Integrated kitchen ventilation system
Greenheck’s Vari-Flow integrated kitchen ventilation systems reduce energy costs by modulating exhaust and supply airflows to match cooking operation demands and have temperature sensors that are exposed to quick changes in cooking activity.
Greenheck’s Vari-Flow integrated kitchen ventilation systems allow food service managers and building owners to reduce energy costs by more precisely modulating exhaust and supply airflows to match cooking operation demands. Temperature sensors located in the hoods’ capture area are directly exposed to quick changes in cooking activity that result in a five times faster response to cooking load changes. This feature, coupled with fan-speed turndown of 50% and high-efficiency Vari-Green motors, offers total energy savings in terms of electrical, heating, and cooling costs. Greenheck’s Vari-Flow kitchen ventilation system can be controlled with a keypad or the touchscreen control that features independent light and fan control, programmable fan scheduling, VFD and help diagnostics to monitor energy usage, and live/historical energy monitoring and trending. The Vari-Flow system is compatible with BACnet MSTP/IP, LON, and ModBus to easily integrate the system into a wide range of building management systems.

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.
