AIR CONDITIONING FOR HOSPITALS

Application: San Pier Damiano Hospital

Specialised hospital with 148 beds
Enhanced Hydronic System
Year 2010


The adoption of the enhanced hydronic system, ensuring the environmental comfort and air quality, fully complies with the GVM Care & Research Ethics Code, which engages its operators in favor of the total well-being of each patient. Also from the economic point of view, this system has satisfied the Customer requirements, both for the initial financial investment and above all for the management costs, which are fundamental in the budget of a 24-hour operating structure.

 

“The solutions adopted, namely the high dehumidifying capacity and electronic filtering, have noticeably increased the quality of air in the wards, as noticed by users and operators.
The system proved to be able to work non-stop also in very severe weather conditions with outdoor temperatures between -15°C e +40°C.

The gradual execution of the works in one area at a time avoided disruption to healthcare services. The second primary air system was purchased and installed a year after the first one, which also spread the investment. The air flow rates were set in relation to specific needs on a case-by-case basis, until the current final set-up was identified.
The choice of stand-alone primary air systems allowed the client to keep existing cooling and heating fluids and reduce their use to a minimum. Therefore, it was not necessary to invest in a new heating and cooling unit.
Works on the roof were minimal too, thanks to the system's very compact design and the presence of just two pipes for the fluids.
The high energy efficiency and positive experience led GVM Care & Research to also choose Clivet to increase the efficiency of the chilling system, where one of the existing chilling units was replaced with a SPINchiller2 with modular Scroll technology with a capacity of over 500 kW.”

“Comfort and optimization of installation time
without interruption of health services.”

Other Clivet solutions for hospitals

ENHANCED VRF

Inpatient wards, waiting rooms, outpatient departments and common areas are air-conditioned by VRF direct expansion systems, which heat, cool and produce domestic hot water.
The air renewal and purification can be assigned to:

- ZEPHIR3, the complete and autonomous system for handling primary air with active thermodynamic recovery and electronic filtration

- AQX air handling units, which ensure proper air distribution in the environment, purify the air by filtration, cool or heat as needed, manage the humidity where necessary, ensure the necessary air renewal.
