Turbomachinery Operation And Maintenance
MetadataShow full item record
Turbomachinery is sophisticated and complex in order to economically satisfy the process requirements of the petroleum and petrochemical industries. As a result of this increased sophistication and complexity, it is necessary to continually know the condition of the machinery in order to safeguard against shutdowns, losses, and disasters. Consequently modern techniques of monitoring the condition of the equipment are required and are becoming more commonplace. It is my objective to tell what is required to adequately monitor the condition of turbomachinery; to tell the analytical requirements to interpret data; and to indicate other uses of the data. The details reflect recent experience at one of our plants.
