Personal Facts

I have a wife (Beth) and three kids (Landon 9, Norah 5, Sullivan 2).  Each summer we go on a family trip (Minnesota Zoo / Wisconsin Dells) and as the kids get older, we may venture further.  Beth and I enjoy going to Las Vegas each year as well.  In my spare time, I like to golf or play cards when I can.

Work Topics

What is something you do in your day-to-day work that others may not know or understand?  In order to determine the freight amount you must figure out the pallet density.

  • Step 1. Measure the height, width, and depth of the shipment in inches. On shipments with multiple pieces, repeat Step 1 for each piece.
  • Step 2. Multiply the three measurements (height x width x depth). The result is the total cubic inches of the shipment. If you have multiple pieces, multiply the height x width x depth for each piece. Take the results for each piece and add them together to get the total cubic inches
  • Step 3. Divide the total cubic inches by 1,728 (the number of cubic inches in a cubic foot). The result is the cubic feet of the shipment.
  • Step 4. Divide the weight (in pounds) of the shipment by the total cubic feet. The result is the pounds per cubic foot, i.e., density.  This value will determine which freight class the trucking company will bill Enerquip.  The lower the class, the less expensive and vice versa.

Share something interesting about your contribution in the process of manufacturing heat exchangers.  I started out as a welder and did some crate building.  When a position opened in quality control, I took it, and am responsible for the calibration of our pressure gauges and instruments used in inspection.  Along with that, I started to help with receiving, travelers and shipping, which is what I currently do now.
