Rotating Equipment

Explore this topic

Rotating Equipment is a term generally used in the oil and gas and process industries to describe mechanical components that use kinetic energy to move fluids, gases, and other process materials. These include, but are not limited to, engines, compressors, turbines, pumps, generators, blowers, and gearboxes. While rotating equipment plays an integral role in most operations, it is often managed separately from fixed equipment because it has different design, maintenance, and inspection requirements.
