  • n Customer: Refinery, Louisiana, USA.

    n Challenge: Increase reliable, on-site power generation within the plants existing carbon footprint.

    n Result: An Elliott 36 MW FCC hot gas expander-generator converts refinery waste gas to electrical power.

    They turned to Elliottfor green, reliable power.

    The customer turned to Elliott because of our 50 years of experience and nearly 500 MW of installed capacity in FCC power recovery. Elliott TH expanders routinely operate 5 years and more between shutdowns, extending FCC maintenance cycles and reducing maintenance costs. Who will you turn to?

  • Robert X. Perez has just made a valuable contribution to the data avail-able for personnel involved in energy production and transmission and pro-cess operations.

    Perez, a machinery engineer, has compiled an illustrated dictionary of es-sential process machinery terms. The book is being printed by Diesel & Gas Turbine Publications, which is the par-ent company of COMPRESSORtech2.

    The 200-plus page dictionary will be helpful for compression industry pro-fessionals who need to communicate ideas or understanding design, perfor-mance and maintenance documents.

    According to Perez, process ma-chines come in a wide variety of forms and perform many critical functions. They are designed to efficiently and reli-ably pump liquids, compress gas, move air, generate mechanical power, trans-mit mechanical power, convert me-chanical power to electrical power, etc.

    Without such machinery, our pro-cesses would come to a grinding halt, which is why it is important that any-one working in these industries have a basic knowledge of the purposes and construction of machines.

    The purpose of the dictionary is to be a tool for those working around machinery, but who are not machinery professionals. It will help them quickly locate frequently used process ma-chinery terms and definitions in order to make better decisions.

    The dictionarys succinct format and portable size makes it an ideal field reference. This resource is per-fect for plant decision makers, mainte-nance personnel, process operators,

    purchasing agents, or anyone need-ing to understand machinery terms.

    The dictionary contains essential terms for a wide array of process ma-chines including: centrifugal pumps; rotary pumps; reciprocating pumps; centrifugal compressors; reciprocat-ing and rotary compressors; fans and blowers; electric motors; gas turbines; steam turbines; expanders; internal combustion engines and ancillary equipment and components.

    In addition to specific equipment terms, the dictionary contains other related machinery topics in order to provide broad coverage of the process machinery field. Those include: lubri-cation; condition monitoring; vibration and rotordynamics; plus reliability and machine shop methodologies.

    The book also has a quick refer-ence section listing frequently used acronyms. It contains a compilation of all of the acronyms contained within the dictionary, as well as commonly used acronyms within process ma-chinery applications.

    Anyone with a recurring need for machinery information should find this dictionary to be a useful addition to their technical library. It already has demonstrated its value in the commu-nication business that deals regularly with energy and process industries.

    The dictionary will be displayed at the COMPRESSORtech2

    booth dur-ing the Turbomachinery Symposium in Houston in October.

    So, while you are paging through this comprehensive dictionary, in a similar manner, may the Lord hold you in the hollow of His hand. CT2
