Condensing Gas-fired Humidifier

Condensing Gas-fired Humidifier from DriSteem Perfect Fit for Continuing Care, nursing and Assisted Living healthcare Environments

DRI-STEEM Corporation (DriSteem) recently introduced the GTS® humidifier LX Series, the only gas-fired condensing humidifier that combines high-efficiency with ultra-low nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions in a single unit. No other humidifier on the market offers both of these important features together.
Humidification is a critical component of the HVAC system for continuing care and assisted living applications. Elderly residents in these facilities are especially vulnerable to health and wellness issues caused by overly dry air such as respiratory problems, skin irritations, dry nasal passages, dry eyes, and sore throats. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 to 3 million serious infections occur every year in nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and healthcare facilities.
The LX Series humidifier offers protection against the issues that fluctuating and low relative humidity levels cause. Studies have shown that keeping relative humidity levels within a range of 40 to 60% is necessary to maintain a healthy indoor environment. There’s evidence of a link between overly dry air and increased cold or flu transmission between people because dry air allows infectious particles, such as bacteria and viruses, to survive longer in the air and on surfaces. In addition, the natural defense system of our bodies become less effective in dry air, meaning that we are unable to fight off infection very effectively.

Condensing Gas-fired Humidifier

The patent-pending technologies of the LX Series humidifier combines the benefits of humidification for residents with critical factors for facility managers such as energy efficiency, environmental protection, water conservation, and control:
• Steam capacities from 34 to 272 Kg/h: The LX Series humidifier works for small to large installations and has the flexibility to tackle almost any application.
• Condensing design provides for highest efficiency and PVC venting: Saves money on energy costs with greater than 90% efficiency.
• Ultra-low NOx for a clean environment and to meet increasingly stringent regulations: The LX Series humidifier has ultra-low nitrogen oxide emissions of under 20 ppm.
• Reduced installation costs: The LX series patent-pending condensing technology ensures that the flue temperature stays under 60°C, allowing for the use of PVC, CPVC, or polypropylene flue piping which is less expensive, easier to work with than stainless steel, and can be vented through sidewalls, saving on installation costs.
• Minimum 5:1 turndown ratio for accurate humidity control: Accurate humidity control through a wide range of load conditions, providing consistent output from low to maximum demand.
• Sensing technology that adjusts drain intervals automatically, in addition to accurately measuring water tank level: The LX Series humidifier includes patent-pending Smart Drain Technology, a universal water control that manages tank filling and draining for all water types. This technology automatically decreases the drain interval when highly conductive water (such as well water) is sensed to reduce scale buildup in the humidifier, for easier maintenance. Conversely, this technology reduces water usage by extending the drain interval with low conductive water, such as reverse osmosis or deionized.
• Space-saving design for ease of installation and placement flexibility: All LX Series humidifiers feature a small footprint for easy installation in crowded mechanical rooms, with a wall mounting option for the smaller models for even more placement flexibility. For installation outdoors, there is a climate-controlled weatherproof enclosure option available.
“Our GTS LX Series has been designed and built to support operational cost efficiency and manageable maintenance requirements for building owners and facilities personnel,” comments Andie Chessun, Director of Humidity Matters Ltd. “It is truly a next generation breakthrough in gas-fired humidifiers, providing even more energy savings, greater installation flexibility, and better environmental protection for healthcare, continuing care and assisted living applications.”

Indoor humidity regulations will reduce burden of COVID-19

As the UK sits in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, PBC Today speaks to Dr Stephanie Taylor, M.D., M. Arch, CIC, of Harvard Medical School, on how public buildings can become a key mechanism to fighting the virus by managing air quality
Given the World Health Organisation has now confirmed that COVID-19 survives under certain indoor air conditions, and its head scientist of disease has urged hospitals to better manage their air quality for staff when treating patients, there is a serious need for the public to understand the impact that air humidification levels can have on viruses.

Dr Taylor has been a physician for several decades with her primary practice in paediatric oncology and she now specialises in infection control. She says: “Working as a physician, I became very concerned about the impact on buildings on patient outcomes after observing the rates of new infections among young patients, despite our best medical treatment.

“This concern motivated me to learn about buildings, so I returned to school to get a master’s degree in architecture and engineering from Norwich University, Vermont. Today I am passionate about the power of the indoor environment to improve human health.”

Humidifying to Improve Ice Quality

Edmonton Oilers improve home ice by humidifying their arena
RESULTS • Improved ice quality from “three out of ten,” according to a 2016 Oilers player, to second-best in the league according to a 2018 vote by players on all NHL teams. • Improved thermal comfort. Orange & Blue Ice Crew remarked that they felt warmer after air moisture—not temperature—was increased in the arena.
THE JOB The Edmonton Oilers moved to a new downtown arena for the 2016-17 hockey season amid high expectations. Their soon-to-be captain was healthy again after missing 37 games from injury, average ticket sales were sellouts, and the team would be skating in front of even larger crowds on the high-quality ice that both home and visiting players had come to expect in Edmonton.
THE CHALLENGE Upgrades from the old arena to the more spacious Rogers Place made events easier to schedule, more attractive to the talent, and more enjoyable for hockey, music, and wrestling fans. Visitors are first treated to Ford Hall, a 24,000-squarefoot atrium with no wall between it and the arena. While beautiful, Ford Hall has a huge impact on the HVAC systems. In the words of Jason Rimmer, Rogers Place director of engineering and ice operations, “it was like having a hole in the side of our arena. We had to compensate in terms of air movement and temperatures.” When the first winter set in, a phenomenon called sublimation, or evaporation of the ice, began to take place. Winter air below zero °C that was pulled into the building through four air handlers and heated to 20 °C contained barely enough moisture to be measurable, causing indoor relative humidity (RH) as low as single digits. In fact, the ice was turning directly to gas without first becoming water. The result was rough, brittle ice that became even worse when skated on, causing the puck to bounce and skate blades to chatter. While it is not a mystery that the cause of ice sublimation is dry air, most arena ice crews do not encounter air as dry as Rimmer and his crew were seeing. Rimmer knew who to call.
