ASME Turbo Expo will celebrate its 60th year during its four-day exposition, taking place June 15-19, 2015 at the Palais des Congres in Montreal. Recognized as the “must-attend event for turbomachinery professionals,” ASME Turbo Expo promises a dynamic keynote session, a technical conference that sets the world standard for turbine technology events, and a premium exhibit hall packed with the latest in turbine products and services.

Joining that exhibit hall is RF System Lab, makers of the high-quality VJ-Advance articulating video borescope. Turbine maintenance experts will be able to do a live demo of the VJ-Advance at RF System Lab’s booth, #224, to test out the joy-stick controlled articulation and high-resolution, onboard image and video capture first-hand.

Zack Wessels, RF System Lab borescope expert, will be onsite in the exhibition hall to provide information about how by adding an articulating video borescope to their preventative and corrective maintenance procedures, companies can save a significant amount of money and time.

Interested parties can visit the RF System Lab booth #224 starting on Tuesday, June 16th at noon for a chance to try out the groundbreaking VJ-ADV.

RF System Lab Sales Consultant, Casey O’Tool, had only positive things to say about his experience as an exhibitor at this year’s Western Turbine Users, Inc. conference. The conference took place last month in Palm Springs, California. Highlights from this year’s Western Turbine, Inc. conference included technical presentations by industry experts on various environmental, operations and maintenance issues surrounding operations of gas turbine fired power plants and informative technical breakout sessions.

One of Casey O’Tool’s favorite featured events was the “History of Flight” themed reception on Monday evening, which took place at the Palm Springs Air Museum. O’Tool was extremely impressed with the entertainment and layout of the event, noting “they really went all out. The conference coordinators rented out the entire museum for this reception… we ate our dinners, which were delicious, in the hanger! It was definitely an experience I’ll remember.”

In addition to enjoying the History of Flight reception and the friendly and inviting conference atmosphere, O’Tool told us that best experiences he had at the Western Turbine Users, Inc. conference were all through connections that he was able to make. O’Tool got the chance to catch up with RF System Lab client Component Repair Technologies, Inc., who was also exhibiting at the show. Their representative told O’Tool that they were extremely happy with their VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) 3.9mm video borescope. Component Repair Technologies is expecting to save thousands of dollars by making the switch from an expensive high-end unit to the affordable, feature-rich, VJ-ADV.

Another connection that O’Tool values having made is with Nalco, an Ecolab company. They are a leader in water treatment processes and purification. During the conference, O’Tool received an invitation to a dinner party that Nalco put on at the Blue Coyote Bar & Grill; a southwestern restaurant in downtown Palm Springs. While attending that dinner party, he was able to meet some great representatives from NAES, an independent service provider for the power generation industry.

The Western Turbine Users, Inc. conference clearly brings together many influential representatives in the gas turbine and inspection industry. According to O’Tool, “This conference is a really good fit for us. I would recommend attending to anyone in the gas turbine inspection or electric generation inspection industry. I’m already looking forward to being present in 2015!”

If you were unable to test drive the VJ-ADV at the Western Turbine Users, Inc. conference, we would like to offer you a free trial. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program so you can evaluate the VJ-ADV line of video borescopes in your facility doing your inspections, before you decide to buy.
