Reducing Fan Energy Consumption Within Fan Coil Units

In modern buildings heating and ventilating is delicate balance between maximum energy efficiencies and occupancy comfort, when buildings are in the concept design stage a crucial tool to make offers attractive is to offer low energy consumption using fan coil units to keep running costs to a minimum and ensure a low environmental impact. In the past this was used only as a tool to win contracts but is now law in that types of buildings must adhere to specific efficiency guidelines to remain legal. To keep energy consumption to a minimum ...


Inland Revenue Pay Attention To AC Fans…

Back in 1994, when Axair was in its early start up days, began the transformation of a brownfield site for use by The Inland Revenue to create office accommodation space for 1,800 staff. The development consisted of seven separate buildings, in the form of courtyards and L-shaped blocks which overlooked Nottingham Castle The office buildings were extensively pre-fabricated and what is now known as The Inland Revenue Centre, was a pioneering sustainable project in the UK. At night the inherent thermal mass of the concrete is exploited and pu...


Fan Coil Monitor is Real Cause for Alarm

Tackling The Undetected Failure of Fan Coil Units in H&V The undetected failure of fan coil units is a long standing problem in heating and ventilation. Coil units, like the types found in Heating &Ventilating (HVAC) applications tend to be unmonitored and system failures can often go unnoticed to the point where a refit or refurbishment is required or where air simply ceases to flow from the ductwork. Axair Fans can offer a solution to this problem that will help to keep fan systems running at maximum efficiency, for longer. Most ...


Learning the EC Way – Specialist Training Workshops from Axair & Rosenberg

Together with our German supply partners, Rosenberg, we recently held a number of training workshops to provide a comprehensive guide to energy saving and electronically commutated fans. Held in the picturesque and peaceful surroundings of The Upper House Hotel in Barlaston, Staffordshire, we were joined by Christan Dorsch, Product Manager - EC Technology at Rosenberg and his colleague Manuel Kircher, Development Engineer - EC Technology.  Between them, Christian and Manuel possess almost 20 years’ experience in air movement and both have...

Control Offshore Fan Systems with Remote Regulation

Remote computer connection has become common place in industrial environments, changing the way that processes and procedures are undertaken and generally enhancing the capabilities of the industrial sector. Power Generation has been a great user of these remote computer connections. On-site operatives are fast becoming a thing of the past for many power generation centres as they look to monitor operations and equipment from a central location. This can prove particularly useful when the locality of a power centre is hard to reach. Industrial...

Controlling Your System Is a Breeze with Rosenberg EC Condenser Fans

Reduced noise, reduced energy consumption and extended lifetime; just a few of the many benefits of running condenser fan systems at reduced speeds. Managing and controlling this variable speed can require a significant investment though, either through the installation of a separate regulator or by purchasing an expensive advanced system with an in-built control. With a Rosenberg condenser fan from Axair, you are not required to do either. Not only do Rosenberg EC condenser fans use a low power connection, they are fitted with an enable swi...
