    • Journal Bearing Vibration and SSV Hash 

      DeCamillo, Scan M.; He, Minhui; Cloud, C. Hunter (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2008)
      Peculiar, low-frequency, radial vibrations have been observed in various turbomachinery using tilt-pad journal bearings. Unlike discrete subsynchronous spikes that often indicate a serious problem, the vibrations are ...
    • JSC Sustainability Engagement Strategy 

      Peterson, L. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 2012)
    • Judge The Pump Hydraulic Design Through Numbers Before You Buy 

      Spring, Hans (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1995)
      A few well established hydraulic design parameters define the internal quality of an impeller design. Becoming familiar with those parameters and understanding their limits will enable pump buyers to make better pump buying ...
    • Jumpstart Green Schools with Campus Eco-Audits 

      LaMotte, G. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 2013)
    • Justification for Energy Efficient Motors 

      Buschart, R. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 1981)
      This paper presents the results of a study of Energy Efficient (or EE) motors in NEMA frame sizes, (1-200 HP). It examines the economics of using EE motors for new motor requirements, as replacements for motors - instead ...
    • Justifying and Planning an Energy Monitoring System in an Existing Plant 

      Stublen, A. P.; Wellman, C. M.; Kell, S. A. (Energy Systems Laboratory (, 1998-04)
      Many electrical distribution specialists are using power monitoring systems to improve the effectiveness of their facilities. Information from power monitoring systems can be used to minimize permanent investment, reduce ...
    • Justifying The Reinstallation And Upgrading Of Problem ANSI Pumps At An Operating Chemical Plant 

      Dolniak, Joseph F. (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1995)
      Many facilities do not obtain the expected life out of ANSI and other centrifugal pumps, seals, and bearings that need to be obtained to be competitive in today’s market place. The analysis of this situation leads to two ...
