Fresh Air! Bring it in

Armcor_FreshAir_Bring It In

In Australia we have relatively clean air, compared to the World Health Organisation (WHO) report which estimates that 9 out of 10 people worldwide breathe polluted air. A quick visit to breathelife20131.org for a particular March day gave the pollution levels in Sydney at 20% below the WHO guideline levels, Brisbane was 30% below, Perth was 20% below, and Adelaide was 30% below.

This is great news for most Australians and means that the introduction of outdoor air into your working, eating, sleeping and play indoor areas is an easy way to improve your indoor air quality that naturally gets compromised by odour, moisture and high carbon dioxide levels.

The maximum ambient temperature on this same relatively warm March day in Sydney was 31C, Brisbane was 30C, Perth was 35C and Adelaide was 25C. It is obvious that the only drawback to introducing this fresh outdoor air is the considerable energy consumption to condition the amount that we want to introduce.

If we handle this appropriately with energy recovery and based on an average desirable indoor temperature of 21C, the industry and commercial sector could benefit immensely, improving IAQ whilst minimising energy costs and resources. Check the Armcor range of ERV equipment today.

Air Quality Linked to Happiness?

Air Quality Linked to Happiness

Suffering from anxiety or stress?
A study by the Chinese Hong Kong University shows a direct correlation between happiness and air quality. As consumers begin to focus on health in everyday decisions, the growing concern around air quality is creating a new awareness of products and services that could provide solutions.
So what happens on a smoggy day? A report suggests that on days with high levels of pollution, people are more likely to engage in impulsive and risky behaviour that they may later regret, possibly because of short-term depression and anxiety.
So we just stay indoors. But then the indoor air quality starts to become drained of oxygen, The CO2 levels rise, humidity levels rise, and this may make us more anxious and grumpier than ever.

So the answer? Create an indoor air quality that is healthy, safe and feels good.

How can we do that? Could we create a forest indoors, so mother nature assists us or can we rearrange our climate control system to facilitate a quality environment.
Focusing on mechanical options, put simply, we need to introduce the right proportion of fresh air to manage the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, it needs to be filtered, it needs to be efficiently heated and cooled, it may need to be dehumidified……and in the process our lifestyle moods may be positively affected.

Applicable equipment to pre-treat fresh air and recover energy is becoming more readily available such as a range of equipment offered by Armcor Air Solutions.

Data centre cooling is a major consideration to protect sensitive heat generating equipment. With the development of ultra-powerful processors, the energy consumed, and the heat produced are proportionally increasing.

Cooling system design is changing dramatically. Providing a maximum cooling approach is being superseded by utilizing sophisticated economy systems that incorporate humidity and temperature control technology. Today’s cooling systems not only focus accurate capacity matching, but they must also incorporate energy efficiency, predictable operational costs, light load efficiency, reduced footprint, be highly reliable, and capable of future expansion.

Recent improvements in data centre cooling technology have developed different perspectives in comparing the use of chilled water, refrigerant, indirect evaporative, or energy recovery cooling. Depending on the entity requirements, the budget, and the ambient conditions, current cooling approaches may involve a combination of traditional and innovative equipment.
The days of keeping a data centre below 15°C may be over. Old standards are being challenged and, in many cases, operating a warmer data centre, even up to 24°C / 50%RH may be more efficient and more reliable.

Armcor Air Solutions has been involved in the design of multiple data centres for some of the largest Australian DC operations, significantly contributing to the fresh air treatment that is essential for the indoor air quality and the control of CO2 levels for safe people access.

Data Centre Airconditioning

Armcor Air Solutions are the experts in manufacturing Data Centre Airconditioning. Many data centres offer their customers 100% Uptime Guarantees, Disaster Recovery, Large Capacity Storage and Connectivity at your Fingertips.

That means that effective and efficient cooling is a critical component to keeping the infrastructure to be able to maintain the temperatures within the strict operational parameters.

IT equipment consumes electricity and leaves behind heat as a by-product. This heat, if not treated successfully, will build up to the point where sensitive equipment is damaged or destroyed. This creates the need is to somehow remove the heat.

