This fall the Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA) will offer three concurrent technical seminars in conjunction with the Metal Treating Institute’s (MTI) Furnaces North America (FNA) in Indianapolis, IN from October 8 – 10, 2018.  This will be the perfect opportunity for manufacturers to expand their technical knowledge as well as spend time on the FNA exhibit floor.

IHEA will conduct its Combustion Seminar, Safety Standards and Codes Seminar and Induction Seminar throughout the week.  The Combustion Seminar and the Safety Standards & Codes Seminar will be held all day Monday, October 8th and on the mornings of Tuesday, October 9th and Wednesday, October 10th at the Indiana Convention Center.  The Induction Seminar will be held on Tuesday morning, October 9th.  This schedule provides attendees the benefit of classroom education and allows ample time to visit with FNA exhibitors, including IHEA members and companies represented by IHEA seminar speakers.

For nearly half a century, the Combustion Division of IHEA has delivered quality education for those in the thermal heat processing industry.  IHEA’s 49th Combustion Seminar will provide attendees with updated and relevant information from experts in combustion technologies.  The seminar is designed for those responsible for the operation, design, selection and/or maintenance of fuel-fired industrial process furnaces and ovens.  With over twelve hours of instruction from manufacturing professionals, attendees will learn from the best in the industry.

IHEA’s popular Safety Standards and Codes seminar will provide a comprehensive overview of the 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 that are 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 and provide further knowledge on its applications.  The Induction Seminar will offer the basics of induction technology and how the electrically powered induction technology can create heat in parts, up to and including melting metals.

Seminar attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy the FNA opening reception on Monday evening and visit with speakers and exhibitors.  Attendees can also visit the FNA show floor for the remainder of the week.

The IHEA seminar series and speakers always receive high marks on evaluations.  Attendees often comment positively on the knowledgeable speakers and great examples provided that they can apply to their processes.  A few remarks from former students: “PowerPoint slides were very informative, and I appreciate the “extra” information from the speakers instead of just reading the slides;” “Very impressed all around.  Great job by all the speakers;” and “Excellent seminar for someone new to combustion.”

Mark your calendar now and plan to attend one of IHEA’s Fall Seminars from Oct. 8-10 in Indianapolis during Furnaces North America.  Registration will open in May.
