A Silent Killer is Attacking Our Mills

Mills can ill afford an unscheduled shutdown yet that is what happens when critical equipment suddenly stops working.
So often corrosion on a circuit board is to blame. Thousands of boards are typically found throughout a pulp and paper mill and an environment where corrosion can thrive can be detrimental. Microscopic corrosion can take out electrical boards in a matter of weeks. It is a silent killer that often times goes unchecked.

Consultant, David Zerr, will address this critical issue as part of the Process Control track at TAPPICon LIVE!, October 3-6, 2021 in Atlanta, GA. His presentation, Gremlins Lurking on Circuit Boards, will delve into the root cause of microscopic corrosion on circuit boards and offer various means to mitigate/prevent recurrences.

TAPPICon’s Process Control track includes over 25 expert-led presentations from industry leaders including Georgia-Pacific, International Paper, WestRock, Valmet, Honeywell, ABB, Process Solutions Group, Belville Engineering, Envoy Development, Yokogawa, Advance Industrial Refrigeration, Procemex, ISRA VISION, Miami University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Kemira, Jacobs, AstenJohnson and Event Capture Systems.
