Improving your Advisory Committee
Tony Trapp and Scott Naill, Upper Valley Career Center
How can educators maximize use of program advisory meetings to further elevate success of students,
schools, and business partners? This session will provide a template for committee makeup and engagement
with work-based learning strategies to turn routine, required meetings into an exciting arena that contributes
to career-tech improvement. Participants will also learn about the U.S. Department of Education accelerated
movement towards more quality apprenticeships and how to be more involved in this new branding of
"college completion without debt."

Next Generation Refrigerants
Ron Vogl, Honeywell
This session will cover the changing refrigerant and system architecture confronting our industry. A brief
overview of the regulatory issues facing our industry will be followed by an introduction to new refrigerant
molecules and blends, their application and benefits. The challenges facing end users, manufacturers and the
service industry as new/old technologies emerge will be discussed.
Electronically Controlled Refrigerant Flow - Where and Why
Gene Zeigler, Sporlan Valve
This session will cover electronically controlled electric step motor actuated valves which are being employed
in place of traditional mechanical valves in many common refrigerant flow applications. The discussion will
include electric expansion valve (EEV), electric evaporator pressure regulator (EEPR), electric hot gas valve
(EHGV) and electric reheat valve (ERV) application information. Both the step motor actuated electric valves
and electronic controllers as well as the required temperature and/or pressure sensors for these refrigerant
system uses will be described. In addition to a review of operating principles, installation, servicing and
troubleshooting of valves, controllers and sensors, consideration will be shared regarding the perceived
advantages which have driven industry trends toward electronic refrigerant control.
