Discussions at Noria’s “Reliable Plant 2013” Conference to Focus on Helping Plants Improve Productivity and Reliability
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., April 08, 2013 - Driven by the demand to continuously lower overall operating costs, manufacturers around the world are striving to improve process reliability and uptime. One way they are achieving this is by employing advanced filtration technologies such as Pall Ultipleat® SRT filters to improve the fluid cleanliness levels of their systems. During Noria’s 14th Annual Reliable Plant 2013 Conference and Exhibition (April 16th-18th) in Columbus, Ohio, Pall experts will outline examples of the latest technologies for contamination control for hydraulic and lube systems. “Reliable Plant 2013” is an international conference and exhibition for machinery lubrication, oil analysis, and reliability professionals.

"Manufacturers are under tremendous pressure to lower overall cost through improved equipment reliability and productivity gains without sacrificing product quality,” said Larry Smith, president of Pall Machinery and Equipment. “By employing better fluid cleanliness monitoring practices with improved contamination control solutions, manufacturers can achieve these goals and remain competitive in the global economy."
Pall’s Ultipleat® SRT hydraulic and lube filter elements combine innovative stress-resistant media technology and laid-over pleat designs that deliver more consistent performance and longer service life than conventional filters. This enables today's manufacturers to not only improve overall total cost of ownership, but reduce their carbon footprint and waste generation.
