    Paul Dufresne announces the formation of his new company – Reliability Playbook – through which he offers his expertise to manufacturing facilities around the world, helping them develop and implement world class maintenance and reliability programs.

    Umatilla, Fla. (PRWEB) June 27, 2017

    Following 28 years of experience in maintenance and reliability roles in the U.S. Military and at Georgia Pacific, Trico Corporation and Koch Industries, Paul Dufresne has started a new venture as president and CEO of Reliability Playbook. With his own company, Dufresne will be able to offer his services to manufacturing facilities around the world that are looking to grow and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

    Incorporating knowledge from his military and business careers and his extensive field experience, Dufresne uses a hands-on approach to help his customers develop and implement world class maintenance and reliability programs.

    “We help facilities understand their losses and identify their defects,” Dufresne said. “Once you do that, we can put plans in place to correct the defects, mitigate the losses and improve the bottom line.”

    Reliability Playbook will work with any company needing its services, whether they are starting from scratch or already have a program but it isn’t giving them results they desire.

    “It’s all about helping folks figure out their roles and responsibilities, and getting everyone rowing in the same direction,” he said. “We offer coaching, mentoring, auditing, training. It is not a canned approach; every facility is a little different. The first step we take is to understand how they operate, their culture, and what kind of world they’re in, and then help them develop a custom playbook to give them a competitive advantage in their industry.”

    With companies running leaner, Reliability Playbook offers a valuable service in helping them free up manpower. Optimizing lubrication routes is one of the company’s specialties. Dufresne is proficient with MAINTelligence and Lube-It software and can help companies either get started with them or make better use of them. In his experience, companies often collect data but don’t always know what to do with it. That’s where he comes in.

    “People are just executing their routes, but what value is coming out of the data they are collecting?” Dufresne said. “I spend a lot of time helping with this. I look at their inspection history, and I can advise them on safely reducing the number of times they do inspections.”

    Reliability Playbook also offers companies assistance with management systems, organization, production, loss accounting, and problem solving. Dufresne sees a huge opportunity for companies to increase production and grow their bottom line by working with him.

    As an enlisted soldier in the U.S. Army, Paul served six years of active duty and four years of National Guard duty. After completing his college education, he served an additional four years of active duty as an officer in the Army’s Armor Branch. He spent the next several years in the corporate world helping design and implement predictive maintenance programs and serving in a variety of roles in training, maintenance management and reliability leadership. In 2013, he received the Senior VP Award for Reliability from Georgia Pacific.

    Paul has experienced numerous successful results along the way, including:

    •     Achieving and maintaining maintenance readiness of over 95 percent in his battalion while serving as maintenance officer.
    •     Rebuilding the lubrication and predictive maintenance program at a Georgia Pacific mill, achieving world class reliability standards and increasing uptime by 5 percent annually across all five paper machines within 18 months of starting.
    •     Writing GP’s lubrication standards in 2010 that are still in corporate-wide use today.
    •     Breaking every production record in the history of the business during his three years as corporate reliability and engineering manager in GP’s oriented strand board business.
    •     Creating and strengthening maintenance and reliability programs – achieving world class results – at Fortune 500 companies in nearly every type of facility and industry from refineries to biopharmaceutical to paper and chemical plants.
    •     Rebuilding a team and instituting process improvements at a corporate facility that led to a $60 million improvement in production.

    Paul holds credentials through Society of Tribologist and Lubrication Engineers as Certified Lubrication Specialist (CLS); through Society of Maintenance and Reliability Professionals as Certified Maintenance and Reliability Professional (CMRP) and Technician (CMRT); through the Association for Facilities Engineering as Certified Plant Maintenance Manager (CPMM); and through the Association of Asset Management Professionals as Certified Reliability Leader (CRL). He is certified in predictive maintenance technologies such as vibration analysis and thermography, and has written several articles and technical white papers. Recognized as an expert in the subject matter, Paul is a frequent presenter at industry conferences.

    Tel-Aviv University and NCSU study determines PetPace smart collar pulse measurement is highly accurate.

    BURLINGTON, Mass. (PRWEB) June 27, 2017

    A new study conducted by the Biomedical Engineering Department at Tel-Aviv University, in collaboration with North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine determined the pulse measurements recorded by PetPace smart collars are highly accurate.

    The researchers compared the PetPace pulse data to standard medical electrocardiogram (ECG) and pulse oximetry devices used to monitor dogs and cats undergoing surgical or imaging procedures. A total of 33 dogs and cats of various breeds, sizes, ages, gender and medical conditions were evaluated for an average of over 130 minutes each.

    “The data demonstrates a very high agreement between the PetPace collar and an EKG and pulse oximetry monitors of 94.3 percent,” said Prof. Mickey Scheinowitz, chairman of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Tel Aviv University.

