2 PHC 0323 Continuing Education

1. Using Your Equipment Data to Improve Process Heating

The intersection formed via the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), digitalization and technology such as advanced analytics allows manufacturers to leverage time-series and contextual data for process insights. Eliminating data silos and incorporating contextual data with process data enhances operational understanding and transparency. In addition, The inclusion of IIoT on thermal processing equipment allows equipment issues to be recognized and diagnosed in real time. Such insights allow processors to plan more effectively for necessary repairs and maintenance during upcoming, scheduled downtime.

4. The Magic of Chillers

Chillers are used in many applications where chilled liquid is circulated through process equipment. This course will look at different types of chillers used to cool materials, products and machinery, including portable chillers and designs used in 3D printing to cool lasers. It also will explore how some portable chillers use variable-speed compressor technology to provide better efficiency.
