Taco LoadMatch® System Beats Caribbean Heat and Humidity
The HVAC system requirements were demanding for the new office building on the island of Curacao in the Netherlands Antilles. The system had to save on energy, include an advanced, locally-supportable building management system, operate quietly - noise levels from mechanical rooms and aid distribution systems under 29 dBA - meet precise indoor comfort conditions - 71.5 degrees F, +/- 50% rh and CO2 below 900 ppm - provide individual space controls through the building management system, and be green.
The most critical requirement was consuming as little energy as possible, since Curacao has one of the highest energy costs per kW in the world, $0.33 per kW.
The local engineering and installation firm of Omni B.V., met the challenge with an innovative HVAC system that includes the Taco LoadMatch® System
along with components from other world class suppliers such as Daikin chillers from Belgium, Thermacore cold water pipe from the U.S. and Carrier modular air handlers from Brazil.

HVAC Pros Ask...
Question: Do you have any data on putting two Model 009 Cartridge Circulators in series, or possibly combining the 009 Circulator in series with another circulator to boost head and flow rates?
If any pump is put in series with another pump, the heads are additive at the same flow. To increase the flow, the pumps have to be put in parallel. With pumps in parallel, the flows are additive at the same head. When pumps are put in series, install a nipple between 2 flanges. Bolt the discharge of one pump to one flange, and the suction of the other pump to the other flange.
