All variable air volume (VAV) terminal units—including single duct, bypass, system powered induction, fan-powered or dual duct—have a common function: regulate the amount of primary air entering the terminal unit.
This control of the primary air volume can be used for the following purposes:
The primary air valve assembly contains an inlet tube, damper and air flow sensor. When sizing a terminal unit inlet, HVAC designers aim to minimize the sound generation of the terminal unit, as well accurately resolve the flow signal at both full and minimum cooling.
As you have seen in previous blogs, the Price Research Center North (PRCN) welcomes visitors from around the world to do demos and tests on a variety of projects. The team in the PRCN solve unique air distribution challenges on a daily basis, and our camera crew was able to sneak in earlier this morning to chat with one of our engineers about a demo they just finished. They were trying to answer the common question: Can you put a displacement system behind an architectural covering? Check out the video below to see what we found!
We had a very special visitor at the Price office last week. After an article about Price’s successes appeared in the newspaper, we received a letter from a gentleman named Ted who had designed Price’s first logo back in the 1940s. Gerry Price was very moved by the letter and personally called Ted to arrange for him and his wife to come in to Price for a tour. Gerry picked them up, and they had a fun afternoon reflecting on how far things have come in 60 years! Check out our behind the scenes footage from Ted’s visit to Price below. Thanks to Ted and Moira for sharing their afternoon (and their memories) with us.
If you follow us on twitter you likely saw that last night Price was honored with an award for our Health & Wellness program, “Well from Within.” Our Wellness Coordinator Robyn accepted the award last night at the Human Resources Management Association of Manitoba’s Excellence in Leadership Awards. The award criteria was for the successful organization to demonstrate a positive approach in improving a company’s ability to attract and retain people through various initiatives, including: effective communication strategies, innovative benefit programs, providing a challenging or unique work environment, effective rewards and recognition, work/life balance, and displaying a high level of employee engagement and morale. We are very proud to help contribute to happy and healthy employees – check out the twitvid of our big ”winning moment” here!
A big thank you to HRMAM for this honor!
