TJ Volonis, a talented Brooklyn artist/designer, makes sculptures and furniture just out of copper tubes and pipes. His creative business started quite unintentionally. His roommate moved out and left him a rickety coffee table. He didn’t have money that time so he decided to knock the legs off and use copper tubes for building a new base. The same period of time he was volunteering for a benefit art auction , he bought materials from Home Depot, drafted and created a design and entered it under a pseudonym. It won the first place in its category, attracted attention of people so he was encouraged to continue with his art.

A lot of his inspiration comes from New York City and its industrial infrastructure. He likes looking at train tracks, bridges or plumbing through his artistic lens and beyond that utility he sees something beautiful. According to his words, copper has its own sense of expression.

Čo ste o klimatizáciach doteraz nevedeli

Aj keď nie som veľký fanúšik klimatizácie, v niektorých častiach sveta by som sa bez nej zrejme nezaobišla. Niet žiadnych pochýb, že vynález klimatizácie sa považuje za jeden z najdôležitejších v 20.storočí, ktorý ovplyvnil svet, v dobrom aj v zlom. Napriek faktu, že klimatizácia nám potichu hučí v pozadí, veľa toho o nej nevieme.

Základné fakty o klimatizácii

Willis Carrier

Prvá moderná klimatizácia bola vyvinutá Willisom Carrierom v roku 1902 pre nakladateľskú spoločnosť v Brooklyne. Teplota a vlhkosť sa udržovali na nízkych hodnotách, aby sa papier nescvrkol alebo nezväčšil. Klimatizácia prvotne nebola určená pre komfort ľudí.

Každá klimatizácia sa skladá zo 4 častí : čerpadlo, výparník, kondenzátor a expanzný ventil.  Väčšina klimatizácií je na začiatku procesu len surový materiál vo forme oceľových plátov. Keď tieto oceľové pláty putujú do výroby, režú sa, formujú či ohýnajú do užitočných tvarov. Klimatizácia sa vyrába z pozinkovanej ocele, ktorá ju chráni pred koróziou.

All air conditioners have four basic components: pump, evaporator, condenser, and expansion valve. Hot refrigerant vapor is pumped at high pressure through the condenser, where it gives off heat to the atmosphere by condensing into a liquid. The cooled refrigerant then passes through the expansion valve, which lowers the pressure of the liquid. The liquid refrigerant now enters the evaporator, where it will take heat from the room and change into a gaseous state. This part of the cycle releases cool air into the air-conditioned building. The hot refrigerant vapor is then ready to repeat the cycle.

Zaujímavé fakty o klimatizácii

  • prvé verejné priestory, ktoré mali klimatizáciu boli kiná. Počas horúcich letných dní, boli kiná najchladnejším miestom v meste, takže si asi viete predstaviť tie zástupy ľudí. Filmové štúdia začali dávať do kín najlepšie produkcie počas letných mesiacov, a tak vznikli letné trháky.
  • každý rok Spojené štáty americké použijú rovnaké množstvo energie na chod klimatizácií ako Afrika použije na chod celého kontinentu.
  • predstavenie klimatizácie v skutočnosti znížilo prirodzenú ľudskú toleranciu voči teplu.
  • prvá budova, ktorá použila klimatizáciu, bola budova New York Stock Exchange v roku 1903
  • po tom, čo klimatizácia prišla na svet, sa dizajnovanie a stavanie domov či budov zmenilo. Tehlové štruktúry s vysokými stropmi, verandami a pasážami, ktoré prinášali tieň ich obyvateľom už nie sú v móde.

Shanghai Metal Corporation tiež používa klimatizáciu, no zároveň predáva pozinkovanú oceľ, oceľové pláty a iné kovové produkty. Pre viac informácií navštívte webové stránky alebo nám zašlite dopyt. Stiahnite si tiež aplikáciu oskenovaním QR kódu.
