Sulzer will be showcasing its turnkey services and pumping solutions at booth 2023 at the Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia in Houston, Texas. Attendees will be able to meet with Sulzer representatives at the booth throughout the event.

Sulzer’s 3D printing capabilities will be on show, a manufacturing method the business utilises to create high performance components such as turbine blades. 3D printing presents expedited production compared to traditional casting, offering reduced lead times. This is especially important in minimising customer downtime.

Petroleum global portfolio manager for Pumps Equipment, Ronald B. Adams, will also form part of the symposium’s Pump Advisory Committee. Ron will utilise his experience in the industry to impart knowledge during two organised discussions. Monitoring Vibration and Other Critical Machine Conditions takes place in the General Assembly Theater C at 2pm on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Sulzer will also have a compressor rotor on display to highlight its comprehensive maintenance services. The business offers turnkey support for these components, incorporating inspection, design, production of new parts, testing and balancing. The showcase will also feature the first three stages of the compressor rotor coated in Sulzer’s in-house anti-fouling and corrosion protection air spray coating. Sulzer offers a range of in-house thermal and air spray coatings for a variety of applications that benefit from improved durability and performance.

TPS is a major industry event, offering a forum for the exchange of ideas between rotating equipment engineers and technicians worldwide. It takes place 12-14 December at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, TX
