Course Description

The course will cover the principal machines represented at a large number of plants. There will be a thorough examination of basic operating concepts, application ranges, selection criteria, maintenance, inspection and vulnerabilities of certain types of equipment. The course will also review the short-cut selection and sizing methods for fluid machinery.

Upon the successful completion of this course, participants will have gained an understanding of the 12 principal types of machinery used in industry. They will understand the differences between electric motors, design peculiarities, advantages and disadvantages of different types of gears, operating principles of gas turbines, reciprocating gas engines and the Surge Control Considerations in Centrifugal Compressors.

The course will convey an understanding of impulse vs. reaction turbines, insights into application ranges, limitations, maintenance and operability constraints for different kinds of pumps, compressors and dynamic gas machinery such as turbo-machinery as opposed to displacement machinery.
