Mechanical 13 - HVAC Coil Loading Solution
Student Team: Robert Bohannon, Ryan Leahy, Cameron Mitchell, Ryan Silver
Advisor: Jeff Nolting
Sponsoring Organization: Haakon Industries, Ltd.
Liaison: Frank Ryan
Haakon Industries builds air handling units for use ranging from general, to maintaining cleanrooms and food processing areas. Depending on the size of the unit, heating and cooling coils weighing up to 3,000lbs each must be installed by hand. Currently, these large coils must be pushed into place, which places both the workers and product at risk. Haakon Industries has tasked ME-13 with designing and building a mechanism which will install the heating and cooling coils quickly and safely, eliminating the chance for possible injury to workers, and damage to the product.
