Question With Answer About Turbine And Compressor In Process Plant.
The turbine is a mechanical device or mechanical mechanism that converts thermal energy to mechanical/kinetic energy. In Petrochemicals, Chemicals, Power Generation, Ammonia, Oil and Gas, Manufacturing Industries, the steam turbine is used as the driving system or driver. Such as a steam turbine used to drive a power generator in the power plant.
Let us today discuss some of the issues related to compressors and turbines that I have shared with you some of the knowledge I have gained from working on compressors and turbines that I have seen in real life.
# How many types of turbines have you seen or known about?
# Well now, we see what is the difference between a turbine and a letdown valve?
Because of turbines and letdown valves drop their downstream steam or fluid pressure and temperature.
In both cases, pressure and temperature are decreased downstream of the device. In the case of a turbine heat energy is transformed into mechanical energy and performs some work, but in the case of a letdown valve, no work is obtained expected to lose the energy.
# Since we are talking about Turbines and Compressors, Lube Oil, Emergency Oil, and Control Oil is an important issue. Which must reduce the friction of any types of rotating or moving parts and use lube oil as a cooling agent.
As an example, we can say, e.g. Lube oil system and cooling oil system are very important for turbines, pumps, wind turbines, air compressors, rotary compressors, rotary equipment, moving equipment, i.e. any type of moving and rotating equipment.
#What are the function of Lube Oil, Emergency Oil, and Control Oil?
#Why overhead lube oil tank is used in a turbine?
=> The Lubricating Oil serves in part to create a film that lifts and supports the shaft and prevents it from coming into contact with the bearing walls. In part to cool the bearings and keep them at an acceptable temperature. Lube oil overhead tank is used to supply Lube oil for the time being at the time when lube oil header pressure became too low or Turbine And Compressor In Process Plant is tripped.
We maintain a continuous little flow to the lube oil overhead tank to maintain the desired temperature of lube oil and for keeping the freshness of the oil inside. So that it contains the usable quality at the time, when lube oil will come down by the same way through check valve under gravitational force to the oil headers, after tripping of the machine, due to too low header pressure to perform its lubrication work
=> And the function of Emergency oil is to meet emergency for the lack of lube oil in the normal Lube oil system. If any turbine or compressor is shut down due to low lube oil pressure. Then for the safety of the turbine or compressor and to keep the emergency lubrication system running, the emergency oil supply system is maintained through the emergency lube oil pump.
=> The function of Control Oil is to control the steam regulating valve of the turbine, with the aid of some controlling device in the Control Oil System. Also, maintain the speed of the turbine as per demand. It also serves to trip the machine with the help of some safety devices according to their predetermined set value. Control oil serves also to regulate the Sealing Steam, Control Oil also takes Part in the open-close mechanism of the Emergency Stop Valve (ESV) of the turbine.
