CMYK / .ai CMYK / .ai CMYK / .ai acrjournal.uk 07 NEWS CIAT adds UV-C to AHUs A powerful ultra-violet C (UV-C) light disinfection system that targets viruses and bacteria is now available as an integrated option on CIAT’s air handling units (AHUs). UV-C lamps installed at strategic points within the AHU enclosure flood key areas in high energy, cleansing UV-C light. CIAT says the lamps are highly energy efficient, quiet and lightweight, and their physical presence inside the unit has only a minimal effect on air pressure and AHU performance. Three different configurations for UV-C lights are available. In critical applications, such as healthcare and food production, UV-C can be used in combination with a HEPA filtration system to remove deactivated particles and other microscopic contaminants from the airstream. UV-C is available as an option on Climaciat AIRTECH, Climaciat AIRCLEAN and Climaciat AIRACCESS, plus its AIRTECH and AIRCLEAN ranges. CLIMALIFE OFFERS REFRIGERANT TRAINING TO STUDENTS Refrigerant supplier Climalife is offering to run a series of free training sessions via a speaker programme across schools and training centres in the UK. In collaboration with Eastleigh College students and chief assessor (RACHP), Shaun Creech, Climalife undertook research in May this year looking into how companies within the industry can best support the students and their future careers. UK marketing manager Mel Summers said: “The amount of feedback was incredible, and Climalife will share some of this insight at a later date. One of the overwhelming trends across all the feedback was how much the students appreciate guest speakers coming into the college to share their knowledge and expertise and how this can complement the content of their study syllabus.” In response to this, and in celebration of World Refrigeration Day and the cooling champions of the future, Climalife is offering to run refrigerant training via a series of speaker programmes across colleges and training centres in the UK. Sessions will be scheduled at a time convenient to both Climalife team member(s) and the college / training centre timetables until the end of 2021. Colleges or training centres that believe they could benefit from one of the free sessions should email firstname.lastname@example.org . CRS invests in VLT fleet Temperature control specialist Carrier Rental Systems has invested in a fleet of very low temperature (VLT) cooling equipment for use in the chemical, power generation, pharmaceuticals, and food production and distribution industries. The VLT fleet includes chillers, dry coolers and low temperature air handling units able to provide cooling down to minus 45°C, using a high performance refrigeration system based on R449A refrigerant linked to a secondary glycol circuit. The refrigerant’s GWP of 1282 is 67 per cent lower than that of outgoing high GWP refrigerants R404A and R507, and is up to 12 per cent more energy efficient. The chillers are paired with high-efficiency, inverter-driven VLT pumps with high-performance bearings and seals to handle low temperature fluids. Units are built in a crash-frame for safe shipping on a pallet. “With our project management and logistics expertise, the new VLT fleet provides a turnkey service for food distribution centres, where a suite of interlocking services are required to maintain continuity of cooling to protect high-value stock, irrespective of swings in ambient conditions,” said Marc White, director and general manager, Carrier Rental Systems UK.
