If you are looking for another reason to attend the upcoming NFPA/FPIC Regional Conference, we have at least three: the exclusive presentations. The virtual event will feature content on a highly requested topic, contamination in fluid power systems. Our speakers vary in qualifications and experience, but each will present engaging information that can apply to any attendee’s business.

  • Mark Barnes is the Senior Vice President of Global Business Development at Des-Case Corporation. His presentation will demonstrate why the ability to control contamination is essential to preserving the lifespan and reliability of your components. One particular contaminant has an especially cryptic impact: varnish. Get the facts on this often-overlooked contaminant and learn how you can prevent and control varnish deposits in your systems.
  • Bhavbhuti Pandya and Kristine Mikulan, both Group Product Managers at HYDAC Technologies, are teaming up to bring attendees the latest insights and case studies on the unique solutions that filtration technology offers. This presentation will explore the gamut of filter types and their particular applications to various equipment. Join us to discover the capabilities of filtration technology and the critical role it could play in system performance, reliability and ROI.
  • Jeffrey Mothersbaugh is an Applications Engineer of Filtration at Bekaert Corporation who will walk us through the challenges of contamination in a crucial application: US Army aircraft. Learn how highly specific tests were able to simulate realistic working conditions and eventually led to the development of more robust filter elements. This presentation offers valuable insights on test methods and filter materials that can be applied to systems well beyond a military setting.
