Vacuum Technology Seminars Offered
Graham Corp., Batavia, N.Y., offers seminars on process vacuum equipment technology. The classes are designed to assist participants in making technically and economically sound decisions when specifying, selecting, operating and troubleshooting vacuum systems. The seminars provide participating engineers with 20 professional development hours of continuing education in support of their professional registration renewal.
Hands-on training and live classroom demonstrations allow participants to experience changes in vacuum system performance as they learn about the effects of utilities or process conditions.
Topics covered include condensers, ejectors, liquid ring pumps, ejector/liquid ring systems, vacuum booster/liquid ring systems and dry pumps.
The next two-and-half-day seminar is slated for March 2003. For more information, call (585) 343-2216 or visit www.graham-mfg.com/vac.
AHR Expo 2003 Includes Process Cooling Equipment
The 2003 AHR Expo is on track to become one of the largest gatherings in the show's history when it convenes at Chicago's McCormick Place next January 27-29. Show management reports that of exhibit space has been reserved by nearly 1,200 companies, making it significantly larger than the 2002 event in Atlantic City.
Again, it will be held in conjunction with ASHRAE's winter meeting. Several process cooling-related sessions scheduled as a part of ASHRAE's technical program.
Among the highlights are sessions on thermal management of electronics, including technologies for cooling with cryogenics; refrigeration in the beverage industry; and combustion turbine inlet air cooling systems.
