Centrifugal Compressor Manufacturer to Participate in 2018 Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia

September 17, 2018 – FS-Elliott, a leading manufacturer of API 672, centrifugal compressors, will exhibit at the Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia held September 18-20, 2018 in Houston, Texas. This year's event is expected to draw nearly 5,000 attendees to the 216,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space, with opportunities for over 100 technical sessions from the best minds in the industry.

At booth 1741, experts from FS-Elliott will be on hand to share knowledge and answer questions on every facet of compressed air system operation, ownership, and maintenance. Visitors will also have an opportunity to experience the operation of a centrifugal compressor using Microsoft HoloLens, an augmented reality device. Demonstrations will feature FS-Elliott's PAP Plus compressor, allowing participants to see a 360-degree view of the equipment in operation as well as take the audience through why manufacturers find it easy to maintain.

For those interested in learning how operating conditions affect centrifugal compressors, Alex Curtin, Product Marketing Engineer, and Eric Huss, Senior Aerodynamics Engineer, will be presenting an educational session "Determination of Operating Conditions and the Impact on Centrifugal Air Compressor Selection and Performance" on Tuesday, September 18th, 2018 from 8:45 am to 10:15 am.

This tutorial will provide several examples of how a user's specified conditions impact the selection of the compressor along with discussions of how providing well-realized conditions can help reduce the compressors power consumption. The tutorial will also discuss the flexibility and limitations centrifugal compressor manufacturers have in meeting various operating conditions through the selection of aerodynamic hardware and the inlet control valve including variable inlet guide vanes. The overarching goal is to better educate end users and purchasers of centrifugal air compressors so they can make more informed requests and obtain machinery that more efficiently meets their year-round needs.
