This fall IHEA will offer three concurrent technical seminars in conjunction with MTI’s Furnaces North America (FNA) in Indianapolis, Ind. Held Oct. 8-10, this will present an opportunity for manufacturers to expand their technical knowledge and spend time on the exhibit floor.

IHEA will conduct its Combustion Seminar, Safety Standards and Codes Seminar and Induction Seminar on Monday, Oct. 8 and the mornings of Tuesday, Oct. 9 and Wednesday, Oct. 10 at the Indiana Convention Center. This schedule will provide the benefit of classroom education and ample time to visit with FNA exhibitors, which include IHEA members and companies represented by IHEA seminar speakers that provide instruction during the seminars.

For nearly half a century, the Combustion Division of IHEA has delivered quality education for those in the thermal-processing industry. The Combustion Seminar will provide attendees with updated and relevant information from experts in combustion technologies. It is designed for those responsible for the operation, design, selection and/or maintenance of fuel-fired industrial process furnaces and ovens. It offers over 12 hours of instruction from industry professionals.

IHEA’s Safety Standards and Codes seminar will provide a comprehensive overview of NFPA 86, including newly released updates for many areas of safety. Sessions will cover the required uses of the American National Standards governing the compliant design and operation of ovens and furnaces. Speakers are all very involved in NFPA and serve on the technical committees. They will discuss the most recent revisions incorporated into NFPA 86.

For the past few years IHEA’s Induction Division has developed materials and worked with induction member companies to support the need for additional induction education. IHEA will offer the Induction Seminar during the fall seminar series to educate those who want to learn more about induction and its applications. The seminar will provide the basics of induction technology and how electrically powered induction technology can create heat in parts.

Attendees from all three seminars will have the advantage of a private networking reception on Monday afternoon with speakers, and they will also have an opportunity to visit with all FNA exhibitors on the trade-show floor.
