Forsthoffer's Rotating Equipment Handbooks Vol 3: Compressors

File Size: 16.42 Mb

This Series has evolved from my personal experience over the last 40 years with the design, selection, testing, start-up and condition monitoring of Rotating Equipment. Most of the concept figures were originally written on a blackboard or whiteboard during a training session and on a spare piece of paper or I beam during a start-up or a problem solving plant visit.

My entire career has been devoted to this interesting and important field. Then and now more than ever, the cost of rotating equipment downtime can severely limit revenue and profits. A large process unit today can produce daily revenues in excess of US$5 million. And yet, the Operators, Millwrights and Engineers responsible for the safety and reliability of this equipment have not been afforded the opportunity to learn the design basis for this equipment in practical terms. I have also observed in the last ten years or so, that the number of experienced personnel in this field is diminishing rapidly.
