 About the Virtual Seminar

 

Virtual Seminar Date:

September 22, 2020
1:00 - ~3:00 PM Eastern Time (US)

Seminar Description:

This seminar educates participants on the theory and operation of electrostatic precipitators (ESPs).

Attendees will explore factors affecting ESP performance, such as normal maintenance techniques, normal maintenance procedures, and current trends in energization of precipitators. Participants will learn methods to improve performance of existing precipitators to meet regulatory compliance goals. In addition, attendees will earn 0.2 CEUs for attending this virtual seminar.

Who Should Attend?
  • Plant managers
  • Plant engineers
  • Electrical engineers
  • Performance engineers
  • Maintenance personnel
  • Electricians
  • Consultants
  • Purchasing personnel

Earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) 

Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) is offering each attendee the opportunity to earn CEUs through The University of Akron. A CEU is a unit of credit for participation in an accredited program designed for professionals with certificates or licenses to practice various professions. One contact/training hour equals 0.1 CEU.

This seminar is worth 0.2 CEUs or 2 PDHs.

Speakers

Rob Hummell

Rob was honorably discharged from the United States Navy in 1990 after graduating from several technical schools with specialized training in electronics, nuclear prototype instructor, nuclear power, and submarines. He has 28 years of experience in the design, installation, operation, and troubleshooting of electrostatic precipitator control systems and has been awarded four U.S. patents in recognition of his commitment to advancing innovative ESP technology development.

Rob frequently presents at technical training sessions, leading discussions that encourage the sharing of knowledge and valuable, actionable ideas among participants.

John Knapik

Mr. Knapik has been serving as an Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) Applications Engineer at B&W, for the last 30 years. He has 39 years of experience in that field. He has spoken once or multiple times on ESP topics at the Western Canada BLRBAC Conference; Eastern Canada BLRBAC Conference; MEGA Symposium; Energy, Utility, Environment Conference (EUEC); PRB Coal Users Group; Catalytic Cracker Conference; Western Regional Boiler Association; American Forest & Paper Association Conference; and at the International Conference on ESPs. In addition, he has spoken at the Reinhold ESP Users group seven times. He has authored many technical papers on electrostatic precipitators, two published in “Power Magazine.”

He has served as a consultant on precipitator performance and operations to the Electric Utility, Paper, Refining, Cement, and Mining industries. He is known as an expert in terms of “reading the ESP” through a close examination of the automatic voltage control readings. In addition, he is able to easily convey, in simple laymen’s language, “What is going on and why.” He has conducted hundreds of ESP training courses for all industries over the last 31 years.
