Rotating Equipment

Engineering Case Histories: Case 108—Failure analysis computations differ from design

Consulting Engineer: Sofronas, A.

When equipment fails, it indicates weak points and usually exposes the cause(s) of the failure.

Reliability: Viewing issues out of context may be a waste of time

Hydrocarbon Processing Staff: Bloch, Heinz P.

An alternative to the above title would be “Test your rotating equipment engineers’ IQ.”

From traditional to green refinery: The transformation of Eni’s Gela plant

Baker Hughes: Gravame, F.  |  Nardi, A.  |  Gioli, G.  |  Corti, F.

The need for a more sustainable energy mix is setting a challenge for refinery operators.

Reliability: Comparing and updating aeration blower technologies

Hydrocarbon Processing Staff: Bloch, Heinz P.

As the main consumers of electricity in a wastewater treatment plant, aeration blowers can significantly affect the overall cost of plant operation.

Hydrocarbon Processing Awards

<i>Hydrocarbon Processing,</i> the downstream processing sector’s leading technical publication, has announced the finalists for its third annual awards.

Advantages of using TDL analyzers for safety monitoring in combustion within HPI applications

Servomex: Jenkins, R.

From refining to chemical production processes, heaters play an essential role in hydrocarbon processing applications.

Pumps handicapped by not using best available technology

Hydrocarbon Processing Staff: Bloch, Heinz P.

Pump lubrication deficiencies are often denied, and the outstanding reliability performance of oil mist is vastly underreported.

An evolving approach to digitalization

Emerson Automation Solutions: Wyatt, T.  |  Fleissman, R.

Much has been written in recent years about the need for refineries to embrace the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Adapting and prospering in the energy transition

Yokogawa Corp. of America: Hasegawa, K.  |  Shire, T.

The energy transition is gathering momentum as pressure from society leads policy makers and investors to demand faster and deeper cuts to carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from all industrial sectors.

Engineering Case Histories: Case 107: Weld failures in vibrating equipment

Consulting Engineer: Sofronas, A.

Vibrating equipment can be machines, such as vibrating screens, conveyor pans or a combination of both, that are designed to transport, sort or dry materials.
