Sulzer is inviting visitors to this year’s event to view and discuss the innovations that are shaping the sector. By attending the technical sessions and visiting stand 1719 at Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia (TPS) 2018, delegates will be able to learn more about Sulzer’s comprehensive offering for pumps and rotating equipment, including the latest innovation in additive manufacturing and digital technologies to improve pump performance.
Sulzer will be exhibiting its uses of additive manufacturing for different applications, including rapid product development and repairs.
Also, it will showcase a range of vertical multistage pumps from the SJD series, designed for the energy industry. The SJD pumps feature a reduced pump length, making the equipment suitable for applications where system constraints, or the presence of liquids operating near their vapor pressure, limit the Net Positive Suction Head.
Sulzer’s BLUE BOX will also take centre stage at the event as the latest tool for improving efficiency in pipeline pumping applications. This solution leverages the IoT to deliver a thorough understanding of the status and performance of pumps in the field, providing predictive forecasting and actionable insights that will improve efficiency and reduce operating costs.
Also of interest to visitors, will be the display of compressor rotor blades. These will feature the company’s specialised thermal and air spray coatings that improve resistance against corrosion and fouling. One example is Sulzer’s HICoat A24 Coating, a metallic-ceramic-polymer coating that has been specifically formulated to provide extended service and prevent loss of efficiency.
Recent investment in Sulzer’s high voltage coil lab and new testing facilities has further streamlined the coil manufacturing process and enabled in-house testing of voltage endurance and thermal cycling. Computer-controlled looping, shaping and consolidation machinery ensures high quality, precision coils for a wide variety of applications, some examples of which will be on the stand.
During the technical sessions, Ron Adams, Global Portfolio Manager - Petroleum for Sulzer and a member of the Pump Advisory Committee, will take part in Discussion Group PT01: Monitoring Vibration and Other Critical Machine Conditions, as well as Discussion Group P11: Cryogenic Fluid Pumping Applications.
On 18th Tuesday, James Goode, Senior Technical Advisor at Sulzer, will participate in the Discussion Group T08: Turbo Expanders & PRTs and the Discussion Group T13: Screw Compressors.
On the same day, Sulzer’s experts Kirill Grebinnyk, Ricardo Guerrero and Eesan Vamadevan will lead the Tutorial TT6: Multidisciplinary Approach to Failure Analysis of Turbomachinery Components.
While learning about Sulzer’s products and services at TPS, visitors will be able to mark the occasion by taking a photo at the booth's selfie station.
