What delegates may expect from the 9th EFRC Conference in Vienna

Vienna, Austria, will play host for the 9th EFRC. The biennial conference will be held Sept. 10-12, 2014. During the two-day 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, Technologymupdate, 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,” said René Peters, Chairman of the EFRC. “It is where people gather and are open to share experiences so that new ideas can grow. 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. The best ideas are generated when we do not accept the status quo.”

Topics included in the Training Programme:
  • Excitation loads by reciprocating compressors
  • Soil – foundation interaction
  • Selection and application of anchor bolts
  • Stinkgid-mounted machines
  • Selection and application of grouting
  • Installation, operation and maintenance
