  • Industrial Calculators is a downloadable suite of calculations for use by a utility marketing representative when working with a customer on plant improvements and energy efficiency evaluations.  There are 31 calculators covering a wide range of equipment in Steam Systems and Process Heating.  Each calculator has an input sheet with descriptions for the inputs and suggestions for typical inputs.  Once entered, a report can be printed for sharing with a customer.  Download the Industrial Calculators in one file by going to the "Tools & Calculators" page from the menu on the left.
  • A Practical Guide to Flowmeters, by Bob Griffin, as been revised.  This comprehensive book guides the user in selecting a flow meter for his specific application, based on performance, technical specifications and cost criteria.  Twenty different meters in three main categories have been chosen for comparison.  The main attributes of each meter, advantages, disadvantages and approximate costs, are tabulated in a standard format for easy comparison. 
  • Industrial Training for IMAC members is an ongoing effort.  A committee of members is working to develop training to be rolled out over the course of the next year.  The first module is expected to be ready in September 2017.
