and chiller capacity. In conclusion, we will review a study of a building where “Low ΔT Syndrome” was corrected at the point of water to air heat transfer.

Closed loop systems - open tower/heat exchanger or fluid cooler – which is best for your application?

Presented by BAC

Description:

In this Webinar, we'll review how closed loop cooling systems deliver many benefits compared to traditional open loop systems, such as reduced fouling, less risk of fluid contamination, and increased system reliability and uptime. Several methods can be used to "close the loop", including the use of an open circuit cooling tower coupled with a plate & frame heat exchanger or the use of a closed circuit cooling tower, also called a fluid cooler. The Webinar will contrast maintenance and operational implications between these alternatives along with a comparison of total installed costs, including equipment, material, and labor. The results will help guide system designers and operators to make the best heat rejection choice for their next project.
