As seen at EGB 2007
On Sept. 17 and 18, HPAC Engineering held its fourth annual Engineering Green Buildings Conference and Expo in Las Vegas, during which some of the industry's most innovative companies showed off their wares. Following is a sampling of those products and literature pieces.
Benchmark boilers support dual-fuel applications (natural gas and propane). These condensing boilers have a turndown of 20:1 (the Benchmark 2.0 has a non-cycling operating range of 100,000 to 2 million Btuh) and 15:1 (the Benchmark 3.0 has a non-cycling operating range of 200,000 to 3 million Btuh) to maximize seasonal efficiency.
A new catalog from Taco outlines the company's international product lines, including commercial pumps, commercial cartridge circulators, flow-measurement products, pump accessories, tanks, heat-transfer products, electronic controls, and specialty products.
