9780071800006: Centrifugal Compressor and Pump Selection

A concise guide for chemical process engineers, plant engineers, and mechanical machinery engineers for selecting pumps and compressors via included computer simulation programs.

Centrifugal Compressor and Pump Selection enables chemical process and mechanical machinery engineers to establish the type, leading design features, and performance of suitable compressors or pumps to satisfy specific process requirements. Downloadable Excel/Visual Basic open-source programs are included in this practical resource.

  • Divided into two distinct parts: The Selection of Centrifugal Compressors; and The Selection of Centrifugal Pumps
  • Theories, algorithms, and methods employed in selection criteria
  • Excel/Visual Basic open-source simulation programs aid in the selection of pumps and compressors under selectable parameters
  • Provides means to confirm and validate a vendor’s prediction of performance, as well as a clearer understanding of how the vendor arrived at predicted performance
  • Appendix of Drivers for Compressors and Pumps

About the Author:

David Midgley is a process engineer specializing in the performance characteristics of rotating compressors and pumps. His experience spans some 40 years, having started with the de-Havilland Engine Company where he oversaw the design, manufacture, and building of aircraft gas turbine engines. Mr. Midgley joined the British Oxygen Company's Scientific Division in charge of storage and handling of cryogenic liquid gases. He then became an engineering manager responsible for the modernization and development of BOC's tanker fleet, designed to transport liquid gases by road and pump fill storage tanks. Mr. Midgley was recruited by Cryostar AG, an American company located in Basel, Switzerland, to oversee design and manufacture of cryogenic centrifugal and reciprocating pumps, gas compressors, and expansion turbines for the processing industry.
