They convert velocity imparted by the impeller to the fluid, into fluid pressure. Positive Displacement Machine A reciprocating compressor or gear type pump is an example of a positive displacement machine. It increases pressure by squeezing or pushing the fluid into a region of greater pressure. Turbine A turbine uses steam pressure or burning gas to drive pumps and compressors at variable speeds. Motor drives are usually 19 20 A Working Guide to Process Equipment fixed-speed machines. Variable speed is an energy efficient way to control flows by eliminating the downstream control valve.

Dynamic Machine Centrifugal pumps and centrifugal compressors are dynamic machines. They convert velocity imparted by the impeller to the fluid, into fluid pressure.

A tray consists of the following components, as shown in Fig. 1: • Overflow, or outlet weir • Downcomer • Tray deck There are two types of tray decks: perforated trays and bubblecap trays. In this chapter, we describe only perforated trays, examples of which are • Valves or flutter caps • V grid, or extruded-valve caps • Sieve decks • Jet trays Possibly 90 percent of the trays seen in the plant are of these types. Perforated tray decks all have one feature in common; they depend on the flow of vapor through the tray deck perforations, to prevent liquid from leaking through the tray deck.
