As a processing professional, you recognize the importance NFPA codes and standards in the work that you do, but do you know all there is to know to ensure safety? Join Megan Thompson, President of ACS Valves as she dives deeper into NFPA compliance, codes and testing; and what it means for such devices. Not stopping at the valve—which is actually considered a fire-safety redundancy—she will review the most important safety elements in the pneumatic conveying line, placing the fire-prevention focus where it needs to be.
