Glycol Feed System for Chiller Condenser Water Loop | Antifreeze Protection

Glycol Feed System for Chiller Condenser Water LoopGlycol is like antifreeze and is used in chilled water piping loops to prevent freezing. Everyone knows when the pipes freeze they also break and start leaking. Having antifreeze in a chilled water loop is important to prevent freezing. (more…)

Actuators for Chilled Water Valve | DDC Commercial Systems

Actuators for Chilled Water Valve Control Commercial HVAC SystemsActuators for Chilled Water Valve – These chilled water actuators control the flow rate for a chilled water system in a data center. There are various sequence of operations for chilled water systems and the sequence of operation is usually always different from one chiller plant to another chiller plant. (more…)

Chilled Water Pipe Vibration Isolators | HVAC Piping

Chilled Water Pipe Vibration Isolators
Chilled Water Pipe Vibration Isolators - Vibration isolators protect the chilled water piping from receiving vibrations transmitted through the piping when the chillers are running. The vibrations can create problems not only for the chilled water piping but also for the building’s structure. The vibration isolators reduce or eliminate the vibrations that can be transmitted by the chillers. (more…)

Heat Trace Tape Control for HVAC Piping

Heat Trace Tape Control for HVAC PipingHeat Trace Tape Control for HVAC Piping - HVAC Piping systems, especially in the Northern regions, need a way to freeze protect piping the runs outdoor which is a necessity in many different HVAC application. To protect HVAC piping from freezing heat trace tape is wound around the pipe and controlled by an outdoor thermostat or temperature control that energizes the heat trace tape and keeps the pipe from freezing.

Chilled Water System Basics | HVAC Cooling

Chilled Water System Basics
Chilled Water System Basics - Chilled water systems work much the same way as direct expansion systems work. The exception is they use water in the coil rather than refrigerant. Technically speaking, water can be classified as a refrigerant. Chilled Water systems can be rather complex and many chilled water systems are found in commercial and industrial applications. There are some chilled water systems used in residential applications. (more…)
