Development And Testing Of A New High Flow Centrifugal Pipeline Booster
MetadataShow full item record
Development of a high-flow gas transmission compressor designed for maximum efficiency and servicing ease is presented. Design techniques involving the use of a finite element stress computer program and elemental impeller blade loading are discussed. Corroborating stress/strain data established from casing model and full size hydrostatic testing are included. A tabulation of performance results derived from moderate and low pressure closed loop testing, including the effects of guide vane positioning, are of special importance. A brief review of materials selection for high strength at low temperatures and some thrust bearing test data is also of some interest.
