RECOMMENDED PRACTICES FOR THE DESIGN OF STEAM TURBINE GENERATOR OIL SYSTEMS
|Publication Date:||1 January 1968|
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVE
This recommended practice is applicable to steam turbine-generator units and provides recommended practices for the design of the oil system.
The oil system is defined as that complex which utilizes and circulates the turbinegenerator oil. The oil system generally includes high pressure, bearing, control, generator seal and drain systems. The system may also include the supply and return lines for a boiler feed pump and hydraulic coupling.
The purpose of this recommended practice for turbine generator oil systems is the attainment of the following objectives:
Lubrication, control and sealing will be performed satisfactorily by the oil mutually acceptable to the parties concerned.
Installation, cleaning and flushing will be facilitated.
Satisfactory system cleanliness can be maintained.
Safe practices are observed.
