Energy recover ventilator
Greenheck Introduces Model ERCH-HP Energy Recovery Ventilator with Integral Water Source Heat Pump
Greenheck’s Model ERCH-HP, a pre-engineered energy recovery ventilator incorporating an integral water source heat pump, provides an alternative for 100% outdoor air applications traditionally requiring custom-built equipment. The integral water source heat pump module is capable of conditioning outdoor air throughout the year as it includes both heating and cooling cycles, and coupling the heat pump with a total energy recovery wheel optimizes the unit efficiency. A dedicated outdoor air unit that provides ventilation for water source and geothermal applications, Model ERCH-HP features performance ranges from 1,000 to 10,000 cfm and 4 to 30 tons of mechanical cooling capacity. Model ERCH-HP is licensed to bear the AMCA Seal for Air Performance.
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.
