www.mcquay.comMcQuay International introduces Delivered variable air volume (VAV) systems for consistent room temperature comfort. McQuay’s complete system makes the benefits of VAV simple and affordable for those who own, construct, maintain and occupy small and medium sized buildings.

The new Delivered VAV Systems by McQuay offer benefits to building owners, occupants, installers and facility managers. For building owners, the systems are more efficient than constant volume systems. It delivers only the precise amount of conditioned air for a particular space that needs to stay comfortable, while electrical energy stays low.  The system is the gold standard for consistent occupant comfort as building load changes during the day due to occupancy variations or outdoor conditions.

For contractors, the Delivered VAV Systems are fast and easy to install. Field start-up for an entire building network consisting of two 50-ton rooftops and 20 to 40 VAV boxes can typically be completed in hours and does not require additional software licensing. To save time, the configuration files are created for each unique system and preloaded into the system controller. Application data is loaded and tested, at the factory for the VAV box and air handling unit controllers. Commissioning process is automated by McQuay’s advanced software and easy-to-use touch screen controller.

www.mcquay.comThe McQuay Delivered VAV Systems offer reliable control with access from any computer with the web based interface, without additional hardware. Technicians in a remote location can check status, respond to alarms and determine if an on-site service call is required; all through the easy to use web interface. The system includes control and monitoring applications to make building system control as comfortable and efficient as possible that include – scheduling, system summary, remote monitoring, alarm management and data logs.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

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.
