A gas turbine connected to one shaft driving a compressor that directs discharged gas to a second turbine, connected to a separate shaft, to drive a load such as a generator.

Related Terms

BUBBLE POINT

The differential gas pressure at which the first steady stream of gas bubbles is emitted from a wetted filter element under specified test conditions.

ARC

A flash, caused by an electric current ionizing a gas or vapor.

BEARING

A support or guide by means of which a moving part such as a shaft or axle is positioned with respect to the other parts of a mechanism.

CAM

Eccentric shaft used in most internal combustion engines to open and close valves.

False brinelling

False brinelling of needle roller bearings is actually a fretting corrosion of the surface since the rollers are the I.D. of the bearing. Although its appearance is similar to that of brinelling, false brinelling is characterized by attrition of the steel, and the load on the bearing is less than that required to produce the resulting impression. It is the result of a combination of mechanical and chemical action that is not completely understood, and occurs when a small relative motion or vibration is accompanied by some loading, in the presence of oxygen.

AXIAL-LOAD BEARING

A bearing in which the load acts in the direction of the axis of rotation.

ADIABATIC COMPRESSION

Compressing a gas without removing or adding heat.

FABRICATION INTEGRITY POINT

The differential gas pressure at which the first stream of gas bubbles are emitted from a wetted filter element under standard test conditions.

EP (EXTREME PRESSURE) LUBRICANTS

Lubricants that impart to rubbing surfaces the ability to carry appreciably greater loads than would be possible with ordinary lubricants without excessive wear or damage.

FLUID

A substance readily assuming the shape of the container in which it is placed; e.g. oil, gas, water or mixtures of these. A general classification including liquids and gases.
