Axial Thrust in High Pressure Centrifugal Compressors: Description of a Calculation Model Validated by Experimental Data from Full Load Test Fontana, Michele; Baldassarre, Leonardo; Bernocchi, Andrea; Rizzo, Emanuele; Maiuolo, Francesco (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2015)The residual axial thrust acting on the rotor of a centrifugal compressor is the result of the non-uniform pressure distribution on the surfaces in contact with the process gas, plus the differential pressure acting on the ...
Baldassarre, Leonardo; Bernocchi, Andrea; Failli, Leonardo; Fontana, Michele; Mitaritonna, Nicola; Rizzo, Emanuele (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2014)High pressure centrifugal compressors are often equipped with honeycomb seal on balance drum in order to optimize rotordynamic stability. In very high pressures applications (>200 bar) the direct stiffness and damping of ...
