Compressors for commercial air conditioning

altCompressors with electronic devices allow to diagnose, protect and communicate, which contributes to greater reliability in commercial air conditioning systems. By Carlos C. Obella*

Being able to meet the current challenges in the commercial air conditioning industry is becoming increasingly difficult, due to the limited technical skill of some contractors and the need to reduce maintenance costs. This landscape requires new and innovative solutions. Emerson Climate Technologies features the factory-incorporated CoreSenseTM Electronics Scroll Compressor that improves performance and reliability by sensing and interpreting information found within the same commercial air conditioning system. This new technology combines the ability to diagnose, protect and communicate. It is originally installed from the factory on Copeland Scroll compressors from 20 to 40Hp and makes identifying the root cause of a problem in the system now much easier than ever before. By analyzing fault history and unique detection algorithms, technicians can diagnose much more accurately what has been happening in a system. The device displays nine alarm codes capable of alerting and preventing the most common failures; such as overheating, phase reversal, low voltage in the power supply or short start and stop cycles, among others. Thanks to the current technological level of existing controllers, technicians can have access to more information in real time, such as the internal temperature in the spirals, status of the internal sensors and the latest alarms, by analyzing the operating history of the compressor. These powerful tools allow the technician to prevent costly shutdowns, thanks to early and more accurate fault detection. The CoreSense electronic device monitors the operating conditions of the system and is able to turn off the compressor, when it is necessary to prevent it from being damaged. The protection of the compressor is carried out by incorporating sensors in the spirals and the motor, in addition to the detection of voltage and current, which prevents failures by cycling or by blocked rotor, before further damage occurs. In addition, it is possible to detect adverse operating conditions due to lack or reversal of power phases in three-phase compressors. The CoreSense system allows you to prevent costly shutdowns, eliminate major repairs, and minimize damage. In addition, it has the ability to communicate with the system controller, using a Modbus communication protocol and an RS485 connection. Each compressor can be identified individually in a system. This opens up the possibility of remote monitoring for the purpose of detecting faults before they turn into severe damage. Both end users and contractors can now diagnose problems more accurately in multi-compressor systems, saving time and money. The ability to deliver more information, make more accurate diagnoses, and offer greater reliability, makes these compressors become a technological alternative that can improve the performance of systems. alt *Carlos C.

Bienvenida a Air Conditioning for Hospitals Summit

Sesión 5: Desinfección en ambientes críticos bajo recomendaciones de ASHRAE

Esta charla estará enfocada en las recomendaciones de ASHARAE para la desinfección de ambientes críticos como lo son quirófanos o salas de hospitales, garantizando una ventilación adecuada para reducir el riesgo de infección. Nos enfocaremos en los productos que Carrier ha lanzado al mercado para cubrir esta necesidad inmediata. Ing.William Sanchez - Grupo Clima

Sesión 4: Minimizando las Infecciones Asociadas a la Atención de la Salud (IAAS)

Como se pueden minimizar las Infecciones Asociadas a la Atención de la Salud (IAAS) al proveer el flujo de aire y la presurización adecuada en los ambientes críticos. Roberto Rouanet, Business Developer Building Products - Siemens Colombia

Sesión 3: Hospitales: Salas de Presión Positiva y Negativa

Los centros hospitalarios tienen requerimientos de salas o zonas de presión positiva y negativa con el objetivo de proteger a sus pacientes, trabajadores y usuarios de las áreas de infecciosos (salas de presión negativa) o inmunodeprimidos (salas de presión positiva). Estos espacios aislados por diferencias de presión se consiguen a través de los sistemas de control de los equipos de climatización de las instalaciones. Estas salas de presión Negativa o Positiva son una parte imprescindible en centros médicos y de investigación, ya que ayudan a mantener las condiciones sanitarias necesarias para un ambiente limpio. Jose Jesús Arboledas Herranz, Responsable de proyectos especiales - KEYTER

Sesión 1: Panel - Buenas prácticas, normativas y errores en climatización para hospitales

Buenas prácticas, normativas y errores más comunes en los proyectos de climatización para hospitales Analizar cuáles son los temas en los que los ingenieros y técnicos deben capacitarse profundamente para desarrollar proyectos en esta clase de verticales que demandan instalaciones funcionales al 100% Roberto D'Anetra, Gerente - Climatiza Rómulo Laureano, Commercial Sales Manager - RGF-BIOCONTROLS Jose Jesús Arboledas Herranz, Responsable de proyectos especiales - KEYTER Roberto Rouanet, Business Developer Building Products - Siemens Colombia
