Greetings ASPE Members,

 

Happy October and cheers to embarking on the best time of the year to be a Phoenician.
For this month’s meeting we will learn about emergent technologies in medical gas systems and changes found in the 2018 NFPA 99.
With the introduction of the 2018 edition of the NFPA 99 Healthcare Facilities Code, there are new items found in medical gas systems that have never before been included. Mathis Carlson will present an overview of the code changes and new items found in the 2018 edition of the NFPA 99.
Mathis Carlson is a Technical Sales Engineer for MediTrac, a manufacturer of corrugated medical gas tubing. Prior to joining MediTrac, Mathis spent 12 years working as a medical gas verifier and instructor after working as a plumber specializing in medical gasses for 10 years.
Mathis holds multiple ASSE medical gas certifications including the 6005 specialist, 6010 installer, 6020 inspector, 6030 verifier, 6035 bulk verifier, 6040 maintenance and 6050 instructor. He also maintains his ASME IX brazing certification and master plumbers license. In addition, he holds the MGPHO CMGV certified medical gas verifiers credential. This should be a great topic!
It’s not too early to begin thinking about the 26th Annual ASPE/ASHRAE Tabletop Product Show. If you have any suggestions for Tech Session topics you’d like to see presented, we’d love your input. Please reach out to me or Christoph with any suggestions.  
As always, if there is any way I can improve your experience with the ASPE Phoenix Chapter, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at a meeting or contact me via phone or email.

Best regards,
