W. M. HUITT CO. in partnership with Titan Research present:

1-Day seminar: ASME Bioprocessing Equipment Standard 


Over 60,000 jobs and $60 billion in manufacturing revenue is attributed to pharmaceutical manufacturing in Ontario, and over 96,000 jobs and close to $40 billion in manufacturing revenue is the result of the food, beverage production industry. ASME Bioprocessing Equipment (BPE) Standard has been developed by leading food, beverage and pharmaceutical manufacturers to provide a comprehensive pressure safety and bioburden safety standard to industry. Attendees will learn the ins and outs of the ASME BPE standard, while covering regulatory compliance in relation to high purity piping and equipment, system ratings, testing and inspection requirments. ASME National Board authorized inspectors will learn the steps toward becoming ASME BPE QA system auditors.


W. M. (Bill) Huitt has been involved in industrial piping design, engineering and construction since 1965. Positions have included design engineer, piping design instructor, project engineer, project supervisor, piping department supervisor, engineering manager, and president of W. M. Huitt Co. a piping consulting firm founded in 1987. His experience covers both the engineering and construction fields and crosses industry lines to include petroleum refining, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, bioprocessing, pulp & paper, nuclear power, biofuel, and coal gasification. He has written numerous specifications, guidelines, papers, and magazine articles on the topic of piping design and engineering, as well as “Bioprocessing Piping and Equipment Design – a Companion Guide to the ASME BPE Standard.”
