Double Flow Refrigeration Compressor Inlet Piping Design and Analysis
MetadataShow full item record
Objective: • Design an inlet piping system for a double flow centrifugal compressor that effectively utilizes existing site spacing constraints: • Distributes flow to each inlet evenly with minimal pressure loss and without gas swirl or other flow disturbances that may cause long term compressor performance and mechanical reliability issues. • Utilizes standard piping components for construction and minimizing piping support structure to minimize capital investment. • Offers simple control methodology eliminating the need for flow control valves and a complicated control system. • Provide most effective design solution with minimal engineering hours and reviews.
