Q & A about the seminar

Q: I don’t have any of the noted OEM’s equipment in my UAN /Urea plant, should I attend?
A: Yes. Even if you have others firms pumps/valves/equipment, there are many benefits for attending the seminar. The majority of the information is focused on improving safety, reliability, and maintenance. For example, BHDT valves and Uhde valves are common valves we will address at the seminar. Our focus is the very challenging environment in the fertilizer field, but many topics can apply to other equipment from other OEMs.

Q: My firm uses Uraca pumps, but we are not in the fertilizer business… can I attend?
A: We encourage any users of Uraca, Bungartz, Uhde, BHDT, Kempchen, and other equipment to attend… even if the equipment is not used for ammonia or carbamate service. Most topics will be beneficial to the myriad of other industries using the same or similar equipment. If in doubt, please check with Kim for a copy of the full program. (Call 713-357-5140).
