IntelliCon - CHW

boiler blueThe IntelliCon has been tested by leading energy companies and experts, including Keyspan, Con Ed Solutions, Brookhaven National Laboratory, ETL/Inchcape and others. IntelliCon is listed by Underwriters Laboratories as Energy Management Equipment.

IntelliCon®-CHW is a microprocessor-controlled fuel-saving device for commercial hot-water heating systems. IntelliCon-CHW reduces: fuel consumption, wear on parts, flue emissions, and electrical usage, when installed on any new or existing gas or oil burner.{mosimage}

A heating system must be able to provide acceptable comfort at the lowest anticipated outdoor temperature. In the U.S. and abroad, most commercial boilers have a heating capacity between 1.5 to 2 times larger than that needed to maintain the facility’s temperature on those extreme days. Due to this over- sizing of the boiler, the burner will cycle on and off continuously. Even on boilers with proportional controls, once the heating load goes below the burner’s low-fire point, the burner will cycle on and off to prevent overheating of the system water.

CHWIntelliCon®-CHW saves energy by adjusting the burner run pattern to match the system’s “heat load.” Its action is similar to the industry-accepted method of “outdoor-air temperature reset control,” but does not require an outdoor air temperature sensor or the need to profile the building in order to adjust the reset” controller properly. IntelliCon-CHW determines the “heat load” by using an easily installed strap-on temperature sensor that monitors the boiler’s out-flow water temperature and the rate that this temperature is changing. Using our patented technology, IntelliCon-CHW increases “system efficiency” thus the heating system uses less fuel to generate the same amount of heat. This is done by dynamically changing the aquastat’s effective dead-band based upon the measured “heating load.” This causes the average water temperature to be varied (depending upon the measured load), and is accomplished by extending the burner’s “off-time.” Extending the “off-time” also results in longer burns that are more efficient and a reduction in burner on/off cycling. Just as computer control has increased the gas mileage of automobiles: IntelliCon-CHW improves the fuel utilization of heating systems, by supplementing the antiquated on/off control action of the aquastat with the analysis and control capabilities of a computer.

Facility engineers will appreciate the illuminated LCD readout, which displays useful information relative to the unit’s status, system temperatures, and burner run-time, all of which are useful for system maintenance. IntelliCon-CHW typically reduces fuel consumption 10% to 20% and decreases burner cycling 30% or more.
