    • Development of New On-Line Wash Oil Injection System for Centrifugal Compressor 

      Mathew, Ajay; Tokuyama, Shinichiro; Masaki, Shakuda; Subramani, Elumalai (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      The process gas compressor is the most critical unit in ethylene plants and several types of contamination can often foul the compressor flow path and plant production is significantly lost. In order to prevent this ...
    • Investigation and Resolution of Governing Valve Linkage Failure for Compressor Drive Steam Turbine 

      Nishiyama, Kenichi; Jain, Mayank; Subramani, Elumalai (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      Fatigue failure of Governing Valve Linkage Rod end bearing and wear marks on several parts was observed on a extraction steam turbine (driving a centrifugal compressor) after it was in service for more than 9 year. The top ...
