Air-cooled packaged modular chiller
Climacool has developed a modular chiller designed to eliminate the need for cooling towers and reduce water treatment requirements.
Climacool Corp.’s UCA air-cooled packaged modular chiller offers flexibility to meet various engineering needs with three simple operating requirements: air, water, and electricity. This eliminates any need for cooling towers and reduces water treatment requirements while offering a minimum of 10.0 EER at full load. UCA modules are available in 20- and 30-ton units, which, when combined, can obtain specific project turndown and capacity requirements up to 360 tons per bank providing maximum redundancy for all cooling needs—comfort or data center. The UCA can satisfy future incremental growth needs by simply adding modules as building size or occupancy rates grow. Climacool’s UCA modules are quiet, serviceable, and efficient systems that offer long lifecycles. LEED categories satisfied by the UCA system include sustainable sites and building reuse, water efficiency, enhanced commissioning and measurement verification, optimized energy performance, and thermal comfort.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
