RF System lab was proud to participate in the 40th Turbomachinery 2011 & 27th International Pump Symposium from September 12th-15th 2011. The Symposium was held at the George R. Brown convention center in downtown Houston Texas. The show was extremely busy with plenty of potential customers who were interested in the VJ-ADV articulating video borescope. We were pleased with all the excitement centered on our new 3.9mm video borescope.

I spent some time with Mark McKind from Fusion Babbitting Co. If you have never checked out Fusion babbitting…you must check out the Fusion Babbitting website. I really enjoyed meeting the gentlemen Representing Kawasaki Power Generation. They were very intrigued with how ergonomically designed the VJ-Advance line of borescopes are … they couldn’t believe how compact, lightweight and portable the VJ-Adv borescope is when compared to other high-end video borescopes.
I was really excited to stop by the Afton Pump booth at the show. I had just received a PO from Afton for our new 3.9mm borescope on the Friday before I flew down to Houston. I wanted to thank them for their recent purchase and discuss with their engineers exactly how they used the 3.9mm articulating video borescope in their quality department to inspect the bowls in their impeller pumps so they can be 100% sure that they are free from all imperfections. There is no substitute for visual verification…that’s why video borescopes have become an indispensable tool for many Quality Control Engineers.

In all, I had a wonderful time at the Symposium meeting new customers and seeing familiar faces. I made some great contacts and would recommend this show to anyone who is interested in Turbines, Turbos, Pumps and Compressors. The next Symposium is scheduled for September 24th-27th 2012 in Houston Texas. Hope to see you there!
