VarioDuct Ceiling-Hung Fabric Duct
FabricAir introduces the VarioDuct, a highly engineered solution for most commercial building applications that provides both uniform heating and cooling out of the same ceiling-hung fabric duct. When the full-length internal membrane is positioned to block the duct’s top hemisphere vents during heating mode, the bottom hemisphere’s OriFlow orifices, NozzFlow nozzles or JetFlow jets disperse warm air down to the occupied level, regardless of ceiling height.
In cooling mode, the membrane is positioned to block the bottom hemisphere’s vents to disperse cold air through the top hemisphere’s SonicFlow or MicroFlow vents. It is available in any length and in diameters ranging from 16- to 32-in.-diameter, and can be hung with a variety of suspension systems. It saves up to 25 percent in energy costs vs. traditional metal systems.
Dual-Voltage/Dual-Frequency Solenoid Coils
Danfoss introduces a pair of new dual-voltage/dual-frequency solenoid valve coils for North America: the BT with junction box and the BU with conduit boss. They are compatible with the company’s line of EVR refrigeration duty solenoid valves. Commonly used in walk-in coolers, freezers and food retail display cases, they are also easily useful in air-conditioning applications. Each coil can operate at one of four voltage/frequency combinations: 110V/50Hz, 110–120V/60Hz, 230V/50Hz or 208–240Hz. The coils are also compatible with the Danfoss Magnetic Tool app, which can turn any Android and iOS device into a magnetic field detector.
Inverted Ducted Packaged Air-Source Heat Pump
The inverted ducted packaged air-source heat pump from Bosch offers peak efficiency and the latest compressor technology in a single unit for residential and light commercial installations. It features a SEER rating of 19, an EER of 12.5 and an HSPF of 10. The convenient two-way design allows for both horizontal and downflow installations. The system is compatible with most standard 24 VAC heat pump thermostats. The two-stage electronically commutated motor x13 blower provides enhanced dehumidification and quiet operation. The fully modulating inverter drive precisely matches the heating or cooling load for maximum efficiency.
FlexVolt 60v MAX* Cordless Pipe Threader
The FlexVolt 60V MAX* cordless pipe threader from DeWalt has a high-performance brushless motor that delivers long runtime in demanding applications. It threads up to 2-in. black iron pipe, rigid conduit and more. At 9.4 in. tall, 26.38 in. long, and 19.98 lb. (tool only), it accepts a pipe capacity of 1/2 to 2 in. It has a right-handed thread direction and its die and die head materials are made of highspeed steel and cast iron, respectively. It is equipped with the E-Clutch system, which senses the motion of the tool and shuts the tool down if necessary.
NSP-50 Condensate Neutralizing Pump
Neutra-Safe introduces the NSP-50 condensate neutralizing pump, which combines high-efficiency gas appliance condensate neutralization and condensate pumping. It is sufficient for appliances with input capacities up to 500,000 BTU/h. A transparent chamber top is provided for visual inspection of the neutralizing chamber. The cover snaps on and off for easy replacement of neutralization media, which is contained in a disposable fabric sack for quick, simple recharging. It features separate inlets for acidic condensate and nonacidic condensate. This allows the installer to use one device in place of two or more where both a gas-fired appliance and an air-conditioning unit may need to be drained.
Reconfigured M1218Air Handler
Unico reconfigured its Unico System M1218 air handler, which was formerly a single packaged unit, to match the modular nature of its larger-capacity units. It is now a separate module and even more adaptable for easy installation in tight spaces. The air-handler unit, which delivers 1 to 1.5-tons of nominal cooling, consists of various modules that are easily latched together. The modules can be arranged in vertical-up-flow, vertical-counter-flow and horizontal-flow configurations. They can be combined as heating-only, cooling-only or heating and cooling.
Yellow Jacket Adjustable Temperature Probe Strap
Ritchie Engineering Co.
Ritchie Engineering's Yellow Jacket adjustable temperature probe strap allows the user to accurately measure temperatures from -40° F to 266° F on pipe as large as 6 in. in diameter. With a 6-ft. cable length, the thermistor-style probe’s far reach can provide measurements for many applications. Made in the United States. For use with P51Titan and ManTooth families of digital manifolds.
