Finalist in HVAC/R in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition
The BEKA cooling and heating system with microcapillary tubes system solves issues associated with traditional HVAC all-air systems. This Bio-Climatizing air conditioning system is based on the way warm-blooded organisms regulate temperature via a capillary system. The system provides air and heat through a combination of radiation (60%) and convection (40%). Capillary mats are installed in the ceiling and can be complemented with a wall and/or floor installation. BEKA mats, pipes, fittings, and valves are made of polypropylene random-copolymer Type 3, DIN 80780, which is nontoxic and can be safely recycled. The mats are flexible and can be custom-made.

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.
