Chicago Chapter ISPE


September JEP Talk PDH Seminars

Understanding Primary Pumping
Condensing Boiler Technology

Wednesday, September 14th
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

Presented by:  Mr. Nathan Hughes is a mechanical engineer with 9 years of experience designing HVAC, fire protection, and plumbing systems. He received a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northern Illinois University and is currently with Greeley and Hansen, a leading environmental consulting engineering firm dedicated to the water and wastewater industry. His experience includes heating and cooling systems, software analysis and selection, plumbing systems, fire protection systems, and energy modeling. Mr. Hughes is responsible for design coordination with other disciplines involved. In addition, he has served as the primary mechanical contact for numerous sophisticated projects during construction. He has been a member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers since 2008.

Topic Summary:  This presentation will discuss non-condensing boiler systems, condensing boiler technology, and system comparisons. Focusing on primary pumping condensing boilers, boiler industry trends, and comparing this technology against a traditional design of hot water boiler systems.

About Chicago Chapter

The Chicago Chapter of the Illinois Society of Professional Engineers (ISPE) is a professional association representing the interests of engineers in Chicago from all fields of practice. ISPE is a state society member of the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). ISPE consists of licensed professional engineers, licensed structural engineers, licensed land surveyors, engineer interns, graduate engineers, and engineering students. NSPE, ISPE, and the Chicago Chapter all work to promote the engineering profession at the national, state, and local levels. Because of our diverse membership we often seek to collaborate with other organizations to serve our common member base and increase networking opportunities.

The Chicago Chapter aims to provide quality professional development and network building events in the greater Chicago area. Many events are over the lunch hour or immediately after work hours, focusing on a variety of engineering related topics and frequently offering professional development hours (PDH).

The Chapter also supports the Chicago Region MATHCOUNTS competition, provides scholarships to engineering college students, and distributes awards to local engineering firms for significant project achievements.
