We had a 'major' storm come through last night. The forecasters said we'd have window rattling thunderstorms rolling through sometime between 10 PM and 2 AM.


If there were any, I slept right through them. I've become a light sleeper lately and I didn't wake up.

How's the young'un? Taught him how to strip wires yet?

    I did just that when I saw David's post.

    We've had just increadble spring weather since Friday, with temps in the 60s. Was great weather for digging up the septic system to find out why I was getting effluent in the basement! (Turns out the septic drains into an old stone cesspool which drains into my basement, even though it's 25 feet away!)

    The boy has too big a gap in his front teeth to strip wires yet, but he produces enough excess dental growth lubricant to keep his tools well oiled! He's a fully trained wethead with all the right tools and head-wear!

    How're your 2(?) doing?

    Here's the Deal

    Here is a (relatively) quick once-over of what will be covered at my April 10th seminar at the Holiday Inn Select in Atlanta, GA.

    Geared towards those of you (chillheads)who service air conditioning equipment, this five-hour seminar starts with a graphical review of the basic refrigeration cycle, which will help clarify the concepts that will be discussed later on. The concept of a repeating-cycle versus a non-repeating cycle is discussed as well.

    As part of the refrigeration cycle review/disussion, the concepts of superheat and subcooling will be addressed in a manner that will leave you wondering why you ever had difficulty with these ideas in the past. Be sure to ask me about the desert island at the seminar!

    Now that we've got the preliminary work out of the way, it's time to delve deep into the world of pressure-enthalpy. But not like you would expect. No need for calculus or the like, we'll discuss this topic in easy-to-understand English so that service technicians, apprentices, service managers and others who wish to be in-the-know will have absolutely no problems following along.

    But what exactly is pressure-enthalpy?

    Glad you asked!

    Pressure is, well, pressure... So far so good, right? Great.

    Enthalpy is heat. Plain and simple.

    The pressure enthalpy chart (also known as the Mollier diagram) is a graphical way to see an air conditioning or refrigeration system with regards to pressure and heat.

    To plot an air conditioning system on the p-e or p-h diagram (pressure-enthalpy, or pressure-heat) you take the information you have already obtained from your basic service, such as system pressures and temperatures, and plot these data on the chart. With practice, this can take as little as 2 minutes.

    Now... with this completed chart, you will be able to perform some really cool (no pun intended) calculations. You will be able to determine the actual system capacity, condenser capacity, energy efficieny rating (EER) and a whole lot more. Wouldn't it be great to go up to a system that has a 3-ton nameplate and know for sure that you are getting at least 3 tons of cooling from it? I think so!

    In addition, the completed pressure enthalpy chart, along with the calculations you performed, is a great troubleshooting tool. Being able to "see" what is going on inside those refrigerant lines give you that added edge that separates average technicians from great ones.

    Here's what you get at the seminar:

    1 - A full 5 hours of learning time with an industry recognized and decorated teacher (that's me)

    2 - A copy of my celebrated book: PRESSURE ENTHALPY WITHOUT TEARS

    3 - A kit that contains all you need to begin plotting air conditioning and refrigeration systems on your own (The kit contains a binder for note taking, clear plastic ruler, colored pencils colored pens, a calculator and a laminated pressure-enthalpy reference card)

    4 - A floppy disc with an Excel spreadsheet program that will do all of the presure enthalpy calculations for you!

    The materials you walk away with are worth the price of admission by themselves!

    In addition to the technical materials you get, you will also be fed..TWICE... WOW!

    So guys.... what are you waiting for?

    I look forward to seeing you guys (and gals) in February!
