CIPHEX West wows the crowds again

November 16, 2018

CIPHEX West, Western Canada’s largest heating and plumbing trade show, again lived up to expectations in Calgary on November 7 and 8, with thousands of visitors strolling the 30,000 sq. ft. of event space featuring products from hundreds of manufacturers.

Despite the chill outside, attendees flooded the aisles to ask questions of product experts and watch demonstrations. For those keen to learn more, the CIPHEX theatre was the big draw, where top industry speakers from across North America provided hours of education and advice on topics ranging from snow melting systems to the plumbing code.

Once again, however, it was the New Products Showcase that generated the most buzz, culminating with the selection of the eight category winners by the judging panel at the end of the show’s first day.

The winners were:

Air Conditioning and Refrigeration: Hi-Velocity/Energy Saving Products for the ESP Series Variable Speed Heat Pump.

Controls and Instrumentation: HeatLink for the Smart System.

Heating and Ventilation: Grundfos for the Grundfos MLE motor.

Hydronic Heating: Flexcon Industries/Springer Sales for the Argosy Buffer Tank.

Kitchen and Bath: Spectrum Brands for the Pfister Deckard 2-Hole Roman Tub Filler.

Plumbing and Piping: Taco Comfort Solutions for the Hot-Link Plus-e.

Tools and Equipment: SpeedClean for the Dry Steam Coil and Surface Cleaner.

Water Treatment: Cannature Water Group for the Aqua Flo High Efficiency Reverse Osmosis (HERO).

The next edition of CIPHEX West will be staged at the Pacific National Exhibition – Coliseum in Vancouver, B.C., in November 2020.
