1st International Conference on Compressors and their Systems

13th – 15th September 1999


The International Conference on Compressors and their Systems series began in 1999 as a result of industrial consultation and need for academic collaboration. At the time the conference was organised by the Fluid Machinery Group of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) with support from Holroyd.

From 2009 the Centre for Compressor Technology at City, University of London took over its management and the Conference is now one of the main conventions, taking place biennially in the UK, becoming world-renowned for its place in industry and academia to gather and discuss a broad range of topical issues related to compressors and compression systems.

The IMechE remains a longstanding partner, along with the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR), and the Institute of Refrigeration (IOR).

Centre for Compressor Technology

The International Conference on Compressors and their Systems is organised by the Centre for Compressors Technology at City, University of London.

Formed at City in 1995 with support from the Royal Academy of Engineering and Holroyd, the Centre recently celebrated its jubilee anniversary, reinstating its aim to continue the advancement of compression technologies as it continues to grow.

By conducting world class R&D, providing education, developing software, and supplying consultancy and training, the Centre is not just contributing to the screw machine industry far beyond the British Isles but it is also significantly impacting the reach towards the global energy efficiency targets.
