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.

The air conditioning market has been growing at a rapid pace for some years now. A major sector of the market is dominated by direct evaporation systems, such as split air conditioning units or VRV/VRF systems.

It will mean important requirements for ventilation systems from 1 January 2016 that will be further extended from 2018.

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.

Induction units vs. fan coils

Due to the low noise emission, both systems are frequently chosen solutions for decentralised hotel air conditioning, but they both reveal in themselves advantages and disadvantages. 

Beyond expectations

Beyond expectations: the luxury residence BEYOND by Geisel raises the bar. It is the most exclusive residence in Munich – and possibly even the most unusual.

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.

Ceiling cassettes are a classic for air conditioning office buildings, hotels, exhibition and sales rooms. And Kampmann’s KaCool D has counted among the leading products in this category for a long time now.

Bright prospects – the new Belvedere neighbourhood is being developed in the capital city of Austria.
Would you have known? Austria is the heaviest country in Europe. How is that measured? Put in simple terms, the Earth’s crust is “weighed”.

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.

Kampmann incognito in the entrance areas of urban rooms. Millions of people have this feeling and this reflex. The feeling: a draught, for just a moment. The reflex: wipe your feet.

The objective measurement of thermal comfort

Many factors have an impact on whether we feel comfortable in a room. Dr Thorsten Wolterink, head of the FEC at Kampmann knows how to achieve that.

One hundred and sixty millimetres

Slim, stunning, strong – the KaDeck raises the bar when it comes to ceiling air conditioning 160 millimetres. That is the construction height of the KaDeck, of the still new ceiling unit by Kampmann.

Planning catastrophes such as with the BER Airport can be prevented in the future. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is currently revolutionising planning processes in the construction trade.

Climate change – on earth and in the supermarket

Climate change – on earth and in the supermarket

Since 1st January, new statutory minimum requirements of the energy efficiency of air conditioning units have been in place. It goes without saying that trade chains are also affected – in new buildings and conversions, they have to adapt their ventilation-technical concept.

Every year, new pavilions by famous architects are exhibited at the Serpentine Gallery in London. Let’s zoom in: from the edge of outer space, we are looking down at Europe – to be more precise: at the British Isles.

Air conditioning hotel rooms properly

The climate in hotel rooms is an ever-occurring reason for complaints by guests – an unavoidable situation. Hotel operators invest a lot of money to provide guests with a comfortable stay.

We air condition rooms – but who is air conditioning the world?

We air condition rooms – but who is air conditioning the world?

The global climate is changing – energy efficiency is an important factor in reducing CO2 emissions. Exactly my kind of climate. That is the corporate claim of Kampmann. It relates to the personal comfort climate that we create with the help of our products in any kind of room.

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.
