    • Development And Application Of A Vertical High Speed Motor-Compressor Simulator For Rotor Drop Onto Auxiliary Bearings. 

      Ransom, David; Masala, Andrea; Moore, Jeffrey; Vannini, Giuseppe; Camatti, Massimo; Lacour, Michel (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2009)
      During the conceptual development of a subsea motor-compressor prototype running on active magnetic bearings, the emergency landing on the catcher bearings was identified as a potential technology gap. This is because the ...
    • Full Load Testing Of A 12.5 MW Vertical High Speed Subsea Motorcompressor 

      Vannini, Giuseppe; Masala, Andrea; Camatti, Massimo; Neri, Massimiliano Ortiz; Bondi, Sergio; Evangelisti, Silvia (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2011)
      In late 2006 Authors’ company was awarded a contract for the motorcompressor for the Ormen Lange Subsea Compression Pilot. This Pilot represents the first subsea motorcompressor unit ever built in a fully marinized version ...
    • Instability Of A High Pressure Compressor Equipped With Honeycomb Seals. 

      Camatti, Massimo; Vannini, Giuseppe; Fulton, John W.; Hopenwasser, Fred (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2003)
      A two casing (three-stage) high-pressure injection compressor train driven by a gas turbine via a gearbox was full load and full speed performance tested to demonstrate satisfactory aerothermal and rotordynamic performance. ...
    • Mechanical Performance Of A Two Stage Centrifugal Compressor Under Wet Gas Conditions 

      Ransom, David; Podesta, Luigi; Camatti, Massimo; Wilcox, Melissa; Bertoneri, Matteo; Bigi, Manuele (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2011)
      As subsea compression becomes a vital technology to the successful production of gas reserves in the North Sea, several technology issues will come to the forefront of the oil and gas industry. One of these important ...
