On April 6, 2007, at Mohawk Valley Community College, Utica, NY, PM Engineer contributing writer John Siegenthaler, P.E., will present a seminar for heating professionals who want to expand their knowledge of hydronic system design using the latest materials and methods available. Attendees will learn techniques that go beyond mainstream design practices and approaches that reduce cost and enhance performance.

They’ll also receive a detailed seminar manual, along with powerful design software that lets them quickly evaluate the “what if” questions associated with routine system design. This software will be demonstrated during the seminar.

The seminar will last from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with lunch and breaks provided. The seminar fee is $375 or $350 each for two or more attending from the same firm. Contact Sheila Salvatore (315-792-5300, or ssalvatore@mvcc.edu) for more details. The seminar provides eight professional development hours (PDH) toward NYS Professional Engineers continuing education requirements.

Siegenthaler is a mechanical engineering graduate of Rensellaer Polytechnic Institute and has 28 years of experience in designing hydronic heating systems. He also is an Associate Professor of engineering technology at Mohawk, and author of the text, Modern Hydronic Heating.
