The Turbomachinery Laboratory at Texas A&M University held its second biennial Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS) on March 13-15 in Singapore. Engineers and technicians, from novice to experienced, chose from a combination of seven short courses, 23 lectures, 16 tutorials, 12 discussion groups, 38 case studies and 11 technical briefs.
Texas A&M University researchers are studying seal leaks in subsea and aging oil well production facilities with the potential to greatly increase the efficiency of multiple-phase pumping and compressors turbomachinery.
Students from the Universidad de Guanajuato visited the Turbo Lab as a part of the Mexico Leadership Exchange (MLE), a program supported by the Texas A&M University chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Universidad de Guanajuato students visit Texas A&M each fall semester, and Texas A&M students visit the Guanajuato campus every spring. This year marks the 20th-annual MLE visit.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station’s Turbomachinery Laboratory, host of TPS, has partnered with New Way Air Bearings to launch #TPSHelpsHouston, a fundraising campaign to provide relief to Houston area residents affected by Hurricane Harvey.
