Water source heat pumps
A-Vintage horizontal and vertical water source heat pumps by Mammoth.
A-Vintage horizontal (½ to 6 tons) and vertical (1 to 6 tons) water source heat pumps from Mammoth provide energy efficiency in geothermal and boiler/tower heating and cooling applications. With an energy efficiency ratio up to 21.0 and a coefficient of performance up to 5.6, units can help lower energy consumption, operating costs, and the carbon footprint of an HVAC system over its lifecycle. Units are ETL listed and AHRI/ISO 13256-1 certified for capacity and efficiency. Several control options are available to meet different needs for system monitoring and management. A standard DDC controller can easily be customized to meet any sequence of operation required in stand-alone mode or while connected to a BAS that uses industry-standard protocols (BACnet, Modbus, N2, and LONTALK).
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.
