National Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) donated $10,000 to ASHRAE research at the 2013 NEBB Annual Conference in Montreal. Stan Fleischer, president, NEBB, handed the check to Tim Wentz, vice president, ASHRAE, at the opening session of the 2013 NEBB Annual Conference, continuing the long tradition of NEBB’s support for ASHRAE research.
NEBB’s donation will help fund research projects 1245-RP 7.07 69,808 “Determine the Effects of Duct Fittings on Air Velocity Measurements,” Kansas State University – Manhattan, Kan., and “Measuring Air-tightness of Mid- and High-Rise Nonresidential Buildings.”
NEBB’s donation will help ASHRAE’s research to further high-performance HVACR technologies which result in improved standards and guidelines.
ASHRAE Golden Circle is made up of investors who contributed $10,000 or more to ASHRAE research. Golden Circle investors contributed more than 10 percent of the total amount of funds collected for research. Universities and other private enterprises conduct these research programs, and the findings are used to update ASHRAE’s standards and guidelines. ASHRAE’s guidelines then serve as a benchmark and help educate and promote uniform testing, ratings, and safe practices throughout the entire HVACR industry.
