What are the benefits of electrical submetering?

Energy management is a growing practice among companies that operate large buildings, campuses, and other complex facilities. Successful energy management requires detailed information on how energy is being used. However, this valuable information is not available in facilities being actively monitored. For effective energy management, facility engineers need to understand exactly how and where energy is being consumed on their properties.

Are your chillers driving up your utility bill?

HVAC and refrigeration systems represent between a quarter and a third of total electricity consumption in an average commercial building. Chillers are responsible for over 40% of that demand, making up between 10-12% of a building’s total electricity usage and presenting an opportunity for cost savings. So why are HVAC chillers rarely optimized for efficiency?

How NASA technology streamlined the calibration process

 Technicians at the Kennedy Space Center often work in cleanrooms, laboratories with high degrees of cleanliness provided by strict control of particles such as dust, lint, or human skin. These facilities must be contaminant-free environments where the air is repeatedly filtered and surfaces are smooth to prevent particles from getting lodged.

Why you need to calibrate pressure sensors in a cleanroom

There are many applications for differential pressure transducers, but none are more critical than those measuring the pressure parameters in a cleanroom. A cleanroom is a critical area used to manufacture medications, containers, enclosures, and other medical devices that require the products to remain sterile from manufacturing through delivery to the customer. The products manufactured in these environments are used to treat and care for the general population and are handled differently than other products.
