The MECS Best Practices Webinars will present sulfuric acid industry best practices focused on a wide range of topics
tailored to Fertilizer, Mining,
and Regeneration producers.
Each month MECS sulfuric acid
experts will take a deep dive into selected topics that are crucial
to operating and maintaining a world-class sulfuric acid plant.
These topics range from plant operational troubleshooting, preventing Hydrogen explosions, to optimizing
the converter system.
Please join us for this informational and educational series that will allow you to learn more about the sulfuric acid process and key activities that you can use to improve the operation of your plant.
Explore best practices relating to converter types, screening practices, catalyst selection, temperature optimization, maintenance inspections and troubleshooting.
