Dwyer offers several carbon dioxide measuring products that use non-dispersive infrared sensors as the sensing element. Carbon dioxide sensors are commonly used in building automation systems to monitor air quality. The level of carbon dioxide is indirectly proportional to the amount of people in a space and can be used to adjust ventilation for the space.
Dwyer Instruments, Inc. has solidified its presence in many markets and our versatility has allowed for our products to be implemented in a multitude of applications. Original equipment manufacturers and end users alike have been able to automate many processes that would otherwise be quite demanding and time consuming; one of which being home brewing! Home brewing and craft beers seem to be a growing trend across the country in recent years. With people developing an interest in creating a beer to their personal liking, many have found themselves dabbling in the world of home brewing. With a few ingredients, adequate equipment, and some patience, you can find yourself enjoying a Taylor-made beer!
When it comes to Building Automation and Management Systems, companies invest in the latest and greatest technologies to optimize their process efficiency. Many hours and thousands of dollars are spent to ensure minimum power consumption and reduced heating and cooling costs. However, the conversation of protecting these capital investments are a less frequent topic of discussion. Additionally, protecting the structural integrity of the facilities can be an afterthought. Any sign of moisture and leakage can be the beginning of a serious component failure. For this type of monitoring, Dwyer Instruments, Inc. offers the Model WD Water Leak Detector for protection against potential water or liquid damage.

This week is Air Quality Awareness Week, which is promoted by AirNow to discuss the importance of healthy air for everyone. One vital part of air quality involves monitoring humidity and temperature, so using an accurate outside humidity and temperature sensor can have a significant impact.
Most air handling units (AHUs) use what is called an economizer cycle. This is when outside air is mixed with the return air to cool the building dependent upon the outside temperature. However, if the air is too dry and requires humidification to accomplish this process, your cost savings may have been eliminated due to the AHUs humidity control, which provides excessive steam for this humidification procedure to take place. Consequentially, sometimes based on weather conditions, your economizer may just be costing you money instead of saving it. Continue reading “Outside Air Humidity”
