Due to a delay in the release of the newly revised NFPA Standard 86, the Industrial Heating Equipment Association has rescheduled its Safety Standards and Codes Seminar. The two-day event now will be held March 7 and 8, 2011, at the Hilton Garden Inn O’Hare in Des Plaines, Ill.

“I felt it was best to postpone the seminar until the spring of 2011 because speakers need sufficient time to review the latest revisions and develop their presentations accordingly,” says Ted Jablkowski, chairman of the organization’s safety standards and codes committee.

The seminar will review the NFPA 86 standard for ovens and furnaces, highlighting the technical changes and clarifications of the latest edition. The new handbook will be included as part of each attendee’s registration materials.

In addition, the seminar will cover the following: location and construction, furnace heating systems, commissioning, operations, maintenance, inspection, testing and safety equipment application. Course work also will include thermal oxidizers, Class A (flammable volatiles or combustible materials) furnaces, Class B (no flammable volatiles or combustible materials) furnaces, Class C (special atmospheres) furnaces, Class D (vacuum) furnaces, loss prevention and product liability.
