Course Description

Upon completion of this course, participants will have gained a thorough understanding of the various steam turbine configurations available to virtually every industrial user. Items discussed include mechanical design features, sizing and application criteria, maintainability, reliability, vulnerability, and troubleshooting issues. Participants will learn simple techniques and short-cut methods of machinery selection, which can take the place of tedious hand calculations and will serve as rapid means to determine sensitivity or influence of parameter changes on equipment performance. Participants will be able to determine the most appropriate and efficient matching of compressor or pump to steam turbine driver. Participants will also acquire knowledge of operating and maintenance issues by getting to know mechanical design, machinery components, piping design, as well as proven approaches to monitoring, troubleshooting, and maintenance of compressor installations.

Who Should Attend

Persons in staff (senior technicians, operators, supervisors, superintendents) and corporate engineering, plant planning and design, systems design, equipment selection and evaluation, and equipment maintenance areas. Also, equipment and systems specialists in engineering contractor firms and managerial and supervisory individuals responsible for operations and maintenance functions.

The industries most directly involved with the subject matter are those producing chemicals, petrochemicals, petroleum products, natural gases, manufacturing gases, steel and other metals, and plants requiring process refrigeration. Throughout the course, participants will have ample opportunity to have equipment-related questions answered by the instructor.
