HVAC

To maintain a comfortable working environment, many buildings require cooling to extract the heat generated through solar gain, people and electrical loads such as IT and lighting. Demand varies throughout the year based on seasonal temperatures and at Star, we have developed cooling solutions that are optimised to deliver the highest possible efficiency all year round. Our solutions are proven to reduce energy costs associated with cooling by 40%.

We minimise the environmental impact of cooling through the use of refrigerants with low global warming potential. The excellent operating efficiency of these fluids not only reduces electricity costs, but also cuts carbon dioxide emissions back at the power station due to low consumption.

Year round peak efficiency is delivered through the combination of market leading technology and control software. Our selection of high quality component and manufacturing techniques ensure long term reliability and a build life of a minimum of 20 years. This gives us the confidence to offer our three point warranty on parts, refrigerant and performance.

The International Maritime Organisation building in Lambeth is headquarters to a world-renowned institution, and is the venue for many major global conferences. With the phase out of CFCs reaching its conclusion, it was necessary to replace the old R-11 chillers which provided cooling to the offices and conference suite. In making this change the efficiency of the new chillers was a key factor, because R-11 used as a refrigerant makes for an extremely efficient system. In addition, the air handling units on the building were configured to provide free cooling to the chilled water circuit in low ambient conditions. The chiller replacement project was also required to follow the Government’s policy of avoiding fluorocarbon refrigerants unless necessary. As stated in the DETR report Climate Change: The UK Programme: “HFCs should only be used where other safe, technically feasible, cost effective and more environmentally acceptable alternatives do not exist.”

Consequently, a system using ammonia as the refrigerant was specified. After careful analysis of the building and the surroundings, it was concluded that the most suitable solution was to place two chillers in an acoustic housing on the roof of the offices, close-coupled to two evaporative condensers.

To keep the ammonia charge to a minimum and to enable the chiller to fit within the reduced headroom space below the condensers, each unit is equipped with a low pressure receiver and plate heat exchanger. The advantages of using a low pressure receiver are:
