This year’s Turbomachinery and Pump Symposia (TPS) will again be hosted in Houston, Texas, where demonstrations on how improved performance and reliability can be delivered for rotating equipment will take place from Sulzer. In addition, industry experts from the company will also be involved with the discussion groups where both visitors and exhibitors can learn more about a wide range of current issues.
The symposia takes place 12th-15th September, at the George R. Brown Convention Centre in Houston, and represent an excellent opportunity for all those involved with rotating equipment to meet with industry leaders and discuss both current and future issues.
As a leading provider of maintenance solutions, Sulzer offers specialised engineering solutions, from component manufacturing to complete turnkey installations. For high voltage motors and generators, Sulzer designs and manufactures new coils that can improve efficiency and reliability as well as increasing output. For gas turbines, Sulzer offers complete overhaul facilities with in-house blade manufacturing and coating that offer improvements in efficiency, output and operating costs.
Sulzer pumps are renowned for high quality and reliability, even in the most demanding environments, and the population of MSD axially split multistage pumps now exceeds 10,000 units, covering applications in product pipelines, boiler feeds, water injection and even the nuclear sector. Further details about this range of pumps and others will be available from the Sulzer team.
Ron Adams, Global Portfolio Manager, Petroleum for Sulzer, is a member of the Pump Advisory Committee and will take part in Discussion Group 01: Monitoring Vibration and Other Critical Machine Conditions on Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th, as well as Discussion Group P11/Panel Session: Subsea Pumps and Drivers on Wednesday 14th.
In addition, Thomas Felix, Analyst Engineer, will be involved with Lecture 04: High Pressure, High Temperature Shaft Seal for a Multiphase Subsea Pump on Tuesday 13th, while Kirill Grebinnyk, based at Sulzer’s Houston Service Centre, will review a case study involving the redesign of a centrifugal compressor impeller by means of scalloping on Thursday the 15th.
TPS provides value for both exhibitors and visitors as it is organised and managed by recognised leaders within the oil and gas, petrochemical and power generation communities. As such it presents an ideal opportunity for face-to-face meetings with experts in their fields, as well as attending a large number of discussion groups led by industry experts.
Sulzer welcomes everyone interested in improving the performance of their rotating equipment or looking for a professional, independent service and maintenance provider to visit the team at Booth No. 2601.
