Industrial Equipment & Rotating Machinery
Energy efficiency is a fundamental requirement for modern industrial equipment and turbomachinery, due to high/fluctuating energy costs and availability. The focus is on reducing fuel burn or increasing machine efficiency, depending on the application. To achieve targets, developers look at improving all aspects of machine performance.
Improving machine efficiency generally results in reduced carbon emissions, but engineers also must address emissions of NOx, SOx, unburned hydrocarbons and soot. As machines cycle more frequently, operate off-design, and burn multiple fuels, it becomes more difficult to meet emissions targets.
But you can’t achieve efficiency and emissions targets at the expense of machine integrity. Industrial customers demand reliability, durability and safety. Increased cycling adds to the mix. More and more, the requirement is to broaden the machine’s operating range for the current and perhaps other applications.
