Life Safety Dampers: Types and Applications
In this article by Larry Felker, Belimo Senior Product Manager Fire Safety Dampers understand the differences between dampers and the control system requirements affecting their applications.
Chapter 7 of the International Building Code (IBC)1 requires life safety dampers to protect duct and air transfer openings within building separations — fire walls, fire barriers, fire partitions, horizontal assemblies, smoke barriers, and smoke partitions. It also focuses on compartmentation and the dampers used to prevent the spread of heat, fire, and smoke as they contain products of combustion. Chapter 9 of the IBC contains requirements for engineered smoke control system dampers. These are more varied in use, as they could be normally closed then opened to provide makeup air for atria, opened to pressurize a space to prevent smoke movement, or opened to exhaust smoke.

July 30, 2019 – Belimo Blog
The Glycol Measurement Challenge
Glycol is commonly used to prevent heat transfer fluids from freezing in heating, cooling, and air conditioning systems. It is typically found in systems where pipework is exposed to the exterior environment – rooftop units, free cooling, cooling towers – and also in green energy applications, such as solar thermal collectors. Glycol may also be used in district cooling systems – for example, in high rise properties – and low temperature energy networks serving a number of customers. However, the addition of glycol into any system can result in large errors in thermal energy measurement when using a meter intended for water alone.

Belimo Americas Ball Valve Assemblies
Each year, building owners across the globe invest millions of dollars into heating and cooling system upgrades in an effort to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and remain green. All too often, however, these upgrades fall short of expectations, and owners are left right back where they were - struggling to improve the environmental friendliness and cost reduction of their operation.
With Pressure Independent Technology (PI), this no longer is the case. Backed by real-time energy savings data, PI technology has a proven track record of optimizing heating and cooling systems through dynamically balanced flow control and subsequent improvement of low Delta T problems.

Code Required Testing of Life Safety Dampers
Building codes require the installation of life safety dampers for several purposes. Most are used to prevent the spread of heat, fire, and/or smoke in a life-threatening event. There are four essential types of life safety dampers: ceiling radiation, fire, smoke, combination fire and smoke. With three general applications, compartmentation to prevent heat, fire or smoke transfer across barriers, smoke control systems to prevent smoke movement within spaces or exhaust to the outside, and fire extinguishing or evacuation systems. Depending on the application, they have varying requirements for periodic testing.

Selecting the Perfect Valve Assemblies for Craft Breweries
A craft brewery (microbrewery) produces small batches of beer and usually are independently owned. These breweries emphasize quality, flavor, and unique brewing techniques. The craft brewery movement has grown significantly with some breweries expanding production, distribution, and included tasting rooms.
The overall steps in the brewing process are malting (a specialized process achieved by a malting company), milling, mashing, lautering, boiling, fermenting, conditioning, filtering, and finally packaging. Each of these steps is critical to the development process. Learn how making small changes can increase beer production by an average of 15%.

Why is it necessary to monitor CO2 concentration in buildings?
Controlling and monitoring indoor levels of carbon dioxide is essential for everyone’s health, safety, and the energy efficiency of buildings. Similar to how we need to breathe fresh air, so do buildings. Ventilation in a building is the essential process of replacing stale air with fresh air. Without engineered ventilation, buildings become susceptible to stagnant air, mold, bacteria, and potentially harmful gasses like radon, VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and carbon dioxide. Prolonged exposure to these elements can lead to “sick building syndrome” where occupants experience acute health and comfort effects. There are many different methods to bring fresh air into a building. A cost-effective way is to bring fresh air in only when needed using a CO2 duct sensor within the HVAC system.

The Importance of Measuring Air Pressure in Commercial Buildings
This article explains why and how to measure air pressure in commercial buildings ensuring occupant comfort and building efficiency. Topics covered include:
- Air pressure and how it affects commercial buildings
- Effects of not managing building air pressure correctly
- How to control the air pressure
- Measuring pressure
- Installation advice and setpoints
Air pressure is the weight of air molecules pressing down onto the earth and objects. (refer to Figure 1). For instance, cool air molecules are heavier and denser causing the force applied to a structure to be greater while warm air molecules are lighter and have lesser force on the building. There are other complicating factors such as wind, weather and seasonal changes, which will also produce variations in pressure.

Energieventile sorgen im Ludmillenstift Meppen für mehr Energietransparenz
Wissensvorsprung bei der Versorgung
Was einmal auf einem begrenzten Areal mit mehreren Gebäuden begann, ist über die Jahre immer weiter in der Fläche gewachsen. Diese Situation kennt man auch am Krankenhaus Ludmillenstift in Meppen. Durch den Einsatz intelligenter Energieventile können dort die Anforderungen an die Energieerzeugung und besonders die Energieverteilung - bedingt durch das ständige Wachstum des Krankenhauses - erfüllt werden. Damit wurde nicht nur Transparenz erreicht, sondern die Energie fließt auch genau dorthin, wo sie gebraucht wird.

Unsichtbar – aber elementar
Moderne Antriebslösungen für Pelletheizungen
Erneuerbare Energien sind eine der wichtigen Säulen der Energiewende. Durch den Einsatz von Pelletheizungen kann zum Beispiel jeder Hausbesitzer seinen Beitrag hierzu leisten. Pelletheizungen sind in Betrieb und Wartung mit Ölheizungen vergleichbar und erreichen einen Wirkungsgrad von in der Regel über 90 Prozent. Auch die Grenzwerte für Feinstaubemissionen werden bei einer optimierten Verbrennung je nach Hersteller deutlich unterschritten. Hierzu tragen vor allem eine innovative Brennertechnik und auch der Einsatz hochwertiger Antriebs-Komponenten bei.

Belimo will kein Alleskönner sein
Das Zürcher Unternehmen ist mit seiner Art der Produktion ein Vorreiter in der Industrie
Bei der Herstellung von Ventilen und Antrieben beschränkt sich Belimo auf die Montage. Die Einzelteile stammen von Lieferanten. Das steigert Belimos Rendite, setzt aber auch ein ausgefeiltes Risikomanagement voraus.

Lars van der Haegen: Mit viel Herzblut
Der Chef von Belimo liebt nicht nur das Unternehmen, sondern auch das Reisen.
Er hat das Amt als CEO von Belimo aus «Liebe zum Unternehmen» übernommen – und natürlich auch, weil ihn die Führungsaufgabe reizt. Seit dem 1. Juli 2015 führt Lars van der Haegen die operativen Geschicke der Herstellerin von Antriebslösungen für Heizungs- und Klimaanlagen. Der 48-jährige Schweizer mit belgischen Vorfahren fühlt sich wohl im Job, er würde diesen Schritt wieder machen. Man darf vermuten, dass der VR von Belimo die Wahl auch wieder so treffen würde: Der Aktienkurs ist seit der Amtsübernahme van der Haegens gut 40% gestiegen.
