— Christiaan Bates
Very knowledgeable on topics and helped me understand the basics and details of pneumatic conveying.
This class gives you the confidence to use a standard “T” in place of long sweeps and high dollar specialty elbows. This information will more than pay for the cost of the class and show attendance.
