FREE WEBINAR: From Design to Operation: Smoothing Out the Start-Up

Thursday, November 8, 2018 – 2:00 p.m. ET

Whether installing just one new piece of equipment, or bringing an entire new plant on-line, start-up and performance verification for utility and process systems can be the difference between operational success from day one or troubleshooting throughout the first few months…or even longer. Something as simple as an improperly programmed sequence of operations can cause significant problems, impacting the overall efficiency and performance of the system. These problems can be magnified when turning the facility over to the owner’s team without providing proper guidance and background information regarding design parameters for the critical systems.

In “From Design to Operation: Smoothing Out the Start-Up,” a Food Plant of the Future webinar presented by Hixson and co-sponsored by Food Engineering Magazine, attendees will:

  • Learn how start-up and performance verification activities can position facilities for success from the very beginning.
  • Discover why confirming that the entire system is working, not just individual components, matters.
  • Understand the importance of knowing the design intent so that it can be passed onto maintenance and operations personnel.
