Principles of Liquid Sampling
28 July 2021

Sponsor: Swagelok

Process fluid sampling plays a critical role in maintaining accurate, profitable industrial processes. Pulling liquid samples is often necessary for validating process conditions, ensuring end products are up to specification, and evaluating environmental emissions. Grab sampling—also called spot sampling, laboratory sampling, field sampling, or closed-loop sampling—is a useful way retrieve these samples, but it can be challenging to execute correctly.

Learn what it takes for operators and technicians to perform liquid grab sampling correctly in our upcoming webinar on July 28. Find out how to avoid the small errors can negatively impact sample representativeness and production efficiency, driving up operating costs. Walk away with a better understanding of:

  • The value of using sample bottles vs. sample cylinders
  • How to maintain a standard liquid sampling process
  • The importance of properly designed sample panels

How Are Your Industry Competitors Navigating the Energy Transition?
30 June 2021

Sponsor: AspenTech

With an increased focus on climate change and energy transition companies are pivoting to more sustainable operations raising questions such as: 


  • What are the top drivers influencing actions to reduce CO2?
  • Which metrics are being used to monitor sustainability?
  • Will your CO2 reduction strategy provide a competitive advantage?
  • Which technologies are you investing in to address greenhouse gas emissions?


These are just a few of the questions that we asked in an online survey to better understand the strategies and actions industry leaders are taking to meet their sustainability goals.  Early results show that half of the companies surveyed believe that investing in sustainability will provide them with new business opportunities.

Please join Lee Nichols, Editor in Chief of Hydrocarbon Processing, as he hosts a lively discussion with Dr. Robert Socolow, Carbon Mitigation Expert, Princeton University, and Ron Beck, Energy Industry Director, AspenTech. Together, they’ll discuss the research findings and provide their own unique insights.

Fundamentals of Sealing Heat Exchangers and Pipe Flanges
10 June 2021

Sponsor: ERIKS

This abbreviated seminar (or webcast) is a distillation of our 7-hour Professional Development Seminar previously conducted at the AFPM Reliability and Maintenance Conference. It summarizes the testing and research that determined the two main reasons that heat exchangers develop leakage, and the materials and procedures that have been developed to offset these problems. It discusses optimal gasket seating stresses, tools for analyzing the operational gasket loads, and also discusses permissible flange conditions. It ends by showing how these developments in heat exchangers can lead to better gasket materials and procedures for pipe flanges.
