Is AC Oil Fouling robbing your Hotel?

Is AC Oil Fouling robbing your Hotel?

When a person complains of chest pain and goes to a doctor, the doctor first advises various tests to be conducted.  The diagnosis throw reasons, among which cholesterol accumulation, blocking blood flow in arteries is usually a reason.

Now let us look at an air conditioning unit or a chiller in a cold store or any compressor.  The oil in the system starts to deposit almost immediately.  These deposits obstruct movement and the compressor has to work harder to move the oil.  This results in more electricity consumption for enabling the compressor to work harder.

Oil fouling occurs in most HVACR systems almost immediately. It is defined as “the accumulation of unwanted oil deposits on the inside of the cooling coil system and other major components restricting and inhibiting proper heat transfer exchange of an HVAC system. . .during the refrigerant compression process, oil migrates from the compressor to the coil system contaminating the metals that transfer heat,“ according to the ASHRAE Refrigeration Handbook, 1998, Chapter 6.7. Oil Fouling occurs on the inside of the coils, where technicians don’t have access.

Now for the medicine, is there one?  Yes for Oil Fouling.  There is an injection.  One ounce of this injection for a 1 Ton AC unit has been proven to remove the oil fouling and improves energy efficiency ratio. Guaranteed 5% improvement of EER.

Under the Beacon MARS process, we enabled two 5-star hotels to reduce 14% and 22% reduction in electricity consumption and an improved energy efficiency ratio.  This injection is just to be used once in three years and the injection liquid forms a coating on the oil pipe which prevents the oil fouling in the future too.

Gandhi Global Solar Yatra - journey to energy self sufficiency starting with a lamp at a time

During the British Rule of India, the basic necessities like clothing, salt and freedom of expression were curtailed.  People in India were forced to buy imported clothes made in factories from Britain.  Local weavers were left helpless.  Cotton manufacturers were becoming noncompetitive.  From this deep anguish was born “The Swadeshi Movement”.  Make in country.  When the regime came down on the people preventing them to make their own salt, Gandhi led a march on foot to Dandi how famous “Dandi March”.  We could make our own salt.  In his sayings one that rings true “I am one for production by masses rather than mass production”.

Professor Chetan Solanki shared the Gandhi Global Solar Yatra, to bring together the people of the world to realize, power can be produced by clean resources and closer to where it can be used.  This would mean, a sustainable village or block or community if they can be self sufficient in their power needs.

Celebrating the 150th birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, we are aiming to bring 1 million students together across 100 countries to assemble a Solar Study Lamp

Children play with a mobile phone quite intuitively from early age, why not have skills like assembling a solar lamp and using it imparted to students.

There is 2035, by when the heated planet would no longer be sustainable.  Let us get together and be the Change.  We invite you to become a Solar Angel.  We invite your organization to be a Solar Associate or partner. Details on ggsy.in

This is a march for “Energy Swaraj” meaning “Energy Self Sufficiency”.

Beacon Energy Solutions and Technology is proud to be associated with Gandhi Global Solar Yatra 2019 - a SoULS Initiative

Sun Dial - Jantar Mantar, New Delhi

Sun Dial - Jantar Mantar, New Delhi

A unit of measurement is the basis of Science. 

Many years ago when I first visited Delhi, dad took me to Jantar Mantar.  It has a sun dial.  I was amazed at the way man had created a structure after studying the movement of the sun and managed to map time for his understanding and functioning of day and night for 24 hours.

Energy is at the center

Energy is at the center

Measuring something – anything – brings the item to a ‘finiteness’.  Moves it from abstract to real understanding.  From magic to method.  While spirituality allows you to wonder in joy, Science strips that bare, to steps of reasoning.

One such measurement is energy consumption.  Energy is everything. 

 MARS Process

We at Beacon chose to focus on electricity and water reduction - that which is used by individuals, families, offices, buildings, restaurants, government buildings, Isn’t it time we started to do something about the high bills we are paying to produce electricity and water in the middle east region?.

The MARS process has evolved as a result of constant thinking about a methodology for reduction of consumption to support clean energy production and go towards energy self sufficiency. MARS is a comprehensive and holistic approach to sustainability that is tailor-made for this region. It considers all unique aspects of your building, the people who live in it, and the surrounding environment. MARS stands for Monitoring Audit Retrofit and Solar.

Create Clean Power

Putting up a Solar Power Plant on your roof is today possible and viable in the UAE.

The process of putting up a solar panel on the roof seems like a do-it-yourself exercise.  It may be so. 

But a lot of thought on design, selection of panels, choice of sturdy mounting structure, positioning based on the type of the roof, direction of sun and above all approvals from local government authorities is needed. 

Once we have the above ironed out, the procurement process and installation begins. 

The practical challenges of installing a solar power plant become visible when one commences the installation.  Firstly The distance between the panels have to be ideal for cleaning and aesthetics. Secondly, once stringing and cabling is complete on Direct Current side, one need to ensure all DC cables are covered.  Thirdly since the solar power produced is Direct Current and has to be converted to Alternating Current.  we need to choose the right type of inverter.  Fourthly, the inverter is followed by an interface protection panel.  This is to prevent any damage to the solar power plant in future due to any malfunctioning in the grid or reversely to prevent any damage to the gird or to the related equipment.

Then, the final step is to connect the power from home to the grid via a bi-directional meter.  This process could take anywhere between two months to four months by our experience. 

It is clean power.  It is renewable energy.  Sunshine is abundant. Carbon footprint is low. 

There are transmission losses in large scale centralized power plants.  Whereas here, the plant is close to the point of consumption.  The house gets a continuous dose of clean energy and it is something that is doable today in the UAE.

The need to move to a clean source of energy is imperative in today’s world.  The planet is getting warmer and one of these days’ sooner than later the ice-caps in the Arctic will melt.  The oceans are rising.  We need to cap our consumption and become independent power producers using clean energy.

Beacon presents first-ever Solar Hybrid Air-conditioner in the Emirate of Sharjah

Beacon Energy Solutions & Technology presented Sharjah’s first ever Solar Hybrid Air-Conditioner to His Excellency Dr. Rashid Alleem Chairman, Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority.

The Solar Hybrid Air Conditioner is critical to a sustainable future in the UAE, because cooling typically accounts for over 60 percent of a building’s energy consumption. The unit absorbs a combination of solar, ambient and recycled condenser heat using pressurized evacuated solar collectors. The resulting high temperatures help change energy friendly refrigerants from liquid to gas, thereby reducing the energy required for compression. This results in energy savings of over 40%.

Innovation in Sustainability

Innovation in Sustainability

Countries, cities and communities are exploring new ways to protect themselves from impacts of climate change in both the short and long term. There are several trends emerging in the world unseen even decades before.

Natural Resources – Energy & Efficiency

Natural Resources – Energy & Efficiency

Resources are renewable if they replace themselves naturally or if people can grow or raise continuous supplies of them. Some renewable resources are forests and animal life. People are important in determining how resources are used and renewed.

Clean Planet. Better Life. Live Longer

Clean Planet. Better Life. Live Longer

Some blame the current problem of pollution on growing population. Demographers at the United Nations tell us that world population, 6.8 billion people today, could grow to 9.2 billion by 2050. That's actually a middle-range projection. It could be as high as 10.5 billion or as low as 8 billion. A balance between the growth of population and utilization of resource is the need of the hour.
