GJ Walker announces new industrial fan division as Walker Industrial Systems (WIS)

GJ Walker Air Handling Systems has announced its new industrial fan division, Walker Industrial Systems (WIS), as part of the company’s new focus on the industrial ventilation market.

The GJ Walker Group says WIS will add a range of industrial fans and blowers to its portfolio of products, bringing a new market with different ventilation requirements that complements its existing successful air handling systems business.

Servicing clients nationally, WIS will be headed up by two experienced fan engineers in Steve McGuire, with more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, and Sudevan Nallathamby, extending his current position as GJ Walker general manager to also include WIS Director.

Damon Walker, Affil.AIRAH, managing director of GJ Walker Air Handling Systems, says the company is looking forward to a new chapter that will extend its breadth of business in the ventilation market.

“With Sudevan as general manager of the business, his outstanding knowledge, experience, and skills from over 20 years in the industrial ventilation industry makes WIS an exciting addition to the GJ Walker Group,” says Damon. “I look forward to a talented team servicing the industrial fan business as GJ Walker has in air handling units for almost 50 years.”

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

The HVAC-related energy usage of a group of three existing buildings on a Canadian university campus (the “Cluster”) was simulated. Two scenarios were compared: (1) an ambient loop paired with conventional HVAC equipment (boiler plant and cooling tower), and (2) an ambient loop using wastewater energy transfer (“WET”). The study aimed to assess the feasibility of implementing WET as a heating and cooling method for cold-climate institutional buildings, as well as to measure the effects of WET implementation on energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy costs
