Vienna to Host 9th EFRC Conference

Biennial Conference To be Held September 10-12, 2014


Published:

Vienna, Austria, will play host city for the 9th EFRC Conference (European Forum for Reciprocating Compressors). The biennial conference will be held September 10 - 12, 2014.

During the two-days meeting, 40 papers will be presented to an audience expected to gather more than 400 delegates from 30 countries. Conference papers will be grouped into 10 different sessions: Controls, Monitoring, Sealing, Calculation, Design, Technology update, Pulsation, Lubrication, Application and EFRC Working groups.

The EFRC was founded in June 1999. Its mission is to provide the targeted exchange of ideas and information between operators, manufacturers, scientists and component suppliers of reciprocating compressors. The objective of the forum is to advance reciprocating compressors, both technologically and economically.

“This conference is a platform for the exchange of ideas, experience and information. It is where people gather and are open to share experiences so that new ideas can grow,” said René Peters, Chairman of the EFRC. “The EFRC stimulates collaboration between suppliers, manufacturers and end-users because we believe that in collaboration, innovation can take place. Only when we do not accept the environment in which we find ourselves then successful change and innovation can be realized. When we do not accept the status quo, that’s where the best ideas are generated”.  

Online delegate registration is open until July 31, 2014. Complete details, including session topics, times and locations, can be found at www.recip.org
