Commissioning And Startups Of New Units (Pumps)
MetadataShow full item record
Installation and startup of centrifugal pumps and drives can be a stressful time. It involves a coordinated working relationship with several crafts - foundation, contractors, pipefitters, welders, millwrights, startup engineers, electricians, and information technology (IT) technicians. Also the startup routine is the last event in the long process from ordering equipment to installation. By the nature of being last in the process, any delays in the upstream processes are expected to be mitigated by a quick uncomplicated startup. With these pressures in place a firm dedication to following procedures is required. The steps from installation to startup are described and in their proper sequential order.
