Sealing Technology: Success in the Himalayas
Climbing the tops of Himalayan Mountains is a thrilling experience. The elevation at Mount Everest’s base camp is about 5,200 meters. The oxygen content is just half what it is at sea level, making even breathing difficult. If you plan on lingering here, you should go through high-altitude training ahead of time. Otherwise, you face a serious risk of coming down with ‘altitude sickness’. You would expect to run into mountain climbers in this part of the world, but you’ll be surprised to meet the employees of Krones, a leading maker of filling and packaging technology, who occasionally spend time at these high altitudes.
