Stocked up on Lennox Commercial HVAC Equipment

Heatcraft Australia is well stocked on its comprehensive Lennox Commercial HVAC Equipment range to offer a speedy upgrade or replacement project solution.

The range consists of Lennox US manufactured Rooftop Packaged Units, Lennox European manufactured Rooftop Packaged Units, as well as NEW Lennox European manufactured Water-Cooled Reverse-Cycle Packaged Units and Lennox European manufactured Air-Cooled Reverse-Cycle Scroll Chillers.

Two important features remain constant across the range – reliability and efficiency. “We source only premium, high-efficiency product from our global Lennox portfolio”, commented Heatcraft Segment Manager, Thanh Ngo.

“The range is well supported from pre-sales to sales fulfillment through to commissioning, with a wide range of parts available 24/7 through the Heatcraft wholesale network’s national footprint and its ‘24/7 Access to Parts’ program.”

The Neosys and Ecolean Air-Cooled Scroll Chillers are well established in the Australian market finding favour across food/industrial process applications and comfort cooling projects alike. The new Lennox Aqualean Water-Cooled Reverse-Cycle Packaged Units (pictured below) are gaining solid traction by virtue of its 7% higher energy efficiency and 35% reduced height profile when compared on average with the market leading comparative model.

When it comes to specification of the Lennox Packaged Rooftop range, Heatcraft has simplified the process with the Heatcraft smart@ccess HVAC Product Selector online program. Account customers can easily enter their required capacity and then view the possible units that meet their project needs. Alternatively, customers can enter an alternate brand unit and the smart@ccess program will return comparable Lennox equivalent models.

smart@ccess is one easy way to filter through all the options. Or customers can speak directly with their local Heatcraft Field Engineer or Account Manager on 13 23 50 to find the most optimum Lennox solution for their project. All units are project priced, with special pricing able to be negotiated on a job-by-job basis.”

Ozone Protection Legislation Amendment Bill 2017

Heatcraft Australia supports the Government’s introduction of amendments to the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act which outlines the phase down of HFC’s over the next two decades to achieve better environmental impact from refrigeration and air conditioning gases.

The Hon Josh Frydenberg MP, Minister for Environment and Energy introduced the Ozone Protection
and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Legislation Amendment Bill 2017 into Parliament on
30 March 2017.

The Media Release is copied below.

The Bill and Explanatory Memorandum can be found here. http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r5849

THE HON JOSH FRYDENBERG MP

Minister for the Environment and Energy

MEDIA RELEASE
30 March 2017

GOVERNMENT TAKES ACTION ON HFCs UNDER MONTREAL PROTOCOL

The Turnbull Government has introduced legislation as part of its global leadership in reducing hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) emissions.

The Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Amendment Bill 2017 will allow Australia to phase-down HFC imports starting in 2018 and reach an 85 per cent reduction by 2036.
HFCs, which are powerful synthetic greenhouse gases widely used in refrigerators, air conditioners, fire extinguishers and insulating foam, contribute up to two per cent of our national carbon equivalent emissions.

Last year in Kigali Rwanda the world’s nations met and agreed to start a global phase-down of these potent gases under the Montreal Protocol.

Australia co-chaired those important negotiations and has been a leader for many years in phasing down gases that are harmful to the atmosphere.

Globally the reduction in emissions are estimated to achieve up to 72 billion tonnes in carbon dioxide equivalent emission savings by 2050 or roughly one and a third times global annual emissions.

In addition to supporting a domestic HFC phase down from 1 January 2018, the Bill will streamline licensing, reporting and administration of existing legislation, significantly cutting red-tape.

The legislation will enable Australia to continue to contribute to global outcomes under the Montreal Protocol - one of the great international environmental success stories.

Thanks to global action under the Montreal Protocol the ozone layer is now expected to recover for most
of the planet by the middle of this century and by around 2070 over Antarctica.

The amendments will ensure Australia continues to play a lead role in managing HFCs and ozone
depleting substances.

NEW CPS Smart Tools

New to the Heatcraft range are AAB Smart Tools, brought to you by CPS. This advanced, quality range of Data Loggers, Anemometers, Airflow and Velocity Loggers are Accurate, Affordable and Easy to Use.

TempSmart TS-100 Temperature & Humidity Data Logger

Data Analysis – The TempSmart is a powerful data logger that includes measurements for:
• Dry Bulb Temperature
• Wet Bulb Temperature
• Feels Like Temperature
• Relative Humidity
• Dew Point

Big Memory – The TempSmart TS-100 comes with a 32,000 event memory. The user can choose any recording increments from taking 1 reading per second up to 1 reading every 24 hours.

Easy to Use – With incredible graphics and onscreen guidance, the TempSmart TS-100 is easy enough to use for the complete novice, yet powerful and accurate enough for HVAC experts.

Accurate – The TempSmart has temperature accuracy of 0.2oC. This is comparable to the accuracy of meters costing 4 times more than the TS-100.

Affordable – The TempSmart TS-100 has the best performance to cost ratio of any data logger on the market. The TS-100-6PK 6 pack provides even greater value.

ABM-100 & ABM-200 Airflow & Environmental Meters

The ABM-100 and ABM-200 Airflow & Environmental Meters eliminate “Margin of Error”.

  • There is no need for a calculator and notepad
  • No need to remember formulas
  • Built-in reminder to account for things like AK factor (free space of a grille)
  • They utilise an easy smartphone interface vs. 3-4 buttons
  • Automatically log all the data and transmit professional reports right from the app

When you want the convenience of the ABM-100, plus a whole lot more…upgrade to the ABM-200.
Known as “the Swiss Army Knife of Smartphone Tools”, It has all of the features of the ABM-100 plus gives a better feature vs cost value ratio than any other tool on the market.

The ABM-200 is one powerful meter that gives you:
• Dry Bulb Temperature
• Wet Bulb Temperature
• Feels Like Temperature
• Temperature Differential
• Relative Humidity
• Dew Point
• Barometric Pressure
• Airflow Velocity
• Airflow Volume
• Air Density
• Wind Speed
• Wind Direction
• Max Gusts

Increased Safety and Efficiency – With it's built-in Bluetooth Smart Radio, the ABM-200 can be fixed to the AAB 64” extension pole so you can safely spend less time on ladders.

SPM-100 Static Pressure Meter

Rugged & Durable - The SPM-100 has been one of AAB's best selling tools with proven reliability. It has received outstanding reviews for the combination of accuracy and durability.

Accurate – The SPM-100 is accurate to within 0.04” w.c. This is important, but what is more important is that the SPM-100 is unmatched in accuracy when it comes to onscreen guidance and making sure tests are taken correctly.

Affordable – In addition to it’s competitive price to performance ratio, the SPM-100 is designed to help contractors generate income from the reporting function. External static pressure tests should be documented on every tune-up and system commissioning. If the system static pressure is too high, the most efficient system in the world is worthless because it can’t move the air.

Easy to Use – The meter, the probes and the app are all color coded so that a person with no HVAC knowledge at all can take a Total External Static Pressure Test or several other tests.

The SPM-100 shows how to take tests for:
• Ambient Static Pressure
• Pressure Differential
• Total External Static Pressure
• Indoor vs Outdoor Static Pressure
• Weather Data
• Gas Pressure
• Detailed Emailed Reports
