Rotary equipment is the given categorisation for mechanical devices that provide kinetic energy to an operation enabling it to move. Rotating equipment is seen in various mechanisms throughout the process industry sector and it consists of components that move solids, liquids or gases through a series of drivers, driven components and the transmission devices. This type of application can be usually found in steam or gas turbines.
The steam turbines act as a potential driver, using high-pressure steam to stimulate the rotary equipment such as the forced/induced-draft fans, pumps or air compressors. Whereas the gas turbines can either use compressed air to drive the generator or use "scoop tubes" as a fluid coupling to drive the rotating equipment. Operating this equipment can be fairly risky, and workers should be careful and take the right precautions in order to avoid injuries.
A gas turbine is the soul of the power plants. Its main purpose is to generate electricity by heating a mixture of air and fuel, at high temperatures causing the turbine blades to spin. We remain supplier neutral and aim to select the finest gas turbines according to our clients’ requirements as well as minimising their costs.
Similarly, a steam turbine is equally important to the process industry. It transforms thermal energy to mechanical energy and the turbine can work with either constant or variable speeds depending on the type of application. They can be utilised as a mechanical drive for compressors and pumps, available in different sizes ranging from small to large.
Compressors are used to increase the pressure of any fluid, and this in turn reduces the quantity of the fluid. Gases are compressible as well as some liquids. We supply the finest air compressors used with refineries and mainly general manufacturing. At Refteck, we understand the importance of air quality and the strict requirements of the compressors and hence we can help source the correct compressor to meet our clients’ expectations.
We offer a variety of gearboxes of different types, shapes and sizes such as worm, helical, planetary, and spur. Gear boxes are essentially used to alter speed, direction and the torque of the mechanical equipment. It is a vital piece of equipment; with just a small amount of rotational force, gear boxes are able to generate an even greater torque.
A reciprocating engine is mainly used for transforming pressure into a rotating motion, used in various power generation applications such as it provides a back-up capacity for power generation or can be used for industrial and commercial power systems. We provide the finest and robust products as we understand how important the automation is within the process industry.
There are two types of diesel engines; a two stroke or a four stroke. It has the topmost thermal efficiency of any combustion engine used within the industrial and domestic industry. We source modern diesel engines which are noiseless, low cost and that require less maintenance than the natural or propane gas-powered generators.
Controls and instrumentation
In order to run an operation smoothly, controls and instrumentation are required of the highest quality to ensure that precise measurement and control of the entire process is conducted such as meters, regulators, gauges, detectors, sensors, control panels and etc. It also has various applications including in power generation, industrial and fire pumping, irrigation, agriculture, oil and gas production and marine equipment.
