Securing Buildings News

Many commercial, health-care, and school buildings experience inefficient HVAC-system performance, complaints concerning occupant comfort, and increasing operation and maintenance costs. Often, the culprit is non-functioning or underperforming damper actuators and control valves. Precision is key to a successful damper-actuator and control-valve retrofit. This online webinar will cover:   

Why Retrofit?

•    Upgrading from a pneumatic system to a Direct Digital Control system.
•    The system is not performing efficiently.
•    The valve or damper is performing properly.
•    Labor to retrofit verse replace.
•    Retrofitting from pneumatic to electronic.
•    Building can not be offline.
•    No replacement solution available.
•    Replacement solution does not fit the area.

What Damper Questions to Ask When Retrofitting

•    What does the manufacturer specify as the torque rating?
•    What is the total area of the damper?
•    What is the air velocity, static pressure or design CFM?
•    Opposed blade or parallel bland control construction?
•     Are there edge seals?
•    Is fail-safe actuation required?
•    What is the supply voltage and control signal to the actuator?
•    Can you direct couple to the shaft or is additional hardware required?

Control Solutions, Inc What Questions to Ask When Retrofitting/Replacing the Valve

•    Is the valve working properly?
•    No stem leakage
•    Valve is closing off properly
•    Are there any specific mounting considerations?
•    Height issues?
•    Obstructions?
•    What is your close off requirement?
•    Is fail-safe actuation required?
•    What is the supply voltage to the actuator?
•    What is the control signal to the actuator?
•    Can you isolate the valve?
•    How much space is available?
•    Is re-piping necessary?
•    What are the flow requirements (GPM)?
