25 Strategies For Managing Multigenerational Employees
13 Oct 2020 at 12:00am
Generational perspectives seem to conflict on every point. You try and try, but all the management strategies you learned over the years do nothing to reconcile these differences.
The good news is that generational differences don’t have to be so challenging.
Simple changes in perspective can turn differences into strengths. When managers and organizations harness this power, they become more successful than ever before
In fact, the manager who is able to bridge generational differences often becomes an organization’s greatest asset.
To help you master your multigenerational leadership skills, I’ve collected 25 of my most useful, actionable multigenerational management tips in one place. Each suggestion falls under one of five categories: Mindset & Office Culture Assignments & Project Delegation Technology & Office Communication Mentoring & Feedback Benefits, Recruiting & HR Guidelines
Keep this practical guide on file and reference it whenever you face a multigenerational challenge.
Why Coated Metal is Replacing FRP Duct on Wastewater Odor Control Systems
12 Oct 2020 at 12:00am
Wastewater treatment plants are discovering a superior odor control exhaust duct technology which delivers significant cost savings and fire safety to the facility.
With increasing pressure on wastewater treatment plants to control odors, Fab-Tech is seeing increased interest in applying its technology to lower costs and improve performance and safety in WWTP odor control applications.
This technology has been widely adopted by the semiconductor industry to handle highly corrosive process fume exhaust and is now being deployed in the wastewater treatment industry to improve foul air containment, reduce construction cost, eliminate maintenance costs, and improve worker and fire safety vs FRP Duct.
This webinar examines the direct advantages of PSP over FRP duct and demonstrates how wastewater treatment facilities like DC Blue Plains and King County Brightwater optimized duct installation, lowered total cost of ownership, reduced insurance premiums and increased corrosion resistance of their odor control duct systems.
PermaShield Pipe™ (PSP®) reduces the total installed costs (material+labor) of WWTP odor control systems, is easy to install in ALL weather conditions, and eliminates 100% of lifetime maintenance compared to alternative products.
It's often the case that companies claim to be 'the worldwide leader' in their given market. Fab-Tech is the worldwide leader in coated metal corrosive fume exhaust duct, having invented the technology for semiconductor facilities and having nearly 100% adoption in the industry vs FRP duct.

The PSP® BIM Revit Plugin streamlines design time and improves quality control and assurance on any corrosive fume exhaust or wastewater odor control system layout; providing engineers or installing contractors with an accurate and buildable exhaust duct design every time.
PSP® fume exhaust duct is already known to improve build schedules by reducing installation labor compared to FRP duct. Now with the release of the PSP® BIM Revit Plugin, engineers and installing contractors can benefit from vastly improved design schedules as well. Fab-Tech's PSP® BIM Revit Plugin provides our round-duct catalog in an electronic format that engineers can use throughout the entire coordination and routing process.
The intelligent models that are made possible through Revit families means that exhaust duct layouts have fewer design inconsistencies, fewer clashes and greater savings in construction time and cost. Capable - project support for 2D spooling, BIM and 3D modeling applications. Convenient - pre-loaded with system family preferences for turn-key design. Comprehensive - improves QC with error reporting, streamlines tracking with part number generator and submits the generated part numbers to Fab-Tech's inside sales department for easy quote submission. Complete - produces a complete model of the exhaust duct system with smart tracking of all parts and fittings from layout to order summary.
The PSP® BIM Revit Plugin is:
This 14 minute video demonstrates how from preliminary concept to final design layout, the PSP® BIM Revit software streamlines your design time and improves quality control on any corrosive fume duct/pipe or foul air system design package. This software not only reduces costs by eliminating the need to manually generate cut-sheets but also helps keep the project on schedule by cutting down on the time required to manually review layouts.

3 Oct 2020 at 12:00am
A 30-year journey of practical experience and lessons learned
New value is currently being realized by owners who maximize the use of specialty, electrical distribution, and innovative engineering design. The first step in achieving new value is utilizing a plant’s existing electrical infrastructure to provide temporary power. This approach alone can provide measurable:
• Cost savings
• Reliability improvements
• Electrical safety
• Emission reduction
Read Uniform Plumbing Code for Free
1 Oct 2020 at 12:00am
The main aims of the Uniform codes are:
- To ensure that planners, administrators and plumbers develop the required competency to ensure that the codes are applied and upheld;
- That standards are set to ensure that plumbing assemblies, materials and technologies are safe and effective;
- To ensure that plumbing installations meet these standards;
- To ensure safety and effectiveness continuously through the proper maintenance of these installations.
The 2021 edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC©) represents the most current approaches in the plumbing field. It is the sixth edition developed under the ANSI Consensus process is designated as an American National Standards by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Contributions to the content of this code were made by every segment of the built industry, including such diverse interests as consumers, enforcing authorities, installers/maintainers, labor, manufacturers, research/standards/ testing laboratories, special experts and users.
The UPC is designed to provide consumers with safe and sanitary plumbing systems while, at the same time, allowing latitude for innovation and new technologies. Key changes to the 2018 UPC include:
- New product standards for plumbing fixtures such as wall hung fixtures, waste fittings, lavatories, showers, bathtubs and whirlpool bathtubs, flushometer valves, sinks and eyewash stations; and signage for single use toilet facilities (Chapter 4)
- New peak water demand method and calculator for estimating demand loads for water supply of single- and multi-family dwellings with water conserving plumbing fixtures, fixture fittings, and appliances (Appendix M)
- New Appendix N – Impact of Water Temperature on the Potential for Scalding and Legionella Growth
