Valcor Engineering’s Nuclear Group had great time exhibiting at the AUG/MUG 2017 Joint Conference, which was held January 9-13 in Palm Desert, CA. This conference was a joint meeting of the Air-Operated Valve Users’ Group (AUG) and the Motor-Operated Valve Users’ Group (MUG).

Pictured right, Steve Gatcomb, our Sales & Marketing Director is giving a demonstration to technicians and engineers at the conference.

AUG is dedicated to the development and exchange of technical information concerning the performance, design, testing, and maintenance of air-operated valves, compressed air systems, and fluid leak management programs. The focus of the AUG portion of the conference was geared toward improving efficiency, equipment reliability, and safety in industries such as power generation, chemical, oil & gas, naval, and other industrial process control applications.

MUG is a group of member nuclear utility representatives formed for the exchange of technical information relating to the testing and maintenance of motor-operated valves among the utilities and in coordination with other organizations within the nuclear industry or the increased reliability and safety of nuclear power.
