    • Padding with Compressed Air 

      Beals, C. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 2004)
      We commonly find plants using padding to transport liquids or light solids short distances from tankers into storage tanks. Padding can wreck havoc in compressed air systems with limited storage, undersized cleanup equipment ...
    • Parallel Condensing System As A Heat Sink For Power Plants 

      Akhtar, S. Z. (Energy Systems Laboratory (, 2001-05)
      Conventional heat sink technologies of use the condenser/cooling tower arrangement or an air cooled condenser for condensing exhaust steam from steam turbines. Each of these two systems have certain advantages as well as ...
    • Parastillation Process in Operations 

      Canfield, F.; Jenkins, O. (Energy Systems Laboratory (, 1986-06)
      The Parastillation process is a new method for multi-stage, counter-current contact between vapor and liquid that results in 33% more ideal stages than distillation for a given tray spacing. Patents have been granted ...
    • Park Load Reduction by Preconditioning of Buildings at Night 

      Rabl, A.; Norford, L. K. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 1988)
      Cooling loads during the peak period can be reduced if a building is subcooled a few degrees below its normal thermostat setpoint during the preceding night. During the day, the thermostat must control the warmup in such ...
    • Particular Problems Of Steam Turbine Lubrication 

      Enz, Walter E.; Hausemann, Alfred (Texas A&M University. Gas Turbine Laboratories, 1978)
      The reliability of a steam turboset is dependent, among other things, on correct functioning of its hydraulic lubrication and control system. An essential requirement is a reliable oil supply over the whole operating range. ...
    • Particulate Waste Product Combustion System 

      King, D. R.; Chastain, C. E. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 1984)
      The disposal of low value by-products from the processing of agricultural food crops presents many energy consuming problems to the food producing industry. Consequently, industry has the continuous problem of utilization ...
