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.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
