Nitrogen-charged air conditioner, heat pumps
Nitrogen-charged air conditioner, heat pumps by Lennox are designed to accommodate ambient temperatures up to 125 F.
Lennox released three-phase nitrogen-charge split system air conditioners and heat pumps. These nitrogen-charged products are designed to accommodate ambient temperatures up to 125 F. The units feature a nitrogen-charged, high-efficiency scroll compressor that is grommet-mounted for quiet operation and protected internally against high-temperature motor overload conditions. Enhanced aluminum fins and copper tubing coils offer high efficiency and capacity; a raised design prevents debris from collecting in the bottom of the coil, preventing loss of airflow. Both the air conditioner and heat pump units are built with a heavy-duty galvanized steel cabinet coated with a baked polyester paint finish for maximum durability. The design also includes a full metal louvered panel coil guard and rounded safety corners. Controls located in the corner post and external gauge ports offer easy installation and service. Finally, a raised base pan with ports installed with the air conditioner offers excellent water and debris drainage.

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.
