Our programs are designed to serve specific sectors and not proportion with public.

Steam Turbines of several types, which have widely varying configurations and applications, are used
extensively in the process industries. These and steam turbines represent a significant part of the capital and
operating costs of most plants, so that optimizing their selection is of major economic importance.
The course is devoted to design features, efficiencies, operating characteristics, reliability and maintenance
implications of centrifugal and steam turbine drivers.
This course will cover the operating principles of centrifugal and steam turbines, specifications, their design,
thermodynamics, effects of efficiency on operating costs, energy usage, effect on plant costs, special materials
of construction, selection, troubleshooting, and maintenance.

Upon completion of this course, participants will have gained a thorough understanding of the various
steam turbine configurations available to virtually every industrial user. Items
discussed include mechanical design features, sizing and application criteria, maintainability, reliability,
vulnerability and troubleshooting issues. Participants will learn simple techniques and short-cut methods of
machinery selection, which can take the place of tedious hand calculations and will serve as rapid means to
determine sensitivity or influence of parameter changes on equipment performance. Participants will be able to
determine the most appropriate and efficient matching of compressor to steam turbine driver. Participants will
also acquire knowledge of operating and maintenance issues by getting to know mechanical design, machinery
components, piping design, as well as proven approaches to monitoring, troubleshooting, and maintenance of
compressor installations.

This application and component course is intended to be of direct use by persons in staff (Senior Technicians,
Operators, Supervisors, Superintendents) and corporate engineering, plant planning and design, systems
design, equipment selection and evaluation, and equipment maintenance areas. It will also be of value to
equipment and systems specialists in engineering contractor firms. This course should also be valuable to
managerial and supervisory individuals responsible for operations and maintenance functions. The industries
most directly involved with the subject matter are those producing chemicals, petrochemicals, petroleum
products, natural gases, manufacturing gases, steel and other metals, and plants requiring process
refrigeration. Throughout the course participants will have ample opportunity to have equipment-related
questions answered by the instructor.
