Infrared, Combustion Training Focuses of Fall Meetings
September 24, 2008
Fall brings a return of the Industrial Heating Equipment Association’s (IHEA) one-day seminar on infrared heating processes, its popular annual combustion seminar, and the group’s Fall Business Conference. This year’s events have been scheduled for November 10-12 at the Omni Charlotte in Charlotte, N.C.
IHEA’s Infrared Equipment Division (IRED) will hold its popular one-day seminar on infrared heating processes on November 10. The seminar will review the basics of infrared, including what it is, how it is produced and its characteristics. Other session topics include the equipment sources of infrared and a discussion of the variety of infrared applications. The applications-focused topics will demonstrate the many ways in which infrared can be utilized in industrial processing. Infrared seminar attendees also will receive IRED’s “Infrared Process Heating Handbook.”
Long an industry fixture in combustion education, IHEA’s 39th annual combustion seminar will be held November 10-11. The two-day event consists of sixteen sessions that discuss topics such as air-gas premixing, burners, controls, flame supervision, gas flow measurement, metering, NOX and process applications. It is intended for persons responsible for the operation, design, selection and maintenance of fuel-fired industrial process furnace and ovens.
Attendees of both the infrared and combustion seminars can meet with session speakers, equipment suppliers and other industry experts at a tabletop exhibition and reception on November 10. The evening event offers attendees an opportunity to speak with company representatives and learn more about the products and services discussed in their classroom environment.
Finally, IHEA will hold its Fall Business Conference on November 12, also at the Omni Charlotte. The one-day meeting consists of organization-related committee meetings and business presentations.
