I work in Ammonia plant and we're experiencing a problem in our Ammonia Compressor. The temperatures of both journal bearings of centrifugal ammonia compressor (which is driven by steam turbine directly) increase in spike form, without any change in bearing temperatures of steam turbine, and without any effect in radial or axial vibration values.
Could anyone suggest a reason for such a behavior?
