ASHRAE® Long Island
Thank you Don Kane for helping set up the Sysco distributed warehouse factory tour. It was a very impressive
facility that used some great technologies to make it efficient and safe working environment. Not every day you get to see hydrogen fuel cells in operation. We also had the local chapter of Refrigeration Service Eng- ineers Society (RSES) join us for this tour, it was great to meet some new people that are working in our industry.
It is interesting to note that the refrigeration plant was using Ammonia that has been in use for a long time and leads well into this month’s presentation. We are fortunate to have an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer visiting us, Professor Eckhard A. Groll, Dr. Eng. He will be presenting on Refrigerants, Past, Present and Future. We have come a long way regarding refrigerants and phasing out CFC and I look forward to hearing more about this topic.
I know a lot of you will be attending out annual golf outing this month it is a great event and always a good time. It is also a great networking opportunity so I hope you get to take advantage of this event. It is an important event for the chapter as we can generate some funds and we are able to support our Research Promotion goal for society. I look forward to seeing you there.
Don’t forget to visit the ASHRAE web page for updates on events and activities. There is a lot of great information available from meeting announcements, career opportunities, and updates on standards. If you are interested in getting involved on a local level please speak to one of our board members we are always looking for help and welcome
any comments or questions.
I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting and thank you for your continued support.
