ANSI/AMCA Standard 210-07 - ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 51-07 now available
The American National Standards Institute approved the standard in August 2007; ASHRAE approved it in March. Standard 210-07, "Laboratory Methods of Testing Fans for Certified Aerodynamic Performance Rating," is now available.
The Air Movement and Control Assn.ting Fans for Certified Aerodynamic Performance Rating.”
According to AMCA officials, this standard establishes uniform methods for laboratory test of a fan or other air-moving device to determine its aerodynamic performance in terms of airflow rate, pressure developed, power consumption, air density, speed of rotation, and efficiency for rating or guarantee purposes.
This standard applies to a fan or other air-moving device when air is used as the test gas with the following exceptions:
(a) air circulating fans (ceiling fans, desk fans);
(b) positive pressure ventilators;
(c) compressors with inter-stage cooling;
(d) positive displacement machines;
(e) test procedures to be used for design, production, or field testing.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
