Wireless Hydronic Balancing Kit Receives AHR Innovation Award


Michigan City, IN, September 28, 2018 – Dwyer Instruments, Inc. was recognized for excellence in product design in the 2019 AHR Expo Innovation Awards. The contest was judged by members of ASHRAE with over 20 years of professional engineering experience. The Wireless Hydronic Balancing Kit, Series 490W, was the award winner in the Tools and Instruments product category.

Chairman of AHRI, Chris Peel, stated:

Innovation really is the life-blood of a manufacturing business. There’s a tremendous amount of investment in people, infrastructure, and products. The Innovation Awards are really a validation of your strategy, the hard work, and the investment planning that you did as a manufacturer.

Dwyer Instruments Product Manager for Test Equipment, Tom Lorenz, stated:

It’s great to be recognized for our continued innovation in the tool and instrument market. We are committed to offering the best customer experience in real-world practice and setting the bar in the HVACR industry.

The Wireless Hydronic Balancing Kit was designed by your HVAC leader to be the most accurate and easiest to operate manometer on the market.  The Series 490W measures the pressure drop across HVAC balancing valves by using wireless sensors and a versatile handheld. These sensors communicate via Bluetooth® wireless technology to an Android™ based handheld device to display pressure measurements. Users can select valves being measured from a pre-determined list, or manually enter a CV value. The handheld monitors the flow of up to three valves at one time, allowing a single operator to monitor and balance a hydronic system in less time than traditional methods.

In July the Wireless Hydronic Balancing Kit was also recognized for excellence in product design in the 15th annual Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine (The ACHR News). The 490W was the Silver Award Winner in the Electronic and Hand Tools product category.

Winning companies and their products will be honored during an awards ceremony held at the 2019 AHR Expo on Tuesday, January 15th in Atlanta, Georgia.
