Sulzer's Pump Technology, Turbine Solutions And High Voltage Coils On Show At Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia 2016


Houston, Texas will again host this year’s Turbomachinery and Pump Symposia (TPS), where Sulzer will be on hand to demonstrate how improved performance and reliability can be delivered for rotating equipment. 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 September 12 – 15 at the George R. Brown Convention Center 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. Sulzer brings its worldwide engineering experience to share with visitors to the symposia on Booth No. 2601, located at the entrance to the main exhibition hall.

As a leading provider of maintenance solutions, Sulzer offers specialized 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.
