Avoid Boiler Issues This Winter

Remote Boiler Monitoring

Another big holiday has passed, and we hope yours was bright and merry. The tinsel, wrapping paper, tree-lights, boxes, carolers and guests are gone, and you’re now digging in for the long cold.

Subzero winter temperatures can stress boilers and burst frozen pipes in any commercial building. Steam or water leaks, drips and power losses can also disrupt business or result in costly repairs, downtime and occupant discomfort. No one is happier than those doing emergency repair when your boiler takes a dive.

Pilot lights that keep going out can be a sign of buildup or corrosion. Lime deposits can restrict water flow to heat exchangers. Excess internal boiler pressure during operation might cause that expensive machine to explode or rupture.

Commercial boilers commonly burn fossil fuels that produce toxic emissions, so clear ventilation, exhausts and efficient combustion must be maintained. Boilers are huge sources of stored energy, which makes safety and regular maintenance a major concern.

Don’t let your boilers crash this season or the next, and save time and resources at the same time. Monitor and maintain boiler performance to prevent expensive downtime and repairs using best-in-class, low-cost remote monitoring boiler solutions from Monnit.

Monnit IoT Sensors Help Protect U.S. Food Supply

Lineage Logistics uses Monnit Corporation’s IoT temperature and vibration sensors to cut energy costs and protect billions of pounds in warehoused food.

Food safety is a priority if you warehouse and ship billions of pounds of food destined for Walmart, Costco and local grocery stores in the U.S. Product must be protected in the most energy-efficient way.

This is a daily challenge for San Francisco food processing, warehousing and distribution company, Lineage Logistics, a Top 2 North America temperature-controlled warehousing company with more than 518 million cubic feet of freezer and cooler capacity, serving roughly 20 to 25 percent of the U.S. third-party cold food chain.

IoT Sensors Protect Food and Reduce Energy Costs

Due to the size of their refrigerated warehouses, Lineage was seeing temperature gradients from one side of the warehouse to the other. Doors opening and thermal load from rooftops can cause temperatures to vary outside ooptimal range in some areas of the warehouse. Rather than lowering the temperature of the entire warehouse to account for warm spots, they use Monnit’s wireless temperature sensors to create a heat map of the warehouse and adjust airflow to address the warmer areas without needing to over cool the entire building, providing significant cost savings.

Lineage is also using Monnit vibration sensors to monitor refrigeration compressors, helping them predict issues and avoid high repair costs and compressor breakdowns. Monnit sensors can also prevent another common refrigeration problem called “liquid hammer,” a pressure spike caused when fluid in the refrigeration pipes is forced to stop or change direction suddenly.

Lineage currently uses approximately 1,500 AA battery-powered wireless sensors from Monnit across a few of its facilities, and they look to expand that into many more buildings in the near future.
