The aisles were humming at this year’s AHR Expo, held January 22 to 24 at McCormick Place in Chicago as visitors checked out the latest products and technologies on offer from more than 2,100 exhibiting firms.

Among the newer technologies on display were oil-free compressors that make use of magnetic bearings, pumps equipped with robust control panels, and boilers designed to simplify the setup and commissioning of equipment and heating systems.

The event also included a number of seminars and award presentations.

Top prize winners in the AHR Expo Innovation Awards competition included Setra Systems, Emerson, Danfoss, Calefactio, Spartan Bioscience, AquaMotion, Chemours, Regal, Fluke and Triatek.

A special ceremony was held to announce that Uponor’s Ingrid Mattson is the newest recipient of the Carlson-Holohan Industry Award of Excellence.

AHR Expo 2019 will take place January 14-16 in Atlanta, Ga.
