SYSTEM OVERVIEW

Aquanomix Symphony is a groundbreaking data analytics tool that helps building owners and operators ensure that their systems are running as efficiently as possible, keeping in mind both water and energy consumption.  Through real-time analysis, Symphony is capable of immediately identifying issues with water quality, effectively constantly commissioning the water system.  The result is:

  • Significantly reduced total cost of ownership
  • Enterprise-level risk indicators for critical asset preservation
  • Integrated operational data from heat exchangers and condenser water treatment systems
  • New methods and tools for optimizing water, energy, and chemical usage
  • Diagnostic tool for building owners and operators, water treatment professionals, and engineers

NEXUS NUMBER™

Aquanomix has developed the Nexus Number™, a single number that indicates the health of the water system.  This number serves as a benchmark to correlate both water and energy efficiency as it relates to water quality.  Trending the Nexus Number™ provides an easy to understand indicator of how the system has performed over time.  Additionally, it can be an immediate indicator of a critical issue within the system.

The key performance indicators within the Nexus Number™ include:

  • Water Treatment Control System Data
  • Water Efficiency Data
  • Heat Exchanger Efficiency Data

NEW YORK CITY LOCAL LAW 77

Compliance with LL77 has been mandated in all buildings with cooling towers as a means of preventing outbreaks of Legionnaires Disease. With strict labor intensive requirements for continual water testing and large penalties for non-compliance or detection of Legionella Cultures; Aquanomix Symphony™can ensure condenser water systems are in full compliance.  Aquanomix Symphony™ combination of hardware and software make continual testing, reporting and record keeping effortless. learn more about Local Law 77 here 


TECHNOLOGY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Continuous commissioning with daily Nexus Number updates
  • Open protocol platform for easy system integration
  • 24/7 remote access
  • Advanced data analytics for system benchmarking
  • Scale, corrosion, microbiological, and fouling performance data points
  • Intelligent use of atmospheric condition data in control algorithms

ASSET PRESERVATION AND OPERATIONAL PREPAREDNESS

Water chemistry control significantly contributes to the preservation of critical assets. Aquanomix Symphony™ should be a part of a comprehensive asset health program to deliver higher performance. It supports the inductive reasoning of a Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) with real-time data to provide early system warnings for potential critical asset failures in cooling systems such as:

  • Pipe and/or heat exchanger corrosion
  • Biofilms
  • Fouling

LOCAL LAW 84 AND LOCAL LAW 87

New York City's local law 84 and 87 officially went into effect in 2013. These Benchmarking and Retrocommissioning requirements can be painful to a building owners and their operations teams due to the extensive amount of time that must be spent on audits.  Additionally, poor benchmarking scores can result in lost income through reduced lease valuations.  Used properly, the data logged by Aquanomix Symphony™ allows the operations team to continuously commission their systems, which ensures consistent efficient operation. This results in higher benchmarking scores and reduced time spent on audits.


LEED V4

Aquanomix Symphony™ can significantly reduce the amount of water, energy, and potentially chemicals used in evaporative cooling systems – leading to a reduced carbon footprint for your building.

Effective July 2015, LEED v4 will give significant opportunity for water side optimization to contribute to LEED certification through the following:
