This course builds knowledge of reciprocating compressor basics in both design and applications. Topics covered include recipriocating compressor fundamentals such as lubrication, valve design, capacity control, material options, and performance measurement. The approach uses current field case histories to illustrate Pressure Time (PT) and valve vibration events, rod load and crosshead vibration, and system losses.
As a bonus, Allied Reliability Subject Matter Experts may visit throughout the class to discuss topics such as the latest design trends in compressor components, lubrication practices, SmartCBM™, and other relevant, innovative reliability elements. At the end, you will feel confident in reciprocating compressor basics and be ready to move on to our advanced course.
