Condensate Polisher Shipped to New Jersey University

Last week, Res-Kem shipped a condensate polisher to a New Jersey university.  This condensate polisher will be installed as part of a new onsite power production facility at the university operated by an independent energy development company.  They will produce power for the university under a DBOM (Design, Build, Operate, Maintain) agreement. Excess power produced gets sold to the PJM.

Practical Safety Training Program

Recently, the entire Res-Kem field team went through an all day practical safety training program.  The training included, Confined Space Entry, LOTO (Lock-Out Tag-Out) and JSA (Job Safety Assessment). This training is integral to Res-Kem's desire to eliminate injuries in our facilities as well as when we are working at or visiting our customer's plants.

 Hands-on LOTO (Lock-Out Tag-Out) Training
This program was a follow-up to our classroom program late last year.  People who attended the training were all of our field sales people, field service technicians, drivers and plant personnel.  The training took place at the Emergency Services Training Center in Sharon Hill, PA.
