Boilermakers Bracing for Decline in Orders
With the United States and much of the world mired in a recession, it is no surprise that many industrial- and commercial/institutional-boiler manufacturers are expecting tough times in 2009. How tough is anyone's guess.
Focus on Energy Driving AHR EXPO
The annual International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo), scheduled for Jan. 26 to 28 at Chicago's McCormick Place may not surpass last year's record-breaking expo in New York City, but it appears it will be a well-attended event.
Energy Efficiency
Greenbuild International Conference and Expo just continues to grow. Proving that last year's impressive attendance was no fluke, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the show's sponsor, said attendance for the 2008 event, held Nov. 19-21 in Boston, was just over 28,000 — an increase of about 20 percent over 2007. That's big.

Engineering Study: The Future of Chilled Water Plants and Waterside Economizers

An engineering study was completed to compare a water-cooled centrifugal chiller with a waterside economizer, to a single water-cooled magnetic bearing centrifugal chiller operating in inverted duty - the YORK YMC2 chiller. In this webinar the results of the study will be presented, summarizing the differences between the two options in terms of chiller plant design, first costs, operating costs, and ownership (maintenance, footprint, and controls). Attendees of this webinar will learn:...More
