- Have you, or someone you work with, used industrial process cooling or heating equipment to solve a thermal challenge within your plant?
- Has your expertise or experience with industrial process cooling and heating equipment projects enabled you to help reduce process operating costs, improve thermal processing efficiency and increase process safety?
If so, Process Heating and Process Cooling — the world’s most-read low temperature industrial heating and cooling engineering resources — would like to recognize your innovative efforts with the inaugural Process Heating & Process Cooling Innovation Award.
Thermal processing is a key processing step in the manufacture of myriad products. It is through the effective and controlled application of process heating or cooling technologies that products ranging from plastics to chemicals to foods are manufactured. Targeted and controlled heating and cooling are the difference between a product that meets specs and one that must be scrapped.
Yet, many process applications have unique parameters that preclude the simple application of an off-the-shelf product. It is at the intersection of thermal processing equipment capabilities, process requirements, and plant and process application limitations that thermal processing innovation often is born.
Nominations for the inaugural Innovation Award will be accepted until April 15. Nominate yourself, a colleague or even your company. Anyone who has solved process cooling and heating challenges innovatively within your realm is eligible. The award will recognize the innovative application of technical expertise, or experience with industrial process heating and cooling equipment, projects or efforts, to reduce costs, improve thermal processing efficiency and increase safety.
The winner of the first annual Process Heating & Cooling Innovation Award will be announced at the Process Heating & Cooling Show, which will be held June 15-16, in Chicago. Learn more about the show at heatingcoolingshow.com.
The award recipient (person or company) will receive recognition in Process Cooling and Process Heating magazines, websites and enewletters, as well as a plaque. In addition, Process Heating and Process Cooling will make a one-time $1,000 scholarship donation in the winner’s name to the engineering school of the winner’s choice.
