Corrosion Resistant Polypropylene Fans and Blowers
Specialty applications require specialty solutions. Many of us are acquainted with the very specialized and generally very expensive laboratory fan systems used at universities and research labs, but what about solutions for industries that are exhausting corrosive, yet nontoxic gasses? For example, is it really necessary to use a $40,000 stainless steel high plume fan on a food process facility just to keep the exhaust system from self-destructing in a few years of use? High levels of moisture combined with various naturally occurring acids or bases are often exhaust components that food processors deal with. These exhaust streams may not require special treatment or environmental permitting, but the exhaust materials will destroy standard galvanized or aluminum fans in short order. Other big users of specialty fans are the chemical and mining industries. Scrubbers are often utilized to neutralize exhaust air streams from plants in order to meet mandated EAQ levels, but the fan delivering the air to the scrubber is fully exposed to the corrosive elements being neutralized.

High Performance PTAC Units for Hospitality and Residential Applications
Packaged Terminal Air Conditioning units (PTAC’s) are the ubiquitous solution for the roadside hospitality industry and are quickly becoming a mainstay in certain institutional settings like the assisted living center. I’d like to take this opportunity to discuss the great advantages that Friedrich PTAC’s offer your customers utilizing PTAC’s for their HVAC applications. Click the link below for a more in depth discussion of Friedrich and their highly efficient and cost effective PTAC’s and some unique applications for the Vert-I-Pak units.
HVAC Solutions for Existing Education, Medical, and Institutional Facilities
Finding high performance HVAC solutions for existing K-12, university, and other institutional facilities is always a challenge due to the age of the buildings. Meeting tight budgets often drives systems designers to simply replace existing equipment with copies of the original system with small changes in efficiency. What if there was an option to make the least physical change to the architectural components of the building while replacing obsolete equipment and achieving significant increases in system efficiencies? Airedale offers just this kind of opportunity. Click on the link to learn more about solutions to your institutional HVAC design challenges.

AAON has a great dry cooler solution for wet-side economizers and winter time process heat rejection. Take a look at the following link.
The beautiful spring weather with all of those pretty trees blooming reminded me of one of the great maintenance challenges that all water cooled system owners face – nastiness in the basin of their cooling tower or fluid cooler. All of those pretty blooms are soon to be released to the wind and a good deal of them will end up in cooling towers throughout the Treasure Valley. Read on for an overview of Puroflux Corporation’s PF-63 Series packaged sweeper/separator and how your tower can be a much nicer place to work.
Finding effective ways to use excess heat from industrial processes has always been a challenge. New technologies from equipment manufacturers can help move heat around within the plant so we don't pay to generate process heat and then pay to dispose of it with cooling towers or condensers. Take a look at the following article.
