While David SWIGged his way around the bars, focussing his efforts on enjoying himself and talking about Tottenham (Don’t you mean networking – Ed), Jamie was left to do all the graft and fulfil PVL’s objectives in attending the show.
PVL recently attended the Sensing in Water 2011 conference, hosted by SWIG (the Sensors for Interest in Water Group) in Nottingham. This was the first two-day event the not-for-profit organisation had arranged and our representatives, Jamie Clowes and David Almond, took advantage of the show in decidedly different ways!
The event promoted the exchange of ideas between leading organisations within the water systems industry and encouraged discussion on their practical applications and the challenges currently facing the sector. It also allowed industry professionals to keep up to date with technological, sensor and legislative developments which may impact their business. So, while Jamie shared the advantages of PVL’s switches and other technology for measuring and controlling processes in water applications, David could be found telling this bad joke in the bars:
“A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer were all given a red rubber ball and told to find the volume. The mathematician carefully measured the diameter and evaluated a triple integral. The physicist filled a beaker with water, put the ball in the water, and measured the total displacement. The engineer looked up the model and serial numbers in his red-rubber-ball table.
”We are confident David is not going to leave us to pursue a career as a stand up comedian in the near future. However, in his day job, he does present a cogent, if not comic, argument for importance of switches in water engineering systems.
Such technologies play a fundamental role in reducing running costs by enabling processes within the system to be measured and controlled precisely. With our specialist knowledge of products and switch applications, the PVL team is able to offer the best solutions to the problems faced both in waste water treatment and water systems in general.
We found the conference extremely valuable and, by the end, had two contented merry men. If you want to find out more about our switches for water systems and join our band of merry men, give the engineering team a ring on 01892 664499 or visit the web site; www.pvl.co.uk.
