API STD 611: 2022 [paper]
General-purpose Steam Turbines for Petroleum, Chemical, and Gas Industry Services, 6th Edition
This standard covers the minimum requirements for general-purpose steam turbines. These requirements include basic design, materials, related lubrication systems, controls, auxiliary equipment, and accessories for use in the petroleum, chemical, and gas industry services.
This standard includes only general-purpose turbines. General-purpose turbines are horizontal or vertical turbines used to drive equipment that is usually spared or is in noncritical service. They are generally used where steam conditions will not exceed a pressure of 48 bar (700 psig) and a temperature of 400 °C (750 °F). Typically, the turbine shaft speed will not exceed 6000 r/min and power not exceeding 4000 HP (3000 kW) with a single-stage turbine.
This standard does not cover special-purpose turbines. Special-purpose turbines are those horizontal turbines used to drive equipment that is usually not spared, is relatively large in size (power), or is in critical service. This category is not limited by steam conditions or turbine speed. Requirements for special-purpose turbines are defined in API 612.
In case of conflict between this standard and the inquiry or order, the information included in the order shall govern.
