Nina Zerman, Senior Manager, Dürr Systems, Inc.

Sustainability is becoming increasingly critical; businesses must adopt practices that support a circular economy and reduce environmental impact. Service organizations can play a vital role in promotingsus tainability throughout the product lifecycle.

Circular economy is a system that aims to minimize waste and maximize the use of resources by keeping assets in use for as long as possible. The combination of sustainability and circular economy together produces a restorative, regenerative system that aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest value and lowest utility usage. Dürr offers pollution control systems that meet or exceed environmental companies yet comply with sustainable policies and extended product life cycle.

Additionally, Dürr’s service organization can help businesses adopt sustainable practices by providing services that support the circular economy. These services include repair, refurbishment, re-manufacturing, and recycling. By extending the life of products, service organizations can help reduce waste and promote sustainability.

What attendees will learn

  • Learn about technical methods to stay in environmental compliance
  • How to implement sustainability and energy reduction to their APC systems
  • How to extend the life of their APC

Warren Bowman, District Sales Manager & Courtney Tripp, Sr. Manager of Sustainability and Strategy, Grundfos

Our focus is providing Intelligent, sustainable solutions that improve the efficiency and reliability of your operations. Working with leading corporations, Grundfos’ goal is to help every industry reduce wasted energy, carbon, and water during production of the world’s needed products. As the first water solutions company with approved net zero and near-term targets through the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), Grundfos is focused on helping manufacturers to reduce their scope 1 and 2 emissions through the hidden potential in their pump rooms and on-site utilities. Helping engineers and industry to build a more efficient and sustainable production process is our commitment through advanced motor and drive technologies, sizing tools, and energy audits.

  • An Overview of the Science Based Targets initiative and scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.
  • Insights into how Grundfos can help attendees and their companies meet these targets.
  • Get introduced to Grundfos’ (Free) Energy Optimization programs to determine energy usage, costs, and carbon impact of dated pumping equipment, potential energy saving options with ROI, cost savings, and carbon usage reduction.

What attendees will learn:

  • Learn about intelligent dosing pumps and systems, as well as e-motor pumps built with integral PLC/ VFD controls designed to reduce product waste, water and power usage.
  • Hear about case studies where these technologies are being applied successfully.

Dan Purkat, Worldwide Industrial Product Manager, Graco, Inc.

Today’s chemical formulations are constantly striving to be environmentally friendly. Now, “being green” can be achieved at the plant level. Operations managers are under constant pressure to meet deadlines while continuing to find ways to lower overall production costs. These issues can be overcome by using improved pump technologies while significantly lowering energy and maintenance costs. Using electronically controlled diaphragm pumps for specific raw material transfer, process transfer, and filling applications provide unique opportunities for improvement. Understanding how your local Utility Company can assist with the initial purchase combined with reduced daily energy consumption is critical to lowering costs. By employing specific pumping technologies in key applications, KWh consumption can be reduced by factor of 5x or more. An understanding of these technologies allows for continued process improvements while lowering total overall operating costs.

What attendees will learn:

  • How new pumping technologies are being utilized to achieve sustainability goals
  • Comparative analysis of new technology vs. existing
  • How these new technologies operate
  • How local utilities can assist in defraying installation costs and utilizing incentives

Jason Cumberland, Regional Sales Manager, Hach

Organic contamination is a key water quality parameter that is measured in most industrial environments and in many different applications. The speed, accuracy, and range of organics analysis has increased in recent years, and the reliability of online organics analyzers has improved. This improvement in functionality and confidence in continuous organics analyzers has seen an increase in demand from industries to monitor organics to minimize product loss, protect steam cycle equipment, and mitigate environmental compliance risks. This presentation will review the range of organics analysis methods for water and wastewater with an emphasis on the methods for Total Organic Carbon (TOC) that have been adapted to online organics analysis. Typical installation locations and applications will also be presented.

What attendees will learn:

Overview of organics analysis techniques for water and wastewater (BOD, COD, TOC, UVAS). Modern improvements in the reliability of continuous Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analyzers. Overview of common TOC monitoring locations for industries.
