BURR RIDGE, Ill. — Weil-McLain experts will offer complimentary training seminars and demonstrations on best practices for installing, servicing, and operating high-efficiency boilers for attendees of the 2019 Eastern Energy Expo. The event will take place May 19-22 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The free programs will cover a variety of topics and include indoor and outdoor sessions throughout the expo.

The professional training seminars have been divided into two modules: “Foundations of Hydronics” and “High-Efficiency Boilers — Operation and Service.”

“Foundations of Hydronics” is scheduled from 2:30 to 4 p.m., May 20, in room Empire B.

Tim Doran, territory sales manager for Weil-McLain, will instruct participants on successful boiler installation techniques and how to avoid roadblocks to success. Topics include pipe sizing and configuration, circulator sizing, air entrapment, calculating heat load, and expansion tank sizing.


“High-Efficiency Boilers — Operation and Service” is scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to noon, May 21, in room Cocoa 5.

Robert Melinis, training and technical manager for Weil-McLain, will take the mystery out of high-efficiency condensing boilers and share the fundamentals for operating modern units to optimal efficiency. Topics include outdoor reset, condensing heat exchangers, modulation of the burner, how boiler components interact, and cleaning and servicing of three types of heat exchangers.

“The latest generation of our high-efficiency boilers offer industry-leading features and functionality that can be both exciting and intimidating to those unfamiliar with how to operate them,” said Melinis. “Our experts will simplify the different components and capabilities of our modern, condensing boilers, and provide insight on how to avoid or overcome common roadblocks to realize the units’ full potential.”

The outdoor demonstrations and seminars — “Steam Boiler Live Fire Demonstration” and  “High-Efficiency Gas Boiler Operation and Service” — will be held at the Weil-McLain outdoor tent O8 at various times throughout the course of the expo.

“Our live demonstrations will offer attendees a front-row seat to view our most innovative boilers in action,” said Melinis.
