15 & 16 September 2015, NEC Birmingham, Stand No C38
Airedale Air Conditioning, Leeds, UK, August 5, 2015
British air conditioning specialist, Airedale International, returns to this year’s Energy Event – the UK’s leading event for energy and utilities procurement.
At this year’s event, Airedale will be showcasing its significant knowledge of energy saving cooling technologies, controls integration and retrofit expertise through a range of interactive display models.
On show will be the Ecotel™ (5-19kW), a high efficiency, self-contained outdoor cabin cooler, which takes advantage of low ambient temperatures in the UK, by offering integrated concurrent free-cooling for up to 96% of the year and a typical 70% reduction in energy consumption, ideal for telecoms and rail based applications. Visitors to the stand will be able to obtain an energy analysis to see their annual running costs of such a unit by providing information regarding their site, peak load and design data.
Live demonstrations of the ACIS™ Building Energy Management System (BEMS) and an EC fan module will also be on the stand.
The ACIS™ Building Energy Management System manages cooling and other building services through a single integrated system. ACIS™ allows you to control and sequence system performance, availability and power draw, and provides you with valuable energy analysis, remote monitoring, reporting and diagnostic tools giving you full visibility of plant. Through the software, temperature set points can also be adjusted, maximising time spent in energy saving free cooling mode and reducing the need for more costly mechanical cooling.
The EC fan module demonstrates the energy-saving benefits of fitting EC fans to existing units. The coloured bouncing balls of the demonstration unit show that, although both fans are moving the same mass of air, the EC fans consume up to 70% less energy than their AC equivalents at part-load. The direct drive fans also remove the need for belt replacement, reducing maintenance costs and increasing uptime. Integrating Airedale controls will improve energy efficiency further by precisely matching speed to demand.
Other retrofit solutions include electronic expansion valves (EEVs) which can reduce energy consumption by up to 30% when fitted on Airedale or other manufacturers’ equipment.
Throughout the event, Airedale will be offering visitors the opportunity to sign up for a free Airedale 360 energy audit of their existing cooling/HVAC systems leading to a detailed estimate demonstrating potential energy reductions and projected cost savings.
