Study Looks at Displacement Ventilation’s Effect on Airborne Particulates

Stratified air systems are widely known for their ability to condition a variety of spaces in an energy-efficient way. Beyond providing energy savings, however, these systems can also improve indoor air quality.

How Do VAV Diffusers Work?

Posted by Price Industries on November 29, 2022 at 9:00 AM

Exploring the Inner Workings of Mechanical VAV Diffusers

In a previous blog post, we discussed variable air volume (VAV) diffusers and how these simple devices create small-zone comfort. VAV diffusers are available in two basic types: mechanical (thermal) and digital (electric). In this post, we take a closer look at the mechanical version, which requires no electrical or pneumatic connections and is powered by the temperature of the air.

Inside Price: The Golspie North Facility

Posted by Price Industries on November 8, 2022 at 10:00 AM

More Space, More Capacity and a World-Class Paint Line

In the summer of 2021, Price’s Golspie North manufacturing facility in Winnipeg, MB, completed a massive expansion. Measuring 130,000 square feet (108,000 square feet of which is dedicated manufacturing space), the Golspie North project is the largest expansion to be completed on the Winnipeg campus. The additional space dramatically increased manufacturing and surge capacity for the Critical Environments product group and PARC, Price’s architectural ceilings business.

What Is an Acoustic Panel?

Posted by Price Industries on October 25, 2022 at 9:25 AM

Controlling Unwanted Noise from the Source to the Receiver

An acoustic panel is one of many names that describe a modular component used to block or absorb noise where it’s unwanted. Also known as a double-walled panel, sandwich panel, insulated panel, thermal panel, double-walled ductwork or plenum wall, this engineered building element contains or reduces sound energy at different stages along the path that sound travels from the source to the receiver.

Using High-Induction Diffusers to Improve Air Quality

Posted by Mike Koupriyanov on September 27, 2022 at 9:18 AM

A CFD Classroom Case Study

Obtaining efficient ventilation with overhead mixing systems for applications in heating climates can be a challenge. Not only does the positive buoyancy of the supply air work against the air distribution system, but most overhead mixing systems are designed with low supply air volumes (relative to cooling) and high supply air temperatures (more than 15°F above room temperature).
