Transparent Energy Monitoring with the Belimo Energy Valve™
The Belimo Energy Valve™ is an electronic pressure independent control valve with software-based services and cloud connectivity, measuring flow and temperature to monitor coil performance and energy consumption while maintaining the optimal Delta T. Automatic reports show actual and historical performance data, recommending the further potential for energy savings, predictive maintenance and troubleshooting. It supplies a BMS system with the information it needs to control central plants in the most energy-efficient manner possible.
Belimo Celebrates the Production of the 100 Millionth Actuator
At the beginning of 2020, Belimo produced its 100 millionth actuator and in doing so reached another milestone in the company's history. Today, hundreds of thousands of buildings around the world incorporate Belimo actuators into their HVAC systems.
The Swiss based World Market Leader for field devices for controlling and regulating heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems continues its growth course by reaching this milestone as well as the demand for innovative products that sustainably increase comfort, energy efficiency and safety in buildings.
Ultrasonic Flow Sensor with Glycol Measurement
Trusted flow measurement is essential in maximizing HVAC system efficiency and ensuring occupant comfort. Belimo’s new flow sensor utilizes ultrasonic transit-time technology to provide accurate and repeatable flow measurements of water and water/glycol mixtures without drift in any HVAC application.
Multi-point wet calibrated to ensure accuracy and repeatability.
Patented temperature and glycol compensation logic eliminates manual calibration.
±2% accuracy of reading and ±0.5% repeatability ensure accurate and precise flow measurement.
Providing Life Safety in the McMenamins Elks Temple in Tacoma, Washington
Constructed in 1915, the historic Elks Temple Building falls along Tacoma's (WA) well-known Broadway and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In 2012, the Elks Temple was acquired by the McMenamins; after more than four decades of being abandoned. The building renovation started in 2017 with an aim to restore and preserve to the early 20th-century architectural design and character of the theater adding a restaurant, bars, hotel rooms, event spaces, and an operational brewery. To protect the assets of the historic building and ensure the safety of the people, Belimo’s fire and smoke damper actuators were installed.
Technology that Saves Lives
Fire protection in buildings is based on three main pillars: structural, technical and organizational fire protection. Technical fire protection is more important than ever, especially in modern buildings with unusual designs, mixed use or increasing building complexity and size. Belimo addressed this topic very early on, especially with regard to technical fire protection. As far back as 1978 – three years after its foundation – Belimo sold actuators that could be mounted on fire dampers. In the meantime, Belimo has become the world market leader in the motorization of fire and smoke control dampers with well-founded expertise and experience.
