Metropolitan Host Basics of Steam Seminar

We had a great turnout for the first Basics of Steam training seminar this year.

Instructed by salesmen Mike Temes and Neil Vogel, the seminar hosted a variety of customers from engineers to contractor. One of our priorities has always been to provide continuing knowledge on the different aspects of the water pump industry.

The training session held in August was designed to provide knowledge on the basic understanding of steam and heat transfer applications. The class discussed topics on steam generation, piping practices, steam trap, heat transfer, condensate management and a variety of other areas of the steam industry.

The seminars are a great way to introduce customers to our facility while also providing the customer with a four-hour training. At the completion of the class the attendees received their PDH certificate Employees are encouraged to remind customers of our ongoing training seminars throughout the year or refer them to the training tab on our website.

Nicor Energy Efficiency Program:

Christine Del Priore, Outreach Associate for Nicor Gas and the Energy Efficiency Program, was the guest speaker for the basics of steam class. Before the class broke for lunch, Del Priore spoke to the attendees about the benefits of the Business Energy Efficiency Rebate Program and Business Custom Incentive Program.

According to Del Priore, many companies do not realize how big the rebate really is. Some companies can earn up to $10,000 in rebates per month. Del Priore wanted to extend the opportunity to the training class so that customers could see the benefits that go along with the program.

The end of the program cycle is May 31, 2014, and although Nicor offers many rebate programs, according to Del Priore, this program is by far the biggest.

“Take advantage of the program while we still have the funding,” Del Priore said, “this is one of the better rebate programs Nicor has offered.”
