The process of Italy’s digital transformation has been accelerated by the lockdown. The public’s knowledge of IT technology was already quite good, but many people have only discovered its true potential as a result of the exceptional circumstances caused by the recent Covid-19 pandemic.

The phase-out of HFC’s (Freon or Hydrofluorocarbons) is a measure designed to gradually reduce the impact of refrigerants on the atmosphere’s ozone layer. These substances are widely used in the HVAC sector, but also in domestic and industrial refrigeration (fridges, freezers etc.).
The decision to use R32 as the refrigerant gas in future air conditioning systems has become an ongoing, controversial debate. Some producers have embraced the switch to this gas, which has a very low GWP (Global Warming Potential), while others continue to delay this change which now seems inevitable.
The IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) is a special subcategory of the Internet of Things (IoT), used in the industrial sector. It involves equipment and analysis platforms which are connected to the internet, environmental sensors, complex industrial robots and much more.
Although less severe than the impact on other sectors, the impact of the coronavirus on the HVAC sector in the EU and USA has become apparent. There have been slowdowns, losses and unexpected issues, but just about every country has managed to find a strategy to limit the damage caused by Covid-19.
Covid’s impact on the environment seems to have had both positive and negative effects: on the one hand, the lockdown brought a temporary cease in the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere (especially in large industrialised cities), while, on the other hand, it provided some sectors with a chance to try and get around restrictions set out in pollution legislation.
In this article, in a very simplified way, we see what is meant by free cooling, and how it can be a valid alternative, convenient under the right conditions.Free cooling is a special cooling method which uses external temperatures to dissipate the heat inside a closed system. It is a very efficient solution which, if used in the right environments, can result in considerable savings.
Heat Exchanger Design Program: UNILAB UNISUITE – from the Journal of the KSME 2020. 5., vol. 60, no. 5, by Young Won
Our exclusive distributor for South Korea, Young Won is a member and director of KSME, the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers. In issue 60 of May 2020, Young published an overview of the UNISUITE software in the Journal of the KSME , entitled “Heat exchanger design program: UNILAB Unisuite “
The anti-coronavirus tracking apps developed by several countries have become a subject of debate and some consternation among many people who feel threatened by them and who are voicing their concern. However, this reaction is often based on a lack of real knowledge of how such systems work and the objectives of the software.
The correlation between the summer season, air conditioning and the coronavirus is currently a hot topic. With summer just around the corner, many people have started to wonder how the use of air conditioning systems might affect the spread of Covid-19.
Unilab is proud and honored to announce that the KIMM – Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials, from this year will use Unilab software!
