Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-theart simulators. Centrifugal Compressors and Mechanical Drive Steam Turbines are used extensively in the process industries. There are many types with widely varying configurations and applications. Compressors and steam turbines represent a significant part of the capital and operating costs of most plants, and optimizing their selection is therefore, of major economic importance. The course deals with design features, efficiencies, operating characteristics, reliability and maintenance implications of centrifugal compressors and their steam turbine drivers. The course will cover the operating principles of centrifugal compressors and steam turbines, specifications, their design, thermodynamics, effects of efficiency on operating costs, energy usage, and effect on plant costs, materials of construction, selection, troubleshooting and maintenance.The course will also cover plant run-length extension surveys, organizing for successful turnarounds and on-going reliability improvement, and preventive vs. predictive maintenance strategy decisions. The course will provide the participant with a basic as well as advanced centrifugal compressor and steam turbine technology knowledge inventory required to successfully select, apply, operate, troubleshoot and maintain compression and steam turbine equipment.Upon completion of this course, participants will have gained a thorough understanding of the various centrifugal compressor and steam turbine configurations available to most industrial users, including mechanical design features, sizing and application criteria, maintainability, reliability, vulnerability and troubleshooting issues. Participants will learn simple techniques and short-cut methods of machinery sizing and selection. This replaces tedious hand or other methods of calculation and will serve as a fast way to arrive at sensitivity or influence of parameter changes on equipment performance. Participants will be able to determine the most appropriate and efficient matching of steam turbine drivers to compressors. Participants will also acquire knowledge of operating and maintenance issues by getting to know mechanical design, machinery components, connecting piping design as well as proven approaches to monitoring, troubleshooting and maintaining compressor installations. link to course overview PDF
