Design & Application of Blast Resistant Equipment Centers Webinar to be Held June 23


Lectrus is hosting a webinar titled, “Design & Application of Blast Resistant Equipment Centers”, on June 23, 2011 at 11:00am ET. This one-hour, complementary webinar provides participants the opportunity to learn about the latest technology to fortify shelters for electrical power and control equipment at hydrocarbon and chemical processing facilities.

This webinar details the technology of prefabricated, metal blast resistant electrical equipment centers. Blast resistant equipment centers safeguard switchgear, motor control, drives, transformers, generators, rectifiers and communications equipment during an event so that equipment can be located closer to the process area. Unlike personnel shelters, blast resistant equipment centers are designed to help eliminate the risk, downtime and costs associated with the loss of critical control systems during an explosion creating side-on pressures of up to 6.0 psi.

According to David Cole, VP of Corporate Engineering for Lectrus, “While life-safety is still the greatest concern, many risk management and safety professionals are targeting this next tier of the risk matrix.”

Webinar participants will review the design, construction and analysis of these new structures and see how the technology was applied in the field at a gas processing facility in the Sahara. Speakers include experts from Lectrus and Baker Engineering & Risk Consultants.
