Generation Z: vision and hopes (vs. the establishment’s)

Any parent knows that kids want to get what they wish for now, and in the form and shape they like, and without wasting energy and time to get it and enjoy it , and, and, … This is typical of youth, when parents begin to slowly ‘unleash’ their kids, and they feel that the much-awaited freedom of realising their dreams, or at least of trying to, is within arms’ reach, aiming to live...

Italy and Argentina united for more sustainable commercial refrigeration

I knew that this business trip would be different from the others. Going more than 11,000 km away together with representatives of Italian refrigeration companies to explain what is currently happening in Europe definitively seemed promising. “We have 10 refrigeration experts who are like Messi at football”, was how Prof. Cavallini introduced us in Messi’s home capital city. This was very...

Let’s talk about IoT: are all smart appliances really smart?

Smartphones, smart watches, smart bands, smart homes, smart grids, smart heat pumps: I’ve probably left a few out. Including, and I’ve never understood why, poor old tablets, notebooks, ultrabooks, and even the now-defunct netbooks, among the few devices that have rarely been lucky enough to be called smart .  Therefore, as the inconsistency of what we often read and see defined on...

Heat pumps: what are the next key dates in the EU?

Keeping a comfortable temperature throughout the year has become a must. Not so long ago, people used to just have a stove to heat the house in winter, with temperature control based on their own perception and opening windows when feeling the temperature was too high. Moreover, heating and cooling have been traditionally considered as separate concepts, different fields of study… or even...

Relative humidity and printability

The printing industry features a multitude of different technologies that can be used, from traditional printing (such as offset printing, rotogravure printing, screen printing, etc.) to digital printing (for example, inkjet or laser).  The processes underlying these technologies are quite different, but they all share one need: to control humidity in the processing and storage...

DCW Singapore: opportunities for Data Centre energy savings in tropical regions

Carel’s recent participation at “ Data Center World ” (DCW) Asia in Singapore was a great opportunity to meet some of the industry’s leading players in the southeast Asian area, addressing issues relating to data centre cooling in this region specifically and throughout Asia in general. This part of the world is experiencing strong economic growth, and with this comes a considerable...

Looking for alternative refrigerants to R-410A @ Heat Pump Summit in Nuremberg

Late 2017. “What is the replacement refrigerant for R-410A” is the question that perhaps more than any other is being asked in the HVAC industry. This is a consequence of other factors, such as: how much will R410A cost in the next semester ? Will it continue to be so difficult to source as has been the case for the last few months? Personally, I tried to find a response by participating...

ATMOsphere Ibérica: how to cool when it’s really hot?

With an outdoor temperature of 26°C on 24 October, it could be said that the weather in Madrid was in line with the main focus of the first ATMOsphere Ibérica event: the challenges of natural refrigerants in warm climates. “Climatic conditions in Spain, Portugal and Latin American make the transition to natural refrigerants, in particular CO 2 , more difficult”, stated Alvaro de Oña, the...

How can I choose the right humidification system for a paint booth?

This is the third and final discussion on paint booth applications. If you haven’t read the previous ones yet, please don’t forget to check them out! Today I’m going to talk about the best humidification solution for this specific application.  First of all, there is no one overall best solution, rather it depends on the requirements of each individual installation. A good...

Why does humidity need to be controlled in the printing industry?

Paper is a hygroscopic material that tends to reach a condition of equilibrium with the temperature-humidity conditions of the surrounding environment. Any swings in temperature and humidity can cause dimensional variations and loss of paper flatness . These phenomena are well-known to those who work in the printing industry as, if not appropriately controlled, they can...
