Discussions at Noria`s "Reliable Plant 2013" Conference to Focus on Helping
Plants Improve Productivity and Reliability
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y.--(Business Wire)--
Driven by the demand to continuously lower overall operating costs,
manufacturers around the world are striving to improve process reliability and
uptime. One way they are achieving this is by employing advanced filtration
technologies such as Pall Ultipleat SRT filters to improve the fluid cleanliness
levels of their systems. During Noria`s 14th Annual Reliable Plant 2013
Conference and Exhibition (April 16th-18th) in Columbus, Ohio, Pall experts will
outline examples of the latest technologies for contamination control for
hydraulic and lube systems. "Reliable Plant 2013" is an international conference
and exhibition for machinery lubrication, oil analysis, and reliability

Pall`s Christian Bauer, Ph.D., Mrinal Mahapatro, Ph.D., and Eric Krause will
present four case studies highlighting contamination control, filter
performance, cleanliness monitoring, and system performance:

       •    Expectations vs. Reality: How Well Does Your Filter Perform?                      
            Christian Bauer, Ph.D., Tuesday, April 16, 1:30 PM                                
       •    Case Studies in Contamination Control at Mine Sites                               
            Christian Bauer, Ph.D., Wednesday, April 17, 9:00 AM                              
       •    Monitoring Cleanliness Levels in Hydraulic Systems with the Mesh Blockage Method  
            Eric Krause, Wednesday, April 17, 4:30 PM                                         
       •    Oil Monitoring as a Tool to Optimize Hydraulic/Lubrication System Performance     
            Mrinal Mahapatro, Ph.D., Thursday, April 18, 8:00 AM                              

"Manufacturers are under tremendous pressure to lower overall cost through
improved equipment reliability and productivity gains without sacrificing
product quality," said Larry Smith, president of Pall Machinery and Equipment.
"By employing better fluid cleanliness monitoring practices with improved
contamination control solutions, manufacturers can achieve these goals and
remain competitive in the global economy." 

Pall`s Ultipleat SRT hydraulic and lube filter elements combine innovative
stress-resistant media technology and laid-over pleat designs that deliver more
consistent performance and longer service life than conventional filters. This
enables today's manufacturers to not only improve overall total cost of
ownership, but reduce their carbon footprint and waste generation.
