Injection mixing system
Taco's LOFlo injection mixing system
Taco’s LOFlo injection mixing system enhances the energy efficiency of chilled beam systems. When compared to traditional HVAC systems, radiant cooling and chilled beams reduce fan electrical energy demand and consumption up to 10 times. The challenge has been that pump energy demand doubles. Taco’s LOFlo injection mixing system solves this problem because its mixing block consists of a variable speed injection circulator and constant-speed zone circulator. The LOFlo system reduces the electrical energy demand of an all-air system by up to 40%. It also accomplishes chilled beam BTU transport with only one-third of the energy needed by chilled beam systems without injection mixing.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
