Condensing gas-fired steam humidifier

Condair’s GS condensing gas-fired steam humidifier recovers heat from exhaust gases to preheat the incoming water supply (pictured) to improve energy efficiency. The lower flue-gas temperature also allows plastic, rather than stainless-steel, flues to be used — reducing installation costs. Outputs range from 23 to 272 kg/h. Recovering heat from the flue gases to preheat incoming cold water improves humidity control compared to non-condensing gas humidifiers as the steam output remains more consistent. Compared with electric steam humidifiers, a condensing gas-fired unit has around 60% lower energy costs and will pay for itself within a year or two. The touchscreen controller shows all operating parameters. BMS connectivity is included as standard via Modbus, BACnetIP and BACnet MSTP (slave).

Grenfell is the building industry's Piper Alpha says CIBSE

The recent passage of the Building Safety Act is a welcome recognition of the fact that making safe buildings is a highly skilled operation says the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, endorsing the need for more effective regulation and a profound change in culture.

Underlying project-starts uptick indicates gradual recovery, Glenigan data suggests

  • 13% rise in detailed planning approvals against the preceding three months
  • 18% decline in main contract awards against the previous year
  • 9% increase in underlying starts during the three months to May

Glenigan has released the June 2022 edition of its Construction Review.
