Milnrow-based Precision Technologies Group (PTG) was platinum sponsor of City University London’s International Conference on Compressors and their Systems.
The 2017 conference, which took place between the 11 and 13 September, attracted more than 240 delegates from around the world and received 132 technical papers for consideration.
This was the tenth compressor conference to be hosted by City University London. The biennial event is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading conferences in compressor technology, while City University London is globally recognised as a premier centre of excellence for compressor design and development.
Committed to the advancement of compressor technology, PTG has sponsored the International Conference on Compressors and their Systems since it was first held in 1999. The conference provides a forum where developments in air, gas and refrigeration compressors, vacuum pumps, expanders, related systems and components are discussed.
In addition to the customary keynote addresses, research and technical papers, the 2017 programme included a full day dedicated exclusively to topics of key importance to industry.
This new element proved a particular highlight and gave representatives from industry the opportunity to discuss how their companies are responding to changes in technology and market demands.
During ‘industry day’, Colin Carr, Managing Director of PTG business, Holroyd Precision Rotors, provided an insight into the company’s global activities, including the creation of satellite work cells at locations overseas.
