Seminar pressure impact in piping on 17-18 February 2014 in Essen and 10-11 March 2014 in Munich the cause for pressure surges, steam hammers and pulsations in piping is usually to quickly close the faucets with increasing throughputs. Leaks and downtime during pipe systems are triggered often by pressure surges in liquid promotional lines as well as steam hammers and cycles in steam and gas networks. Transportation energy costs make a high proportion of the operating costs of a production plant. If piping systems are too conservative and there are too many outdated equipment, a very high pressure loss and thus unnecessarily high energy consumption arises. A piping system can be operated energy – and cost-efficient by optimizing the processes with a deeper understanding of the phenomena. In the two-day intensive seminar pressure surges, steam hammers and pulsations in piping on 17-18 February 2014 in Essen and 10-11 March 2014 in Munich offers the Haus der Technik on the fundamentals-oriented practical understanding of the processes occurring in pipes and piping systems for piping engineer, maintenance staff and operating engineers.
Supported by videos of practical attempts are taught to those methods, which are used to estimate potential hazards and risks, measures of prevention are developed. The presenter Dr.-ing. Andreas Dudlik, Mulheim, Prof. Dr. rer.
NAT. Habil. OLAF BleibaumFakultat environmental engineering, Amberg-Weiden College (formerly Technip GmbH) and Dipl.-ing. Anatole Lilienfeld TOAL, Technip Germany GmbH, Dusseldorf make the 2-day intensive seminar in the sections: Basics I – water hammer and cavitation shock, Basics II – pulsations: pressure pulsations in piping systems, part III: experimental design, measurement, prevention methods, part IV: computer-aided calculation for malfunctions and damage cases – application and limitations.
The 47th Annual Congress of general practice and family medicine with the theme ‘ complexity in general practice challenges and opportunities ‘ broke all records.-as Congress President Prof. Anthony Schneider could alone 670 participants at the Klinikum rechts der ISAR of the TU Munich welcome. It is the largest scientific Congress general practitioner ever arranged in Germany. The German society for general practice and family medicine (DEGAM) appreciates the wide interest at their annual Congress: the large number of 232 was selected by a total 264 submitted abstracts. In addition to 120 lectures, 22 workshops and nine Preconference workshops took place. In addition, scientists from all over Germany presented their findings on 81 posters. Like every year the three best posters were awarded, the first prize went this time to the working group by Jacqueline Verena Michel (University of Maastricht), Verena Leve, PD Dr. s on the topic at hand. Horst Christian Vollmar, Prof.
Stefan Wilm, and Dr. Michael Pentzek (Alle Universitat Dusseldorf) with the subject of driving ability in dementia: ideas to proceed in the GP practice “. Key topics for discussion at the Congress were the education and training, improving under the key words will increasingly employ PJ duty quarter and Verbundweiterbildungplus the DEGAM in the near future. “The complexity takes in medicine noticeably DEGAM President Prof. Ferdinand M. Gerlach emphasized in the opening event, therefore, that the increase of Multimorbidity, as well as the progressive specialization of the Sub would require a medicine with a sense of proportion: A good family medicine can ensure an adequate and at the same time cost effective supply in this situation.” The Bavarian State Minister for environment and health, Dr.
Marcel Huber, praised the work of DEGAM, especially the commitment in the field of education and training in his speech. Prof. Gerlach expressed the wish, following sentence in the coalition agreement on federal policy, regardless of the outcome of the upcoming election, “a future Government to record: the training of medical students and the instruments for the promotion of training in general medicine be further developed to ensure the primary supply targeted.” No changes in the Executive Bureau of the DEGAM, again elected in all positions, there are regular elections in the General Assembly.
Clean zone convinces internationalism and increasing numbers of visitors satisfied faces in Frankfurt: with an increase and a high level of visitor satisfaction, the clean zone shows clear growth course. Trade fair and Congress for clean room technology found on the 22nd and 23rd October 2013 for the second time and drew more than 800 participants from 44 countries in the Hall of the Frankfurt trade fair grounds 1.1. The concept of the clean zone of 2013 has risen. The interdisciplinary approach as well as the heightened profile of trade fair and Congress were very well received. We could reach with the event”new target groups from major industries and countries, says Ruth Lorenz, head of new events” at Messe Frankfurt. Overall, the clean zone reported an increase in visitor numbers to around one-third (2012: 600 visitors).
The exhibitors praised above all the high quality and internationality of the public: we have made good contacts with the right interests and concrete projects on the clean zone. The visitors did not come only from European neighbouring countries, but also from us new markets such as India, Iran, Egypt, Algeria and Slovenia”, says Nico tain, senior developer at vision competence centre at SAC-Nederland. The clean zone was established on initiative of the clean room industry by Messe Frankfurt in 2012. The specialized event is aimed at all sectors of the economy, which under clean conditions produced, assembled, packaged or worked. For this, 50 exhibitors (2012: 41) presented this year almost the entire range from the planning, construction and operation of clean rooms to consumables and training. Also the degree of internationality of the clean zone is increased with the number of exhibitors and visitors. So the providers from nine European countries met with fair and Congress participants from around the world.
The top-five visitors Nations were the Netherlands, the Switzerland, United Kingdom, the Russian Federation and the United States. Future perspectives on the clean zone shows Congress Congress went to the second round and 2013 continued its focus on the growing global requirements in the industry and new solutions for the health sector. With the high quality of their lectures, the international speakers underlined the scientific claims of this new platform and harnessed the arc of cross-industry trends to the specialized field of clean room technology. The combination of trade fair and Congress works well: the exhibition shows the Status Quo. The Congress is an important forum for the international exchange in the clean room industry, on which future developments, but also important backgrounds are illuminated,”says Dr. Kai Dirscherl, researchers and quality manager at the Danmarks national Metrologiinstitut. Focus on innovation also the programme of action stage clean zone Plaza was expanded and star-studded panel discussions on current issues in the clean room industry offered in addition to experts and Exhibitor presentations. Another highlight was the presentation of the cleanroom Cleanroom Awards Academy of Leipzig. Winner of the endowed with 3,000 euros Innovation award the project is blue touch innovative concept for cleanrooms”company of Laborial Solucoes p / Laboratorio SA from Portugal. Next clean zone on 21 and 22 October 2014 the next clean zone takes on the 21st and 22nd October 2014 at the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre. All information about the clean zone in Frankfurt also see:
