CIAT EXPERT IN INDOOR CLIMATE SYSTEMS
As a pioneer of customised HVAC solutions, CIAT understands the importance of increasing the well-being of individuals in their living areas and places of work. Aware of the thermal, energy and air quality issues faced today by every sector of activity, we have responded by developing global systems based on an adapted and efficient combination of products.
WATER-BASED GLOBAL ENERGY SYSTEMS FOR HEATING, COOLING AND INDOOR AIR QUALITY
To comply effectively with today’s thermal and environmental regulations, CIAT designs optimised water-loop energy systems comprised of comfort units, heat pumps and dual-flow air handling units. As a renewable resource and a highly effective heat transfer fluid, water not only represents an excellent alternative to direct expansion systems it also meets F-Gas regulations in terms of confinement and limitation of refrigerants within buildings.
BENEFITS OF THE WATER LOOP
+ More competitive: + + + + +
equipment that is more cost effective and requires less maintenance than direct expansion systems Greater comfort: flexible, precise control of comfort for the occupants Increased energy efficiency: homogenous and thermally stable, water reduces the energy requirements for heat transfer Environmentally sustainable: no refrigerant is required on the premises and only a small amount is used in the heat pump installed outside the building’s occupied areas Easy to install: no refrigerant specialists are required during installation Flexibility: a water-loop energy system adapts easily to the design of buildings and the changes that may be made to its layout over time
SMART CIATControl: THE ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Connected to all HVAC components (refrigeration, comfort units, air handling unit) and using a patented algorithm that can be programmed according to building occupancy and weather conditions, Smart CIATControl adapts the efficiency of the thermodynamic producer to the needs of the emitters in real time. In addition to automatic system changeover based on calculation requirements, features include: Optimal Stop & Start: predictive function which anticipates the stop and start times of the HVAC system. Optimal Water®: allows the temperature of the chiller or heat pump to be controlled according to the demand from the emitters. Night cooling: charges the building with fresh air during the night and delays the activation of the refrigeration request during the day. ® : patented process which ensures a particulate level for the building DYNAMIC S that is beneath the fixed WHO recommendation of 10μg/m3.
The optimisations offered by Smart CIATControl allow an average energy saving of 40% for the building
