Patent
Dresser Rand Company | Date: 2016-03-17

A balance piston for a compressor is provided. The balance piston may include an annular body and a seal extending from an axial surface of the annular body. The annular body may be configured to be disposed about and coupled with a rotary shaft of the compressor. The seal may be configured to form a sealing engagement with at least one component of the compressor to prevent a flow of a process fluid from an impeller of the compressor to a seal cavity of the compressor.

A motive air conditioning system for a gas turbine assembly is provided. The motive air conditioning system may include an inlet flow channel configured to be fluidly coupled with the gas turbine assembly. The motive air conditioning system may also include a filtration assembly fluidly coupled with the inlet flow channel and configured to filter motive air. The filtration assembly may include a plurality of filter modules disposed adjacent one another and further disposed circumferentially about a longitudinal axis of the inlet flow channel.

A balance piston seal assembly for a balance piston of a compressor is provided. The balance piston seal assembly may include a balance piston seal configured to be disposed about the balance piston such that an inner radial surface of the balance piston seal and an outer radial surface of the balance piston define a radial clearance therebetween. The balance piston seal assembly may also include a plurality of heaters in thermal communication with the balance piston seal and configured to heat and thermally expand the balance piston seal and thereby increase a radial length of the radial clearance.

A supersonic compressor including a rotor to deliver a gas at supersonic conditions to a diffuser. The diffuser includes a plurality of aerodynamic ducts that have converging and diverging portions, for deceleration of gas to subsonic conditions and then for expansion of subsonic gas, to change kinetic energy of the gas to static pressure. The aerodynamic ducts include vortex generating structures for controlling boundary layer, and structures for changing the effective contraction ratio to enable starting even when the aerodynamic ducts are designed for high pressure ratios, and structures for boundary layer control. In an embodiment, aerodynamic ducts are provided having an aspect ratio of in excess of two to one, when viewed in cross-section orthogonal to flow direction at an entrance to the aerodynamic duct.


Patent
Dresser Rand Company | Date: 2016-03-18

A supersonic compressor including an inlet configured to receive and flow therethrough a process fluid. The supersonic compressor may further include a rotary shaft and a centrifugal impeller coupled therewith. The centrifugal impeller may be configured to impart energy to the process fluid received and to discharge the process fluid therefrom in at least a partially radial direction at an exit absolute Mach number of about one or greater. The supersonic compressor may further include a static diffuser circumferentially disposed about the centrifugal impeller and configured to receive the process fluid therefrom and convert the energy imparted. The supersonic compressor may further include a collector fluidly coupled to and configured to collect the process fluid exiting the diffuser, such that the supersonic compressor is configured to provide a compression ratio of at least about 8:1.


Patent
Dresser Rand Company | Date: 2016-03-21

A balance piston seal assembly for a balance piston of a compressor is provided. The balance piston seal assembly may include a balance piston seal, a stationary support, and a gripping assembly disposed between the balance piston seal and the stationary support. The balance piston seal may be configured to be disposed about the balance piston such that an inner radial surface of the balance piston seal and an outer radial surface of the balance piston define a radial clearance therebetween. The stationary support may be configured to be coupled or integral with a casing of the compressor. The gripping assembly may be configured to secure the balance piston seal with the stationary support and to maintain concentricity between the balance piston seal and the balance piston during thermal radial expansion of the balance piston seal relative to the balance piston.

An impeller includes a hub mountable to a rotary shaft and configured to rotate about a center axis. The impeller may include a plurality of main blades and splitter blades arranged equidistantly and circumferentially about the center axis. A splitter blade having a leading edge and a trailing edge may be positioned between first and second adjacent main blades and canted such that the leading edge is displaced from a blade position equidistant the first and second adjacent main blades a first percentage amount of one half an angular distance between the first and second adjacent main blades. The trailing edge may be displaced from the blade position equidistant the first and second adjacent main blades a second percentage amount of one half the angular distance between the first and second adjacent main blades. The second percentage amount may be greater or less than the first percentage amount.


Patent
Dresser Rand Company | Date: 2016-03-21

An inlet guide vane assembly for a compressor is provided. The inlet guide vane assembly may include a hub configured to be disposed in an inlet of the compressor, and an inlet guide vane extending from the hub. The inlet guide vane may include a stationary section configured to be coupled with the inlet and a mobile section disposed adjacent the stationary section. The mobile section may include a rod configured to extend through an opening formed in the inlet. The inlet guide vane assembly may also include at least one biasing member disposed about the rod and configured to exert a biasing force on the mobile section to urge the mobile section radially outward.


Patent
Dresser Rand Company | Date: 2016-03-21

A compressor may include a casing defining a discharge cavity and a seal cavity. A rotary shaft may be disposed in the casing, and a shaft seal assembly may be disposed in the seal cavity and about the rotary shaft. An impeller may be coupled with and configured to be driven by the rotary shaft. A balance piston may be integral with the impeller and may define the discharge cavity and the seal cavity. A balance piston seal may be disposed about the balance piston such that the balance piston seal and the balance piston define a radial clearance therebetween. The radial clearance may be configured to provide fluid communication from the impeller to the discharge cavity. A heat shield may be disposed in the discharge cavity, and may be configured to prevent the conduction of heat from the discharge cavity to the seal cavity via the casing.


Patent
Dresser Rand Company | Date: 2016-03-18

A mounting assembly for assembling a bundle of a compressor is provided. The mounting assembly may include a plurality of biasing members and a mechanical fastener. The plurality of biasing members may be disposed in a recess formed in a first annular body of the bundle, and may be configured to apply a biasing force to a second annular body of the bundle. The mechanical fastener may extend through a mounting flange of the second annular body and the plurality of biasing members. The mechanical fastener may be configured to couple the first annular body with the second annular body such that the first annular body and the second annular body define an axial gap therebetween.
