Hot on the heels of November 2020’s ‘Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution’, this year will see the UK Government enshrine in law the world’s most ambitious climate change target, cutting emissions by 78% by 2035 compared to 1990 levels. In line with recommendation from the independent Climate Change Committee, this would bring the UK more than three-quarters of the way to net zero by 2050. Against this backdrop, the presentation will look at current emissions and energy use, what is currently being done to to reduce these levels and how the industrial sector can step up to the challenge with more efficient manufacturing practices and higher recycling rates, along with increased use of hydrogen, renewable power and carbon capture.
Unexpected machine downtimes are a nightmare for every production manager, especially in large plants that produce around the clock, such as mines, foundries, or rubber compound plants. Every hour a machine is not running is linked to extremely high costs. Forward-looking maintenance is a reliable method of reducing expensive plant downtimes in practice.
This talks looks at redesigning maintenance using predictive analytics solutions and in particular how predictive analytics works with ODiN.
The presentation will look at the correct use of PPE in the industrial environment and outline the main legislation businesses need to conform to.
Discover what trends are shaping the asset management sector in 2021. The third edition of the Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Trend Report will be launched in September, and here we give you an overview of the key findings and the trends that are changing the field. Are uptime, cost control, safety and knowledge retention still top priorities for asset managers across sectors, or have Ultimo EAMnew trends emerged? What impact has the Covid pandemic had on maintenance? Which are the most applied maintenance strategies, and how do you leverage software to optimise maintenance? What steps do organisations take to ensure better safety and compliance? Stay on trend - join us to find answers to these and many other questions.
Liquid pumps and related equipment are the single largest user of electricity in industrial and commercial applications. In the UK this amounts to 45TWh annually which is equivalent to the annual electricity use of 12 million homes.
The UK Government has announced a ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution covering clean energy, transport, nature, and innovative technologies. The blueprint is intended to allow the UK to wipe out its contribution to climate change by 2050. However, the contribution of pumps to global warming is not being addressed in this ambitious plan, despite the UK’s past commitment to tackle the issue. This is a serious oversight, given the high energy use of pumps and their critical role in maintaining our industrial base and standard of living.
Since the financial crash in 2008, productivity in the UK has pretty much flatlined. While there are many underlying factors influencing the productivity gap many economists have identified a comparative lack of investment in the latest technology and research and development as a major contributor. The presentation will look at how investing in and implementing automation can increase productivity by freeing up workers from repressive tasks, enhancing output quality, and increasing throughput.
In a world of constantly changing legislation and standards, BCAS plays a crucial role in driving progress in the compressed air industry. The Association offers a huge range of fact sheets that cover essential information ranging from subjects such as calculating the costs of compressed air, compressed air safety, hazardous waste, air receiver legislation, pipe martial section, and many more. The presentation will take some of the areas that receive the most enquires and run through the information available.
