Congratulations to L.A. Turbine Director of Engineering, Houman Shokraneh, Ph.D. on the acceptance of his case study for presentation at the 42nd Turbomachinery Symposia this fall. On Thursday, October 3 Houman will present “Innovative Design in Expander Wheel-Shaft Attachment Replaces Hirth Coupling for High Speed, High Temperature and High Power Applications” during the 8:30 a.m. turboexpander case study session. Learn how 10 years of operational and environmental challenges were overcome when advanced machine technology, root cause analysis and a new design approach were applied to an expander-generator within a geothermal power plant. Read more about Dr. Shokraneh’s case study and the 42nd Turbomachinery and 29th Pump Symposia at turbolab.tamu.edu.
In addition to participating in the technical conference, Houman and several other key L.A. Turbine executives including CEO John Maskaluk, President Danny Mascari and Product Director and industry guru Richard Samson will be on hand to discuss L.A. Turbine’s latest innovations and client work in our exhibition space, Booth # 551 from September 30-October 3, 2013 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.
