High Pressure Oil-Injected Screw Gas Compressors (API 619 Design) For Heavy Duty Process Gas Applications.
MetadataShow full item record
Oil-free screw compressors have been used for process gas application since the 1970s. Oil-flooded screw compressors have been used in many process related applications since the 1980s. Inclusion of oil-flooded screw compressors into API Standards (API 619, 1997) and with its expanding role into process compression applications, makes it necessary to present the authors’ experiences and share their acquired know-how. Higher reliability, lower maintenance costs, no pulsation, no extensive foundations, lower operational costs, lower initial costs, and many environmentally friendly qualities are some of the basic attributes of an oil-flooded rotary screw compressor. Those attributes are resulting in a significant demand for such machines, primarily as an alternative to reciprocating compressors.