    “This study validates the accuracy of the PetPace pulse data for dogs and cats, and the difference detected is clinically insignificant,” said Dr. Duncan Lascelles, professor of surgery and pain management at the College of Veterinary Medicine, North Carolina State University.

    The study showed that the difference between PetPace and ECG and pulse oximetry pulse rate measurements was a mere 5.7 ± 11.4 percent (mean ± standard deviation).

    “This academic study confirms previous results we found through our internal research. The PetPace system provides accurate and reliable data for the health monitoring of dogs and cats,” said Dr. Asaf Dagan, chief veterinarian at PetPace. “Other studies are underway to officially validate all PetPace parameters under various situations and medical conditions.”

    The PetPace Health Monitoring Solution uses an array of non-invasive sensors to measure a pet’s temperature, pulse, respiration, activity levels, calories, positions and heart rate variability. PetPace allows pet owners to set and track activity and calories goals, while remotely monitoring vital signs and other health attributes, sending immediate alerts, when necessary, directly to a smartphone.

    Health data recorded by the collar can also be shared with a pet’s veterinarian, allowing them to better understand a pet’s overall health or receive notifications in an emergency.

    Additionally, PetPace smart collars are a perfect tool for veterinary hospitals, giving caregivers the ability to quickly measure a patient’s vital signs. Veterinarians can even utilize PetPace devices to remotely monitor their patient’s side effects and recovery while they are home with their owners.

    For more information about PetPace or PetPace products, please visit http://www.petpace.com.

    About PetPace

    PetPace creates innovative technology that delivers peace of mind to pet owners. Our smart IoT pet collar continuously monitors the wellbeing of elderly, sick, healthy, and at-risk dogs and cats, alerting caregivers remotely and immediately of changes in key health parameters. In the home or in the clinic, PetPace leverages data gathered non-intrusively from onboard passive sensors and advanced cloud-based analytics to keep all pets healthier and happier.

    Founded in 2012 and privately-held, PetPace is headquartered in Israel, has a U.S. office in Burlington, MA, and a global sales presence. For more information, please visit http://www.petpace.com.

As the largest lightning protection company in the Permian Basin, Petro Guardian offers cutting edge inspection solutions.

    Midland, Texas (PRWEB) June 27, 2017

    Petro Guardian is pleased to announce the official launch of Omnispection®, inspection and preventative maintenance software. Omnispection® is Petro Guardian’s advanced software for the accurate and efficient inspection and monitoring of tank batteries, oil and gas assets, and oilfield structure for lightning and static protection. As the largest lightning protection company in the Permian Basin, Petro Guardian offers cutting edge inspection solutions.

    An on-site inspection methodology, using software to record inspection results, Omnispection® features a built-in tracking system that allows the software to target changes in the lightning protection and static mitigation system. When it is time to update an operator’s lightning and static protection systems, a notification is issued for site repairs or additions to ensure an immediate response. With Petro Guardian inspection and maintenance software, the production site remains fully protected.

    “We have been developing this software system for more than two years to address our customers’ need to maintain the integrity and functionality of their lightning protection systems,” says Rob Morris, Petro Guardian CEO. He continues, “The response from our customers has been outstanding; they immediately realize the benefits of long-term safety and integrity for their lightning protection systems.”

    • Petro Guardian recommends, at a minimum, one inspection per year for each facility equipped with lightning protection systems.
    • Ensure nothing has been removed, damaged, or corroded since the time of installation.
    • Each inspection includes an on-site visit using Petro Guardian’s Omnispection® software to check each component of the lightning protection system based on the site compliance plan.
    • Ground rod resistance readings are recorded, photographed and monitored over time to ensure the integrity of the system.
    • Each inspection comes with either a pdf report of all compliant and non-compliant issues documented or full access to your system dashboard, which can be used to generate reports and work orders after an inspection has been conducted.

    Petro Guardian engineers systems to protect oil and gas assets from damage caused by lightning strikes and static discharge. In addition, Petro Guardian works with operators to develop a standardized plan for preventing ignition from lightning strikes and static discharge. Each plan incorporates and complies with standards for lightning protection and static mitigation, including NFPA, IEEE, API, and IEC.

    As NY Times reports oil volatility, Peak Energy continues its commitment to growth in the Illinois Basin.

    Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) June 27, 2017

    The recent story in the NY Times "Oil Prices: What to make of the Volatility" paints a clear picture of the current state of the Oil business. After climbing to a recent peak of $54.45 per barrel in February, the price of U.S. produced crude has fallen to $43.23, according to Bloomberg data, putting it back in bear market territory and at its lowest level since August. Despite the market volatility, Peak Energy Company continues to grow and is committed to investing in the region during the downturn, recently acquiring multiple oil and gas producing leases from American Oil Investments, Inc., with additional acquisitions in the pipeline scheduled to be closed in 2017.

    "We are built to not only to survive but to thrive in this economic environment, our business model is designed to be profitable in bear and bull markets," said Peak Energy President, Todd Allen "Once in a generation we see an opportunity like this, to acquire quality assets at a discount."

