Industrial HVAC technologies and applications
- COURSE OUTLINE
- SPEAKER BIO(S)
As a result of this course, you will be able to:
- Describe new industrial HVAC technologies and applications.
- Discuss ventilation control systems and the necessity for improved indoor air quality.
- Discuss boiler types and their best applications for both heating and process loads.
- Recognize which technologies heat, cool and ventilate industrial facilities most efficiently.
Who should attend?
Mechanical engineers, design and build contractors, facility engineers and managers, energy managers, plant supervisors and operators, general maintenance staff and anyone with interest in best practices for industrial space heating, cooling and dehumidification.
Large spaces typically require multifaceted HVAC solutions. Those solutions start with a solid understanding of the best technologies available on the market today, where they make the most sense and how they can enhance HVAC system performance and process boiler operations. Join us this fall for an in-depth discussion of industrial space conditioning and process boiler selection criteria. We’ll review and compare technology features, benefits and best applications.

“I never realized how much the boiler meant to the operation of our facility until it went down unexpectedly and the building went cold and the production process stopped. We lost thousands!”
Steve’s background includes more than 50 years of experience in the steam and hot water generating field spanning a broad scope of disciplines including engineering, service, boiler room operation training and field application sales. A frequent speaker and publisher of several articles concerning boiler design, efficiency, application and safe operation; he offers a vast experience level and down to earth delivery style. He strives to provoke new insights and a better understanding of the dynamics of heat transfer and the many ways to enhance fuel conservation and boiler safety.
Steve recently held the position of director of training and marketing services for Cleaver Brooks Company. He holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
