Many people think that we get cold and flu viruses more often in the winter due to the cold temperatures outside; however, this can actually be attributed to the fact that we are inside more, thus being exposed to higher concentrations of pollutants. Poor indoor air quality can cause what has come to be known as sick building syndrome.
As discussed in previous articles and videos, pressure is the amount of force acting on a specific area and is equal to the force divided by the area. There are several types of sensing elements used inside pressure measurement devices. By understanding the components that make these products function and carefully comparing their specifications with your application requirements, you ensure the correct instrumentation is being used for your application. Today we’ll be discussing the functions of diaphragms and Bourdon tubes. Continue reading “Making Sense of Sensing Pressure”
In 2018, Dwyer released two globally recognized products to meet the demands of our customers in the HVAC industry: the Wireless Hydronic Balancing Kit and Insertion Electromagnetic Flow Transmitter. For the upcoming 2019 AHR trade fair in Atlanta, Georgia, the Dwyer team raised the bar another level with a slew of new product innovations that will debut at booth 5407.
Air balancing is the process of testing and adjusting an HVAC system to deliver the correct amount of air to each room of a building. The most common tool used in air balancing is an air flow hood, which measures the volume of air coming out of a diffuser in order to find areas of the system where the flow is limited. The 2016 Dealer Design Award-winning SMART Air Hood® Balancing Instrument, Series SAH, was designed by your HVAC market leader to be the most accurate and easy to operate air flow hood on the market. But what exactly gives the Series SAH an advantage against comparable products? Continue reading “8 Reasons to Buy the SMART Air Hood® Balancing Instrument”
