    • A Review of the Critical Design Parameters for Labyrinth Type Separation Seals on Dry-gas-seals 

      Hanekom, Dian (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      An ethylene compressor experienced a dry-gas-seal (DGS) hang-up condition and a RCA concluded that a possible root- or contributing cause is lube oil passing the labyrinth type separation seal into the secondary DGS cavity, ...
    • Stray Currents and their Damaging Effects on Rotating Machinery 

      Hanekom, Dian (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      Stray currents manifest in rotating machinery as a result of specific abnormalities in machines related to flux imbalance, residual magnetism, electrostatic build-up and induced voltages. Discharges of these voltages in ...
