Power Plant Centrifugal Pumps Book Review:

In the critical work of maintaining power plant machinery, operating difficulties with centrifugal pumps will inevitably occur because of the essential requirement for electric power plants to operate at all times throughout the year. The root causes and solutions for pump failure comprise major areas of study for engineers in seeking the highest availability of electricity-generating units, extending time between major machinery overhauls and providing early detection of potential failure modes well in advance of machine degradation. This guide for engineers provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of centrifugal pumps, addressing the range of pump operating problems encountered in both fossil and nuclear power plants. The book is divided into three sequential parts: Part I - Primer on Centrifugal Pumps, Part II -Power Plant Centrifugal Pump Applications, and Part III - Trouble-Shooting Case Studies. Employing effective research models developed through years of experience, the author draws on an extensive range of scholarship that covers the detrimental impact of power plant pump failures on overall plant performance, as well as the preventative measures that aid in successful pump maintenance. After covering the performance and components of centrifugal pumps, operating failure modes are covered both for fossil and nuclear power plants. This is followed by the presentation of several power plant pump troubleshooting case studies. The text also walks readers through the various other industrial applications of centrifugal pumps, as in their use within petrochemical plants and in ocean vessel propulsion systems. Recognizing the warning signs of specific impending pump failure modes is essential to minimizing the financial costs of dealing with pump operating problems. To this end, the author lays out a range of theoretical models and relevant examples in support of the essential work of power plant pump use and maintenance:

Centrifugal Pumps Book Review:

This last, the education of pump users, is precisely what this book was intended to do. To what extent we must have achieved our purpose, our readers must decide. My good friend and associate, J. T. (Terry) McGuire, and I have been working very closely together for a long time. Our view of engineering problems and of their solutions coincide to an astonishing degree. When I was asked to prepare a second edition of my book Centrifugal Pumps, it was logical that I turned to Terry and suggested that he be my coauthor on this project. He agreed to do so, and his cooperation has been most valuable, both in improving the resultant work and in easing my burden. It would be presumptuous on my part to pretend that nothing has changed in the technology of centrifugal pumps during the 30 years since I prepared the manuscript for the first edition of this book. Let me, then, speak of some of these changes.

Troubleshooting Rotating Machinery Book Review:

Process machines are critical to the profitability of processes. Safe, efficient and reliable machines are required to maintain dependable manufacturing processes that can create saleable, on-spec product on time, and at the desired production rate. As the wards of process machinery, we wish to keep our equipment in serviceable condition. One of the most challenging aspects of a machinery professional or operator’s job is deciding whether an operating machine should be shut down due to a perceived problem or be allowed to keep operating. If he or she wrongly recommends a repair be conducted, the remaining useful machine life is wasted, but if he or she is right, they can save the organization from severe consequences, such as product releases, fires, costly secondary machine damage, etc. This economic balancing act is at the heart of all machinery assessments. Troubleshooting is part science and part art. Simple troubleshooting tables or decision trees are rarely effective in solving complex, real-world machine problems. For this reason, the authors want to offer a novel way to attack machinery issues that can adversely affect the reliability and efficiency of your plant processes. The methodology presented in this book is not a rigid “cook book” approach but rather a flexible and dynamic process aimed at exploring process plant machines holistically, in order uncover the true nature the problem at hand.
