                                        Welcome Little Man!                       Peggy Chapman - June 20


          Kudos go out to Steve Hershelman, one of our Service Techs who has been with Summit since
           2008, for attending the CO2 Training at the Garden City Ammonia Training (GCAP) facility in
                                                     Garden City, KS.

            “I found the Garden City Ammonia Program training center to be a top notch facility. The CO2
          Technician class was very informative with time split between classroom and hands on training.”
        Steve said. “The classroom consisted of theory, different system designs, and safety. The hands on
         portion consisted of using their Mayekawa NewTon 3000 Cascade (Brine) Pumped CO2 package
        system. It uses ammonia with a 100 pound charge as the high side, with a semi-hermetic two stage
           compressor and CO2 on the low side, that uses a Teikoku sealed pump to push the liquid CO2
           to two evaporators in a small freezer. We got to charge the system that was in a deep vacuum
          from a 600 pound cylinder and then start and adjust the valves and settings to achieve optimum
                                                        operation.”

         There was also a field trip to an ethanol plant where the by-product of the process is CO2 which is
        collected and compressed to 2,200 PSIG and sent 7 miles by underground pipe to an oil field. They
         then went to the oil field where the CO2 is compressed again and injected into the ground to help
                                              push the oil up to the derricks.



                                    We had a blast celebrating Fred’s
                                    birthday at the office...

                                    HAPPY  BIRTHDAY FRED!                   Work Anniversaries
