Quality Filtration held in-depth Filtration and Contamination training at Nucor Steel in Blytheville, AR in February. The three-day class, sponsored by Mid-South Sales and Quality Filtration, was attended by 30 Nucor employees from the maintenance, manufacturing and engineering departments.
Ivan Sheffield, Vice President of Quality Filtration, covered hydraulics, maintenance practices, ISO Standards and the basics of filtration. Perry Byrd, Vice President of Mid-South Sales, helped with fluid training. Matt Wilkins, Hot Mill Mechanical Maintenance Supervisor at Nucor commented that it was a great few days of training. Byrd also added, “It raised the awareness level. I've already heard some very positive feedback.”
During training, Sheffield pointed out the Nucor Environmental Policy caught his eye while performing a filtration audit. “Technology and Teamwork are two important pieces of COTTON we can use in Filtration and Contamination Training,” he said. “Training helps us stay on top of new technologies and the classroom helps us build teamwork. It teaches us we can’t do it on our own. Everyone should keep learning until we die. As entrepreneur Ray Kroc said it best—when you’re green, you’re growing. When you’re ripe, you rot.”
