Lisa M. Walton has extensive experience in hydraulic analyses and pump selection. Her principal areas of expertise include examination and analysis of operating systems, writing specifications, evaluating vendor proposals, preparation of process diagrams, compiling system descriptions and economic analysis. She has presented training seminars on equipment theory and maintenance.

As a sales engineer for Kriebel Engineered Equipment, Lisa managed a northeastern PA territory for numerous pump and chemical process equipment manufacturers. At Raytheon Engineers and Constructors, Lisa was a mechanical engineer in the Fossil Energy Division working primarily on existing coal-fired power plants in North America. Selected accomplishments include:

  • Lead project engineer for flue gas desulfurization auxiliary system modifications, double wall fuel oil pipe upgrade, and emergency diesel generator installation. Responsibilities included: development and achievement of manpower budgets and project schedules; coordination of design efforts; preparation of engineering calculations, procurement and installation specifications, and technical bid evaluations; and interface with clients and vendors.
  • Coordination of economic analysis comparing Orimulsion-fired to coal-fired power plants for various locations overseas. Analysis included development of plant conceptual design, cost estimates and economic basis.
  • Conceptual mechanical/instrumentation engineering with subsequent design, specification and implementation of continuous emissions monitoring systems.
  • Determination of circulating water thermal discharge characteristics including development of test programs, computer modeling of condenser performance, interpretation of results, economic evaluation of impact on plant performance and formation of recommendations for remediation resulting in new thermal discharge permit limits.
  • Development of economic model to predict profitable life of circulating fluidized boiler steam generating power plant. Prepared expert testimony for litigation.

Lisa has been active with the Society of Women Engineers for many years, and held various positions at the chapter and regional levels, including section president. She was selected as the Young Engineer of the Year in 1996 by the Philadelphia Engineer's Club of Philadelphia. She is a member of NSPE.

Lisa holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Valparaiso University, along with a BA in History and was elected to both Tau Beta Pi and Phi Theta honorary societies. She received a MS in Mechanical Engineering from Drexel University, specializing in heat transfer and thermodynamics. She is a licensed engineer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
