Selecting Air Outlets for MRI Applications

Posted by Price Industries on June 13, 2023 at 9:00 AM

The Engineer’s Guide to MRI-Compatible Products

When it comes to selecting air inlets and outlets, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) rooms need special consideration due to the unique equipment found in the room. MRI rooms, often referred to as magnet rooms, contain MRI machines that use powerful magnets to produce pictures of anatomy and physiological processes of the body. These magnets create a magnetic field, which makes the material choice of air inlets and outlets a key factor in the design of the air distribution system.

Renovated, Expanded Space Creates a Living Showroom

We are continually adding talented individuals to the Price team, and in 2018 it was clear that our office space at our headquarters in Winnipeg, MB, was bursting at the seams. Team members were sharing offices, working in hallways and competing for meeting room space. Plans for the expansion of the Golspie North production space were already underway, and it seemed like the perfect time to expand and renovate our offices.

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.

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).

Accentuate and Integrate with Color and Finishes

Posted by Price Industries on March 15, 2022 at 10:09 AM

Unlimited Options for Your Design

In this blog series, we’re discussing how to achieve excellent indoor air quality without sacrificing the aesthetics of a space. Part one of the series looked at how long, continuous lengths of linear slot diffusers can integrate overhead mixed air distribution into highly architectural spaces, and part two dug deeper into the border style options available to achieve the desired appearance for a wide variety of applications.
