Carrier Contribution Supports Industry Research At Purdue University's New Ray W. Herrick Laboratories

INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In keeping with its commitment to innovation and environmental responsibility, Carrier is proud to be a part of Purdue University's newly expanded heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) and refrigeration research facilities at Ray W. Herrick Laboratories. The company's recent contribution of a custom air-handling system and five years of engineering expertise will support the university's research including that conducted in Herrick's new Willis Carrier Laboratory, which will be used to advance the energy efficiency of HVAC and refrigeration equipment. Carrier, the world's leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

"As a company founded on innovation, we have a strong, natural desire to support the next generation of innovators," said John Mandyck, chief sustainability officer, UTC Building & Industrial Systems. " Willis Carrier was just 25 years old when he invented modern air conditioning. We know some of the best ideas come from bright, young minds so we are excited to see how Purdue's student researchers will positively impact our industry."

Carrier's contribution of 15 feature-rich custom air handling units rounds out an existing lineup of high-quality Carrier units already in operation at Purdue. The units add to the university's overall system, which includes cooling from Carrier chillers in the university's central plant.   

Carrier's relationship with Purdue extends to also include recent research collaborations. Under a program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, researchers at Herrick Laboratories joined with engineers at Carrier in Indianapolis to develop technologies designed to improve heat pump efficiency in cold climates. United Technologies' corporate research center is also collaborating with Herrick researchers on the development and evaluation of advanced building controls and diagnostics solutions under the Department of Energy's Energy Efficient Buildings HUB.

Since 2005, Carrier has donated more than $3 million to U.S. universities to support research, engineering and scholarship programs. For more information on Carrier and its sustainability initiatives, visit www.NaturalLeader.com or follow Carrier on Twitter: @CarrierGreen.
