Valcor Engineering’s Nuclear Group recently returned from Austin, Texas, where they exhibited at the AUG/MUG 2020 Joint Conference. AUG/MUG stands for Air-Operated Valve Users’ Group (AUG) and Motor-Operated Valve Users’ Group (MUG). The meeting was held January 13-16 at the Renaissance Austin Hotel.
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 forum 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.
This meeting proves, year after year, to be a great chance to meet and network with professionals in the industry!
