Atlas Copco and CT2 to host webinar on turbocompressor efficiency
By Keefe Borden26 January 2023
Atlas Copco and COMPRESSORtech2 are hosting a webinar on March 9 to illustrate the use of turbocompressors as keys to boosting efficiency and reducing carbon emissions.
The webinar, “Making the most of what we have: A holistic view of turbocompressors as efficiency and energy sources,” will feature two presenters: Daniel Schauer and Uwe Luer.
At Atlas Copco Gas and Process’ product company in Cologne (Germany), Daniel Schauer serves as Team Leader Aftermarket Engineering and Solutions. In this capacity, Daniel and his team are responsible for planning and carrying out revamping and upgrade projects around the world. Daniel started his career in Atlas Copco in 2000, working in order handling and as a rotating equipment specialist and site support to his current role.
Uwe Luer has nearly two decades of experience in revamping and repairing tailor-made turbo machinery for markets such as industrial, chemical/petrochemical gases, power generation, oil and gas. In his current role as Aftermarket Development Manager for Atlas Copco Gas and Process, he is based at Cologne, Germany at the product company Atlas Copco Energas. Uwe drives customer-oriented product development, combining global customer requirements from a wide range of different markets with innovative solutions.
The two representatives will address the concerns from plant operators across all industries who are facing the urgent need to increase energy efficiency and to slash carbon emissions.
High capacity centrifugal turbocompressors are at the heart of many operations and are designed to perform reliably and efficiently for decades. While the machine itself is built to perform as well as it did on day one, changing process circumstances can lead to these machines operating outside of their optimum efficiency levels.
Operators can increase energy efficiently, reduce energy consumption and cut CO2 emissions by upgrading compressors In this webinar, the speakers will describe different engineered solutions to achieve these objectives.
In addition to their presentation on upgrades, they will also provide an outlook on how turbocompressors can be viewed as a holistic heat source.
