plus allows calculation of the life-cycle costs (LCC, see chart) for the GEA central air-handling equipment CAIR, ATpicco, and COM4. This calculation function enables fast and precise estimation of how fast an energy-efficient equipment version will be amortized (graphics:  GEA Happel Klimatechnik).

To simplify the selection of optimal features, the design software Lplus compares a number of different equipment variants and visualizes the overall cost benefits of efficiency-enhancing measures. Planners can use such comparative presentations as argumentation aids when meeting with investors. The calculations performed by Lplus are based on the Eurovent Recommendations for Calculation of Life-Cycle Costs, and take into account important standards and regulation complexes (e.g., DIN V18599-3 and VDI 2067-1).

The present LCC calculation features are a constituent part of in-house GEA software, with the result that their use with potential customers is limited to designing cost- and energy-optimized central air-handling equipment together with their GEA specialists. Beginning in spring of 2008, however, the LCC functions will also be available through an operator-friendly interface in the customer version of Lplus.

The GEA Lplus CDs for Microsoft Windows can be requested free of charge from the following address: info@gea-airtreatment.com
