Sulzer has announced its attendance at Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS) 2022, showcasing its engineering services and technical courses. ATPS takes place from May 23 – 26 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in Malaysia, with Sulzer experts available on Booth 702 to discuss how its network of service centers can improve the availability and performance of critical rotating equipment.
During the exhibition, Sulzer is focusing on its turbo and pump services, which are delivered from a global network of localized service centers, with 16 in the Asia Pacific region. This ensures a fast response to any customer requirement, maximizing equipment uptime and safeguarding profitability. In-house repair and upgrade capabilities are further supported by dedicated field engineering teams with decades of application experience.
Boosting pump knowledge
At the pre-event Short Course Day, the Sulzer Academy will be welcoming attendees to its acclaimed one-day training course: Pump Mechanical & Hydraulic Fundamentals. An introduction or refresher for engineers, the course covers subjects such as pump hydraulic fundamentals, operating principles, system design and cavitation prevention. The session will be conducted on May 23 by Nick Ahrens, Sulzer’s Senior Technical Trainer, a chartered mechanical engineer with over 30 years of mechanical engineering experience. Sharing some of his expert knowledge, Nick will provide valuable insight on the features and unique performance characteristics of a pump, and how to ensure they are operated in a safe, cost effective and mechanically reliable manner.
Reducing carbon footprint
With regards to pump services, Sulzer will highlight its ability to improve the energy efficiency of pump equipment – which reduces carbon footprint. With a carbon tax soon to be implemented in Malaysia and other Southeast Asian nations following suit as well, Sulzer’s pump retrofits and upgrades offer a proven, cost-effective route to improved efficiency and reduced carbon emissions. Attendees can view a 3D printed pump model on stand that allows easy visualization of these retrofit technologies and their benefits. To further optimize performance, visitors can learn about Blue Box™, Sulzer’s smart digital technology platform that aggregates advanced pump analytics, delivering actionable efficiency and maintenance insights to operators.
Technologically advanced turbo services
Sulzer also provides turnkey services for turbines of any brand. Thanks to a large in-house servicing capacity and best-in-class engineering capabilities, customers can benefit from fast turnarounds on projects of almost any size. Turbine inspections, repairs, upgrades, advanced reverse engineering, blade manufacture and testing are all available from a single source – delivering quality and expediting projects.
