    • Dry Gas Seal Contamination During Operation and Pressurized Hold - Background and Potential Solutions 

      Goebel, Daniel; Schmidt, Glenn (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2016)
      Technical Brief 1: This paper will discuss the challenges with contamination of gas seals. The reliability of gas seals is largely dependent on having a continuous supply of clean and dry seal gas. In dynamic mode, gas ...
