NARSA Conference Covers Wide Range of Opportunities for Heavy Duty Heat Exchange

BUFFALO, NY –  Engine and engine cooling plant tours, chillers, coils, tube and shell, aluminum heat exchange technology all will be covered at the 2017 NARSA Heavy Duty Heating and Cooling Conference here at the Embassy Suites hotel September 21 to 23.  The 2017 NARSA HD Heating and Cooling Conference September 21 to 23 has been fine tuned to provide more networking time and a more relaxed schedule. 

Thursday, September 21 Tours

The group will travel to Jamestown to tour the Cummins Engine Plant and the TitanX Engine Cooling Plant.  For spouses and guests who may not want to take the industry tours, there will also be a group sight-seeing tour to Niagara Region attractions.

TitanX Engine Cooling will open its world-class production facility to provide a peak into the world of engine cooling product production.  Included in the tour will be a special technical program entitled What Does Durability Testing Tell the Radiator Shop?  The scope of this technical session is to show the radiator shop technician how the results from durability testing – pressure cycle, thermal cycle & vibration – can help them to better identify the root cause of a customer’s failed radiator or CAC.  Just replacing a failed unit with a new one will certainly ‘fix’ the immediate problem.  

But what if the failure was a result of vibration inputs caused from a worn out isolator?  By looking at what elements fail in a bench test, it can help guide the technician in identifying the ‘real’ problem and not only sell a new heat exchanger but also allow them the opportunity to fix and bill for additional work.

The Cummins Engine plant is one of the largest production facilities of its type in the world. Cummins builds more than 400 engines per day here.  Thousands of different engine configurations are built. Engine families include ISX 15, ISX12, and the ISM.  These engines are used in numerous applications including: line-haul trucks, RVs, vocational trucks, off-highway, construction, agriculture and marine. More than 1,500 people are employed at the 1 million sq. ft. facility.

To provide a less stressing Thursday, the table top reception has been moved to Friday. The 2017 The NARSA HD Heating and Cooling Conference has been fine tuned to provide more networking time and a more relaxed schedule. Thursday activities begin when the buses leave the hotel at 8:00 a.m. and the formal schedule will conclude by 4 p.m. when buses return to the Embassy Suites Buffalo.  This will take the pressure off and allow members and guests to network and enjoy the city.

Friday, September 22 Sessions and Table Tops

Friday morning features educational sessions at the hotel, a luncheon, and more afternoon sessions.

Sessions will be on tube and shell, chillers and coils, aluminum cores, and fin technology.  A highlight will be rare insight in the market and market dynamics with TitanX’s View of the IAM Market.   In this session, TitanX uses input from several IAM market specialists as well as their own experience to provide an overview of a somewhat complex arena. We will be discussing areas including why does an end-user buy what he/she does and from whom?

Included in the presentation will be identifying the various levels of the IAM value stream; what share of the aftermarket goes to the OEM’s service organizations versus the traditional WD, etc.  From the data we can also draw some conclusions on where the IAM market may be in 5-10 years. The table-top reception will take place on Friday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and will feature displays of HD products, tools and services as well as food and refreshments.              

Saturday, September 23 Certificate Programs

Certificate programs and testing will take place on Saturday morning. 

The Conference Hotel is the Embassy Suites Buffalo and room rates are $142 per night plus taxes. Valet parking is available for $12 per night. Breakfast is served daily from 6a.m. - 9:30a.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday and Sunday from 7a.m. -10:30 a.m. includes scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, cold and hot cereal, made to order omelets, French toast, pastries, Danish, muffins, bagels and beverages

Industry Supports 2017 NARSA Spring Conference

A new meeting format for the Spring Conference in Dallas this past weekend was tested and succeeded. Combining a management/owner oriented meeting on Friday and a technical skills centered session on Saturday provided a great mix of opportunities to learn.  

The Spring Conference 2017 – was a refinement of the 2016 Management Conference which began last year as a replacement to the Ed/Techs. The Spring Conference was redesigned and it provided sessions for business owners and managers at a hotel and a workplace-based program at the ROCORE Dallas Plant with focus on information for employees. This hybrid meeting model offered another unique and valued educational opportunity for members and their employees.

American Associations Day PDF Print Email

The Power of A

Today (March 15/), we celebrate American Associations Day by showcasing how in every industry, state and sector, associations strengthen lives, the economy, jobs, safety and security – and much more. 

NARSA - The International Heat Transfer Association, thanks you (our members) today on American Associations Day, for all you do to make America stronger, safer and a better place to live. NARSA makes America stronger by providing a focus for the business of thermal management for transportation and industry by providing commercial and technical forums that lead to business development, product innovation, and much more. 

Associations make America stronger. In virtually every industry and sector, associations advance workers’ job skills and create new employment opportunities. Associations implement programs and impact policies that strengthen America’s safety and security – on roadways, waterways, jobsites, the Internet and everywhere in-between.

Association members (NARSA members) are at the forefront of service innovation and facilitate domestic and international commerce. And, there is no other segment of society that improves lives like associations do – from creating industry standards of quality and safety, to providing disaster relief, to offering expertise that creates better policy – and so much more.

We call it the Power of A.

The Power of Associations

- Article from ASAE (American Society of Association Executives) 

Associations make broad contributions to American life. They are an essential piece of our national, state, and local economies. They create jobs in every state. Their measurable economic benefits include more than 1.3 million jobs for Americans and a total payroll of nearly $51 billion. Beyond their economic impact, however, are vital roles in educating the nation’s workforce, and developing voluntary industry standards to keep families safe. They illustrate how America works best when we work together.

Advancing the Workforce

Each year, associations provide millions of American workers across every industry and state with critical post-college skills training required for professional success and career advancement.  Associations proactively and purposefully create centralized training programs, certifications and standards to ensure individuals, industries and society-at-large benefit from a strong and vibrant workforce. 

  • 57 million adults in America take formal work-related courses or training each year, and more than 69 percent of those individuals receive those training courses from either a private business or a professional association.
  • In total, associations account for more than 315,000 meetings held in the U.S. each year, with 59.5 million participants in attendance.
  • Most associations (88 percent), regardless of type or size, report sponsoring an annual meeting or exhibition, with a median attendance of 803 registrants.

Setting Product Safety and Technical Standards

Associations develop product safety and technical standards that impact consumers every day. From the mattresses we sleep on to the food that we put on our dinner tables, standard-setting in the U.S. has historically been a process driven by the private sector, with the federal government in a supporting role.
