Description: Pumps are important assets, knowledge about their selection, application, performance curves and upkeep helps organisations to operate them optimally resulting in overall savings and costly downtime. This webinar introduces plant operating and maintenance staff and supervisors to hydrodynamic and positive displacement pumps, parts, internals, bearings and seals and how to get optimum performance from these assets. Knowledge of pumps is valuable for operating staff for contributing to their employer’s economics and profitability. The course will have presentations, exercises, group activities and discussions. The key benefits of this course are getting to know pumps, types, selection, applications, performance curves, trouble shooting, maintenance and repairs, current trends and recent developments, common terminologies, and for developing proper management program for these assets. Plant and pipeline personnel from maintenance, operations, reliability functions and supervisors are encouraged to join this webinar. This webinar is meant for upstream, refining, petrochemicals, chemical and process industries and down-stream storage, pumping and distribution company staff members who work with pumps every day.

Understanding the Polyolefin Business

Time Length: ~90 Min

Description: The Polyolefins (PO) business is a global one, played on a regional scale. POs such as polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) are the most common plastics. Resin production has moved from the regions where technologies were originated and still continue to be developed, to regions with low cost, abundant raw materials and regions with high demand, but with higher cost raw materials. The total cost of producing POs consists of variable costs and fixed costs. The single largest item is the monomer cost, ranging from 80 to 85% of the total costs. There are several routes to ethylene and propylene, the PO monomers. All modern PO polymerization technologies are capable of producing competitive grades but each generic technology has strengths and limitations. PO resins are sold to tens of thousands of processors throughout the world. They range from large multinationals with the most modern equipment to very small family operations.
