Your Gas Compression Application - Reciprocating, Centrifugal, or Screw?
MetadataShow full item record
This tutorial addresses the question of which compressor type is better suited to a given application - reciprocating, centrifugal or rotary screw- with the screw being subdivided into oil-free and oil-flooded types. The application guidelines will be addressed from the standpoint of reliability, cost, efficiency, size, and other more general application parameters such as molecular weight, compression ratio, and turndown capability.
