    • Design and Mitigation Techniques for Applications with Possible Liquid Contamination of the Sealing Gas Dry Gas Seal System 

      McCraw, James F.; Bakalchuk, Vladimir; Hosanna, Richard (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2008)
      A compressor in a natural gas gathering service experienced multiple seal failures on the discharge end. Synthetic oil mist contained in the sealing gas was identified as a significant source of contamination that caused ...
    • Dry Gas Seals. Application of Double vs. Tandem Dry Gas Seal Advantages 

      Sears, John; Steinmann, Detlev; Bakalchuk, Vladimir; Asokan, S. P. (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2016)
      Tutorial 19B: Traditionally double seals have been used for low pressure applications when nitrogen gas at pressure higher than process was available for sealing. Double seals were not applied to low pressure processes ...
    • Dry Gas Seals. Monitoring a Tandem Dry Gas Seal's Secondary Seal 

      Hosana, Rich; Schmidt, Glenn; Bakalchuk, Vladimir; McCraw, Jim (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2016)
      Tutorial 19D: Rotating equipment and instrument engineers working with dry gas seals should attend this tutorial to increase their knowledge of methods for monitoring secondary seals. Over the last several years a number ...
    • Examination of Methods of Dry Gas Seal Supply, Regulation, and Monitoring 

      Bakalchuk, Vladimir; Dwyer, Kevin; Hosanna, Rich; Chinnaswamy, Sreenivasulu; Eisenmann, Jr., Robert; McCraw, Jim (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      Compressor Dry Gas Seal Failure is a common issue that affects Turbomachinery train availability. Since most turbomachinery trains are un-spared critical assets, unscheduled shutdowns have a major impact to the operating ...
    • Monitoring a Tandem Dry Gas Seal's Secondary Seal 

      Schmidt, Glenn; Hosanna, Rich; Bakalchuk, Vladimir; McCraw, Jim (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2014)
      Rotating equipment and instrument engineers working with dry gas seals should attend this tutorial to increase their knowledge of methods for monitoring secondary seals. Over the last several years a number of compressor ...
