Trade Show? No Go?

Posted on December 18, 2009

What is your opinon of the classic Trade Show experience?  Burns participates in various Trade Shows and although there are always some interesting people to meet and facinating things to see, the attendance has been pretty thin.iphex-1.JPGmwfpa-traffic2.JPG


Has the Trade Show style event run out of steam?


Has information accessibility via the WEB transcended the historical value of the Trade Show hands-on experience?


What do you think?


What approaches do you prefer to evaluate products and services and see what's new?

NCSLI and Talkin’ Temperature

Posted on July 28, 2009

Burns Temperature Measurement Experts at NCLSI are making things happen.  Matt Z. wins the Mitutoyo dial caliper by indicating the correct time to within 2 seconds.  matt-wins.JPGThis may be a good opportunity to Stump the Temp Expert on precision, uncertainty, accuracy or on any temperature topic you happen to be dealing with today.


Leave a comment or send a tweet to TempTalk.


How accurate is accurate?  I wonder if Bill or Matt can answer that?

Interphex 2009 preparations….

Posted on March 5, 2009

The activity level around Burns Engineering as we prepare for Interphex in New York is buzzing. interphex09.jpg The story we are excited to share is not about Sanitary RTDs,  electro-polished surfaces, or tri-clamp flanges.  It's more about clean-ability, responsiveness and accuracy.  The real conversation is about temperature measurements that achieve confidence and compliance with an improved understanding of the interaction of the sensor and the process.


That's the stuff that brings calm to the crazy and helps you get in your zone.


The mantra is:  Temperature measurement in a context that the users understand and care about.  Help the process owners be heroes of their process.interphex_home1.jpg


Visit the Burns Interphex page and catch a glimpse of what's happening in booth #3205.  We'd love to chat about making you a hero!


At Burns, Temperature is our Language!


See you at Interphex!


The Burns Team.

Did you grab a bobber at the BURNS booth?bobbers.png


Proof that there is more to producing Ethanol than, Fuel, Feed.


Many of the organizations at the FEW event offered various perspectives regarding some of the controversy in the industry.fagen-logo.jpg

More than a FEW at the FEW Expo

Posted on June 17, 2008

Ethanol and it's expansive support industry at the FEW Event have rushed the gates at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.   They are talking everything from filter bag systems, mixers, bacteria issues, biodiesel, fermentation and thermal oxidizers....   The conversation even dipped into the area of CIP (Clean in Place), posing the question, "Should the Ethanol fermentation process move toward the sanitary guidelines similar to the food and beverage industry?"  This was driven by the co-product "Distillers Grain" entering into the food stream through the animal feed.


The Expo opened Monday evening, breaking the ice with a Grand Opening and massive social in the expo arena.  The spirit in the room was an interesting mix of excitement, passion and commitment to all the good aspects and value of Ethanol as a clean and renewable fuel energy source.  That doesn't mean that there aren't questions and concerns about the interdependency with the other uses of corn, and the economic complexities as the ethanol industry grows....  It sounds like these folks are aware of all of this, and are committed to being good stewards of the resources they consume and at the same time looking for additional Sugar & starch sources to balance the demand for corn.  One alternate fermentation product being discussed is ALGAE!  Now that's being creative!


More later from on the Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo and the passionate folks in attendance.


What are your thoughts and concerns about Ethanol...  Click the comment button above and tell us your thoughts.

Serious work at INTERPHEX08 - really!

Posted on March 28, 2008

...There's a saying that goes something like this...


"Take your work seriously, but don't take yourself too seriously."


PIA & FDAmonkey2.JPG


It appears the PIA agent at Interphex2008 believes that also...


The work at Interphex is certainly important, but the P.I.A agent found that at ROVISYS, a leading provider of process automation solutions, they take their work seriously, yet are willing to have a little fun as well.

Is the PIA on your case?

Posted on March 26, 2008

When it comes to biopharma manufacturing processes, we know you've got a lot to deal with, like the P.I.A., for instance. (NOTE: The P.I.A. – Process Investigation Association – is in no way related to the FDA, they're just meaner!)




So for all you folks at INTERPHEX '08, beware of being served a summons by our very own P.I.A. agent. When you receive your summons, relax and be sure to visit us Burns Engineering at Booth #458 for relief.


We have trained personnel from Burns Engineering standing by; experts in how temperature plays a role in your biopharma process. They are ready to assist you with solutions and relief, not only from the P.I.A., but from the FDA, CFR, GMP, CAPA, P3-A, ASME-BPE Standards and SIP/CIP system validation and certification issues!


So who knows? With all the temperature-measurement solutions he can lead you to, our P.I.A. agent at INTERPHEX '08 could turn out to be your best friend!


(Stay tuned for more reports coming from the show floor of INTERPHEX '08 over the next few days.)

Thinking about MWFPA.

Posted on November 21, 2007

How important is the requirement for No-Animal-Derived materials?


3A vs. the ASME-BPE? What’s your perspective?


Is irradiation effective as a method to insure safety?


International expansion: Your thoughts on maintaining food safety?


The role of temperature control on your CIP/SIP efforts?


Would better temperature-control improve your efficiency?


MWFPAWow. Lots of questions on our minds as we head to Milwaukee next week to participate in MWFPA 2007. The food & beverage manufacturing process is a challenging one. We've learned that by being trusted partners for clients in the food & beverage industry for more than 45 years. So we hope to see some old friends and meet some new ones next week.


But why wait? Let's start the conversation right here: What are the most pressing issues you face in the food & beverage manufacturing process?


Bet we've got a few ideas of how temperature measurement can help!


- Chuck
