Condair is launching the RO-A reverse osmosis water filter, designed for use with humidification systems. The RO-A removes 95 per cent of dissolved solids from a humidifier’s supply water in order to reduce maintenance, improve energy consumption and benefit ongoing running costs.
When operating on regular mains water, a steam humidifier will frequently need to drain hot water and replace it with fresh, in order to dilute mineral levels in the boiling chamber. This process requires more energy to heat the incoming cold water. It also impacts humidity control, as when the boiling chamber’s temperature drops so does the steam output. By operating a steam humidifier on reverse osmosis (RO) water from a Condair RO-A, these drain cycles are reduced by up to 97 per cent. This in turn reduces energy and water consumption of the humidifier and enables a close humidity control of up to ±1 per cent RH.
Panasonic has unveiled AC Smart Cloud, an internet-based remote monitoring system that allows businesses to centralise control of Panasonic heating and cooling installations.
The system has been developed for the commercial market and simplifies the monitoring of installations across multiple locations without the need for specialist software. It has already been successfully installed in hotel, retail and business applications across Europe.
