The Royal League doesn’t mind age – USA, New York City/Bronx
Retrofitblue is the new service for immediate modernisation that ZIEHL-ABEGG is newly offering on the global market.
It’s the Royal League for effective saving and highest efficiency potential by adding new and modern components and product solutions even to old and existing facilities, permitting lower costs in particular when end customers don’t have a large budget for new purchases. With Retrofitblue, ZIEHL-ABEGG also has become a part of the association marketing campaign “Deutschland macht’s effizient” that was brought to life by the FGK Fachverband Gebäude Klima e. V. in Germany.
Retrofitblue in use
Retrofitblue is already in use in the USA as well – the best example of it is the relevant fan facility modernisation in the Jack D. Weiler hospital on the “Albert Einstein College of Medicine”-campus in New York City/Bronx. In this place, it is of the utmost importance that the installed fans are most efficient, while offering high performance and most of all working at a low noise level. The legacy exhaust system operated there, using a forward, curved fan and a belt, required constant maintenance due to the vibrations it reduced, and had the great disadvantage that those vibrations spread to the patient rooms below. This condition was no longer tolerable for the hospital – a case for Retrofitblue and the Royal League at ZIEHL-ABEGG. Since the vibrations couldn’t be removed even by replacing the motor, the persons responsible at the ZIEHL-ABEGG branch in Greensboro/USA decided to solve this task with a space-saving compact unit made up of three GR modules.
Since it is so very compact, the unit could be transported to its position on the 12th floor easily in the building’s lift and installed there. This saved a lot of money already. High cost efficiency, in addition to best energy efficiency, wasn’t only reflected in this one item, however. Since the ECblue motors by ZIEHL-ABEGG do not need any bearing or belt maintenance, this service-less system has no maintenance costs at all. High savings – in this case at approx. 7000$ per year – also result from the much lower power consumption due to the Retrofitblue modernisation and the resulting use of the new high-efficiency Cpro impeller product, combined with the customer-specific ECblue compact unit from ZIEHL-ABEGG. The new system is perfectly silent starting at a distance of only 3 m already. It’s a win-win-situation for the hospital operators of the Albert Einstein Weiler hospital and its patients, who can now recover undisturbed.
ZIEHL-ABEGG Retrofitblue enables you to feel the future anywhere in the world, in spite of existing legacy systems.
