Lower your energy consumption using ultrasound

By Torbjörn Bruzelius, October 04 2017


Ventilation constitutes 30 per cent of a building’s total energy consumption. Investing in a ventilation system using new ultrasound technology will help you cut operating costs and help reach the EU’s target of reducing energy consumption by 20 per cent by 2020.

If we are to limit human impact on the Earth’s climate, several things need to be done. In 2007, EU leaders agreed on a set of goals. One of these was to reduce energy consumption in the member states by 20 per cent by the year 2020.

The increased focus on climate has inspired companies and industries to start developing new solutions that will help reach the targets. Lindab is no exception and by working to minimize air leakage and to optimize the ventilation systems we can make a lasting difference.

A revolution in the ventilation industry

In 2015, we started developing a new technology for measuring air flow and temperature in ventilation systems. Using ultrasound sensors, UltraLink provides a very accurate measurement of the entire airflow area without causing extra pressure loss in a ventilation system. Since the technology is based on ultrasound sensors there are no obstacles in the air stream on which dirt can gather. This means uninterrupted airflow without extra pressure loss, offering unique benefits in terms of energy efficiency, simplicity and cleaning. Needless to say, the product revolutionized the ventilation industry at the time.LindabStill_hiRes_05_pic01_skugga.pngChanging the rules once again

During the last couple of years, an increased focus on energy savings in our business have made demand control ventilation systems with low volume flows increasingly common. This in turn increases the need for measuring devices and methods with even higher accuracy in low volume flow conditions.

The new and improved UltraLink, that will soon be available, will take precise measuring of air flows one step further. Controlling the dampers in the first version of the system was possible, but required a connection through a master unit to be able to control the damper with UltraLink. In the new and improved version both measuring equipment and dampers are integrated into one solution. The result? Fewer parts, less cabling and more control enabling you to optimize your ventilation system.

In the next version, we aim to add wireless connection to the product which will simplify system settings, saving you a lot of time and money. Lindab can’t save the climate, but by constantly developing new solutions and introducing innovations to the market we can do our share.
