The Industrial Refrigeration Consortium will host its 2015 Research and Technology Forum on May 6-7 in Madison, Wis. This year’s event will include technical sessions covering topics:

  • Welding for piping and vessels.
  • Compressor oil and oil analysis.
  • Mechanical integrity.
  • Views from around the industry.
  • Ice cream production.
  • OSHA update and review of industry accidents and incidents.
  • Emergency planning and response.

In addition, attendees will tour a nearby dairy plant, and the winners of the Amazing Race — the University of Wisconsin’s sweet scientists, Maya Warren and Amy DeJong — will speak at a lunchtime presentation.
