Looking back at Pump-Tec 2005

Oct 18, 2005

The 1st Pump Hands-on Maintenance and Reliability Conference in Atlanta last month (PumpTec-2005) was an overwhelming success. It was a practical, hands-on, busy event, attended by maintenance and engineering professionals from chemical plants, refineries, power utilities, water and wastewater treatment facilities, pulp and paper, marine, and other industries. It had both U.S. as well as international participants. You can view the technical sessions at:

The Advisory Committee members have been already busy drafting up the details of the PumpTec-2006, set for September 20-22, 2006, with preliminary agenda posted at:  www.pumpingmachinery.com/conference_2006/conference.htm
Seven sessions are now planned for PumpTec-2006: End-Suction Centrifugal Pumps (sealed and seal-less); Positive Displacement Pumps; Vertical Pumps; Submersible Pumps, Instrumentation and Control; Metering Pumps; Split Case Centrifugal Pumps (single and multi-stage); and Mechanical Seals. These sessions will be conducted by the leading pump manufacturers, to represent a comprehensive cross-section range of main pump types, for the benefits of the pump users.
Registration will open as soon as companies and individuals conducting the sessions are finalized, with first choice reserved to the presenters that helped shaped the initial PumpTec-2005 program.
