Steam Turbine Steam Control Valve Failure
MetadataShow full item record
The Wet Gas compressor is one of the most critical assets in a FCCU/RCCU of a oil refinery. The back pressure steam turbine driver of this compressor faced two failures in the main valve stem of the steam inlet valve. Detailed study jointly between the OEM and the End User resulted in identification of the root causes causing the failure and applying relevant solutions.
