New Book About Speed Measurements, Protection for Rotating Equipment

Industrial supplier and service provider Istec has published a free book about speed measurements and overspeed protection for rotating equipment. Entitled Speed, the book covers topics such as speed measurements, overspeed protection, sensor types, functional safety and SIL, and the API 670. Released in June in both hard copy and soft copy (digital) versions, the book is now globally available free of charge.
 
“At Istec, we see a lot of operators having difficulties implementing and conforming to actual overspeed protection regulations on turbo machinery,” said Wouter Verschuren, director of Istec: “We focused on the engineers who are tasked with managing speed protection systems as part of a job description that is ever growing in both complexity and size. We hope to enrich their technical sources with accessible information and provide them with the arguments to help their companies make solid decisions regarding speed protection.”
 
Based in Lisse, Netherlands, Istec is an industrial supplier and service provider in the (petro)chemical, oil and gas, and energy sectors. As an expert in the field of speed measurements and overspeed protection, Istec supports rotating machines during their operational life, guarantees maximum availability, and ensures maximum value generation of processes that depend on these machines. Verschuren said that the limited availability of information regarding speed measurements and overspeed protection on rotating machinery compelled Istec to share its knowledge and expertise related to speed measurements and overspeed protection by providing informative knowledge articles, case studies and an extensive best practice guide,
 
“We made complex topics more practical and comprehensible,” said Verschuren.  The end of June marked the release of the book, and Istec saw more than 1,000 hard copies requested within just two weeks, he added.
