Explosions and fires in industrial heating systems can result in injury, loss of life, loss of property and loss of production. Understanding the required use of the national standards governing the compliant design and operation of ovens and furnaces is essential for everyone involved with this type of equipment.

IHEA's Safety Standards Seminar, planned for March 6 -7, at the Hilton Garden Inn O'Hare in Des Plaines, Ill., will provide a comprehensive review on the new edition of NFPA 86, including updated requirements for:
  • Class A, B and C furnaces.
  • Safety shutoff valves.
  • Multiple burner systems.
  • Purge and restart.
  • Calculation methods for the lower flammability limt (LFL).
  • PLC-based burner management system.
If you are involved in the operation, service, manufacture or design of ovens, kilns, furnaces, dryers or thermal oxidizers, this class will benefit you.

The registration fee is $700 for IHEA members and $800 for nonmembers. To register or for more information, visit http://ihea.org/SafetySeminar.cfm.
