Agbar Tower

Agbar Tower, Barcelona

Agbar Tower is a 32-story office complex located directly on the famed Plaça de les Glòries Catalanes in Barcelona. Its outer form resembles that of the 30 St Mary Axe office building in London, which was built at around the same time. Agbar Tower’s glass facade is intended to represent a water fountain which changes its colors depending on the angle of the light. This is accomplished with 40 different shades of paint that reflect the light in different ways. The effect is reinforced by thousands of glass louvers that are mounted on the outside of the facade to provide sun protection.

Based on the position of the sun, they turn to provide the highest possible degree of reflection, and to create natural air circulation inside the building. At night, Agbar Tower is lit by 4,500 LED spotlights in changing colors and can be seen from far away — every bit as clearly as by day. Condair RS steam humidifiers provide optimal humidity levels for visitors to Agbar Tower.


Condair RS

Resistive steam humidifier

Condair RS

The Condair RS steam humidifiers boast patented limescale management which prevents permanent deposition of limescale on heater rods. Limestone crusts are successively detached and removed from the steam cylinder into the limescale collection vessel. Limestone management ensures extremely short waiting times and a long life.

The innovative control system fitted with a touch display ensures outstanding transparency of function and precise steam delivery. The units are the result of decades of experience and they define the state of the art in modern steam humidification.

Flexible choice of water

A resistance heating system works independently of the conductivity of the humidifying water.
For this reason, Condair RS steam humidifiers are suitable for use both with demineralized water and drinking water.
When using demineralized water, maintenance is reduced to periodic function checks.

If steam humidifiers are to be operated with drinking water, then Condair RS steam humidifiers should
always be your first choice, because the patented limescale management system ensures a high degree
of reliability even when the water contains limestone. Flexible choice of water

A technical innovation that solves the limescale problem

Patented limescale management removes the separated minerals
from the steam cylinder during operation and automatically conveys them into the designated
limescale collecting vessel. Limescale deposits are thus continuously removed from the steam cylinder.

The pieces of limescale are collected in an
external limescale collecting vessel and can easily be emptied from there. Maintenance work is significantly reduced
and operational reliability is maximized. The patented limescale management system ensures
reduced maintenance times and long life of RS steam humidifiers.

Touch Controller for precise control

The Condair Touch Controller allows viewing of all unit and process data.
Operating data can be called up in real time, and there is a comprehensive data history. The electronic control system
allows the steam output to be varied continuously between 0 and 100%; this means
accurate control and management of the steam delivery rate.

Precise regulation

Perfect connectivity

The RS series steam humidifier includes an interface for connection to current BMS systems
(Modbus and BACnet) as standard.
