The KLINGER Kempchen “Praxistage 2022” offered a wide range of topics tailored to the needs of plant operators and received high praise from the industry.
When experts provide information about the technical basics of plant components and sealing systems, that is already a good reason to pay a visit to KLINGER Kempchen at their Oberhausen location. Discussions and lectures on practical experiences of plant operators in the process industry were attended by approximately 150 guests at “Praxistage 2022”. The conference “has established itself as a leading event in the field of industrial plant and sealing technology over the past few years,” says Klaus Schonebeck, former Managing Director of KLINGER Kempchen.
