Fred Passman’s Webinar Recordings

Webinar: Metalworking Fluid Condition Monitoring: An in-depth: 1. The economics of speed, 2. How ATP test differs from Culture tests, and 3. it concludes by amplifying the benefits of using ATP with a Case study. Presented by Dr. Fred Passman of Biodeterioration Control Associates Inc. Recorded Nov. 27, 2012.

Webinar: Real-time Microbial Contamination Condition Monitoring in Metalworking Fluids Value Proposition: Fred Passman discusses the value of time when monitoring and controlling microbial contamination in water-miscible metalworking fluids.

Webinar: Fuel Microbiology Condition Monitoring and Contamination Control Value Proposition: Fred Passman provides compelling economic arguments for including real-time microbiological contamination testing as part of fuel system condition monitoring programs.

Webinar: The Importance of Biological Monitoring in Liquid Fuel Handling: Fred Passman provides an overview of fuel microbiology and the reasons why condition monitoring for microbial contamination is essential.

STLE University MWF Microbiology Webinars: Scroll down this extensive list to find webinars on tribology, lubrication and MWF; including the four MWF microbiology webinars listed below.

The Microbicide Regulatory Roulette Wheel (October 2014): May 2013 was a watershed month for antimicrobial pesticide regulations. The U.S. issued 78FR26978 – a set of revisions to 40CFR158 Subpart W – Antimicrobial Pesticide Data Requirements. The EU issued the new Biocidal Products Directive (BPR); superseding the Biocidal Products Directive (BPD) of 1998. Most recently, in August, 2014, The National Academy of Sciences’ National Research Council decided to uphold US EPA’s Formaldehyde IRIS (Integrated Risk Information System) conclusion that formaldehyde was a known carcinogen. During this presentation, I’ll provide enough information to thoroughly depress all but the most optimistic among the audience.

Emerging Issues in MWF Microbiology: Biofilm Control: Fred Passman presents a discussion of metalworking fluid biofilm fundamentals, impacts and control strategies.

MWF Microbiology – Basics (July 2013) : This webinar is a primer on MWF microbiology. During the program, I provide a basic explanation of what microbes are, the types of damage they can cause if left to grow uncontrolled in MWF and the health risks associated with bioaerosol exposure.

MWF Microbiology – Condition Monitoring (August 2013): In this webinar, I discuss some of the most critical elements of microbiological sample collection, methods that are most useful for microbiological CM, the type and value of information each method can and can’t provide, and best use of data for system management.

MWF Microbiology – Contamination Control (September 2013): MWF microbial contamination control stands on 4 pillars: system design & engineering, industrial hygiene, condition monitoring and treatment. I explain the role each plays and best practices the provide the greatest return on investment and effort.
