We have represented Konvekta for nearly eight years now. In that time, we have designed and delivered over 34 separate projects. We have supplied Konvekta equipment to a very impressive User Group including key owners like UMass Medical, Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard, Dartmouth, Yale, Novartis and Millipore.
In those eight years, there have been some key reasons why owners ask for, and mechanical engineers specify, Konvekta.
Energy Savings – Konvekta systems achieve 75 to 90% effectiveness.
Flexibility – Konvekta systems provide more design flexibility than any other energy recovery device.
Safety – Konvekta systems are the safest possible option in any critical exhaust environments.

AGronomic IQ’s best selling unit, the Evolution Series is the ultimate solution for grow rooms.
Designed from the ground up, AGronomic IQ’s Evolution Series provides a highly effective and efficient environment control solution for most grow rooms.
It also comes in a wide range of sizes and options to provide the most space efficient, energy efficient and cost-effective solution possible while delivering the most stable and scalable performance in the industry. There is simply no other system on the market that provides more capacity, value or performance in a smaller footprint!
Redundant, Scalable Performance
The Evolution Series is engineered as two complete systems in one. It’s designed to provide two-stage efficiency with dual circuit reliability and redundancy. When dehumidification loads are low, only one system operates using half the energy. When loads increase, the second circuit kicks in and only runs when necessary, providing not just ideal performance and energy consumption, but also built-in redundancy should anything happen to one of the compressors or fans.
No Refrigerant Risk
Even better, the Agronomic IQ Series is designed to operate using proprietary fluid coolers and glycol as a heat exchange media, which virtually eliminates the high risk of a refrigerant leak killing plants.
45 to 170 lbs/hr moisture removal capacity
3,000 to 16,000 CFM of air handling
Dual-circuit, scalable performance to suit every stage of growth with ultra-conservative energy consumption
Fully modular system – 2 compressors, 2 supply air fans, 2 cabinets, one package
The security and reliability of dual, parallel, staged compressors
Provides precise control of the variable humidity requirements for each growing phase
Patent-pending design incorporates “Economizer Cooling” to save tens of thousands in electricity costs annually
EC blower motor technology for lowest operating costs and sound levels on both the fluid cooler and main AHU
Highest quality and efficiency, for dehumidification and cooling performance with fully modulating reheat coil for optimum room temperature control
Wide range of auxiliary heating options available
Combines compact footprints and premium quality components into 3 physical model sizes from 8 to 45 tons
Utilizes proprietary fluid coolers in a sealed system with exceptionally low refrigerant charge, no field refrigeration work and minimal risk of refrigerant leak
Includes no cost, 24/7 real-time Internet monitoring via proprietary GrowSentryTMTechnology to ensure peak performance plus remote system access and control for ultimate peace-of-mind and the lowest service costs in the industry
Service vestibule outside of the air stream for ease of service and quiet operation
Delivers a competitive first cost, followed by extremely low total cost of ownership and an exceptionally long service life

This project replaces the Biolabs’ aged HVAC infrastructure with new energy-efficient systems capable of meeting the needs of a modern biological lab for years to come. The major mechanical spaces of the building were consolidated into a centralized mechanical room on the 5th floor, and new air intake, exhaust fans, and horizontal duct distribution were installed at the roof level. The replacement of existing systems were phased over a two year period to minimize disruption to research activities throughout the building. A high performance pumped glycol system was deployed that included a snow melt coil in the OA plenum.

Snow melt coils
MK Plastics Laboratory dilution fans
The pumped glycol system as the Basis of Design was provided by Konvekta. The air handlers include a reheat coil by Konvekta supplied with a 3-way control valve to reheat the air and provide humidity control. Liquid temperature probes and liquid control valves were included in the Konvekta system.
While the system design is over 90% effective in Winter Recovery, the hydronic module also included a pair of tube and shell HW heat exchangers which allowed the Konvekta glycol ER loop to meet all the heating needs of the building.
MIT researchers develop inexpensive way to perform full lifecycle analysis of design choices as buildings are being planned
Typically, when architects or engineers design a new building, it’s only at the end of the process — if ever — that a lifecycle analysis of the building’s environmental impact is carried out. And by then, it may be too late to make significant changes. Now, a faster and easier system for doing such analyses could change all that, making the analysis an integral part of the design process from the beginning.
The new process is simple enough that it could be integrated into the software already used by building designers so that it becomes a seamless addition to their design process. Read complete MIT article here.

Are you thinking about designing a dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS)?
Make sure you have comprehensive guidance from industry experts to simplify and optimize DOAS design, installation, operation, and management. The ASHRAE Design Guide for Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems consolidates existing material to focus on the major issues while referring to supplemental sources for more specialized or in-depth information.
A DOAS uses separate equipment to condition all of the outdoor air brought into a building for ventilation and delivers it to each occupied space, either directly or in conjunction with local or central HVAC units serving those same spaces.
A DOAS system:
improves humidity control
reduces energy use
simplifies ventilation design and control
uses heating and cooling equipment that doesn’t provide ventilation and/or dehumidification (e.g., radiant panels or passive chilled beams)
Comprehensive guidance from industry experts can simplify DOAS design, installation, operation, and management
DOAS is growing in popularity but is still a relatively new technology. The lack of DOAS exposure and experience means many systems designed and installed today don’t take full advantage of all the benefits DOAS can offer. The ASHRAE Design Guide for Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems consolidates existing material to focus on the major issues while referring to supplemental sources for more specialized or in-depth information.
Guided by the information in this book, HVAC system designers will be able to optimally incorporate DOAS into their projects. Architectural designers, building developers and owners, maintenance professionals, students, teachers, and researchers may also find the contents useful.
Oil as a lubricant in a chiller makes for a significantly more complicated machine. There is a complete system that is designed and maintained to allow oil to lubricate a chiller.
Check out this video which explains how the oil needs to supplied and maintained in a typical chiller.
Wow, that’s a pretty complicated system that creates significantly more maintenance requirements and possibilities of chiller failure.
Get Rid of Oil, Get Rid of Problems
Magnetic bearing, oil-free centrifugal compressors avoid significant maintenance and fail points.
Oil-free centrifugal compressor technology boosts energy efficiency, cuts operating costs and is now well-proven worldwide.
Smardt oil-free centrifugal compressors use magnetic bearings and variable-speed drive to deliver a quantum leap in IPLV efficiencies compared with conventional oil-lubricated centrifugal, reciprocating, scroll and screw compressors.
The totally oil-free Turbocor technology achieves the highest part-load efficiencies for chillers and chilled water systems (including water-, air- and evaporatively-cooled applications).
Proprietary magnetic bearings replace conventional oil-lubricated bearings, eliminating high friction losses, mechanical wear and high-maintenance oil management systems to deliver chiller energy savings of 35 percent and more over conventional chillers while ensuring long-term reliability.
