LDARtools will be in Austin, Texas next week for the 4C Environmental Conference to inspire and inform our friends in the LDAR industry.
From Monday, February 16, to Thursday, February 19, we’ll have several booths set up (Booth 42 and 43) to showcase our products and to answer any questions you may have about our offerings. Our very own Erica Gentry, LDARtools’ Sales and Purchasing Manager, will be in attendance to assist you with your LDAR needs.
Rex Moses, LDARtools’ President and CEO, will also be on hand to give three presentations throughout the week on LDAR topics that are absolutely essential to your LDAR program. Check each summary for a sneak peek:
Cooling Tower Essentials
Tuesday – February 17, 2015 – 1PM to 5PM
In Cooling Tower Essentials, you will learn about various aspects of the cooling tower monitoring requirements found in MACT CC, including a background of the rule, test methods, how to properly implement the rule, and industry best practices. Furthermore, you will learn about new technologies for cooling tower monitoring from LDARtools.
Mushrooms and Gold: Mining LDAR Data to Ensure Compliance, Quality, and Productivity
Wednesday – February 18, 2015 – 1:30PM to 2:15PM
The typical LDAR program generates hundreds, thousands, or potentially, millions of pieces of data. From PPM records to MOC entries, time/date stamps and GPS coordinates, these data not only enable essential regulatory compliance and reporting. They also paint a vivid image of what was going right and what could have gone better.
The challenge is that critical information can be lost in the overwhelming volume of data and, unfortunately, may not surface until it is too late. Like the mushroom picker in the Yukon who became one of the world’s top gold prospectors, LDAR professionals can learn valuable lessons about where the golden data is and how best to find it.
Auditing Using LDARtools Equipment and Software
Thursday – February 19, 2015 – 8AM to 12PM
The historical focus of LDAR Audits on Compliance issues, to the exclusion of productivity and quality, results in value leaks and broken windows. The old perspective was that productivity was the “contractor’s problem.” But accountability, reliability and discipline are seamless disciplines that have a uniform effect on compliance, productivity and quality. The LDAR Audits of the future will be focused not on “what went wrong,” but on “how well did our system for preventing the deviations (i.e. generating quality) work?”
While we have a lot of things going on at the presentation, you definitely HAVE to check out Booth 42 and 43 to see what LDARtools is working on. We have a couple of surprises in store for everybody.
