The Dry Heat Exchanger

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Hope that everyone is enjoying the late spring weather, before the heat is upon us! At our April meeting, we were pleased to welcome Sean Katseralis from the U of AZ, who discussed the progress being made on Compressed Air Energy Storage Systems being made right here in Tucson.  I hope everyone took away something useful from the presentation. We had a total of 28 people attend the meeting at Feast.  We received 26 evaluation forms with a total point average of 90.1 out of 100. We appreciate receiving the evaluation forms as this helps in selecting future topics and speakers so please keep giving us the feedback good, bad, or indifferent. Additionally, if you have any recommendations for presentation topics and speakers please feel free to let me know- my email address is tom.mcgreal@cas-sw.com.
 
The 2013 Tucson ASHRAE Golf Tournament was held on Friday April 19th  at the Hilton El Conquistador. The tournament was a huge success, and raised over $2500 towards our Research Promotion Goal for this year! Thanks to everyone that participated, and a special thanks to all of our sponsors!
 
Please come join us for the last lunch meeting of the 2012-2013 ASHRAE season. The meeting will be held on Wednesday 5/15, and we are pleased to welcome Noah Welshans and Wendy Grosvenor from Johnson Controls, to speak with us on Energy Dashboards and the use of Cloud technology for Building Control. Should be excellent information, see you there!
