Keeping it simple: Steps to determine motor’s actual load

Contrary to popular opinion, bigger isn’t always better—especially when it comes to electric motors. Plant maintenance and engineering departments like having a little extra power available “just in case,” so they sometimes specify larger motors than applications require. But oversized motors cost more to... Read More

Managing Assets Using Criticality
This webcast will focus on the construction of a risk-based criticality analysis model. The model will create visibility of production impacts, as well as risks to environmental and safety performance, maintenance costs and the allocation of precious capital resources. With a clear understanding of how to construct your analysis model, we will expand our thinking towards the development of asset management plans aimed at mitigating the predominant characteristics that make each asset significant.

Thursday, Nov. 6, 2014 at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT/11 a.m. PT

One (1) RCEP / ACEC Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.
