Engineering Solutions to Meet Customer Needs
One of the top priorities of our Engineering Team is to ensure that products are properly
specified and that selections work well in the overall system design. As a service to our customers,
we review specifications to bring them up to current codes as well as discuss alternative approaches
that may result in improved performance, efficiency, or cost.
To have a specification reviewed, contact us.
We are constantly involved in projects that require customized drawings, such as Krueger’s Sterilflo®
operating room particulate control system. Our Engineering team is able to provide a clear, complete
drawing package for each system that includes a reflected ceiling view, plan view, and cross section
view along with installation details. The drawing packages ensure the customer has all the necessary
information to achieve a successful project.
For curved products, such as DesignFlo®, 1900, or linear bar grilles, Krueger is able to quickly
turn around approval drawing packages, complete with the radius and arc length dimensions to verify
that the custom linear product will be built to the exact project specifications.
Developing New or Special Products for Niche Applications
Krueger understands that there are unique buildings and different situations that require
special attention, which often are only resolved through the development of new or niche products.
By understanding the requirements of the product, the limitations of the situation, and how it will
integrate with the overall air distribution system, Krueger Engineering is able to put forth their
expertise to thoroughly research and develop a product that can meet those needs.
One such example is Krueger’s KLPS Size 1 ultra low profile series fan powered terminal unit.
This product was developed in coordination with the local Krueger Representative and their customer
to solve the issue of retrofitting older buildings in Washington D.C., where the shallow ceiling plenum
between floors limited the use of other products. After research, prototypes, and testing, Krueger’s
Engineering team successfully developed a product that met the customer’s needs, which resulted in several
successful installations. The KLPS size 1 is now a standard product offering available to everyone.
Creating Revit Blocks
To achieve greater control and detail of your air distribution designs, use Krueger’s Revit Building
Information Modeling (BIM) blocks. While we offer blocks for a variety of our products, for the terminal
units specifically, our blocks are configured with unit specific information to help ensure that the
product selection corresponds to the drawing information.

Providing Application Engineering Support
The primary responsibility of our Application Engineering team is to provide technical product
support and assist in the proper selection and specification of Krueger air distribution products.
Working closely with Product Managers and Design Engineers, they aid in product development as
well as the execution of special or custom orders. They also help to resolve challenging application
opportunities, provide guidance, and are able to discuss solutions that may deliver more optimal results.
During Krueger's Institute of Technology training sessions, our
Engineering Team plays a large role in not only preparing the product demonstrations,
but also presenting material and helping develop creative, hands-on exercises that
are utilized throughout.
A large number of designers and facility managers have
been witness to custom mockups (product demonstrations) to validate critical lab performance
parameters. From laboratory modules to hospital operating rooms to vivaria,
our Engineering Team is able to provide clients with the tools to determine
the design best suited for their applications.
One of the most important functions of the Engineering Team is the
role it plays in testing our products. Under controlled conditions and
through adhering to industry standards, our Engineers generate performance data.
Through careful evaluation, publication, and training, we aim to help engineers understand
how our products will perform in real world applications.
