An ammonia safety training day and a combustion safety workshop are among the educational offerings of the 2023 Process Heating & Cooling Show. 

The show, which will be held on May 24-25 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill., will include training provided by leading organizations — the Ammonia Safety & Training Institute, the Industrial Heating Equipment Association, and the Air Movement and Control Association International — as a part of the conference program. 

On Tuesday, May 23, the Industrial Heating Equipment Association will offer its combustion safety seminar as a pre-conference workshop. Topics to be covered include fundamentals of combustion, burners and nozzles, practical fluid flow and piping practices, combustion safety systems, flame safety and sequence control. Registration in the IHEA course also includes full conference registration for the Process Heating & Cooling Show. 

On Wednesday, May 24, the Ammonia Safety & Training Institute (ASTI) will host an eight-hour Ammonia Safety Day in partnership with Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA); IIAR, the world's leading advocate for the safe, reliable and efficient use of ammonia and other natural refrigerants; and Refrigerating Engineers & Technicians Association (RETA). This conference-style presentation is a free safety conference designed with the end-user, the firefighter, and the regulator in mind. 

This course will be the first Ammonia Safety Day in Chicago since 2019, and through it, ASTI will provide safety management support through the effective use of prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery (PMPRR) training. All courses meet OSHA standards.

The Air Movement and Control Association International will offer three courses during the Process Heating & Cooling Show, and on Thursday, May, their course will include a demonstration of a replica industrial environment. AMCA is one of the most highly regarded international, not-for-profit organizations in the air movement and control industry. 

In addition to these courses, The Process Heating & Cooling Show will offer several continuing education sessions where attendees can get continuing education credits, from PDH, RETA PDH, AIA and IACET, and gain insights into groundbreaking information related to new technologies, materials, products, trends or applications for process heating or process cooling systems. The sessions offering credits include:

  • 5 Best Practices for Energy Baselining presented by Charles Tuck, Ndustrial
  • Decarbonization Process: Heat Pumps Utilizing Hydrocarbons and CO2, presented by Matteo Iobbi, Frascold USA
  • CO2 Chillers for Process Cooling Applications: Performance Comparison with HFC/Os, Other Natural Refrigerants and Relevant Field Experience presented by Giacomo Pisano, Dorin USA
  • Improve Freezing Performance and Quality with Companion Cryogenic Systems, presented by Chris Johnson, Linde
  • Beyond Freon: A Closer Look at the Next Generation Refrigerants, presented by Jeff Warther, Chemour Refrigerants
  • Approaching Zero: Managing Cooling Water Discharge presented by Tonya Chandler, BioLargo, Inc. and Kelle Zeiher, Garratt-Callahan.
