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
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.
