  Diagnostic & Optimization of
Reciprocating Compressors


To familiarize the attendant with the characteristic/typical behaviour of a multistage reciprocating compressor subjected to varying load regime and gas conditions. To understand the relationship between gas performance and other parameters of interest, as valve and rod dynamic.

To familiarize the compressor station operator with the recommended practices to obtaing the best benefits from the engine side.

To train the attendant in the efficient use of the existing analytical tools for diagnosticing and optimizing reciprocating compressor performance, therefore increasing operational reliability, flexibility and efficiency.

Abilities and skills the attendant develops

Once having the characteristic curves available, the operator will be able to:

- Quantify the flow and power delivered to the network by the compressor at any suction and discharge conditions within operating range

- Determine the effect of suction and discharge pressure fluctuations

- Detect leakages in dynamic seals using an electronic analyzer

- Establish operating limits for rod loading and volumetric efficiencies

- Determine the detrimental effect of wear

- To carry out What If? analyses

The Project Manager existing analytical tools for optimizing reciprocating compressors performance follow:

- Flow Curves

- Engine Load Curve

- Wear Map

- Rod Overload Map

- Volumetric Efficiency Map

- PV Diagram

- Valve Behavior Curves

- Rod Load Reversal Diagram

- Leakage Detection Technology

- Engine Characteristic Curves
