Vertical DX, heat pump system
Modine's redesigned Airedale ClassMate single packaged vertical direct exchange (DX) and heat pump system features a CF microchannel evaporator coil and has modulating, electronically commutated fan motors.
Modine's redesigned Airedale ClassMate single packaged vertical direct exchange (DX) and heat pump system is offered in four capacities of 24 to 60 MBH in two cabinet sizes. Also, the energy efficiency ratio (EER) is boosted up to 12% over the existing ClassMate HE for integrated part-load values up to 16.1. A major addition is a CF microchannel evaporator coil, which replaces the traditional larger coil. This allows extra space to be opened up for multiple supplemental heat exchangers such as a hot gas reheat coil, hot-water coil, or electric heat elements-factory-installed in the ClassMate unit. The result is a more compact model that does not require a plenum for additional heat and reduced installation time. Other features include modulating, electronically commutated fan motors, the availability of combination energy recovery and economizer modules, and the use of R410a refrigerant.

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.
