Summer of Webcasts continues with maintenance, arc flash
The weather has turned hot outside, and so has the information you can get from PLANT ENGINEERING on these critical topics for plant engineers. Join us on July 19 and Aug. 2, respectively, to hear from experts on these two issues.
PLANT ENGINEERING ’s Summer of Webcasts continues next Thursday, July 19, with a look at maintenance. A crucial part of any plant floor strategy, maintenance is too often seen as a cost of doing business. Few recognize that a return on investment can be realized with sound maintenance practices.
With a little bit of time and effort, and a sound plan, maintenance can put dollars back into the bottom line instead of take them from it. Join experts from Unicco and Cargill at 1 p.m. CDT as they discuss how to develop a sound maintenance plan, how to assess ROI in maintenance and where to turn for help.

Arc flash returns as the topic of another Webcast on Aug. 2 at 1 p.m. CDT. Senior Editor Jack Smith moderates a LIVE town-hall discussion with experts from General Electric, DuPont and Square D on this issue that continues to dominate plant personnel’s safety concerns.
