Marine Refrigeration Workshop
Offered in April
March 22, 2007
Integrated Marine Systems, a recognized leader in the manufacture
of innovative refrigeration products for the fishing and seafood
processing industry, announced a marine refrigeration workshop
for April 2007. IMS has been offering these types of workshops
since 2003 and is presenting the workshops in conjunction with
the Jefferson Educational Center, WSU Jefferson County Extension
and Washington Sea Grant. The 2006 workshops each had over 25
participants in attendance.
workshop enables fishermen to handle refrigeration
situations that they previously felt were beyond their control.
The workshops teach commercial fishing vessel owners how to perform
basic maintenance, troubleshooting and repairs on their onboard
refrigeration equipment. This type of training empowers vessel
owners with the knowledge needed for emergency repair situations
at sea and prevents the loss of valuable fishing time sitting
at the dock waiting for onshore repair help to arrive. According
to Doug Short, Sales Engineer and a workshop instructor for IMS,
"The workshop is a great help to fisherman, it enables them
to handle refrigeration situations that they previously felt
were beyond their control."
Topics that will be covered
include; general maintenance, controller programming, charging
with Freon® and thermal expansion valve adjustment, with
time allowed to address specific questions from the participants.
Attendees can apply for certification on the use of Freon®.
A 7 1/2-ton RSW system will be used as a training aid during
class and an informative handbook is provided to each participant.
The first workshop was held
on March 10th at the IMS manufacturing facility at Port Townsend
Washington's Boat Haven. A second workshop is scheduled to be
held at IMS on Saturday April 28th. The workshop fee is $25 with
no extra charge for the class materials provided.
Pre-registration is advised.
