(June 1, 2012) - June is one of my favorite months because we have so many opportunities to talk with our readers and learn more about the topics that interest you most. Managing Editor Lori Ditoro and I will be covering AWWA (June 10 – 14 in Dallas) and EASA (June 24 – 26 in Nashville, Tenn.). Please look for us at these tradeshows. We invite you to tell us what you want to read about in future issues of Pumps & Systems and offer us feedback on articles that we have already published.
Right now, we are gathering information for article ideas and building our editorial calendar for 2013. As always, our readers will help us determine a large portion of the topics we cover. Let us know what’s on your mind.
- What are some of the new technologies that you find intriguing or that make your job easier?
- What industry topics are relevant to your business and processes?
- What are some of the advancements and improvements you are experiencing with regard to energy efficiency, life-cycle costs and pump system optimization?
- What tradeshows do you attend that we may not be covering?
Join our conversation on the Pumps & Systems LinkedIn Group, or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your ideas.
One of our goals for 2013 is to continue to be the most trusted resource for practical solutions for all pump-related issues and concerns. In the coming months, we will introduce an extended Readers Respond section, which will include real-world challenges from our readers with helpful solutions from manufacturers and other industry experts. Email me directly or join the conversation on LinkedIn and tell me about the maintenance, reliability or repair issues that trouble you. We will find experts who can provide the solutions. This problem-solving forum will be featured in the print magazine and on www.pump-zone.com.
Meanwhile, don’t miss this month’s featured section on advancements in water treatment, which covers converting wastewater to consumable water, odor and corrosion control, solids separation and high-pressure reverse osmosis. We also bring you the latest motor and drive technologies, with coverage of vertical motors, harmonics, alignment tolerances and resonance.
