2017 AIChE Spring Meeting and 13th Global Congress on Process Safety

Join Gexcon US at the AIChE 2017 Spring Meeting and 13th Global Congress on Process Safety in San Antonio, Texas on March 26-30.

The AIChE Spring Meeting is the year’s key technical conference for practicing chemical engineers. A wide range of subjects relevant to the current needs of industry is covered. Plus, the Global Congress on Process Safety covers the critical needs of process safety practitioners more broadly and deeply than any other conference.

Gexcon US will be presenting on a number of topics, including - deflagration to detonation transitions at large-scale, pool fire modeling for LNG plants, flammability and explosivity of low burning velocity compounds, and investigative findings in regard to a large vapor cloud explosion that occurred at an above ground gasoline storage tank.
