Institutional Building Operations Solutions
Institutional buildings can conserve energy by employing the right systems for water systems, heating and cooling, and environmental control. Whether it’s a school, prison, hospital, nursing home, or other institution, each building has its own challenges. Selecting the right system components and sizing them correctly can make all the difference in the efficiency of the entire building.
Carotek understands the unique challenges of large scale buildings, and can help optimize your current system, assist with repairing a building’s pressure boosting system, or provide steam audits to increase your energy savings.
Carotek works with leading companies to provide institutional solutions.
Institutional Steam, Air & Water Systems
- Armstrong International offers steam traps, condensate recovery equipment, strainers, pressure reducing valves, coils, hot water packages, steam separators, air vents, mixing valves, and hose stations. In addition, Armstrong’s flow measurement products offer the latest differential pressure flowmeter technology, and Armstrong’s Digital Flo Semi-Instantaneous water heaters are ideal for schools, prisons, hospitals, and nursing homes, where you need instant hot water on-demand.
Institution Heating & Cooling Pumps
- Grundfos offers a full range of pump solutions from heating and cooling to pressure boosting, as well as other applications. Grundfos pumping solutions boost performance and reduce energy consumption, enabling a more efficient system. For heating and cooling, Grundfos makes variable frequency converters to accurately control hydronic systems and allow the pump system to adapt continuously to system demands.
Institutional Building Pressure Solutions
- Amtrol supplies surge suppressors, wet pipe sprinkler system expansion tanks, thermal and hydronic expansion tanks, well tanks, air separators, air vents, air purgers, water heaters, and buffer tanks for industrial applications. Amtrol invented the thermal expansion tank to help control pressure in closed, potable, hot water systems. This eliminates pressure relief valve discharge, saves energy and helps protect expensive hot water heaters. Amtrol also offers indirect-fired water heater models with large heat exchangers and storage capacities.
- Armstrong VERIS offers differential pressure flowmeter technology to accurately measure the flow of liquid, gas, or steam. VERIS is the industry leader in engineering and manufacturing special designs, extra-large pipes and ducts, underground installations, prefabricated spool sections, and partial inserts to sense half of velocity profile for hot taps. Veris products are used in nursing homes, prisons, hospitals, and schools to provide accurate and reliable flow measurements, and are designed to perform maintenance-free in real-world industrial applications.
