YORK, Pa. - Two new laboratories - one in York, Pa., and the other in Kansas City, Kan. - will conduct research, training, and demonstrations of advanced York® air-distribution technology marketed by Johnson Controls Inc. Engineers, contractors, and end-use customers will be able to see how ductless, variable-air-volume (VAV) systems operate along with the energy, comfort, air-quality and building-churn advantages they offer.

Both Smart Environments Labs utilize a sophisticated environmental chamber, capable of simulating outdoor temperatures ranging from zero to 110°F, to determine how HVAC systems perform under a range of solar effects and outdoor temperatures.

The York, Pa., lab features the York FlexSys™ underfloor-air system using integrated Metasys® controls by Johnson Controls. The Kansas City lab features both the York FlexSys system and the York AirFixture® Dual-Airway™ overhead-air system, all with Metasys controls. Both labs are designed to demonstrate superior air distribution through the use of time-modulation VAV.

According to Timothy Irvin, product manager for AirFixture and FlexSys systems, a customer conference center adjoins the 3,000-square-foot York lab, while a customer education space is adjacent to the 1,800-square-foot Kansas City lab. Both state-of-the-art facilities are now open.

“Customers may choose to visit either facility, simply because it’s geographically closer for them. All visits, however, should be arranged through the nearest Johnson Controls branch office,” Irvin said.
