Pneumatics Controls and Maintenance
Owners-Operators and Service Contractors
Start Date: March 1, 2019
Start Time: 7:30 am | End Time: 3:30 pm
In the next few years many service and maintenance technicians will leave the workplace for retirement. This has caused Pneumatic Controls to be back in the limelight with an opportunity for those in the industry to gain expertise in this area. Pneumatics will remain since many facility operations are based on this technology. Hazardous material environments, flammable refrigerants, sensitive areas, and security are concerns the workshop will address. The facilities expert must have the ability to install, troubleshoot, replace components, calibrate and maintain equipment. In addition, decision-makers must analyze cost of repairs, parts and service.
Join us in this new workshop and help to build your pneumatic maintenance program!
