In turbomachinery applications, torque issues are often the root cause for equipment damage and instability. To be more specific, these torsional transients cause vibrations that induce stress and imbalance within the machinery itself, which can ultimately lead to costly repair and turnaround.

In this video Riverhawk Engineer and Director of Innovation Robert Whitney lays out the five different types of transients that can cause issues within turbomachinery, and how to identify them.