Moving heat requires energy, that costs money in both capital and operational expenses. As companies seek to control the power consumption of data centres, cooling is a major target. By incorporating energy recovery which requires less energy and infrastructure than more-traditional cooling methods. Air distribution patterns are important and the ‘raised floor’ or ‘hot aisles and cold aisle’ designs are the most common ways to effectively ensure an effective and efficient ventilation pattern.

But most important is the selection of effective and efficient equipment. The utilization of fresh air not only provides the necessary ventilation requirement for human occupancy while essential servicing is undertaken, but it can also become its own economy cycle’

Often outdoor air will need to be treated and filters can easily remove the dust and pollen. Humidity often needs very specific attention and this is where specialised design and dehumidification processes have developed over the past years to the point where they are commercially viable and the ROI is an attractive proposition for energy saving management.

Armcor Air Solutions manufactures a complete range of Data Centre Airconditioning using Energy Recovery and Dehumidification equipment specifically designed for data centres.

Churches of Christ in Queensland is building a master planned campus on vacant Parklands Boulevard land. The $28 million first stage of the ‘Churches of Christ Campus Meridan’ will create a variety of activity spaces and services and will include multi-purpose community centre, café, seniors care accommodation and home care and support services.
The state-of-the-art residential aged care service will accommodate seniors in a series of themed cottage-style one and two storey buildings. The community hub will be available for local community groups and Meridan Campus residents to enjoy as part of the integrated community lifestyle. The hub includes a cafe, hairdressing salon and auditorium.
“The aged care service will provide the best in care to enable local seniors to age in place with no need to move from their community if their care needs change.”
One of the largest and most diverse not-for-profit organisations in Queensland, Churches of Christ in Queensland already has a significant presence throughout the state. This includes early childhood, child protection, retirement living, housing services, churches and missional services, home and community care and residential aged care services supporting communities including the Sunshine Coast.

 

The Challenge

Community projects have a requirement for fresh air which in Queensland requires introducing air at temperatures above the comfort level. Energy recovery is the obvious choice to maintain efficient operating costs.

 

The Armcor Solution

Armcor had the correct size equipment that was suited to the specification The XEP4000 unit was used and optional economy dampers were added to achieve the economy cycle operation to further increase efficiencies and make the most of the reduced ambient early morning and late evening.
A CO2 sensor is used to modulate the dampers to maintain the correct indoor air quality.

Being a full packaged airconditioning unit it is able to fulfil the total requirement for energy recovery and also provide temperature control to ensure the occupants are comfortable 24/7.

North Gungahlin

THE CLIENT – North Gungahlin Primary School
Construction has begun on the new North Gungahlin primary school in Taylor with the first students to start school there at the beginning of the 2019 school year.
The new school is projected to cost $32.069 million, with funding allocated from the 2015-16 and 2017-18 ACT Budgets.
It will cater to students from preschool to Year 6 from Taylor, Moncrieff and Jacka – the first suburbs being developed as part of the North Gungahlin development.

“This new modern school facility will cater for 88 preschool and 600 primary school students when it opens for Term 1 2019, providing capacity for quality public education in this high-growth region,” Ms Berry said.
“The planning will also allow for the accommodation of an additional 44 preschool students and 150 primary school students through expansion if required to cater for future growth.”

“The new school will also include a resource centre, canteen, out-of-hours school care facilities, and great outdoor learning and play areas.
“Importantly, the school will also have specific facilities for music, and curriculum enrichment programs such as Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics to ensure we are equipping our students for the best possible future.”

THE CHALLENGE
Education facilities and classrooms require airconditioning and fresh air.
Using Temperzone split airconditioning units, the standard fan coils do not have provision for any heat recovery from the exhaust air. To enable efficient operational costs the addition of ERV is essential.

