Reapplication Of Turbomachinery.
MetadataShow full item record
The reapplication of equipment can be attractive and rewarding when the proper situation warrants. The main factors that encourage consideration of this path can include simple economics, convenience, or possibly a more expeditious route for a project. This also offers lower risk when the equipment is known and proven. Reapplying equipment can produce significant savings of capital project funds which equates to immediate gains, as well as the reward of accelerated returns due to a shorter schedule. However, the probability of finding a perfect match for a new application is remote, and hence, a redesign is normally required. Various options the end-user can consider in performing redesign work are reviewed, along with the logic that supports the various options, the requirements and paths to be considered. Example case studies will be examined.
