Production and process engineers seeking training on combustion-related equipment and electrotechnologies should consider a trip to Indianapolis for seminars planned by the Industrial Heating Equipment Association.

Planned for October 21-22 at the Conrad Hotel in Indianapolis, the electrotechnologies seminar will consist of two full days of instruction composed of several general sessions for all attendees and two targeted tracks. General-session topics include an electrotechnologies overview, industrial energy efficiency, working with your electrical utility and a question-and-answer panel discussion. In addition, attendees can choose between two concurrent tracks:

  • Track One: Electrotechnologies for Drying, Curing, and Finishing. Topics include infrared, ultraviolet, radio-frequency, microwave, electron beam, plasma and industrial heat pumps.
  • Track Two: Electrotechnologies for Processing Metals. Topics Include induction melting, induction hardening, electrical resistance heating, heat treating, electric arc melting, salt brazing, isothermal melting and vacuum carburizing.

Also scheduled for October 21-22, IHEA will host its 44th annual combustion seminar. The seminar is designed to those responsible for the operation, design, selection and maintenance of fuel-fired industrial process furnace and ovens. The two-day combustion seminar consists of 18 sessions on topics such as air-gas premixing, burners, controls, flame supervision, gas flow measurement, infrared heating, metering and troubleshooting.

A joint electrotechnologies-combustion tabletop exhibition and reception will offer attendees the opportunity to speak with company representatives and learn more about the products and services discussed in the classroom.
