Nature with Panasonic & the Dome Experience


he team at Panasonic have been working in collaboration with architects, engineers and local crafts

people to create an unfiltered, unique and comfortable luxury living experience in bubble style Domes to bring a 180-degree transparent window to the world of nature. Each Dome is kitted out with Panasonic Aquarea Fan

Coils which are connected to air to water Panasonic Aquarea Monobloc heat pumps for quick reaction heating and cooling as well as domestic hot water. Panasonic additionally supply DX ERV units to maintain a constant air flow rate. Furthermore, each Dome can be monitored via the Panasonic Aquarea Smart Cloud technology to maintain the optimal environment for each guest. The Domes are proving popular, with seven initially

installed at the Finn Lough Resort in Northern Ireland which has recently increased to 14 Domes due to the high demand.

Applications for plate heat exchangers on the rise T

he planet’s gradually diminishing fossil fuel reserves and environmental pressures are making technologies, such as solar thermal, ground or water

source heat pumps and harvesting waste heat, worthy of consideration for many new residential and mixed-use developments. High performance plate heat exchangers are ideally suited for different applications within such schemes. One of the most stable sources of renewable energy is open water, including

rivers, estuaries and lakes, though harvesting it is complicated both practically and from the aspect of protecting aquatic life. For a recent project drawing water from the Thames near Waterloo, however, a

Stokvis bare plate heat exchanger was installed to transfer heat from the river water to water source heat pumps. The unit operates at 99% efficiency while protecting the WSHP’s components contamination and corrosion. Where salt water is involved, stainless steel plates can be swapped for titanium.

National Specialist at Spirax Sarco, the Fundamentals of Steam Quick Start Guide aims to offer a helping hand to plant managers to re-acquaint themselves with the fundamentals of steam and identify areas of improvement.

The Guide identifies key areas when working

with the wet side of the boiler, including: how boilers produce steam, the types of boiler used and the condensate loop.

Additionally, the guide highlights five key

tests that plant managers should consider carrying out.

Chris Coleman “By re-acquainting yourself with the fundamentals of steam, you as a plant manager

can build the requisite knowledge you need to identify areas of improvement within your plant and to boost your efficiency”, says Chris.

Chris concludes: “It is my hope that this guide will serve as a useful reference tool for

plant managers, particularly when it comes to that all-important plant upgrade. “We could all benefit from a reminder on the fundamentals of steam from time to

time. If the advice in this guide is followed, plant managers will find that they’ll be a smooth operator in no time”.
