VentAxia Offered Ways to Help Take Care of Your Lungs for ‘Love Your Lungs’ Week
entAxia shared ways to help take of your lungs and protect your household from indoor air pollution during Love
Your Lungs week. Indoor air pollution can affect lung health and is linked to increased risk of pneumonia, COPD and lung cancer.
If an asthma sufferer has an allergic reaction to a pollutant in the air, this can also make asthma symptoms worse. VentAxia has been committed to protecting public health by improving indoor air quality since 1936. As part of this commitment, VentAxia supported the Asthma UK and British Lung Foundation Love Your Lungs campaign, which raises awareness of lung health. To support the campaign VentAxia shared six
useful tips to help them take care of their lungs. For people with lung conditions, good indoor air quality (IAQ) is especially important. This is even more true during the COVID pandemic, which is
particularly dangerous to those with lung conditions. Key to tackling indoor air pollution and improving IAQ is to ‘reduce dilute – purify’ and so VentAxia shared the following tips: • Reduce the use of aerosols and use eco friendly cleaning products • Don’t smoke and avoid anyone smoking indoors • Don’t forget to ventilate • Stay active • Breathe deeply • Use an Air Purifier

presents MOLA®, a new device connector for the RST mini system
he new device connection clearly sets a signal for the future in the area of pluggability, as there is no comparable system on the market. MOLA® has unique qualities all concentrated
around its adaptability and ease of assembly. This is accomplished by the use of double conductor connections equipped with a pushin spring. The flexibility to prefabricate components at different locations and it’s suitability for automatic wiring ensure installations with a high degree of protection are greatly simplified. MOLA® was designed with luminaire
manufacturers in mind, although it can also be used in other applications. As a result, the flexibility of the connection can assist areas such as motors, heaters, and controllers in general. MOLA® is available in 2, 3, 4, and 5pole versions, and is intended for 20 mm through holes, making conversion to MOLA® a breeze.
The modular design ensures that, the internal wiring harness and the housing can be prefabricated separately. For special requirements, an optional contact seal can provide additional protection against moisture penetration, so that MOLA® can be used even under the most adverse conditions without any problems.
celebrating the good work employers are doing to promote and support positive mental health, and providing key recommendations on the specific areas where there is room to improve. Every employer depends on having healthy and productive employees – valued and supported staff are far more likely to perform better and achieve peak performance. Mental health problems are common among employees. Mind surveyed more than 42,000 employees across the 114 employers participating in the Index and included an additional section on the impact of Covid19. Siderise is committed to ensuring the wellbeing of its staff at all levels of the company. This is done through a variety of company policies and initiatives— including a Stress Policy, Flexible Working Policy and those covering workplace grievances— as well as a general companywide understanding on the importance of good mental health and wellbeing and supportive culture.

pumps will now be available with the option of using R515B, a lower GWP HFO refrigerant that has an A1 nonflammable classification.
A Originally both series of chillers
were developed with optimised compressors and heat exchangers, enabling them to use R1234ze, a low GWP A2L (mildly flammable) refrigerant and achieve a higher SEER value. But following extensive R&D,
customers can now use R515B, which is a nonflammable option to R1234ze.
R515B is an azeotropic
combination of R1234ze and small amounts of R227ea which suppresses the flammability. Tests confirm that R515B can achieve similar performance compared to R1234ze which both the WFGN and WFGI were originally designed for. Aermec’s WFGN chiller offers cooling capacities ranging from
489kW 1455kW with heating capacities from 545kW1601kW. Hot water can be produced up to 55ºC and chilled water down to 8ºC.
Whereas the WFGI series offers
cooling capacities in the range of 670kW 2406kW, with heating capacities ranging from 741kW 2664kW. The WFGI can produce hot water up to 65ºC and cooling down to 8ºC. The WFG and WFGN are designed for indoor installation and suitable for large sized services in commercial, industrial and residential buildings.

UVC Light System Mounted Within Air Handling Units Helps Improve Indoor Air Quality
powerful ultraviolet C (UVC) light disinfection system that targets viruses and bacteria is now available as an
integrated option on CIAT’s air handling units (AHUs). UVC light systems are a solution promoted through #CIAT4life, a campaign to spread awareness of CIAT’s advanced indoor air quality (IAQ) solutions and services to help create healthier indoor environments. CIAT is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe and sustainable building and cold chain solutions. UVC light has been used for more than a
century to disinfect public water supplies due to its ability to quickly and effectively inactivate potentially harmful pathogens. The modern, high performance UVC lamp system used on CIAT’s AHUs targets airborne, waterborne and surface microorganisms to improve IAQ. UVC lamps installed at strategic points within the AHU enclosure flood key areas in high energy, cleansing UVC light. A thorough threestep process decontaminates the coil surface, condensate in the drip tray and air passing through the AHU housing. The UVC radiation disrupts the molecular structure of pathogens, reducing risks.
The lamps are highly energy efficient, quiet
and lightweight, and their physical presence inside the unit has only a minimal effect on air pressure and AHU performance. As the UVC system is fully enclosed within the AHU’s metal housing, the UVC light presents no risk to users or building occupants. Additionally, all units include safety measures to avoid accidental exposure to technicians during maintenance. With a long lifecycle and minimal maintenance requirements, UVC offers a highly costeffective treatment for today’s indoor air hygiene challenges. “This innovation gives building owners and
facility managers a highly effective new tool in the armoury to address the risk from pathogens circulating in buildings and reduce infection risks,” said Juan Jose Francisco Diez, EU Airside Marketing Manager, CIAT. “It provides a high level of protection and reassurance as part of a programme of microbial mitigation and improved safety measures, and is particularly suitable for use in healthcare, offices, the food industry, hotels, schools, airports, leisure facilities, gyms, theatres and cinemas.” Three different configurations for UVC lights are available. In critical applications,

innovative patented self learning algorithm that automatically adapts itself to the specific compressor it is controlling, ensures an optimum starting current is achieved at every start. The RSBT is a 3phase controlled solution and is internally bypassed resulting in less heat dissipation inside the panel and offers enhanced inrush current handling and features internal semiconductor bypass technology. Field replaceable auxiliary for alarms or Modbus communication modules are available providing much more flexibility.

Technology for safer facetoface meetings
s normality returns, businesses will need to protect
staff from Coronaviruses and other microbiological hazards. “It’s not as simple as turning up the ventilation, or installing new ventilation,” claims indoor air quality expert Keith Esdon. “Viruses are spread by infected, possibly asymptomatic people, so it will be necessary to remove infectious particles from expired air when people meet. That is why we developed MeetingAir™, a low cost but highspecification air filtration device that sits in the middle of a meeting room table, drawing air from meeting participants and removing potentially hazardous particles.” Airborne pathogens spread when people either inhale infectious particles or touch infected surfaces and then touch their face. Contact transmission can be reduced by hand washing
Arms or 55 95 Arms in 120 mm wide housing for space saving in the panel or DIN rail mounting. “As energy efficiency
regulations continue to drive change towards more intelligent HVAC systems, the benefits of using soft starts to provide real time energy monitoring and faster fault finding are evident. The compressor is typically the largest energy consumer in a heat pump or chiller and measuring the energy in real time gives the option to monitor the overall system efficiency" says William Darby, Managing Director.

likely that people with flulike symptoms will stay at home, so the main risk will be from asymptomatic people, who will unknowingly exhale small viral aerosols (<5 μm), which settle less readily (similar to cigarette smoke) and are easily inhaled. The MeetingAir device will therefore help to reduce risk when people are in close proximity with others.
