Description

RATS Technical Sessions

Each bi-monthly gathering begins with a 30 minute technical presentation, followed by a Q&A period, and social networking. Doors open at 5:00PM and the presentation will begin promptly at 5:30PM, however if you can't make it until later, you are still welcome to come and network. The official event will conclude around 8:00PM, but Polos is open until 11:00PM. A door prize will be given away, eligible to anyone in attendance that has pre-registered for the event.

These technical sessions are open to all people involved with the industrial rotating equipment industry, including (but not limited to): Engineers, technologists, specialists, technicians, millwrights, planners, managers, projects, students, retirees, vendors, and those in transition.

The events, food and drinks are provided by our valued Gold Sponsors. RATS is grateful for the support of the Gold Sponsors, without which these events would not be possible. If your company would like to help sponsor a particular session, we will list your company's name as a Bar Sponsor on our Whiteboard. Just let one of the board members or servers know, or contact webmaster@rotatingspecialist.org ahead of time.

Any funds remaining after expenses for these events are used to support two annual scholarships for students in the field of rotating equipment and two local charities.

The Technical Sessions will be held on the upper deck at Polos Social Lounge, 950 Emerald Drive, Sherwood Park, AB T8H 0W6 (connected to Hampton Inn & Suites). https://www.poloslounge.com/ (780) 570-1550

Topic: Thermal growth issues and solutions for shaft couplings

Presenter: Motion Canada

Description: The presenter will discuss one of the most misdiagnosed issue(s) with rotating equipment in our northern climate. This issue places inadvertent stress on couplings and bearings so we tend to chase the wrong root cause. The presenter will also show innovative solutions, which were recently published globally in Power Transmission Engineering Magazine:
