INPRO/SEAL – Evaluating Carbon Ring Alternatives

INPRO/SEAL – Evaluating Carbon Ring Alternatives

Operators of general-purpose steam turbines have long stated the shortcomings of conventional carbon ring seals. One drawback is wear at the ring’s inner bore, which gradually increases shaft clearance and steam leakage and leads to regular replacement—as often as four times per year. Despite their disadvantages, carbon rings remain the standard in general-purpose steam turbine […]

Contact-free indirect measurement for hygienic applications

Contact-free indirect measurement for hygienic applications

The non-contact mode of measurement is very interesting for hygienic applications in the food-, pharmaceutical- and cosmetics industry, as well as for industrial applications with thick, adhesive and solid containing liquids. Experience has shown that conventional volumetric flow meters quickly come to their limit, while other measuring procedures are often very complex and/or are not […]

Fluid Dynamics: The Study of Fluids and How Forces Affect Them

Fluid dynamics is one of two branches of fluid mechanics, which is the study of fluids and how forces affect them. Fluid dynamics is “the branch of applied science that is concerned with the movement of liquids and gases,” according to the American Heritage Dictionary. Fluid dynamics is one of two branches of fluid mechanics, […]
