West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) April 7, 2006
The International Powder & Bulk solids conference/exhibition, held this coming May 8-11 in Rosemont, Il, is trusted globally as the most important industry event for facilities that process and store dry particulates and bulk solids. The event offers up-close, hands-on evaluation of the full spectrum of processing and material handling equipment and new technology. Among the exhibitors will be Florida based CV Technology. What CV Technology offers will be of major interest to the attendees of the exhibition.
Safety and continuity of process are of major value to all companies, but especially to the world of bulk and powder. The fine materials and production methods used put factories, equipment, process, and employees at risk for catastrophe. Current statistics estimate that approximately 2-3 dust explosions occur in various facilities in the U.S. per day with a major dust explosion happening every 20 years. Plants that manufacture with powders and bulk solids are even more susceptible. FM Global, the largest industrial insurer, reports the greatest number of losses have occurred in bucket elevators, silos, bins, and dust collectors. While other equipment equally susceptible includes: high-speed mills, grinders, blenders, and mixers. It is no wonder that the dynamic field of deflagration mitigation has been a primary focus of many C-level officers as well as their employees and families. Understanding and preventing these dangerous events is one of the most challenging tasks facing companies today.
Now, more then ever, safety conscious facility managers are turning to specialized consultants to develop strategies to reduce and in some cases eliminate the underlying causes of explosive events. Enter, CV Technology. Based in West Palm Beach Florida, CV Technology is an explosion safety, protection and prevention consulting and engineering company. They help companies by diagnosing the areas where they are at risk as well as prepare them for the worst should a disaster occur.
“There are a whole host of explosion protection solutions available, which could prevent or minimize the effects of an explosive event.” says David Cvetas, president of CV Technology. “We’re not just protecting the equipment or the people in the plant; we’re also protecting the revenue that the process generates.
The ultimate goal of explosion protection systems is to maximize profits by preventing or mitigating the potential consequences due to a process explosion. It is well understood that the plant exists to manufacture goods and by doing so provide a return to the shareholders of the enterprise. Any protection system that interferes with the production process is a liability. States Cvetas, “The best explosion protection system is as non-intrusive to the process operations as is feasible.” CV Technologies experienced engineers blend active and passive technologies to match the best available protection methods to the application.
CV Technology’s impressive client portfolio includes top bulk solid and powder manufactories, food processing facilities, and other fortune 100 companies. While every process is different and the value of each process varies, a recent survey of 101 senior executives in one industry disclosed that one minute of downtime cost an average of $22,000. On average that translates into facilities that produce revenue from a quarter million to several million dollars a day. A single incident can shut down a facility for weeks or months. Corporate executives that want to minimize the substantial risks need to take this issue seriously and not wait until an explosion occurs to take action.
What explosion protection systems really provide is insurance. They give companies the peace of mind that they are operating their plants safely, while not only preventing loss of life, but also protecting their financial security and the valuable process that they depend upon.
CV Technology will be located at Booth 1947 at the upcoming International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference/Exhibition, May 8-11 2006. The event is held bi-annually at the Donald E Stephens Convention center in Rosemont, Illinois. It is trusted globally as the most important industry event for processing engineers, production engineers, plant managers and operations managers who process, handle, package, transport, test and store dry particulates and bulk solids.
CV Technology combines a legacy of experienced explosion consulting with revolutionary and completely unique explosion prevention and explosion protection technologies to specialize in the prevention, protection, and elimination of dust explosion hazards in all industries which process powders and dry bulk materials.
