HVAC and REFRIGERATIONS

HVAC and refrigeration equipment help skeep industrial, commercial, and residential facilities properly heated, cooled, and ventilated to maintain a comfortable environment. Heaters provide warmth in the winter. Fans and air conditioners cool off areas in the summer. Air filters help remove dust and other airborne contaminants from the air stream to improve indoor air quality. Thermostats and controls help streamline the operation of HVAC systems to improve their efficiency. Refrigeration supplies are used to maintain refrigerators, air conditioners, and other HVAC equipment that use refrigerant to keep them working as expected.

Ventilation Equipment and Supplies

Air curtains provide a barrier of air to help lower energy costs by eliminating untempered outside air from entering through open doors. Exhaust fans force out stale air and pull in fresh, clean air for a more comfortable environment. Combusion air intake systems control the amounts of outside air for proper combustion of oil and gas heating appliances and for more efficent heating. Duct fans increase capacity to HVAC systems, while ductwork circulates air throughout a building. Energy recovery ventilators regulate the temperature and humidity of the fresh air they pull in and can improve indoor air quality. Kitchen and range hoods maintain proper ventilation in kitchen and cooking areas. Portable blowers and carpet dryers quickly dry wet carpeting, rugs, and other flooring surfaces. Direct-drive and belt-drive tubeaxial fans are used to help exhaust contaminated or hot air created in industrial applications, and supply air to help cool or pressurize interior spaces.

Equipment-Cooling & Axial Fans

Equipment-cooling fans and axial fans cool machinery and equipment enclosures when passive ventilation from ambient air or louvers isn’t enough. They regulate enclosure temperatures by bringing cool air in or pushing hot air out to reduce wear on equipment components and help prevent breakdowns or damage. Also known as enclosure fans or cabinet-cooling fans, these fans are often placed near motors and power sources that generate heat. They provide a long service life to withstand daily use in manufacturing plants, warehouses, transportation facilities, and other heavy-use environments.

Air Filter

Industrial HVAC air filters are installed in commercial HVAC systems to remove airborne contaminants from the air stream. This helps improve indoor air quality and prevents the build up of contaminants in equipment and damaging it. The Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating of a filter measures how efficiently it removes contaminants from the air stream based on the size of the particles it can effectively capture. The higher a filter’s MERV rating the more effectively the filter traps small particles.

MULTI-JACKBOLT TENSIONING

Superbolt tensioners offer you simple and cost-effective tightening of large size bolts. Your joints can be tightened with high accuracy without requiring specialized skills or heavy tooling.

A wide range of tensioners is available in the standard series, as well as an unlimited capacity to create special designs to meet your unique needs.

MULTI-JACKBOLT TENSIONING

Superbolt multi-jackbolt tensioners (MJTs) take the high preload requirements in large diameter bolting and break it down into manageable torques using the jackbolts threaded through the nut body.

EXPANSION SLEEVE COUPLING BOLTS

Superbolt expansion bolts are truly fitted into the hole due to the radial expansion of the conical bore sleeve.

By design, accurate radial force combined with the known axial clamping load, provides total protection against coupling slippage and thus prevents bolt and hole damage during subsequent removals.

The expansion bolts can be retrofitted to replace traditional interference or force fitted bolts, reliably and cost-effectively.

How it works

By pulling a taper body bolt through a taper bore sleeve, the sleeve expands to completely fill the coupling hole, becoming a truly fitted bolt.

  Advantages

  • Truly fitted bolt with radial expansion
  • Safe, reliable and easy installation and removal
  • No coupling slippage
  • No hole damage or re-machining
  • Easy retrofit package
  • Compact, ergonomic tooling
  • Accurate maintenance scheduling

THE EXPANDER SYSTEM

Lug wear is a common problem with all machinery. Repairs involve a costly, time-consuming process with significant downtime and must be repeated several times over a machine’s life.

The Expander System is perfect for repairs ; even if the lugs are badly worn a repair can be made in the field with minimum downtime. If the lugs are worn, the sleeves simply expand to conform to the wear patterns and lock the system in place without the need for time-consuming and ex­pensive welding and line boring – just a re-torque.

PIVOT PIN TECHNOLOGY

Lug wear is a common problem with all machinery. Repairs involve a costly, time-consuming process with significant downtime and must be repeated several times over a machine’s life.

With the Expander System, the repair can be carried out directly in the worn mountings without welding and line boring – a permanent solution to lug wear.

QUALITY & TRACEABILITY

The patented Expander System has been endurance tested for over 50,000 hours without failure and more than 1 million pivot pins have been installed in over 60,000 applications. 

Our production facilities around the world are equipped to enable high-speed manufacturing and delivery of complete pivot assemblies. 

We in­vest in the latest production technol­ogy to ensure maximum capability and quality, and we produce all parts of the Expander System.

Certificates 

We can deliver certificates and test­ing according to your needs. For exam­ple, certificates according to EN10204 or Ultrasonic-, Magnetic particle- and Charpy testing.

WEDGE-LOCK WASHERS

Nord-Lock created the original wedge-locking technology that secures bolted joints, even when exposed to severe vibration and dynamic loads. It is impossible for our products to loosen unintentionally due to the wedge created underneath the bolt head and nut.

WEDGE-LOCKING TECHNOLOGY

Nord-Lock wedge-locking technology secures bolted joints with tension instead of friction. The system is composed of a pair of lock washers with cams on one side and radial teeth on the other.

Nord-Lock wedge-locking products secure the fastener in a joint which cannot be loosened even when subjected to extreme vibration or dynamic loads. The Nord-Lock range includes steel construction washers, wheel nuts, combi bolt washers and custom solutions.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL WEDGE-LOCKING

Bolted joints fail for two reasons – spontaneous bolt loosening and slackening. Nord-Lock multifunctional wedge-locking technology tackles both.

The wedge-effect prevents spontaneous bolt loosening, whilst the spring effect compensates for loss of preload due to slackening – offering you total security for those situations when there can be no compromise.
