How to optimize IP rating of equipment

EN 60529 outlines an international classification system for the sealing effectiveness of enclosures of electrical equipment against the ingression into the equipment of foreign bodies (i.e. tools, dust, fingers) and moisture. This classification system utilizes the letters “IP”(“Ingress Protection”) followed by two digits. The first digit of the IP code…

Footprint estimation of Centrifugal Compressors

Compressors are widely used in industries to transport fluids. There are many types of compressors in industry, thus a proper selection is needed to fulfil the typical necessity of each industry. Foot print of compressor is very important from techno-economic point of view. Rotary equipment is used for high volume…

High Pressure Centrifugal Compressors

High pressure compressor do have relatively light rotor and can have asymmetric loading due to location of balance drum etc. Rotor bearing system should have high stability features. For traditional labyrinth seals used as medium pressure centrifugal compressors, radial and tangential forces depend linearly on frequency and stiffness. In those…
