Plant Engineering & Maintenance features article on benefits of grooved mechanical piping systems to shorten shutdown time
The September 2010 issue of Plant Engineering & Maintenance included an article by John MacFarland, Canada national power manager at Victaulic, on how grooved mechanical piping systems help shorten plant shutdowns. In the article, MacFarland details how grooved mechanical systems offer easy access for maintenance and reduce downtime compared to welded systems. The article also discusses how couplings can significantly reduce energy loss attributed to leaks in compressed air systems. Plant Engineering & Maintenance is a Canadian publication that reaches 16,600 plant operating, production, engineering and maintenance managers. It provides information on plant improvements, new technologies and effective strategies for improving productivity.
