Electrostatic Precipitator Workshop: Optimizing Performance and Reliability - Pittsburgh PA

August 28, 2013 - August 29, 2013
Pittsburgh, PA
Directors, managers, engineers, planners and plant-level personnel who are interested in improving their understanding of ESP operation and identifying opportunities to optimize performance, prioritize maintenance activities, and reduce costs.

Learning Experience

As demands increase on plants to reduce emissions, operate more flexibly and reduce costs, sharing knowledge improves your understanding of precipitators and the opportunities they present to help you achieve your goals.

This two day, consultative workshop is facilitated in a collaborative format using active learning. Participants bring with them information about real-world precipitator problems they need help solving. While working to solve those problems, you’ll develop action plans for optimizing equipment and processes, learn skills and gain knowledge needed to implement your plans and become more effective at identifying opportunities to optimize performance and reduce costs. To get the most value out of this workshop overall and the included action plan development process, we encourage multiple people from the same plant to participate.

Schedule: 7:00am-3:00pm each day
Meals included: full breakfast and lunch.
Sessions: mix of discussion and group activities.
