AmeriTAC Schedule of Events

Monday, June 21

Knowledge Roundtable | 1:00 PM - 6:00 pm EDT

  • Emergency Repairs Due to Weather or Other Unplanned Events: The North American Winter Storm Uri (February 13 - 17, 2021) resulted in widespread damage to process plant equipment throughout the central and southern United States. These types of weather events are often complicated by the industry-wide scarcity of replacement components. In MTI member companies, plant personnel are tasked with assessing alternatives for emergency repairs. These repairs may transition from temporary to permanent status. AmeriTAC 135 will feature a roundtable discussion on the materials engineering required to provide safe, reliable, and cost effective solutions during these events.
  • Panelists:
    • Clay White and George Antaki, Becht
    • Nina Young, Chevron Philips
    • Robert Sinko, MTI Fellow
    • Steve Springer, Wehl Consulting
