Reciprocating compressors are pumps that force gasses into a limited and confined space thereby converting electric or chemical energy into potential energy by raising pressures. Reciprocating compressors are some of the most important equipment in many industrial setups. Large and critical industries such as gas pipelines, petroleum refineries, and petrochemical industries heavily depend on compressors. Poor compressor performance or faults could lead to high losses if operations stall or slow down due to inefficient compressor operation. Therefore, compressor selection, operation and maintenance are very important aspects of plant design and operation.
A gas compressor system adds potential energy to Continue reading...
