Time: 09:00 to 09:30  or  16:00 to 16:30 (CEST)

How 2 out of 2 alarm logic affects the protection of your machine

Jonas Schilling, PROGNOST Systems GmbH

Time: 09:00 to 09:30  or  16:00 to 16:30 (CEST)


What causes liquid in the process and which consequences results to the compressors? This explanation will answer the questions of

  • What is a liquid carryover?
  • What are the reasons for a liquid carryover?
  • How to detect the liquid carryover?
  • Several real live case studies.

Registration no longer possible

Valve findings

Leaking Valve or Consequential Damage

Lukas Volkmer, PROGNOST Systems GmbH

Date: 12.05.2022

Time: 09:00 to 09:30  or  16:00 to 16:30 (CEST)
