Creating opportunities for future fluid machinery experts http://admin.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2022/august-2022/maintenance-and-reliability/creating-opportunities-for-future-fluid-machinery-experts The state of understanding science and facts on one side and distinguishing these from anecdotes and often far-fetched opinions on the other side should be concerning to us. Institutions of higher learning can be disinclined to teach needed, applicable or actionable knowledge. HRSG water/steam sampling: Do it right or face potential consequences http://admin.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2022/july-2022/process-optimization/hrsg-watersteam-sampling-do-it-right-or-face-potential-consequences Many large industrial facilities—including refineries, and chemical and petrochemical plants—are increasingly turning to co-generation for process steam and power production. Fouling in hydrogen recycle gas compressors http://admin.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2022/july-2022/special-focus-valves-pumps-and-turbomachinery/fouling-in-hydrogen-recycle-gas-compressors Hydrogen recycle gas compressors are one of the most significant rotating equipment in oil refineries, petrochemical plants and upgraders. Valves, Pumps and Turbomachinery: Achieving the right installation torque with a virtual calculation http://admin.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2022/july-2022/columns/valves-pumps-and-turbomachinery-achieving-the-right-installation-torque-with-a-virtual-calculation Determining the required installation torque for a tight flange system is a daily challenge for industrial valve manufacturers and plant operators. Reliability: When to consider liquid-ring compressors http://admin.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2022/july-2022/columns/reliability-when-to-consider-liquid-ring-compressors Liquid-ring compressors (FIG. 1) use the centrifugal whirling of a sealing liquid to create a series of piston-like water columns to trap gas or vapor between the impeller cells of a rotor installed eccentric to its casing. BASF and MAN Energy Solutions enter into partnership for construction of one of the world’s largest heat pumps in Ludwigshafen http://admin.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/news/2022/07/basf-and-man-energy-solutions-enter-into-partnership-for-construction-of-one-of-the-world-s-largest-heat-pumps-in-ludwigshafen This project is intended to make an important contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, establishing the use of low-CO2 technologies in chemical production and reducing the site’s natural gas consumption. Bringing treatments to a boil http://admin.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2022/may-2022/water-management/bringing-treatments-to-a-boil The function of a boiler is simple. It boils water to produce steam, which, in turn, provides energy.
