Paratherm Recaps NISTM & ILTA 2015

As we have reported, Paratherm has been busy this spring and summer season participating in two expos, the NISTM and the ILTA.  Both shows serve the needs of those within the storage tank and liquid terminal industry.

NISTM gave many educational forums and resources, reviewing updated regulations and management tips for underground and aboveground storage tank systems. As well as, transferring hazardous materials via rail or pipeline were examined, which was a newer addition to this event. Changes to the  NACE and API Corrosion Protection Reference Standards were greatly laid out in detail and much appreciated.   NISTM provided answers to questions on the most recent issues and also provided attendees a chance to meet with federal regulators, colleagues, and new prospective customers.

For Paratherm, the networking environment of this conference is the biggest takeaway.  We enjoy the opportunity to chat with vendors, customers, and prospects participating in this non-profit organization.

Learning and discussing ideas with people within our field is the biggest value from the NISTM conference.

As for the ILTA, we were pleasantly surprised by the bigger crowds and turn out this year.  ILTA always offers a great networking environment on the show floor, but this year felt a bit more enthusiastic from all the newcomers attending.

Paratherm has attended ILTA for many years now, and we can recall when the conference was held in a hotel, however now it is held at a large convention center. It only leaves us to believe that our industry is growing to new heights.

We are tremendously happy to have been in attendance at both shows, to continually grow our network and connections, and to build and maintain relationships with everyone we have met this year and all past years.

Paratherm Heads South For Both ILTA & NISTM Conferences

Next week kicks off Paratherm’s venturing to two events—both conferences with adjoined trade shows—within the storage tank and liquid terminal industry.

First up is the 2015 NISTM Conference & Tradeshow in Orlando, Florida. This non-profit base organization provides an opportunity for exhibitors and keynotes speakers, to network and learn about the industry’s operation innovations and regulations. It will cover a range of topics from management best practices to new AST operations and environmental topics.

April 27 – 29 2015 Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel – Orlando Florida

Some topics we are looking forward to hearing about are best practices for transferring hazardous materials via rail or pipeline. Meeting and discovering all exhibitors with any new lining/coatings for storage tanks and innovative solutions for corrosion protection. As well as being updated on any changes on the NACE and API Corrosion Protection Reference Standards. An added reference we think will be helpful for those in attendance is the session reviewing what to expect from an AST Compliance inspection.

The conference also gives a glimpse of the new concerns and technology solutions that are coming onto the scene including robotic inspections, 3D laser scans, and top spill, fire, lightning responses and safety practices. We are excited to learn, participate, and see first hand all the latest innovations, standard changes, and new management strategies.
Be sure to look for us in booth 507!

June 1-3, 2015 – Houston, Texas George R. Brown Convention Center

After NISTM, we head over to Houston, Texas for the  ILTA International Liquid Terminals Association conference and tradeshow. This premier event is celebrating its 35th year, and we are happy to contribute towards making it a memorable year. With over forty speakers, thirty-one sessions and six workshops we are ready to contribute and gain many new insights and strategies.
ILTA has exhibitors and speakers from around the world so we know we will find the best solutions, latest equipment and engage in thought-provoking discussions throughout the three days.

We’re excited to gain and bring back with us some new ideas to use within Paratherm to continue to provide the best transfer fluid solutions possible.  If you are attending, be sure to visit us in booth 1001. We would love to connect with as many aligned thought leaders as possible.

March Madness: Two Exciting Upcoming Trade Shows

One of the great things about making products that serve so many different industries and applications is that you get to meet, interact with, and learn about so many different people and companies.

This is especially true when attending industry trade shows—invaluable opportunities to not only get your product out there, but to connect with people and continue to learn more about industry trends, news, and technologies. Therefore, we’re very excited about two upcoming trade shows in March; both, we’re sure, will prove to be successful.

The first show brings us to Baltimore on March 17-19, for the World Of Asphalt 2015. Billed as “The Base of Innovation” for the asphalt industry, it’s a combination of innovation and technology, and in-depth educational opportunities. Of course, it’s also an opportunity for us to exhibit our industry-leading heat transfer fluids for asphalt tanks, mix plants, and storage silos.

These hot oils, designed for the specific needs associated with maintaining asphalt production and quality in plants and tanks, are one-of-a-kind (minimal additives and formulated to withstand temperatures over 600 degrees Fahrenheit!), and we’re very eager to display them at the World Of Asphalt.  Be sure to look for us at booth 1287!

The next trade show brings us to Orlando on March 23-27, where we’ll be connecting and reconnecting with our friends in the plastics industry. At NPE2015 , “the world’s most important plastics trade show and conference of the year,” we’ll once again have the opportunity to learn and interact, while showing attendees how our heat transfer fluids and related services can benefit them.

After all, Paratherm’s hot oils control process temperatures in molding, blowmolding, laminating, thermoforming, extrusion, and more. They solve countless problems while delivering uniformity, reliability, and the highest quality—and are non-fouling and non-toxic. In short, our hot oils for the plastics industry are formulated to make their products and processes better.  View Paratherm’s full NPE directory page at this link:  Paratherm at NPE2015.

March will bring much excitement and great opportunities for us, and we’re looking forward to getting face-to-face with old and new friends at both events. We look forward to seeing you there!

IPPE 2015 Has Arrived!

In manufacturing, it’s not just about making quality products. In order to stay ahead, it’s important to get out there, interact with clients and peers, and stay on top of all industry trends.

This is especially true in the manufacturing of heat transfer fluids. Our products are always on the cutting edge of technology, and innovation drives us. To this end, we feel it’s crucial to try to attend all relevant trade shows and conferences. That way we can not only present our products, but get direct feedback, learn from industry leaders, and work on our goal of continuous improvement.

As a result, we’re extremely excited about the upcoming International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE), taking place January 27-29 in Atlanta.
IPPE is the renowned exhibition that combines The International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo, and International Meat Expo—encompassing the entire protein production and processing chain. The last show saw over 26,000 attendees from around the world; all gathering to view 1,180 exhibitors’ products while learning about the latest technology. In fact, IPPE continues to be the largest assembly of its kind.

For Paratherm, this presents an invaluable opportunity to demonstrate our products and solutions while learning more in the process. Our food-grade heat transfer fluids are used by countless clients throughout the food manufacturing and processing industries, and relied on for their precision, quality, efficiency, and safety.

At the expo, we expect to interact with various members of the food processing industry, from equipment manufacturers to poultry further processors—and many in between. We look forward to demonstrating our unique products and capabilities, our trusted services and safety features, and our proven record of increasing process uptime.

We especially look forward to interacting with our clients—both new and longtime—and sharing what we’ve been up to since the last expo. We expect IPPE 2015 to be the best one yet, and look forward to seeing many of you there!
