If my family were a Nielsen family — those select few throughout the United States whose viewing habits determine the ratings for all television shows — my family would drive the data analysts crazy. Since adding a DVR to my home entertainment system a few years ago, I watch nothing live. (Not even Packers games!) Instead, I record anything I might want to watch and then tune in when it’s convenient for me. On-demand entertainment means I don’t have to choose between a favorite program and real-life plans such as dinner and a movie.

Process Cooling offers a DVR option too — on-demand viewing of webinars. The best part is, you don’t even have to record them yourselves! We do it for you and post them on our website. You can tune in when it is convenient for you.

I have a great program for you to sample via our on-demand content: our exclusive webinar, “Handling Ammonia Systems Safely: Practical Advice for Operators of Industrial Refrigeration Systems.” Presented John Sherrill, a training and compliance engineer at Wagner-Meinert LLC’s Tex Hildebrand Training Center, this hour-long session is filled with practical information about ammonia refrigeration. Among the topics John explains are the new safety data sheets and recommendations for first aid in the event of an ammonia exposure. (There was the new, and now there’s the new. Make sure you know what to do.)

Sherrill also explains the differences between hydraulic shock and trapped liquid. Though different phenomena, both have the potential to cause catastrophic failures — ruptured pipe, fractured valves and destroyed coils in condensers or evaporators. Sherrill explains why trapped liquid ammonia and situations where hydraulic shock could occur are so dangerous, along with tips to avoid them.

Finally, Sherrill debunks the four most common misunderstandings about ammonia processes today. Are you operating under any of these false presumptions?

  • An automated ammonia refrigeration system does not need operators.
  • The only training a facility’s operators need is on-the-job training.
  • The ammonia system is just like your refrigerator at home, and you don’t have someone watching that all the time.
  • If you don’t have 10,000 pounds or more of ammonia on site, you don’t have to worry about PSM or RMP.
