New Products for HVAC Applications


P ackaged pumping system is a combination of pumps, electrical devices and controls for industrial and commercial buildings, designed to minimize energy usage for HVAC central plant systems. The system ranges from 400 to 4,200 gpm and includes constant-speed systems for primary chilled and condenser water, variable-speed systems for secondary chilled and variable-speed condenser water, and variable primary flow systems for chilled or hot water.

High-capacity circulators have a precision-balanced rotor for quiet, efficient operation in a wide range of medium to high/flow head hydronic heating and cooling applications. The series offers a close-coupled maintenance-free motor with permanently lubricated, sealed-for-life bearings. Typical applications include hydronic heating, in-floor radiant, snow melt, high pressure drop boilers, outdoor wood boilers, chilled water cooling, geothermal heat pumps, primary/secondary loops and hydro air fan coils.

HVAC steam software is a visual tool for engineers, designers and contractors to design and model HVAC steam systems using intelligent objects. The stand-alone, Windows-based drag-and-drop program allows for modeling of steam generation, steam distribution, steam utilization and condensate-handling systems. The program supports compiling of equipment schedules based on the manufacturer’s catalog. For more about HVAC Steam Solution from Spirax Sarco, click here .
