A big savings point is the efficiency of the equipment used to run your HVAC system—the motors, chillers, boilers, etc.
MacDonald-Miller standardized on the Fluke 902 Clamp Meter when it came out several years ago.
Harmonics-Understanding, measuring, and interpreting results.From minor control trips to compressor and transformer failures, harmonics can impact every type of HVAC equipment
Preparing ice for curling competitions with the aid of Fluke infrared camera, infrared thermometer, digital thermometer, and temperature humidity meter
Boilers and their associated systems are an important part of a modern commercial building's central energy plant. Prevent costly downtime and expensive equipment failures.
If chilled water flow is interrupted for even a few minutes the IT server room might overheat and critical computer services could go down. Another vital area is a hospital operating room. In a plant, essential machinery uses chilled water for process cooling. While many plants have excess capacity, much of this capacity is not available at high ambient temperature and high humidity conditions.
Air velocity is a key parameter in evaluating airflow system performance. As part of basic testing, adjusting and balancing of HVAC air distribution systems, most HVAC technicians now use an anemometer to measure air velocity at grilles-registers-diffusers, within a duct, or in open spaces.
In a chiller plant, meeting critical cooling requirements with the Fluke 830 Laser Shaft Alignment Tool: cooling towers, pumps, piping, shaft alignment.
Testing and comparing air quality in two homes for ventilation system effectiveness, using a Fluke 985 Particle Counter: particulates, formaldehyde, other VOCs
This how-to guide explains why and how to conduct a duct traverse, how to insert the measuring device and a step-by-step process of taking the measurements. Tips and additional resources are included.
With the push to energy independence and renewable energy sources, HVAC technicians need to know how to troubleshoot photovoltaic systems
If you're still using these solenoid testers, it's time to trade up to an solid-state electrical tester.
