Hot Topic Discussed in Indiana
The Indiana Chapter of the SCRT held its third meeting Tuesday February 8. The event was a success with SCRT board member Rachel Adams making a quick appearance to tell attendees about the benefits of SCRT Membership.
During the meeting, Kari Cole, then President of the Indiana Chapter announced that she would step down and nominated Mike Watkins as new Chapter President. The subsequent vote was unanimous, and Mike became the new President of the Indiana Chapter of SCRT.
The remainder of the meeting was an open discussion on heating equipment used in the restoration industry. Along with the discussion, a spreadsheet Mike Watkins had made from research from the various manufacturers was given to all those attending. It was a comparison of the various heated drying products most commonly used in the restoration industry.
After the discussion a short trip downstairs enabled those attending to get a little hands-on experience and to understand a few of the various heaters that manufacturers have supplied to the Hydro Lab for use and exposure.
Richard Anderson with Dry Smart was a surprise attendee with his diesel-fired trailer. Those present were able to see a hands on demonstration of a trailer mounted heating system. Further discussion around the products concluded a very pleasurable and informative meeting for those who attended. At least five people drove 2 to 3 hours for the event which was well worth their trip.
