eading multi‐specialist engineering contractor ECEX is launching an air handling unit (AHU) refurbishment and repair service designed to

extend the lifespan of existing AHUs, increase their operating efficiency, save energy, boost performance, and typically reduce running costs. The company's Managing Director John

Grenville said: "Complete replacement of an AHU is not always the best option. There are many compelling reasons to choose refurbishment and repair. "For example, in many cases it is less

expensive than replacing an AHU and offers the opportunity to upgrade the existing specification by taking advantage of the latest energy efficient EC plug fans and components.

by increasing installation flexibility, reduces downtime, overcomes the transport and access difficulties associated with replacing a unit, and is more environmentally friendly because it re‐uses existing equipment. "Furthermore, repair or

refurbishment can extend the service life of an AHU, it leaves existing services such as ductwork, pipework and wiring unaltered, and it can dramatically reduce energy consumption." The ECEX service covers the repair and replacement of all types of coils, belt drives,

suitable to applications such as hospitals, shopping centres, leisure facilities and hotels. Each parking bay is fitted with an ultrasonic sensor which will detect if the space is available therefore providing precise information to the exact number of available parking spaces and disabled bays as well as any reserved spaces. Displays using directional arrows and digits quickly guide the driver using the shortest route. A ceiling mounted 45° ultrasonic sensor mounted

at the entry of each space detects a vehicles presence and transmits precise information of the exact number of available parking spaces and disabled bays as well as any reserved spaces to displays situated around the area to indicate how many and where the spaces there are. Monitoring of lighting, ventilation, CO2 levels and

movement detectors are also possible with seamless integration into the BMS using BACnet is possible while DALI master or relays for lighting control allowing lighting to be dimmed or turned off whilst the use of I/O modules for ventilation fans can significantly reduce costs

innai has developed a new and innovative concept of economical and efficient hot water delivery specifically for gyms and fitness centres – bringing together all the components of a system in one bespoke pack for any operation, large or small, local and national. Rinnai recently supplied a growing High

Street gym estate with a custom‐built ‘gym pack’ that includes everything from design to delivery of a complete hot water system in one easy to install, fully specified and energy efficient ‘pack’ delivered direct to site. The site has reported excellent results from

the systems which have been installed in multiple sites over the UK, with more rolling out over the next couple of years. Says Rinnai’s Chris Goggin, “Simply supplying

a water heater unit (or multiple units) has become an antiquated notion that simply is not good enough. ‘System’ thinking, where we deliver to site the complete package, is what is

prone to failure that can adversely affect your business and your maintenance budget. By replacing them with new, energy‐ efficient pumps, you get reliable, low‐cost pump operation. This is what a large office building in central London did when they replaced obsolete


lder pumps not only consume too much energy, they are also

pumps with new, energy‐efficient models following a Grundfos Energy Check. The pumps now operate to meet the actual demand, and the new pumps are delivering a saving 318,000 kWh per year after they followed through on recommendations they received having undertaken a Grundfos Energy Check. This amounts to a massive saving of £30k p.a., a large reduction in CO2 emissions and a payback of just 2.8 years. Grundfos are typically

able to achieve savings of 30‐50% for customers with an Energy Check. As they point the way towards the optimal pump replacement that provide great energy savings. In addition, you will achieve reliable operation, reduced downtime and reduced repair costs. The result: greatly improved system reliability. Visit: V

Big news for the Grundfos Ecademy

rundfos have been running a successful on‐line

Ecademy since 2007 that has continued to gain in popularity. Until now the content has been mainly relevant to those plumbers/installers and merchants who are working in the domestic pump arena. Over the years we have added new elements and moved it to a new platform and today we are gearing up to launch this flexible learning platform to a new audience whose focus is on larger applications. This now means that consultants/specifiers as well as relevant distribution partners who work on larger type projects and applications will be able to get access a range of on‐line modules covering the following topics: uCommercial heating uMAGNA1

uMAGNA3 uWater boosting uAir conditioning uLife Cycle Costing. Each topic is broken down in

bite‐sized modules and a small gift is on offer for the successful completion of four modules (there is a short test at the end of each one). New subjects will be added later in the year. Get started on your learning

iega, the global manufacturer of piping systems has introduced

Megapress G connectors to the UK market. Megapress G ‘cold’ pressed connectors have been tested and Kitemark approved for natural gas and liquid gas applications as well as for heating oil, diesel fuels, compressed air containing oil and technical gases. The Megapress carbon steel

press connection system from Viega offers a fast, effective alternative to traditional methods such as welding. The system is a highly effective cold applied pressing method that helps to reduce installation time by around 60%.

The Megapress G connectors now make it possible to quickly and effectively connect natural gas and liquid gas systems. Suitable for use with black, galvanised or painted steel pipe, the sealing element of the Megapress G connectors guarantee the required degree of sealing, even where the pipe surface is rough. This makes it

ideal for retrofit installations in older properties. The range includes over 100

connectors and like other products in the Megapress range, features the tested Viega SC‐Contur technology. This ensures that any connections that have remained unpressed can immediately be identified in a dry leakage test – reducing downtime and servicing costs. To find out more about Viega’s
