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 […]

Vacuum System Troubleshooting

Vacuum System Troubleshooting

Understand the causes of common problems and how to address them. When the desired vacuum condition isn’t provided at a process plant, production often comes to a halt and all eyes become focused on the vacuum pump as the root cause of the problem. However, the vacuum pump usually isn’t culprit. In almost all cases, […]

New Piping Plans for Better Leak Detection

New Piping Plans for Better Leak Detection

Piping plans for mechanical seals are used to improve the environmental conditions around a seal, extend its capabilities and allow operators to monitor seal performance. American Petroleum Institute (API) 682 contains the most widely referenced specifications for mechanical seal piping plans. This standard includes existing piping plans used in the field and introduces new piping […]

5 handy tips to increase the longevity of a pressure sensor

5 handy tips to increase the longevity of a pressure sensor

Here are some simple, easy tips to implement that will result in fewer failures and longer lasting pressure sensors. Just as a large ship is steered by a rather small rudder, pressure sensors play a much larger role in process monitoring and control than their size indicates. Likewise, they may not be the most expensive […]
