AHRI, the Air-conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute selected Daryl Erbs, director of advanced engineering for Manitowoc Foodservice, as the 2009 recipient of the Richard C. Schulze Award. The award is given in recognition of distinguished service and commitment to AHRI and the industry’s goals and objectives. Award recipients are selected by their industry colleagues.
Erbs was honored for his years of dedicated service and expertise on behalf of the industry, particularly for his active participation as a member of the Commercial Refrigerator Manufacturers Section and the Research and Technology Committee. In addition, Erbs was essential to the development of AHRI Standard 1250 for performance of walk-in coolers and freezers which now serves as the basis for the Department of Energy’s (DOE) federal test procedures for those products.
