A Message From the Chairman

I am looking forward to being the Chairman of the Heat Exchanger World Americas Conference & Expo 2024. This wonderful event provides endless opportunities to allow the heat transfer community to come together. Attendees will have the chance to partake in new ways of thinking by accomplishing upcoming goals through extensive knowledge transfer, learning of the latest innovations in heat transfer equipment, cost-saving initiatives, practical solutions, and technical demonstrations. This event will serve as a stage for networking opportunities with some of the most talented individuals in this diverse industry.

Throughout my career, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise in sealing, bolting, training, and technical support.  My position at Teadit North America in Pasadena, TX has allowed me to oversee its team of Outside Sales Managers, Application Engineers and Field Service Technicians. As an SME in Bolted Flange Joints subject matter, I have authored and maintained standards for the assembly of bolted-flanged connections and valve packing installations. During my career, I have had the opportunity to assist end users and OEMs in providing the necessary training to understand bolted flange joints, sealings and gaskets, which is necessary for understanding their connection to heat transfer equipment. Having the opportunity to educate and train is vital to ensuring your heat transfer equipment meets maximum performance; this way, users extend the life expectancy of their assets, improving processes and mitigating common challenges.

As we anticipate meeting one another this October, we invite you to join us at the NRG Center, with your ideas and topics focused on heat exchanger costs, design, performance, maintenance and efficiency in the oil and gas industry. I am confident that there is something for every professional from all levels of expertise at the Heat Exchanger World Americas Conference and Expo 2024. I am looking forward to seeing you all there!
