Update On United Process Control (UPC) and Your Baghouse in this COVID-19 Environment

Monday, April 27, 2020

Mike Schmidt, VP of Service and Jason Wettstaedt, Senior Vice President, Dry Filtration, wanted to take the opportunity to update you on Baghouse Service & Maintenance during this unprecedented time. We care about our customers’ health and well-being and our employees’ safety and are adhering strictly to Risk Mitigation guidelines set forth by the CDC and WHO. Our entire business is based on your peace-of-mind.

  • The proper use of all PPE is integral to the UPC Service environment. Our service crews and crew members have received COVID-19 specific training and adhere to the proper usage of gloves, safety glasses, and respirators at all times.
  • Safety is #1 and all on-site safety meetings are being held outside with a minimum distance of six feet apart between individuals.
  • We are purposefully limiting the number of service crew members working on a specific task in the same area.
  • We are minimizing congregation including no gathering after work, including in hotel rooms.

Your Peace of Mind.
