DALLAS – Ten educational institutions in Canada and the United States received air quality test instruments donated by Fluke Corp. The presentation was made to the selected schools on the opening day of the 2007 International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo).

Each winning school was presented with two of the company’s 975 AirMeter™ Testers, for use in training HVACR students. The selected schools were California Polytechnic State University (San Luis Obispo, Calif.); Clarkson University (Potsdam, N.Y.); Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago); Linn State Technical College (Linn, Mo.); Perry Technical Institute (Yakima, Wash.); Purdue University (West Lafayette, Ind.); Seattle Area Pipetrades Education Center (Renton, Wash.); SAIT Polytechnic (Calgary, Alberta, Canada); Sheet Metal Workers Local 265 JATC (Carol Stream, Ill.); and University of Texas School of Public Health (Houston).

“Training programs in industrial hygiene and HVAC technology are in A+ shape,” said Mark Price, head of the Fluke Indoor Air Diagnostics business unit. “We were extremely impressed by the quality and depth of these programs. These advanced test instruments will help make them even better.”

Fluke also introduced its equipment loan program, created to give IAQ students the latest in test tools and instruments. Fluke promised to send applicants a container packed with a variety of IAQ test instruments for classroom and laboratory use. At the end of the two-week loan period, the instructor is supposed to ship the equipment to another school. Each package - called an IAQ Hands-on Training or “HOT” tub - contains five Fluke 975 AirMeters™, five Fluke 922 air flow meters, a Fluke 983 particle counter, and a PowerPoint-based lecture.

To access the Equipment Loan Program, instructors must register for the Fluke Education Partnership Program at
