Coping with age or time-related damage mechanisms

07 July 2018

In the June issue of Stainless Steel World Americas, we have an interview with Managing Aging Plants USA Conference Chairman Mr. Kenneth (Ken) Kirkham who is also a Principal Engineer with E2G|The Equity Engineering Group, Inc. With the 2018 Managing Aging Plants USA Conference and Exhibition being held on November 13 and 14, 2018 at the Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria Hotel in Houston, Texas, we sat down with Ken to discuss his personal experiences with aging infrastructure in the process industries.

He also explains why he feels this is an important event for young engineers to attend as he states, “The conference is well attended by senior staff so it is a great place for younger folks to network and interact with more experienced engineers. Sharing information is a great way to educate the younger generation.” 

Ken and the Managing Aging Plants USA Steering Committee are still accepting abstracts for the upcoming conference. Please click here for more information about submitting an abstract.
