A training session conducted by external expert Mr. Braja Kishore Shome on Air Blowers for STP and ETP on Saturday, 05, January, 2019 at the Ecotech training hall. Shome started his career with SLM Manekal who were pioneers in air blowers and vacuum pumps, in the year 1976. He has over 40 years of hands-on experience in erecting, commissioning, servicing, and troubleshooting Air Blowers of all descriptions and sizes.
The biggest job he has handled to date is the commissioning of Roots blowers for a gas plant in Iran with a capacity of 25,000 cubic-metres/hr. With pressures of 1000 bars (1000 times atmospheric pressure), and a 1500 kW motor—too many zeros for any of us to comprehend!
Shome graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Calcutta in 1972, and has been a Bangalorean for several years now.
