Using Surface Analytics For Determination of Aged Cleaner Baths
Presented by: Mike Valenti, Director of Technology, Hubbard-Hall & Bill Buschle, Sales Director, Brighton Science
June 7th, 2022 @ 9:30 AM - 10:00 AM
A common question asked by metal finishers is….How do I know when my cleaner bath is aged, and no longer effectively cleaning parts?  Over the years, shops have used methods such as an oil split test, titration, conductivity, and other wet chemical methods.  Learn how measuring the surface characteristics of parts in real time, can give a more accurate and meaningful prediction of when the cleaner bath is no longer effective.

7 Things I Wish I Knew About Wastewater Treatment
Presented by: Robin Deal, Product Leader, Aquapure, Hubbard-Hall
June 7th, 2022 @ 2:30 PM

With employee turn over at an all time high, plant production increasing, and EPA tightening regulations, how can an industry prep for all the changes? This conversation will center around 7 things that can help with the changes our industry is facing, along with some pretty common questions for how to handle system issues.

If you plan on expanding your facilities production capabilities, or adding new processes to your product offerings, how can you ensure your wastewater system is adequate for the job of processing the increase of wastewater it will see? Do you include cost to treat the wastewater in pricing for your finished product? How do you calculate the cost of water in the manufacturing process? Your cleaner produces a lot of foam when it is dumped into wastewater. What issues does that cause? How can you prevent this? Other common concerns with wastewater treatment include chemical dosing, flocculation, and containment, to name a few.

Join us as we look at some of these issues as they happened, how the situation was handled, and how things could have been prevented.
