Organizations of all types today face a daily and growing assault from nation states, lone actors and organized crime. The assailants target everything from trade secrets to proprietary information to reputation damage to critical infrastructure and financial systems. The effects are as far-reaching, disruptive and consequential as physical attacks, and can make or break organizations that are not sufficiently prepared. How can an organization embed cyber security into its suite of core business functions? How can we better protect our globally interdependent systems? What are the rules of engagement for world leaders, and what are the consequences for their foes? In this presentation, one of the world’s most notable security experts, Tom Ridge, the first secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, brings the priorities of cyber security into perspective as only an internationally respected leader can. The evolution of cyber security strategy and diplomacy, what to expect from the next generation of cyber attacks and how to navigate it all mark this compelling, insightful presentation of a growing and global 21st century threat.th
George McAuley, PennDOT Deputy Secretary for Highway Administration, will address the membership for the second consecutive year and highlight key accomplishments and initiatives for the aggregates, concrete and cement industries. Mr. McAuley’s presentation will touch on the importance and efforts of the Quality Improvement Committees (QICs) as a platform for dialogue with industry stakeholders and a place to drive innovation. PACA is privileged to have a total of three QICs in partnership with PennDOT – aggregates, concrete and cement.
Kevin Stricklin, as Administrator Coal Mine Safety and Health for the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) oversees 11 districts with nearly 1,000 employees who enforce federal MSHA regulations in approximately 600 underground mines and 750 surface mines.
Kevin has been closely involved in the implementation of MSHA’s new rule on Examinations of Working Places in Metal and Nonmetal Mines, which went into effect earlier this year. MSHA has utilized a transitional approach to this new rule and Kevin will be speaking to the effectiveness of this approach, any challenges MSHA has seen and additional projects MSHA is undertaking.
Martin ® Roll Gen™ System - Airmatic Inc.
The MARTIN ® Roll Gen™ System is a self-contained, mini 24-volt DC power station that generates enough power to run a wide variety of electronic systems and safety mechanisms. Using kinetic energy from a moving conveyor belt, this system eliminates power production obstacles in remote locations. This system can be used in conjunction with LED lighting, air cannons, belt tracking, belt cleaners and more.
Automated Material Handling Discharge Plow - ASGCO "Complete Conveyor Solutions"
ASGCO's NEW innovation allows you to have more discharge points along the load carrying side of the conveyor belt, releasing material on either side of the belt at pre-designated locations. In some cases capital projects can be avoided by the addition of these discharge points on existing conveyors.
The Discharge Plow is designed to increase a belt conveyor’s material discharge control capabilities and can be automated by either the push of a button or set-up on a timer or PLC system. This increases production and allows the belt to experience a limited amount of stress, eliminating the opportunity for premature wear and stretching. Built of a rugged steel structure the Automated Discharge Plow can hold up in the toughest mining environments.
Next Generation of Electrical Controls for Portable and Modular Crushing and Screening Plants - Kemper Equipment
Easy one touch control for single plant or multi-plant operation. Rugged control module replaces the many failure prone timers, relays & switches. Quick diagnostics & safe 24 volt control circuits. Automation and optimization built in to maximize production. Low cost solution to automation. Common Control Module (CCM) concept. Hardened 24v IFM controller. Stable 24v control power. High output capability to direct fire motor starters (eliminates relays). Sealed from dust, moisture, vibration resistant. Small HMI on panel. Displays status and diagnostic message.
Remote Solutions for Environmental Sampling & Monitoring - Sauls Seismic
Current technology allows for many options where environmental data is collected, either by hand (grab sample), or remotely with data accessible within minutes via the Internet. This presentation covers different types of remote environmental sampling and monitoring solutions.
Automated monitoring and sampling systems for unattended, long-term monitoring include: Water: flow meter, water level, turbidity and pH. Weather: seismic/noise, weather station, rain gauge, dust, barometer, lightning detector and displacement/crack gauge.
All data is accessible via a secure website and available 24 hours a day. Data is easily downloaded to spreadsheets for reporting as needed. Most remote systems have site-specific alerts where emails or text messages are sent to personnel or other interested parties when a pre-set environmental parameter/limit is exceeded.
As many states and municipalities are requiring or looking at implementing more stringent environmental monitoring standards, this presentation will attempt to provide the audience with alternatives that are available for use with regulatory compliance and/or pro-active data gathering.
Master X - Seed 55 Strength Enhancing Admixture - BASF Construction Chemicals
Master X-Seed 55 is a strength-enhancing admixture that improves both early and late-age strength development in concrete, while supporting sustainable construction. Master X-Seed 55 admixture is based on a unique technology that facilitates improved cement hydration, thus enhancing strength development. The strength-enhancing property of Master X-Seed 55 admixture permits a reduction in the total cementitious materials content of given concrete mixture while maintaining compressive strength development equivalent to that of reference concrete with associated benefits in CO2 emissions reductions.
Verifi Concrete Management System - GCP Applied Technologies
For years, ready mix producers have only had insight into the physical properties of concrete at the batch plant and on the jobsite. Verifi® on-board concrete management is an advanced technology solution, providing the ability to measure and manage concrete properties throughout the delivery cycle. Through a series of proprietary algorithms, the Verifi® system calculates the slump and can add water or chemicals as required, while recording all the data. An online portal allows access to the data in real time; while Verifi® continually measures the slump of the concrete and manages the concrete per the specification.
Shrinkage Reducing/Shrinkage Compensating Admixtures - Sika Corporation
Designer, builders and owners have, historically, needed to accept the fact that their concrete will eventually crack. However, with the most recent updates in testing and the subsequent understanding of the mechanics behind concrete cracking, innovations are being put in place as a way to mitigate early age shrinkage cracking and curling in ways that have never before been attainable.
A well-designed and cured mix was once the only mitigation strategy against inevitable shrinkage in concrete. As time progressed, the addition of shrinkage reducing admixtures (SRA's) assisted the process by lessening the total amount of drying / autogenous cracking from occurring.
By contrast, an alternate approach of providing a shrinkage-compensating admixture (SCA) or component (i.e. Type K cement) was incorporated into the mix design to try to alleviate some of the same issues.
The true breakthrough in shrinkage control lies in the combination of shrinkage reduction and shrinkage compensation, together. When used in the right ratio, high levels of shrinkage control, or keeping concrete shrinkage as close to the point of neither shrinkage nor expansion, is now possible. While the two technologies themselves have independently for decades, the synergy these two technologies offer together are a new revelation for the industry.
Impacts of this technology include not only creating more durable and long lasting concrete for existing applications, but also open up new possibilities for the concrete industry. The ability to push joint spacing further, provide some protection against outside elements during placement, creating options for topping slabs and grouts to ready-mix producers, as well as make watertight structures less likely to experience crack-induced leaking are some examples.
Already the point of many discussions within PACA, shrinkage is a hot topic in the concrete community. Shrinkage reduced and compensated concrete will affect every corner of the industry. By using already accepted practices in new ways, the community will be able to address the needs of aging infrastructure, high demand facilities and unique applications.
