Choose the Right Electric Control Panels

What does an electric control panel do?

An electric control panel allows you to control a specific set of equipment, e.g. a pump set. Think of it as a switchboard; it allows you the regulate the operations carried out by each piece of equipment. This is why electric control panels have very high utility in industrial procedures.

Apart from being one of the best water pump dealers in Mumbai, Vijay Engineering Machinery Company is a leading provider of high-quality electric control panels. We provide a variety of electric control panels for numerous industrial processes.

A Guide to Kirloskar’s HVAC Systems

What is an HVAC system?

Today, good air conditioning/heating have become indispensable, be it residences or office spaces. HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. It may also be referred to as HVACR, ‘R’ being refrigeration. It uses outdoor air to regulate and maintain preferable temperature and humidity indoors. Ventilation is of utmost importance here because it ensures the circulation of fresh air indoors.

Kirloskar’s HVAC systems

Kirloskar is the largest manufacturer and exporter of pumping systems, pumps and valves in India. It offers all-inclusive solutions for the HVAC industry.

  • Service backup- Kirloskar offers 24-hour service backup, energy audit, Operation & Maintenance contracts, etc.
  • Pumps- These are essential components of an HVAC system. A pump cycles hot or cold air. It absorbs heat from a cold area and releases it into a warmer zone. Hence, it is crucial for temperature regulation.

Kirloskar has a variety of different pumps available for HVAC needs:

  • End suction, back pull out type long-coupled pumps- These include the DB, CE, CPHM, MF, DBL, KPD models. The iCP variant is the newest addition to this range and has a mechanical seal which eliminates the possibility of leakages.
  • Double suction, horizontal axially split case long coupled pumps- These encompass the UP, UPLV, UPH, UPM, SCT and SCT Extended variants. The iHT model is the latest one available and offers high speeds up to 2900 rpm.
  • Vertical axially split single/multistage pumps- These include the iHTV, UPV and SCTV variants.
  • Vertical inline single/multistage pumps- Single stage pumps in this category include ILS and the IN IL models, while multistage pumps comprise of IL, KCIL and KSIL models.
  • Close coupled pumps- These include the DBC (single stage), KDS and KDT (multistage) variants.

Switching to Solar Energy Made Easy by VEMC’s EPC Services

We’re all well aware of the harmful effects of using fossil fuels. It increases our carbon footprint and accelerates Global Warming. Solar energy is one of the most sustainable forms of energy today, not only because it doesn’t add to Global Warming but also because it makes use of the incident sun light, which is available in abundance.

If you’re considering switching to solar energy, you’ve probably already decided whether you’re going to opt for an OPEX financial model or a CAPEX one.In our article titled ‘Choose the Right Financial Model for Your Solar Energy’, we talked about the benefits of each one. This article is for those who want to opt for the CAPEX model.

So, what is EPC?

When it comes to solar energy, EPC stands for Engineering, Procurement and Construction. It’s a process adopted by a company installing a PV system for you. In the CAPEX model, Vijay Engineering and Machinery Company carries out EPC. Having worked with industries for decades, we provide top-notch solutions for solar lighting systems. We undertake a comprehensive 6-step process to install your PV system.

Site identification:When you first get in touch with us with your solar energy requirements, we go over the requirements and start working on what we can offer.

Pre-feasibility study:We visit your site and examine various factors like the location of your premises to see if solar energy would be suitable.

Feasibility study:If your site is suitable for a PV system, we carry out further examinations to study various aspects of your premises to ensure that a PV system would be feasible. We then start working on a plan for the installation of the system.

Detailed design:We prepare a detailed blueprint of the system and present it to you for approval. We then fine-tune the design and finalize the specifications of the plan.

Supply and construction: We begin construction and take care of everything ranging from high-quality materials and labour to the timely completion of the project. We install solar panels, accessories, etc. and complete the solar implementation in your power supply system.

Commissioning: We undertake the commissioning of your PV system to ensure that it operates smoothly.
Once we complete this 6-step procedure, we transfer the ownership of your brand-new PV system to you. It really is that simple! Want to switch to solar energy? Check out our website for more details or contact us!