    Despite the CNBC commentary and market concerns, many analysts believe the future of oil is bright. The current administration supports industry efforts to build more pipelines and open up more federal lands and deep-water prospects for drilling. President Trump also says he would like to lower regulatory burdens on the industry and has expressed little sympathy for the Paris climate accord, which attempted to lower global dependence on fossil fuels.

    At the same time, the President is considering re-instituting sanctions on Iran that could constrict Iranian exports. Since Iran is a major exporter, that could mean hundreds of thousands of fewer barrels a day on the world market, lifting prices for US Oil. As a well-capitalized company in the Illinois Basin, Peak Energy will continue to support local communities in troubled times, preserve American jobs and help the people that depend on US Oil production.

    About Peak Energy Company

    Canadian Zeolite Announces Positive Results on Two Year Study for the Remediation of Potash Brine-Impacted Groundwater

    Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) June 28, 2017

    Canadian Zeolite Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: CNZ) (OTCQB: CNZCF) (FSE: ZEON) is pleased to announce that a two year study conducted by the University of Saskatchewan in partnership with PotashCorp, Agrium and Mosaic using the Company's Bromley Creek zeolite was successful in remediating potash brine-impacted groundwater. As a part of the study, batch adsorption experiments were conducted with the Company’s clinoptilolite zeolite, which was enhanced through varying levels of acid treatment. The study showed that acid-treated zeolite, exhibited a dramatic ability to remove sodium from brine-impacted groundwater and synthetic saline water which can be a detriment to plant and aquatic life.

    Potash mining operations produce substantial quantities of tailings, composed of potash brine which is highly saturated with sodium. Clinoptilolite-rich zeolites are considered natural remedial agents due to their microporous structures which exhibit high absorption abilities. This study has demonstrated the ability of our Bromley Creek zeolite to act as a highly effective natural remedial agent for sodium absorption and pH neutralization.

    Mr. Ray Paquette, CEO says, “Canadian Zeolite is extremely pleased with the results and findings of this study which validates our Bromley Creek zeolite for yet another significant opportunity. We wish to thank the University of Saskatchewan for conducting and compiling the data and PotashCorp, Agrium and Mosaic for providing the funding support for this study. The knowledge gained in working with modified zeolites during this study will allow us to expand our experimental research into the many new potential uses for our Bromley Creek zeolite.”

    The full research report is available at: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0011916417300395

    Report identifies valuable insights for financial institutions through an analysis of consumer complaints to the CFPB.

    New York City, NY (PRWEB) June 28, 2017

    PerformLine, the leading RegTech company that delivers automated compliance solutions, has released its 3rd annual Complaint Signal Risk Report, an analysis of data from the Consumer Complaint Database and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) data from July 2011 to March 2017. The report uncovers observations about the nature of recent complaints, company responses, and CFPB enforcement actions, in order for financial institutions understand their risk and to improve their regulatory compliance efforts, customer experience, and overall operational effectiveness.

    The June 2017 edition of the Complaint Risk Signal Report uncovers new trends in consumer complaints including those by older Americans and service members, and details the threshold of complaints that puts companies at risk of being fined by the CFPB, the potential amount in monetary liability, and how untimely company responses to complaints increase potential risk for a company.

    Key findings from PerformLine’s Complaint Signal Risk Report include:

    •The rate of consumer complaints continues to rise at a steady pace, partly due to the CFPB’s ad and social media campaigns that have been encouraging consumers to submit complaints.

    •Once companies reach the threshold of 2,000 consumer complaints, the probability of being fined increases to 43%.

    •A company that fails to respond to 100 or more complaints in a timely manner, or closed over 100 complaints with monetary relief, increases its chance of being fined by 42%.

    •Complaints from Special Groups, including older Americans and servicemembers, are monitored closely by the CFPB and could bring about additional risk.

    “We’ve seen that understanding consumer complaints provides a competitive advantage for those companies who monitor them,” said Alex Baydin, CEO of PerformLine. “The insights provided by our Complaint Signal Risk have been so well received that during our recent compliance and RegTech conference COMPLY2017, we announced that we are now bringing this business intelligence data into the PerformLine SaaS platform to provide companies with unparalleled insights into consumer complaints.”

    The PerformLine Complaint Risk Signal dashboard is currently in beta with existing PerformLine clients and will be available in Fall 2017. With insights into complaint data within the PerformLine platform, chief compliance officers and their teams now have visibility into how complaints are trending across multiple data points, trends in each product category and see their stack ranking against competitors.

    For more trends and insights from the June 2017 Complaint Risk Signal report, download here: http://lp.performline.com/cfpb-risk-signal-report. For more information on the Complaint Risk Signal dashboard within the PerformLine platform, contact David Morgan at David[at]PerformLine[dot]com.
