|Mr. Brown is a 40 year Senior Life member of the
Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.
In 1988 I started porting programs from time shared main frame to PC for
Mr. John Cooper PE, under my wife's company - Computer Technical
Services. Mr. Cooper's Cooling tower programs aided in the design of large
natural draft cooling towers. John Arntson Phd. of Zurn Cooling Towers heard
of my services and asked me to develop software to speed up the process of
drafting the Natural Draft Design Curves. This was extended to cover
Mechanical Draft Cooling Towers. The speed up created Design Curves in
about a minute using Autocad on a drawing with Zurn's border and logo. Later,
for Zurn Dry Cooling, I ported a German Language Air Cooled Condenser
(ACC) analysis program to PC.
In 1992, I wrote the control logic for ACC's in SAMA syntax for SEMASS and
at the same time started to work with the City of Dunedin Water Treatment
plant on their Greensand Filter PLC through LA Water. After these two
projects, I was advised by another engineer that I needed to be working under
a licensed engineering company as I was signing and sealing plans.
So, in September of 1994, the paperwork for CTS Engineering was filed and
licensed in Florida as CA 7016. In the 25 years since then, we've worked with
most major cooling tower and ACC companies as well as a selection of Water
Treatment design companies.
