Catalytic air cleaning system
The Trane Cataltyic Air Cleaning Systems (TCACS) by Ingersoll Rand blends particle filtration, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation, and a photocatalytic oxidation process.
The Trane Catalytic Air Cleaning System (TCACS) is a standard option with the Performance Climate Changer air handler to deliver cleaner air and better indoor air quality (IAQ) while providing lower energy and maintenance costs and reduced environmental impact compared with conventional air cleaning solutions. The Performance Climate Changer air handler with the TCACS option is ideal for healthcare facilities, offices, schools, airports, and other environments where IAQ is critical. The TCACS uses a blend of three technologies: particle filtration, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation, and a photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) process. It also features energy recovery, airflow monitoring, and advanced humidity control options.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
