1 IMI Graduates do GREAT things Asger AndersenR&D ManagerIMI Hydronic Engineering Switzerland
2 Who are we?IMI is now a specialist flow control group entirely focused on industrial end markets. This strong foundation creates greater opportunities for technical and operational synergies and provides an excellent platform for future growth.Our Critical Engineering division is a world leading provider of highly-engineered flow control solutions for critical applications that are able to withstand temperature and pressure extremes and intensely abrasive and corrosive cyclical operations.Our Precision Engineering division specialises in the design and manufacture of pneumatic and other flow control technologies for applications where precision, speed and reliability are essential.Our Hydronic Engineering division is the leading global provider of technologies that deliver operational and energy efficient water-based heating and cooling systems inside buildings.Our businesses comprise approximately 12,000 employees providing innovative knowledge-based engineering solutions for market-leading customers around the world.
3 What we do in IMIYou are never far away from an IMI product. In fact, we’re one of the world’s biggest, most innovative engineering companies with a history spanning 150 years. In 2010, we entered the FTSE 100, and these days we have operations in over 20 countries right across the globe.
5 IMI Hydronic Engineering – what we do IMI Hydronic Engineering is the world leader and expert in hydronic distribution systems.Worldwide sales of GBP 305 million (2013)Approximately 1,900 employees worldwide3 strong product ranges form the cornerstones of the CompanyTeil von IMI plcGroßunternehmen mit insgesamt Mitarbeitern
6 Energy Efficiency – a global concern 40% of the world’s energy is used in buildings*50% of this energy is used in HVAC systems*Hydronic optimization can reduce the total energy consumption of the HVAC system by 30% on average(*) Sources: European Commission EPBD (point 6, pp1) & US Department of Energy’s “Buildings Energy Data Book”
7 Carbon footprint and Economic Payback Balancing and Room Temperature Control 10 monthsCO2~12 days~7 yearsLoft Insulation 3-5 yearsBoiler 10 yearsNew windowsmore than 30 yearsOur goal: to spread awareness among consumers that good hydronic balancing and room temperature control constitute one of the highest energy saving measures, at the lowest cost and offering the fastest pay-back.
8 Hydronic System Solutions Our broad and innovative range of products comprises all HVAC installation distribution requirements: from Pressure maintenance and water quality on Balancing and Control to thermostatic control. Each product has been specifically designed to do its job with maximum efficiency.Balancing & ControlPressurisation & Water QualityThermostatic Control
9 Example: TA-FUSION-P control valve series Example of our new control valve range, the TA-FUS1ON seriesDP Controller – dynamically working valve which does not require external power supply!DP plug – opens and closes automatically to keep constant flow on desired levelUnique shape of channel allows for high water velocity without noise generationDP controller allows to keep constant flow throughout the valve despite the Δp what have a great impact on the comfort and energy efficiency in the system
