Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
Pumps & Systems, the leading magazine for pump users worldwide, presents the next edition of its Live Webinar Series on Oct. 11, 2012 at 1 p.m. Eastern. To register for the FREE Webinar, Optimize Your Maintenance Budget, please visit http://www.pump-zone.com.
The Webinar—sponsored by ITT Goulds Pumps—will explain how organizations can optimize their maintenance programs to mitigate risks and minimize costs. It will describe best practices for implementing a variety of pump maintenance strategies—including which equipment to target, what information to collect and how to use it effectively.
A recent poll by Pumps & Systems showed that maintenance and energy efficiency are by far the top two concerns of plant managers and process engineers. Unplanned repairs can be 10 times as costly as scheduled maintenance—but if plants spend too much time and effort to avoid them, the costs can outweigh the benefits.
The Webinar will be facilitated by Dan Kernan, manager of monitoring & control for ITT Industrial Process.
Supported by case studies from multiple industries, Kernan will give attendees actionable advice that they can use to understand and improve the bottom-line benefits of their total investment in pumping systems.
The Webinar targets plant managers, engineering and maintenance managers, production and maintenance supervisors, maintenance and reliability engineers and purchasing/accounting/finance managers.
The one-hour event will include a 15-minute live question-and-answer segment.
