Unico Donates Equipment

Michael Lindsay of Unico Inc. conducts a refrigeration training session for the sheet metal workers at the Sheet Metal Workers’ International Association (SMWIA) Local 36 Training Center.

ST. LOUIS - Unico Inc., manufacturer of a small-duct, high-velocity central heating and air conditioning system, has donated more than $10,000 worth of equipment to the Sheet Metal Workers’ International Association (SMWIA) Local 36 Training Center.

The donated equipment included a 3.5-ton blower with an advanced control board, a 3-ton UniChiller RC, round and slotted outlets, and 2-inch supply tubing. The company also sent two trainers - Michael Lindsay and Bill Brunsen - to train on refrigeration in general and demonstrate the equipment to the sheet metal workers.

Lindsay, an expert on refrigeration principles, testing, fabrication, design, and application, provided a two-hour overview of the general principles of refrigeration and how it pertains to airflow in an HVAC system.

“Unico is committed to supporting education and training within the HVAC industry,” he said. “In particular, it’s to our benefit when installers understand how our system works.”
