<strong>Background</strong><br> In central air handling units cooling and dehumidifying of the air usually takes place using chilled water cooling coils with one of the two kinds of circuits: temperature controlled or mass flow controlled chilled water supply circuits.<br><br> <strong>Technology</strong><br> The invention combines both types, the temperature controlled and mass flow controlled chilled water supply in one water circuit arrangement. Thus combining the advantages of the temperature controlled circuit with those of the mass flow controlled chilled water supply circuit, without the disadvantages immanent in the two circuit systems.<br><br> A simple but very effective valve arrangement, combined with a variable speed pump (see Figure) allows simultaneous control of the mass flow and the water supply temperature. The supply water temperature determines the slope of the change of condition and the mass flow controls the cooling power applied to the air. This allows cooling the air with or without dehumidification as well as dehumidifying the air with a minimum amount of cooling, resulting in substantial energy savings.<br><br> <b>Benefits</b><br> <ul> <li>combines advantages of the temperature controlled chilled water supply, with the advantages of the mass flow controlled chilled water supply, but leaves the disadvantages out</li> <li>allows for cooling without dehumidification</li> <li>allows for dehumidification wit a minimum amount of cooling</li> <li>simple but very effective arrangement</li> <li>easy to install</li> <li>energy saving, thus lowering the cost of air conditioning</li> </ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> German Patent DE 102009007591 <br> European Patent Application EP2394101A1<br> US Patent Application US2012048954A1 </p> <p><strong>Origin</strong><br> Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin</p>

A unique solar panel design made with a new ceramic material points the way to potentially providing sustainable power cheaper, more efficiently, and requiring less manufacturing time.
It also reaches a four-decade-old goal of discovering a bulk photovoltaic material that can harness energy from visible and infrared light, not just ultraviolet light.
Scaling up this new design from its tablet-size prototype to a full-size solar panel would be a large step toward making solar power affordable compared with ...
Atlantische Flohkrebse pflanzen sich jetzt auch in arktischen Gewässern fort
Biologen des Alfred-Wegener-Institutes, Helmholtz-Zentrum für Polar- und Meeresforschung (AWI), haben zum ersten Mal nachgewiesen, dass sich in den arktischen Gewässern westlich Spitzbergens auch Flohkrebse aus dem wärmeren Atlantik fortpflanzen.
Diese überraschende Entdeckung deute auf einen möglichen Wandel der arktischen Zooplankton-Gemeinschaft hin, berichten die Wissenschaftler und Wissenschaftlerinnen in der Fachzeitschrift Marine Ecology ...
The molecular architecture of three key proteins and their complexes reveals how plants fine-tune their immune response to pathogens
Plants rarely get sick in their natural environment. When the threat of infection arises, a quick decision is made about the necessary countermeasures. The course is set by a protein which forms complexes with its partner proteins for this purpose.

Researchers studying speciation of butterfly orchids on the Azores have been startled to discover that the answer to a long-debated question "Do the islands support one species or two species?" is actually "three species".
Hochstetter's Butterfly-orchid, newly recognized following application of a battery of scientific techniques and reveling in a complex taxonomic history worthy of Sherlock Holmes, is arguably Europe's rarest orchid species. Under threat in its mountain-top retreat, the orchid urgently requires conservation recognition.
A lavishly illustrated publication, titled "Systematic revision of Platanthera in ...
Researchers from Brown University and the University of Hawaii have found some mineralogical surprises in the Moon's largest impact crater.
Data from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper that flew aboard India's Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter shows a diverse mineralogy in the subsurface of the giant South Pole Aitken basin.
The differing mineral signatures could be reflective of the minerals dredged up at the time of the giant impact 4 billion years ago, ...
