    If the AHs are constatnt volume, use the mechanical suction unloader plate, not the electrical unloaders.

    If a chiller or VAV AH, use electrical unloaders w/ discharge water/air controller.

    Cisco/Richard Zeta Control??

    Any word on the former Cisco/Richard Zeta controls?

    No news on RZ controls, RZ seemed to have disappeared after Cisco closed down that division. Thought Ed Richardson might try to buy RZ back.

    Sounds like your local rebuilder did an aerosol overhaul on it, and never really rebuild it.
