Fellow Phoenix ASPE members,

Hope you all had a happy and blessed Easter!

We are closing in on the end of another ASPE year – and we have another busy April with lots of things planned.

This Friday we will have a five hour Laboratory Gas Seminar done by Beacon Medaes (Thank you to Bill Kaht and Denis Hache!).  Plan is to go over codes, design standards, equipment types and selection, piping system design and sizing, and other miscellaneous laboratory gas system requirements.  Thank you to all those who have signed up.  I will be sending out an email soon with parking instructions included. 

Later this month we will have our very own Mike Olson (Pearson Engineering) do a presentation on Water Hammer.  Mike’s presentation will include the theory of water hammer, causes, and how to correct the issue.

At the end of the month we are still trying to put together a tour of a purified water system – the tour location is still in limbo – I’m hoping to have this finalized before our next meeting!

Finally, we still have some slots available for the Legionella webinar series this summer.  We will be opening up registration at the end of this month to non-Phoenix ASPE members.  Email me for details.

Finally, next month we will conclude the ASPE year, and our “Year of Legionella” with our last Legionella session.  The topic will cover Legal Risk and the Design Engineer – and we will have a lawyer from Baker Donelson and Associates (Law firm in Dallas that specializes in Legionella law litigation) to speak to us.  If you would like to sponsor our speaker (i.e. pay for his flight to/from Dallas) please let me know.  More information on our speaker and their presentation will come next month. 

Looking forward to learning together! 

Very Respectfully,
