Hall heating with unit heaters and heat pumps

Hall heating with unit heaters and heat pumps

The German Buildings Energy Act is changing the regulations governing the air conditioning of large spaces – whether industrial sheds, warehouses or commercial halls. Heating systems based on heat pumps are now the norm in new halls, sheds and warehouses. They are also the product of choice in refurbishment work. A combination of unit heaters and heat pumps provides for efficient monovalent and bivalent heat supply.

Door air curtains: save money quickly with a comfortable indoor climate

Door air curtains: save money quickly with a comfortable indoor climate

Who’s not experienced the flow of warm air coming from above open doors or doorways? Door air curtains are being used there. It is inevitable that doorways are frequently opened and closed, or even remain open for longer, particularly in the industrial sector. Door air curtains are the units of choice in these cases to efficiently protect doorways during the winter months from the ingress of cold air, and retain the valuable heat indoors.

New refrigerant regulation to limit climate change

New refrigerant regulation to limit climate change

Regulation (EU) No. 517/2014 on fluorinated greenhouse gases has been in place since 01 January 2015 and repeals Regulation (EU) No. 842/2006 on certain fluorinated greenhouse gases.

Heaters for heat pumps: a comparison

Heaters for heat pumps: a comparison

It’s a double dilemma that really doesn’t need to be one: homeowners feel overwhelmed when faced with the decision about the best future-proof heating system. And tradespeople lack the political planning security to be able to provide their customers with the best advice. 

Sustainable hotel climate with heat pumps

Sustainable hotel climate with heat pumps

The building sector is to reduce its emissions by 6 % annually. 3 % was saved in 2021, 5.3 % was saved in 2022 (six million tonnes of CO2 on now 112 million tonnes of CO2). As of 2024, a newly installed plant will generally be operated with at least 65% renewable energy.

The carbon footprint of our products

The carbon footprint of our products

As a key industry for the energy transition and thus with massive responsibility towards future generations, building services possess a major lever for the sustainable development of the building sector. Taking this into account, building services design experts wish to use products that conserve resources and save CO2.

Gas-free: heat pumps for existing and new industrial sheds

Gas-free: heat pumps for existing and new industrial sheds

Save costs at the same time lower CO2 emissions compared to gas-fired systems by combining unit heaters with heat pumps to heat large spaces, industrial sheds and retail spaces.

Air flow laboratory: Realistically simulating designs

Air flow laboratory: Realistically simulating designs

Standard-compliant measurements according to DIN EN 442 and DIN EN 16430 are performed in the Kampmann Research & Development Centre (FEC) air flow laboratory. The measurements include regular standard-compliant measurements as well as the set-up of project-based (room) situations to meet customer-specific requirements.

Reliable output data at every design point

Reliable output data at every design point

The performance measurements of trench convectors are regulated with standard system temperatures in the standard EN 16430. The measurements need to be taken under real-life conditions and are intended to permit comparisons between different manufacturers at the design stage.

Industrial heating simulation: low water temperature with heat pumps

Industrial heating simulation: low water temperature with heat pumps

How should you heat a hall or shed properly? What aspects need to be taken into account to provide low water temperature-based air conditioning with heat pumps, at the same time avoiding the risk of draughts? We clarify these and other questions using a calculation example and simulations.

The right unit heater for every space

The right unit heater for every space

Kampmann is the only manufacturer on the market to offer unit heaters with outputs ranging from 6.5 to 89 kW, thereby guaranteeing the right unit for every space. You can rely on that!

Comfort – a perceived or measurable goal?

Comfort – a perceived or measurable goal?

“I feel comfortable in this room.” You simply couldn't give building services designers a bigger compliment. But a whole raft of factors need to be taken into account to ensure (thermal) comfort.

Cooling is finally easy with cold water

Cooling is finally easy with cold water

The installation of chillers/heat pumps is considerably simplified by the use of the hydraulic box. Heating engineers can save themselves valuable design and installation time and the range of cooling solutions they can offer is finally extended with additional attractive products.

Questions about the air conditioning of buildings and the coronavirus

We have summarised answers to the most pressing questions relating to air conditioning and ventilation.

Using water as a cooling medium

Using water as a cooling medium

Air conditioning systems available on the market can essentially be divided into two groups DX or direct evaporation systems and Chilled water systems.

A cosy atmosphere at 34 degrees – controlling large amounts of air cleverly. Euskirchen. A town with as many as 57,000 inhabitants. But without wanting to offend the town – if you don’t actually come from the Rhineland area, you do have to take a look to see where Euskirchen actually is.

Digitalisation of the air

Digitalisation of the air

Control and automation engineering is becoming increasingly important in the era of digitalisation. Kampmann keep pace with the times. Air moves. Or it doesn’t. And electricity? 1 = the current is flowing. 0 = the current is not flowing.

A small word with a big meaning: NANO!

The classic Katherm QK is now supplemented by Katherm QK nano. The incentive for nano came from London: here, as in many export markets, the floor construction height varies between 400 millimetres in commercial buildings and merely 100 millimetres in residential buildings.

New standards for trench systems

New standards for trench systems

Valid as of March 2015: EN 16430 governs the measurement of performance on fan-supported trench heating systems and thus establishes at long last a comparability of these units. Even the cooling capacity can be measured.
