Bell & Gossett celebrates 100 years at 2016 AHR Expo
Bell & Gossett will celebrate 100 years of engineering commercial HVAC and plumbing products at the 2016 AHR Expo, Jan. 25-27, in Orlando, FL.
“For 100 years, Bell & Gossett has been a leader in efficiency, education, and system expertise,” said Mark Handzel, vice president of product regulatory affairs and director of HVAC commercial buildings. “While the industry’s landscape has changed over the years, Bell & Gossett continues to focus on helping our customers achieve higher energy efficiency and decrease costs. As we look ahead to the next century, we will continue providing high-quality products, offering world-class training, and serving as a thought leader on industry trends.”
In line with its focus on greater efficiency, the Xylem booth will feature B&G’s POWER OF e product portfolio, including the newly launched Series e-80 inline pump and the award-winning ecocirc® XL large wet rotor circulator pump.
The company says its POWER OF e platform emphasizes the dedication B&G places on reducing building energy consumption. The “efficiency island” concept is a critical element of the POWER OF e, highlighting Xylem’s design for improved overall system energy savings over a range of operating conditions.
Officials at the B&G booth will also discuss The Little Red Schoolhouse. Located in Morton Grove, IL, the program has been educating the industry for more than 60 years with its hands-on hydronic system training. The newest course, offered through B&G’s Online Little Red Schoolhouse, features four modules about waterside economization and 22 modules on centrifugal pumps and piping system basics.
The free program enables engineers, wholesalers, and contractors in the HVAC industry to access the training from a computer, tablet, or any mobile device via a dedicated learning app. The online courses reach a global audience and qualify for continuing education credits.

“It’s critical for our industry to have a strong, practical knowledge of HVAC and plumbing systems and how all the various components work together to create the highest efficiencies. This is one reason we’ve invested so much in our one-of-a-kind, systems-based training approach. We are proud to continue that commitment by expanding the Online Little Red Schoolhouse offerings,” said Handzel. “The web-based training system meets the needs of our changing workforce demographic by providing flexibility and greater accessibility for those who are seeking continuing education opportunities.”
