Harleysville, PA - Raymond J. De Hont, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Met-Pro Corporation (NYSE:MPR), announced today that the Company's Strobic Air business unit has received two international orders, totaling more than $700,000, for research laboratory fume hood exhaust systems at two premier universities. These orders are expected to ship in the third and fourth quarters of the Company's current fiscal year.
Between the two projects, Strobic Air will supply a total of 16 Tri-Stack® fans, all of which will also utilize Strobic Air's patented Acoustical Silencer Nozzle and Acoustical Windband technology. The first order includes four fans mounted on an Energy Recovery Unit, which will not only exhaust fumes from a research laboratory, but will also extract exhaust heat for heating or cooling conditioned makeup air in the laboratory, drastically reducing the laboratory's energy costs. The second order consists of three 4-fan systems mounted on custom plenums, which will exhaust fumes from a research laboratory allowing the university to meet local air quality regulations.
"These orders are an excellent example of Met-Pro's diverse portfolio of energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly solutions and products," stated De Hont. "We are excited about the market's continued interest in our industry-leading technologies and remain optimistic that we can expect more orders of this type in the future."
