“In 2010 the International Compressor Engineering Conference at Purdue celebrated its 20th gathering. Conference highlights include the presentation of 98 papers in 19 different sessions, covering a range of topics from conventional compressor design enhancements to novel and innovative compression technologies. Topics for the 2012 conference will include sessions on specific compressor technologies such as reciprocating, rotary, scroll, screw, centrifugal, linear and novel compressors; in addition, there will be sessions that cover issues and present modeling and evaluation tools related to compressor design and reliability, such as noise control, vibration, gas pulsations, materials, lubrication, wear, and valves.”
