Over the past two years 50 Price staff members have been working relentlessly on the first-ever Price Engineer’s HVAC Handbook—a groundbreaking industry resource that combines the application of fundamental HVAC concepts with field experience and design guidance.
This 1,300 page reference text features 99 examples, 15 research highlights and over 1,000 graphics to help explain concepts and systems, our hope is that this handbook will be of benefit to all practicing engineers in the air distribution industry, as well as architects, contractors, students, and anyone else interested in HVAC systems.
The journey from inception to print was enjoyable and thoroughly educational for everyone on the Handbook Team. Now that the first shipments have been sent to Reps and 10,000 personalized books will be hand-delivered to engineers across North America in June, we’d like to share a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Price Engineer’s HVAC Handbook.
Without further adieu, we give you the Lead Engineer on the Project, Julian Rimmer.
Good afternoon everyone,
We’ve shown a lot of videos on here about Price Research Center North in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, but we are also excited to show you our facilities in Suwanee, Georgia! While visiting Atlanta, Carly was lucky enough to receive a tour from James in the Atlanta Lab. James may be soft-spoken, but he certainly knows pretty much everything about the art and science of air distribution! Architects, designers, owners, engineers and anyone with an interest in air distribution can interactively learn about Price products and services in this high-tech lab – so enjoy this video tour today, and then contact us to book a tour for the near future. Certainly Carly enjoyed her tour a lot, but check out the video below to see why she ended up behind bars…
Good morning, I hope you enjoyed our very first video blog on Friday. If you missed it, check it out here. Today’s post is another video blog, also filmed in Price Research Center North, but it’s about a completely different project. Last week a couple of researchers from Berkeley University in California traveled to Winnipeg to study displacement systems in the Radiant Test Chamber. Although Dr. Bauman explains it best in the video below, the main focus of the study was to better understand how displacement systems interact with radiant systems. Although the results are still in development (an official paper based on the results is being compiled as we speak), my sources in the lab tell me that Berkeley’s findings were quite extensive. We’ll keep you updated as we hear more. For now, check out how the lab team set up the Radiant Test Chamber, and see what the research was all about:
It’s Friday already (the weeks seem to fly by here at the office) and I hope you all have great weekends lined up. For our friends, colleagues, and customers in the states – I hope you all have enjoyed your Thanksgivings and that you get to spend lots of time with family (or shopping all the Black Friday sales!).
Today’s post is our very first video blog! I think we are really starting off with a bang! We had a team of experts in from Germany to do some product testing at Price Research Center North. The team in the lab set up our cold room so that a huge glass window wall could be tested with -30 degree temperatures. The test was part of the development/construction of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which is an amazing building not only for the historic value it will have inside, but for its architecture and design:
A major challenge for the team building this new Winnipeg landmark is making sure that the glass walls can withstand a regular room temperature on one side, and -30 degree temperatures on the other side without having any problems (like condensation, frost, etc.). That’s where Price comes in! Check out the video below for more details on how we rigged up the huge glass wall!
