TESTIMONIALS

 

"Over the years we have sent quite a number of our Maintenance and Engineering staff to the Phillips Kiln seminars on rotary vessels.

The PKSE seminar provides our engineers with a better understanding of the static and dynamical aspects of the rotating vessels in our Fertilizer plants. This gives us a sustainable advantage in our quest to optimize our uptime and cost factors.

Besides acquiring in-depth knowledge, it gives the participants the opportunity to meet peers from other companies and to expand their personal network.
Last, but not least, the seminars are very well organized and fun to attend."

“ I have been able to immediately apply what I learnt at the Phillips Kiln Seminar to benefit our business, for example, by making simple adjustments to kiln positioning in order to consume less energy.
We’ve also detected two problems that we have been able to solve straight away, just by changing our daily inspection procedures. ”
