TIGG HIRES NEW INSIDE SALES REPRESENTATIVE

TIGG_Nick_KellyOAKDALE, Pa. ― (March 25, 2015) ― Nicholas Kelly joined TIGG February 26 as the company’s new inside sales representative. With a background in chemistry, Kelly is positioned to assist current and future clients to find the most appropriate solutions for their vapor and liquid purification applications using activated carbon and other media.

“My previous experience as a lab technician has helped me understand the theory of how activated carbon adsorbs organic contaminants from air and water,” Kelly said. “Additionally, my interpersonal skills allow me to assist customers and understand their unique needs.”

As part of his TIGG training, Kelly spent his first few days on the job loading activated carbon into purification vessels. He also spent time in the field at a spent media vessel changeout. And, he got hands-on training on the various types of vessels in the company’s inventory. He then received instruction from TIGG’s activated carbon expert on vessel and application design parameters and adsorbent and media selection crucial to recommending the most appropriate solution to clients.

Before he became a TIGG employee, Kelly worked as a chemical technician at a lab where he completed performance and compositional testing on paint and industrial coatings. He acquired his laboratory skills while earning a bachelor of science degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012.

“We are excited to have Nick working for us in a technical capacity,” said TIGG General Manager Anthony Mazzoni. “I’m sure our clients will appreciate his enthusiasm and passion for the industry.”

Since 1977, TIGG has provided a broad range of activated carbon adsorption equipment, systems, filtration media and services for the removal of trace contaminants from air, water, process liquids and gasses. The company is based at its corporate headquarters in Oakdale, Pennsylvania and it operates a 155,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Heber Springs, Arkansas.

Independent Lab Study Shows TIGG Activated Carbon Removes TTHMs

Carbon-Study-Top2SM

A recent study conducted by an independent environmental laboratory proves that TIGG’s 5DC 1230 activated carbon is effective at removing TTHMs from municipal drinking water. The test was sponsored by a municipality that needed to come into compliance with the EPA’s DPB Stage 2 regulations.

Independent Study

The study sponsor historically had high levels of TTHM in its water that ranged between 105 and 171 µg/L. The municipality talked to TIGG about a water purification adsorption system. While some in the industry insist that coal-based activated carbon is the most effective means of removing disinfection byproducts from municipal drinking water, TIGG experts recommended their 5DC 1230 virgin coconut activated carbon.

The municipality had an independent laboratory run a pilot study using a rapid small-scale column test. They used TIGG’s 5DC 12 x 30 NSF activated carbon, which is designed to remove low concentrations of contaminants from potable water. The laboratory found that initial TTHM concentrations of 138 µg/L were reduced to < 1.0 µg/L following treatment with virgin coconut activated carbon. Based on the scale-up of the testing, it was determined that a full scale carbon adsorber would effectively treat TTHMs for 325 days before the bed needed a changeout.

Not only is coconut-based activated carbon effective, it is typically more economical than coal-based activated carbon. The report shows the laboratory’s results over a 24-day period.

TIGG HEBER SPRINGS PLANT ACCIDENT FREE FOR ALL OF 2014

By wearing improved face shields when grinding metal during the tank manufacturing process, TIGG employees have prevented safety hazards caused by flying bits of metal.

HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. ― (February 9, 2015) ― The employees at TIGG, LLC’s Heber Springs, Arkansas manufacturing facility were recognized at a ceremony February 4 for their efforts in completing a full year with no recordable accidents and a zero lost time rate. The 20-person staff engages in heavy manufacturing that includes metal rolling, welding, painting and other potentially dangerous procedures.

As one of his first acts as plant manager, Doug Murray instituted a new safety program in March 2013. “There can always be safety hazards involved with the manufacturing process,” he said. “Our goal is to be 100 percent accident free. If we do that, it means that everyone goes home safely at the end of the work day. Over the course of the last year, the employees made this milestone happen.”

Murray explained that the hazard of flying bits of steel from metal grinders was one of the first issues he addressed. By doubling down on the policy of wearing safety glasses and acquiring improved face shields that better protect the entire head, TIGG employees have worked the grinders incident free since the changes took effect.

TIGG manufactures large, steel tanks and pressure-rated vessels which often weight thousands of pounds. They are moved about the facility by overhead cranes. “It’s just common sense, but we talk about situational awareness every day,” Murray said. “Never walk under suspended loads and always be aware of your surroundings. These are just some of the policies that have eliminated accidents.”

The plant manager partially credits TIGG’s accident-free record to continuously going over safety issues during his morning employee “tool-box meeting.” Early on, it was decided that the yearly cycle would be visually represented by a NASCAR track and weekly progress without incident would see a checkered flag placed in increments around the oval.

A near safety miss would be represented by a caution flag and a red flag would represent a wipeout. This year, TIGG employees crossed the finish line without any flagged accidents. As a reward, they were treated to a steak dinner personally grilled by Murray.

TIGG General Manager Anthony Mazzoni congratulated the workforce and explained why he believes work-place safety is a paramount concern. “Above all, worker safety is the most important metric to measure,” he said. “A safe and healthy workforce translates to well-built equipment and satisfied customers.”

Murray says his stance on safety was formed while working for a previous employer. His former boss talked about an employee who received a large cut on his hand that required stitches. His superior explained that the injured employee would have that scar for life and would think of the company whenever he saw it.

“Safety isn’t just important to our employees, it is important to their families as well,” Murray said .”We recognize that staying safe on the job translates to being happy at home.”
