Specifiers of coatings in the complex wastewater treatment environment can gain valuable help in executing an effective spec in a free upcoming webinar presented by JPCL and SSPC.

 Webinar: Writing a coating spec for wastewater facilities

 Chesapeake Bay Program

Specifying coatings and linings for wastewater treatment facilities can be challenging, as the environment can carry multiple types of service exposures and a variety of substrate types.

Writing a Clear Coating Spec for Wastewater Facilities” will be presented from 11 a.m. to noon EDT March 21.

Coating Spec Challenges

Because of the various waste streams that may be entering a wastewater treatment plant, coating and lining systems may be exposed to multiple service environments. Exposures include atmospheric, gaseous/vapor phase and immersion—and each may involve multiple substrate types.

Coating specifications for these facilities should identify:

• The limits of the work;

• The surface preparation of the various substrate types;

• The coating or lining system to be applied;

• The quality control and quality assurance tests and inspections to be performed; and

• The party performing the tests.

Furthermore, all of the elements must be presented in a clear, concise and user-friendly format. This webinar will walk the specification writer through the steps of developing an effective coating specification.

Participants may register here free.

About the Presenter

The presenter will be Jim Machen, Senior Coatings Consultant with KTA-Tator Inc. Machen has more than 30 years of experience in the protective coatings industry.

In his current position, he performs coating failure analysis and coating condition assessments, and prepares technical coating specifications for a wide variety of industrial structures and exposure environments. Machen is an SSPC Protective Coating Specialist and a NACE-certified Coatings Inspector.

Free Abrasive Blasting Webinar

Another free JPCL/SSPC webinar, “Achieving Efficiency in Abrasive Blasting” will be presented from 11 a.m. to noon EST March 14.

Abrasive blasting is a controlled erosion process where productivity can be measured by how much area is blasted, by what time is expended, and by how much abrasive and energy are used. This webinar will cover all of these metrics, together with a description of control system types, impediments to productivity, fine-tuning a blast system, suggested system set-up, and safety considerations.

The presenter will be Bill Nelson, of Axxiom Manufacturing Inc. Nelson has 22 years of experience in the abrasive blasting industry and has conducted multiple blasting practice seminars and demonstrations.

Participants may register here free.

Registration, CEU Credits

This program is part of the JPCL/SSPC Webinar Education Series, which provides continuing education for SSPC recertifications and technology updates on important topics.

SSPC is an accredited training provider for the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE), and Professional Engineers in Florida may submit SSPC Webinar Continuing Education Units to the board. To do so, applicants must download the FBPE CEU form and pass the Webinar Exam, which costs $25.
