Expert in HVAC Control Systems and Equipment
Expert's career path includes the selection of air-to-refrigerant and water-to-refrigerant heat exchangers used as evaporators, reheat coils, or condensers in primarily R-22 DX systems from 1/2 to 200 tons, as well as the specialty items (filters, driers, back-pressure valves, EPR valves, oil separators, sight glasses, expansion valves, head pressure controls, etc) and refrigerant piping (sizing and routing) to produce properly operating systems.
Expert has been designing and directing new or redesigned product development in this area for many years. His work includes conceptual design, component selection, control systems, piping, wiring, sheet metal structure and enclosure, prototype and preproduction unit preparation, and major agency construction requirements.
Expert has designed units for residential, industrial, transportation, severe environment, military, and computer room applications. He is skilled with performance test equipment, as well as the documentation and testing requirements of safety approval agencies such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Intertek Testing Services/ETL Testing Laboratories, and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).
He has done a significant amount of on-site evaluation, trouble-shooting, and commissioning of HVAC and control equipment and systems for single and multi-family residences, schools, and office buildings.
