NEW VENTILATION SYSTEM ENHANCES STUDENTS’ EXPERIENCE
A new cooling and ventilation system has been installed at a world-class London university
– thanks to Waterloo.
The major project to address climate control in the Central Library at Imperial College
London started in 2017. Air distribution products were supplied by expert manufacturers,
Waterloo Air Product, as part of the four-floor refurbishment.
Due to the number of people in the library and the need for an energy efficient scheme,
Jacobs was appointed as designers on behalf of Imperial College London.
In Waterloo’s factory in Kent, in-house specialists demonstrated in the test lab how the
active chilled beam, designed to cool large buildings, would work on site.
To cope with fluctuating levels of occupancy, Waterloo recommended a VAV system.
Variable air volume boxes feed the active air side of the beams so that the air can vary to
suit the load requirements and the occupancy levels.
To create a feature of the installation, the active beam plenum boxes and interconnecting
ductwork were supplied in matt black. And because the units were being installed in a
working library, a very low noise level of NR30 had to be achieved.

RIELLO LAUNCHES INSTALLER VIDEO FOR RDB BX LOW NOX BURNERS
Riello has introduced a video guide for
installers, covering all aspects of the
recently launched RDB BX ErP-compliant
low NOx oil burners. The video is divided
into sections providing step-by-step
instructions for installation, commissioning,
maintenance and fault-finding. For ease of
use, it follows the format of the manual, so
that each step described in the manual is
also demonstrated on the video.
RDB BX burners feature improved
combustion technology to ensure that
NOx levels comply with the latest ErP
regulations. Whilst retaining the same first
line spares as earlier models to simplify
installers’ stock control there are some
differences, which are clearly demonstrated
in the video. For example, combustion head
adjustment may be necessary for certain
flue configurations and C02 levels need to
be checked during commissioning.
