Controlling Critical Environments Efficiently
Reliable cooling circuits are crucial in critical environments. Pharmaceutical manufacturing plants require constant temperature and humidity control in order to guarantee quality, purity, and stability of their products.
The production plant of SwissCo Services in Sisseln, Switzerland runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
In order to meet their growing production demands, SwissCo makes it a priority to invest into optimizing the performance of their HVAC system. Besides the required ambient needs, the facility was challenged to optimize the energy efficiency of the cooling circuit while taking highest availability and maintenance requirements into account.
Belimo’s new butterfly valve assemblies are currently the most intelligent, energy efficient and reliable high flow solution in the HVAC market:
- Near Field Communication (NFC) allows for fast programming, commissioning, and troubleshooting
0% Leakage rate at 200 psi close-off pressure with self-adjusting valve design ensures reliable performance throughout the life of the valve
80% less power consumption with the new butterfly valve assembly
Reduced height and weight of the actuator allows easy installation
Flexible position indicator viewable from long distances for easy troubleshooting
"We like working with Belimo because we can depend on the reliability of the products," said Andreas Wechner, Project Manager & Field Controls Representative at Trane (Schweiz) GmbH.
The refitted HVAC system commissioned in May 2017 enabled energy savings of 128 000 kWh measured between and August 2017.
