Cooling and heat pump system
The ClassMate vertical DX cooling and heat pump system by Modine Manufacturing Co. is offered in four capactiies and includes a CF microchannel evaporator coil.
The ClassMate vertical DX cooling and heat pump system by Modine Manufacturing Co. is engineered with efficiency, noise reduction, and a smaller footprint in mind. Available this spring, the ClassMate will be offered in four capacities, from 2 to 5 cooling tons in two cabinet sizes, and will have a 15% EER increase over the existing ClassMate HE. One of the ClassMate’s significant improvements is that it includes a CF microchannel evaporator coil. This technology, combined with a reduced refrigerant charge and airside pressure drop, allows enough space to be opened up for all heat exchangers—indoor coil, hot gas reheat coil, and hot-water coil or electric heat elements—to be factory-installed in the ClassMate unit. The end result is a model that does not require a plenum for additional heat, as well as reduced installation time and the need for additional equipment.

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.
