Lubrizol's Bryan Hutton to Speak at the Chlorine Institute Technology Symposium on March 15

Chlorine Institute LogoChemical manufacturing facilities have a tremendous burden of providing safe, economical and environmentally friendly operations. And while the plant engineering community has had extensive training with metallic systems, it’s had limited exposure to the capabilities and performance data of industrial thermoplastics, specifically CPVC. At this year’s Chlorine Institute Technology Symposium, Bryan Hutton—an industrial specialist at Lubrizol—will present on the safe and effective use of thermoplastics in hydrochloric acid applications. He’ll take a micro-look at thermoplastics HCL service and provide attendees with the information needed to evaluate and make key decisions with respect to thermoplastics in chemical process applications.

What to Expect

As part of his presentation, Bryan will address:

  • What is CPVC?
  • The difference in vinyls.
  • Chemical resistance of vinyls in HCL service.
  • Design considerations.
  • Dual-laminate construction scenarios.

If you are attending the Chlorine Institute Technology Symposium, check out Bryan's 30 minute presentation on Wednesday, March 15 at 9:10 a.m. in the Grand Couteau room.
