Designing Water Softeners for Today's Commercial Buildings

Description

For many commercial projects, water softeners are chosen based on two factors: the building's peak flow rate and the size of the unit. Often, little consideration is given to the potential water and salt efficiencies that a commercial softener can offer if properly designed.

Learn how commercial multi-tank systems are using Responsive Flow Design to produce consistently high quality softened water with no hard water slippage while saving significant water, salt and money. Multi-Tank Systems bring a series of smaller tanks on- and off-line as needed to properly service the building's flow rates at any given time. MTS systems have lower capital costs and will save your clients up to 50% of their annual operating costs by using less salt and less water. Plus, they can be easily expanded at any time.

If you're still specifying water softening equipment based on peak flow rates, it's time to learn about a new approach that enhances the performance of your building project by saving significant water, salt and money.

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.
