A lover of cinema, literature and writing

Gildardo YáñezGildardo Yáñez is the technical manager of Grupo Refrigerantes de México, who highlights training as the engine that makes current professionals productive, and encourages the generation of environmentally friendly systems. by Duván Chaverra A.

29 years ago, Gildardo Yáñez was receiving the academic title that accredited him as a technical professional in industrial electricity, and from that moment began the long and profitable journey through the refrigeration industry that today has led him to be the technical and IT manager of the Refrigerantes Group of Mexico. Watching movies, reading, and writing about refrigeration topics are activities you use to distract yourself. "I try to read at least six books a year, which are not technical, since I am passionate about what I do, but I also recognize that I must have contact with literature that is not technical." Gildardo was only 18 years old when he began his professional career working in an electrical equipment store, installing and repairing this kind of systems. In 1992 he arrived at the company where he currently works starting as a refrigeration technician. "In 1992 I was hired to assemble an electrical system of a freezing chamber, a task that I gladly accepted since it was something new. They told me that it was about lowering the temperature to a large room. When I was installing the electrical system I was able to observe the work of the refrigeration technicians: welding of the copper tubes with oxygen and acetylene, nitrogen tests to test the welds, vacuum tests, etc., activities that caught my attention and that continue to be of interest to me because of how complicated it is to follow them, "said the guest. That contract meant that the refrigeration industry caught our professional of the month: "In the end, when everything was finished, I could see how a large room could lower its temperature to freeze food. I liked the experience and the final result, little by little the refrigeration was catching me until I dedicated myself to it full time. It's been almost 20 years since I started my journey in refrigeration, and since that time I haven't stopped learning from this industry." Gildardo Yáñez says that he constantly pushes himself to achieve his goals and that this impetus is due to his discipline. "What I like most about myself is the discipline I have to stand firm in the goal I must achieve; I don't lose the target no matter how far away it is. I have the ability to disassemble the projects that generate small goals for me, and that when I complete them allow me to put together great projects, whether personal or professional. The problem is that I put a lot of pressure on myself when I'm not moving at the speed I should." Training and updating
For many of the actors that work within the refrigeration industry, the issue of training and updating is vital to remain competent and to know the latest developments in technology and administration offered by the industry year after year. Gildardo recognizes that at present not all professionals linked to the industry show the interest that deserves to participate in spaces, talks or conferences available in the region where members of the industry are trained. "It is not easy to convince a person and tell them that they must study and continue doing so of their own volition to be able to improve themselves, since in these times technological advances are presented day by day and if we stop training easily we can be overcome by a colleague who if he wants to move forward with his professional updates. "

For the professional of the month it is a challenge to stay updated and convince their colleagues or colleagues to understand the importance of participating in academic spaces on their own initiative. "One of the professional challenges I have, like all other colleagues, is to keep up to date in the different technical areas with which I have contact day by day, which in my case are refrigeration, electricity and information technologies. The other challenge I have is to convince the people I work with or who collaborate in the company that they are the ones who must voluntarily attend all the trainings that our suppliers kindly give us or that sometimes I have the privilege of imparting". Industry Vision
Gildardo Yáñez does not overlook the issue that a few years ago began to occupy an important space within the refrigeration industry and that currently continues on the path of positioning, it is about new technologies friendly to the environment. "The challenge facing our industry is to develop cooling systems that have a lower environmental impact compared to today. This means having refrigerants with low global warming potential in the systems, that the energy consumption of the equipment is such that we can make it work with an energy source that does not pollute the environment, either through solar or wind power generation systems, "said the professional of the month. For the guest, the development of green systems will allow the sector to encourage the commercialization of these products motivated by the considerable savings in energy, and by the ecological contribution that positively helps to conserve the planet. "Currently, 40% of the energy consumption in a building corresponds to the energy used by air conditioning and refrigeration systems, which are responsible for maintaining the temperature of the building, this percentage being higher in a self-service store that has more refrigeration facilities than air conditioning."To highlight

Webinar: Armstrong y Energía de Distrito

Por: Rafael Behar, Gerente de Apoyo de Aplicación, Armstrong Fluid Technology Los sistemas de energía de distrito se caracterizan por una o más plantas centrales que producen agua caliente, vapor y/o agua fría, que luego fluye a través de una red de tuberías aisladas para proporcionar agua caliente, calefacción y/o aire acondicionado a los edificios cercanos. Los sistemas de energía de distrito sirven a una variedad de mercados de uso final, incluidos los centros de las ciudades (distritos comerciales centrales), campus universitarios, hospitales e instalaciones de atención médica, aeropuertos, bases militares y complejos industriales. Al combinar cargas para múltiples edificios, los sistemas de energía urbana crean economías de escala que ayudan a reducir los costos de energía y permiten el uso de tecnologías de alta eficiencia. En este seminario web vamos a introducir a Armstrong Fluid Tecnología y su dirección para la energía urbana con enfoques en plantas de calefacción.