THE ARMCOR SOLUTION
Armcor was able to provide an ERV slim line fan coil that could be installed in a ceiling space that would provide heat recovery whilst still being compatible with the Temperzone condensing unit. Five units, with the required right and left handing were supplied to satisfy the requirements.
The positive results come from eliminating the need to install 2 separate pieces of equipment – both the heat recovery and the DX cooling coil are housed in one unit along with the supply fan.
This saves valuable and expensive installation labour time.

Once a working class suburb, North Melbourne is now a snappy, stylish strip with pretty terrace houses, award-winning cafes and a happening arts scene.

Its urban coolness has been further enhanced with addition of Arden Gardens, a new residential building which combines the best of local retail with residential luxury.

A collection of contemporary 1-4 bedroom apartments in two residential towers with stunning, uninterrupted city views, the building has embraced the new norm for premium, mixed-use development by combining a vibrant retail precinct at street level.

With Woolworths as the anchor tenant, this on-site retail precinct includes a variety of specialty retail stories conveniently on offer for both residents and the general public.

When mechanical consultant for the Arden Gardens Woolworths project, JBA Consulting Engineer, went in search of an air handling solution, Armcor was the logical selection.

The companies had worked together on multiple Woolworths’ stores.

JBA was also confident Armcor could meet the exacting requirements of the project: an air handling solution designed and built to Woolworths’ specifications that would enable an enjoyable shopping experience for supermarket customers.

The result is a custom-built solution capable of providing the main trading area with 14,500 l/sec supply air and 4,200 l/sec fresh air and which incorporates economy cycle dampers, direct expansion cooling coils, a heating coil, deep bed air filters and EC plug fans.

Plaza Premium Lounge is the world’s first independent airport lounge provider. Its facilities are open to all travellers, regardless of the airline or travel class they are using and has changed the perception that airport lounges should be reserved for premium travellers only.

The lounges are also focussed on giving travellers a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the airport by providing top-notch services and facilities for those arriving, departing and transiting an airport.

This includes comfortable seating, an enticing food and beverage selection, shower with amenities, private resting suites, VIP rooms, recharging stations, complimentary Wi-Fi, computer workstations, and so on. The goal is to make the airport experience seamless and effortless.

A global brand, the airport lounge network has facilities in Brisbane, Sydney and more recently in Melbourne.

As the first airport lounge network to achieve ISO 9001:2008 certification, Plaza Premium Lounge is committed to providing consistently high services and continual improvement for valued customers.

So when contractor, Infinite Group, went in search of an air-conditioning unit for the new lounge at Melbourne Airport, its requirements were very exacting: it needed a high quality slimline air handling unit that incorporated bag filters, carbon filters, electric heating elements, a DX coil and energy efficient fans.

This was not something that could be ordered off the shelf.

Armcor was best placed to provide these requirements.
Combined with a Temperzone outdoor condenser, the air handling solution which is now fully installed provides the high levels of comfort expected of the new airport lounge.

HVAC units integral to reducing running costs for iconic Launceston hotel

Silos Tasmania

Housed in a 1960’s building containing four large grain silos, the Peppers Silo Hotel is a new state-of-the-art hotel complex overlooking the idyllic Tamar River Basin and Cataract Gorge in Launceston, Tasmania.

The 35-meter high silos have long been an iconic landmark on the edge of the town.

This post-war heritage building has now been reimagined into a sophisticated 9-storey hotel compete with function and entertainment facilities, offering sweeping views over the meandering Tamar river.

Designed within the original silos, the hotel complex includes the addition of a brand-new North tower, providing a contemporary contrast and adding character to the hotel.

Armcor supplied three packaged air-conditioning energy recovery ventilator (ERV) units to service the iconic hotel’s function centre.

Designed to provide the necessary fresh air while also recovering energy from exhaust air, the great advantage of the units is that heating and cooling is packaged together in one unit, making installation and servicing simple and efficient.

These economy cycle units will provide the bulk of cooling capacity for the function centre, dramatically reducing running costs.

Armcor worked in conjunction with its distributor, HVAC Supplies, to design and deliver these state-of-the-art heat recovery units to this outstanding Tasmanian icon while leading Tasmanian contracting company, Degree C, managed all installation work.
