IHEA offers 2021 Virtual Spring Safety Standards & Codes Seminar

The Virtual Safety Standards and Codes Seminar covers critical safety information for those involved with a wide range of industrial thermprocess applications.

After the success of a series of virtual seminars last fall, the Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA) has scheduled a virtual Safety Standards & Codes Seminar for April 14-16. The seminar provides a comprehensive review of the 2019 edition of NFPA 86 Standard for ovens and furnaces. The agenda for IHEA’s virtual Safety Seminar contains vital topics that have been adapted to an online version so attendees can still get the information they need, whether they are working from home or in the office.

IHEA’s Safety Standards & Codes Seminar is designed for individuals involved in the design, manufacture, service, or operation of ovens, furnaces, kilns, dryers, thermal oxidizers, and a wide range of industrial applications. Understanding the proper use of national standards governing the compliant design and operation of ovens and furnaces is essential for everyone involved with this type of equipment.

“While we are hoping to hold our seminars in person during the fall of 2021, there is ongoing demand for virtual training now, so a decision was made to offer our popular Safety Standards & Codes Seminar again this spring,” said IHEA Executive Vice President Anne Goyer.

The three-day virtual seminar will include the following sessions presented by industry professionals who are experts in safety:

• Overview of NFPA 86 Standards for Ovens & Furnaces Including Administration, References & Definitions. Kevin Carlisle, Karl Dungs.

• General Requirements, Location and Construction. Glen Mortensen, Zurich Services Corp.

• Furnace Heating Systems Including Class B Furnace Considerations. Bryan Baesel, Honeywell Combustion Safety.

• Safety Equipment & Application Including Safety Shutoff Valves. Aaron Zoeller, SCC Inc.

• Safety Equipment & Application Including Programmable Logic Controller Systems. Bryan Baesel, Honeywell Combustion Safety.

• Class A Ovens & Furnaces and Thermal Oxidizers. Jason Safarz, Karl Dungs.

• Safety Equipment & Application with Safety Controls & Devices. Michael San Antonio, Fireye.

• Special Atmospheres for Class C Ovens & Furnaces and Quench & Molten Salt Bath. Anthony Cherol, Surface Combustion.

• Commissioning, Operations, Maintenance, Inspection & Testing. Aaron Zoeller, SCC Inc.

What former Safety seminar attendees are saying:

• “The seminar was excellent. It was very informative.”

• “Good speakers, good distinction between OEM and end user responsibility.”

The registration fee for the three-day virtual event is $295 for IHEA members and $350 for non-members and includes a printed copy of the NFPA 86 Standard for Ovens and Furnaces and a certificate of completion awarding PDHs.

Group Discount Available:  Register two or more people from the same company at the same time and save money. The first registrant pays the regular registration fee, and each additional attendee receives a $50 discount.

Calendar of events

January 25–March 7
Fundamentals of Industrial Process Heating
6-week online course beginning January 25, 2021

This course is designed to give the student a fundamental understanding of the mechanisms of heat transfer within an industrial furnace and the associated losses and the operation of a heating source either as fuel combustion or electricity. All concepts are derived mathematically with limited use of “rules of thumb.”
