Continuing Education to Offer FAN System Assessment Training

Penn State Greater Allegheny is offering the U.S.Department of Energy (DOE) best practices workshop on Fan System Assessments.The one day Workshop will be held on Thursday, Februaruy 28, 2008 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Frable Building on campus.

The workshop highlights the benefits of fan system optimization and will be an introduction of DOE's Fan System Assessment Tool (FSAT). This powerful analysis software helps quantify the potential benefits of optimizing fan system configurations that serve industrial processes.  FSAT is simple and quick, and requires only basic information about fans and the motors that drive them. With FSAT, you can calculate the amount of energy used by your fan system; determine system efficiency; and quantify the savings potential of an upgraded system.

The instructor is Bill Hunter, PE, President of AirClean Technologies, Inc. located in Seattle, WA. His engineering and equipment supply business helps industrial plants increase profitability by making more effective use of their fan and plant systems. Hunter has over 12 years experience in designing, analyzing, specializing industrial energy systems.

The fee for the workshop is $50 which includes a continental breakfast and lunch. Early registration is encouraged space is limited. Checks and purchase orders should be made payable to Penn State Greater Allegheny or register on line at Continuing Education.  For questions or additional information, contact Melanie Brletic at 412 675-9040 or via e-mail at [email protected].
