Sam Gladis and John Flynn of Emerson Climate Technologies  to Speak at International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration 2014 Industrial Refrigeration Conference


ST. LOUIS, Feb. 25, 2014 — Vilter Manufacturing LLC, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and part of the Emerson Climate Technologies business segment, today announced that Sam Gladis, business director, heat pumps, and John Flynn, director of sales, will speak at the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration 2014 Industrial Refrigeration Conference & Heavy Equipment Show. Taking place March 23–26 in Nashville, Tenn., Gladis will present “Optimized Design Strategies for Industrial Heat Pump Applications” on Monday, March 24 at 2:45 p.m. in Room CC — 209/210.
With an increased focus on improved sustainability, users are more frequently considering the energy efficiency and resource savings delivered by industrial heat pumps. Industrial heat pumps that utilize ammonia as the refrigerant are increasingly popular because ammonia has a Global Warning Potential and Ozone Depletion Potential of less than one. And, because ammonia runs hotter than many other refrigerants, it becomes an excellent candidate for heat recovery.
Attendees of Gladis’ presentation will:
  • receive an overview of several heat pump applications and learn how to select the right heat pump compressor that balances first cost with operating efficiency and maintenance costs
  • discover how to overcome compressor challenges and deliver the required temperatures using a natural and energy-efficient refrigerant
  • learn how to generate the necessary pressure to provide proper quality heat
In addition, Flynn will present “The Total Cost of Compressor Ownership” at 9:30 a.m. on March 24 in Room CC of the Exhibit Hall.
Gladis and Flynn will be available immediately after their presentations to answer questions and attendees can also drop by the Emerson Climate/Vilter booth (#802) to connect with them.
