Great video from the Loren Cook Company, showing the problems that can occur when there is “System Effect” in the ductwork. When they put helium bubbles in the airstream, you can see how severe the turbulence is. Please watch!
Air Equipment’s Matt Bystrek brings his new son Ethan to the office. Good thing, too, because we are really busy these days. Hey kiddo, can you work up a quotation for some exhaust fans?
Just another manic Friday. Doing a “Donut & Learn” presentation on a recent Friday morning at the offices of Consulting Engineering Services, in Middletown, CT. Shown here making a point by employing the “Wizard Hands” technique.
The Connecticut Chapter of ASHRAE had another exciting monthly meeting last week. In the photo on the left, Chapter President Jason Urso presides over the meeting (while Dan Cowan directs his attention, um, elsewhere). On the right are two new members of ASHRAE, Yousuf Mian with Carrier, and Air Equipment’s own Sean Duffy. Welcome aboard, guys!
Tight space? Don’t put an inline fan next to a sheet metal elbow. Let your inline fan be the 90-degree elbow. Specify Loren Cook Company’s “Side Discharge Option.” Avoid turbulence and extra pressure drop, with NO loss of performance. Let Cook’s “Side Discharge Option” get you out of a jam! Contact Air Equipment LLC for more information.
Besides representing dozens of excellent HVAC manufacturers, Air Equipment LLC also fabricates spiral ductwork. Here are a few photos of our ace machine operator, Mike McCoy, making a piece of 20″ diameter duct at our facility in East Hartford. Looking good, Mike!
No one in the state of Connecticut knows more about commercial exhaust fans than Ken Hamilton, founder and managing partner of Air Equipment LLC. Here Ken explains the inner workings of a Loren Cook laboratory exhaust fan.
After leaving the AHR Expo, I must’ve missed the exit for the Orlando Airport. Next thing I knew, I was in the Atlantic Ocean. A few days at Cocoa Beach sounds like a good idea. Man, this HVAC industry is grueling!
Third and final day of the AHR Expo. I thought this was the World’s Largest HVAC/R Marketplace, but it’s actually the Cholesterol Olympics. (And by the way, I won the gold!)
So far at the AHR Expo, the biggest attraction has been my Hartford Whalers hat! Here with Billy Farr, application engineer with our pals at FabricAir.
