Optimizing Polyurethane Operations

This 3-day seminar is designed to introduce the principles of polyurethane processing with a focus on enhancing the operations and maintenance procedures to increase throughput and reduce machine downtime. The training includes both classroom and hands-on instruction. The hands-on time enables the participant to see first hand what has been discussed in the classroom and actually operate a machine.

Course Highlights:

- Principles of the Poly-Iso reaction sequence
- Principles of nucleation
- Processing Equipment
- High pressure impingement mixing
- Low pressure dynamic mixing
- Machinery component breakdown
- Troubleshooting and preventive maintenance
- Recommended maintenance procedures
- Hands-On Troubleshooting
- Small Class-size
