CDA Presents at the HVAC Excellence Conference

by Dale Powell, Copper Development Association, Project Manager and Piping Applications Specialist

Today there’s demand for higher efficiency in HVACR equipment that’s driven by increasing energy costs, changes in government regulations, new codes and improved standards in our industry.  Sometimes it’s challenging to keep pace with all of the technology/advancements. The CDA has resources and information that are helpful in answering some questions related to recent changes in the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).

I’m pleased to be presenting at the HVAC Excellence Conference in Las Vegas from March 31st – April 2nd about “Proper Training Procedures to Meet ASTM 828 Standards.” The 2014 National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference is the largest conference in the nation dedicated to providing professional development exclusively for HVACR educators and trainers.

The session I’m leading will provide attendees with information related to changes in the SDWA that affected the allowable Lead (Pb) levels of copper and copper alloys for drinking water applications – and how those changes are affecting other copper-intensive piping disciplines.  Attendees will learn about no-lead alloys and the proper soldering/brazing techniques necessary to install long-term satisfactory joins with lead-free alloys.  They will also receive a copy of the

CDA’s Copper Tube Handbook and a wealth of other documents and publications, all in electronic format.
