New Technology EXPO Classroom Schedule

Discover new technologies from leading global manufacturers! Education at the New Technology EXPO Classroom. Make Discoveries and Solve Issues. Located on the EXPO Floor (opposite the main entrance).

While the Best Practices Conference program upholds brand neutrality guidelines, this separate classroom on the EXPO Floor is reserved for exhibitors to present their latest developments in a commercial fashion. The New Technology EXPO Classroom presentations do not necessarily reflect the views of the Best Practices EXPO & Conference.

3:30-3:55: AMS (Air Management System): Beyond Traditional Air Prep Systems, Nathan Eisel, National Product Development Manager, SMC Corporation of America

The decision to modernize your compressed air system at the machine level can be a challenging and risky one to make; this decision prompts questions of when and how to do so. This session will provide answers to these questions and teach you how to overcome challenges and mitigate risk associated with the modernization of your compressed air system, all while reducing your carbon footprint, implementing condition-based maintenance schedules, and leveraging digitalization for ultimate efficiency and efficacy. Air preparation has evolved beyond the simple filter, regulator, and lubricator (FRL) combination unit into something much more; the new AMS (Air Management System) is a three-tiered, multi-sized, modular air preparation system that prioritizes sustainability, data, and digitalization.

4:00-4:25: Is Control Gap a Problem for Oil-Free Rotary Screw Air Compressors?,  Jeff Yarnall, Auditor, Rogers Machinery Company

This presentation will define control gap in compressed air systems, identify where it exists, how to resolve it, mitigation strategies, resolutions and impacts on energy consumption.

4:30-4:55: Why Thermal Mass Flow is a Great Technology for Insights into Your Compressed Air Savings, Pascal van Putten, CEO VPInstruments

In this presentation, Pascal van Putten will cover how thermal mass flow is measured, benefits of thermal mass flow as well as its limitations. In addition, van Putten will cover how bi-directional flow is measured and why it is important, plus where you can measure with thermal mass flow sensors.
