API Specification Review For Gas Turbine Driven Turbocompressors.
MetadataShow full item record
This tutorial provides an overview of the latest edition of American Petroleum Institute (API) Code API 616 (1998) and also provides a brief summary of API 614 (1999), 617 (2002), 670 (2000), 671 (1998), and 677 (1997) as they apply to gas turbine driven compressors. Critical section of the codes are discussed in detail with a special focus on their technical interpretation and relevance for the purchasing scope-of-supply comparison, machine testing, and field operation. Technical compliance issues for package, core engine, instrumentation, and driven compressor are addressed individually. As API 616 (1998) forms the backbone for most oil and gas combustion turbine acquisitions, it is covered in more detail. Some recommendations for acceptance of manufacturer exceptions to API and the technical/commercial implications will be provided. A brief Discussion of the relevance NFPA 70 (2002) to gas turbine driven compressor sets in oil and gas applications will also be included. This tutorial course is intended for purchasing, operating, and engineering staff of turbomachinery user companies.
