On June 15 & 16, AYVA visited the ASEE (American Society for Engineering Education) conference held in Seattle this year. The conference spanned over 5 days and included lectures, workshops and an exhibitor hall.
Dianne Beveridge, President of AYVA, and Quentin Dus, sales representative, were able to meet with several of our product partners such as the British manufacturer TecQuipment, and the American brand PASCO Scientific.
The conference was well attended (with over 4000 participants) and our partners’ booths were visited by numerous engineering professors, interested in learning more about the lab equipment available for their teaching needs.
If you wish to know more about these brands as well as our other engineering product lines, please visit our partners page.
Nida Najfi, the newest addition to the AYVA Team visited the Materials Science Lab at the University of Waterloo.
She is pictured here with TecQuipment‘s Modular Structures and Materials Testing equipment which has been well received at universities across Canada. To read feedback from one of our professors who is a long-time user of this equipment, click here
PIGNAT’s Technical Specialist, Regis Rodriguez was at University of Windsor at the end of May to install a recently purchased Refrigeration Cycle Unit. He also provided a day-long training session to graduate students, instructors, and professors. Everyone in attendance found it very informative and was excited to start using the equipment.

In the past, several PASCO, Tecquipment and Elettronica Veneta equipment have also been purchased by the University from AYVA.
We kicked off September with a road trip for our Partner from PIGNAT. Regis Rodriguez joined AYVA’s Shanil Vaja to install and commission a broad range of chemical processing equipment in three different provinces.
Carly at The University of Guelph gave us the thumbs up for their new Distillation Unit with a Touch Screen Display and their new Spray Dryer. They are now able to study and operate a controlled distillation process.
Regis also trained the faculty at Sheridan College on their custom designed Chemical Reactor. The REA/2000 provides a small volume reactor of 1 litre for studying chemical reactions with different parameters.
In Western Canada he visited both the University of Saskatchewan and The University of Alberta. In Saskatoon he provided hands-on training on a Dissolved air flotation unit and a custom designed a Hydrocyclone treatment unit.
In Edmonton, Regis was on hand to ensure successful operation of their new Filtration on Sand (FSA/3000) unit and to provide training for all their staff.
AYVA is pleased to be partnered with PIGNAT and offer quality custom built equipment with professionally trained installers and trainers.
