Texas A&M Turbomachinery Laboratory and Vibration Institute partner for 2020 Asia symposium

Partnership brings vibration analysis and condition monitoring track to Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium

The Turbomachinery Laboratory at Texas A&M University and the Vibration Institute are partnering to bring a vibration analysis and condition monitoring track to the third biennial Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS).

ATPS is organized by the Turbo Lab, a center of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and part of The Texas A&M System. It will be held 7-9 April 2020 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with full-day short courses on 6 April ahead of the symposium. The Vibration Institute will facilitate a short course as part of the partnership.

“This is an exciting day for the Vibration Institute,” said Michael Long, executive director of the Vibration Institute. “Our Asia contingency has long been asking us to bring a conference to the region, and by partnering with the Turbo Lab on ATPS, we will be able to fulfill that goal in a very dynamic way. We are extremely excited to get to work on developing an excellent program, and are honored to be associated with such a prestigious engineering institution.”

Stationed in the fastest growing market for energy, oil and gas, and manufacturing, ATPS is the ideal training and networking opportunity for professionals in both pump and turbomachinery industries. ATPS builds upon the success of the longstanding Turbomachinery and Pump Symposia (TPS) in Houston, featuring an international exhibition and a uniquely crafted technical program, hand-picked by an advisory committee of key industry players.

“The Vibration Institute was a natural partner for us with its vast expertise and resources both in vibration analysis and condition monitoring,” said Greg Gammon, director of operations for the Turbo Lab. “As a nonprofit organization governed by industry leaders and producers of peer-reviewed training, certification, and content, their strong reputation in the industry will be an asset to ATPS.”

For persons or companies interested in participating in the Vibration Institute program track at ATPS 2020, they should contact Michael Long at mlong@vi-institute.org
