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.
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.
Mechanical controlled ventilation is a design feature which enables building to keep the air clean and conditioned, without significant energy consumption. These devices have a decisive effect on the quality and comfort of the atmosphere in a building, especially for those living in cities where smog is an ever-present problem.
The dilemma of replacement versus repair when shell and tube heat exchangers encounter operational problems is quite common. Such devices are quite delicate and in order to work properly, it is essential that their structure is in perfect condition and there are no defects.
The Covid-19 pandemic, which is still forcing many people to stay at home, has highlighted just how useful technology can be in such difficult times. During this long period of imposed isolation, owning a smartphone to keep in contact with loved ones or living in a high tech home, has been extremely useful when dealing with such a dramatic situation
Chillventa 2020 is one of the most important international trade fairs in the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air conditioning) sector, held every two years in Germany. The next edition (originally planned for 15th-18th October), nevertheless, is at considerable risk of being cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
