The Use Of Integrally Geared Compressors Based On Two Industrial Gas Companies' Experience.
MetadataShow full item record
The industrial gas industry has been using integrally geared compressors for over 35 years. This industry has the most experience in the design aspects, the commissioning, and the operation of this style compressor. With the inclusion of integrally geared compressors into API 617, and with use of these machines being more accepted as process compressors, these experiences should be shared. The compressor manufacturers’ all have designs and technology they are willing to show and sell to various industries. The intent of this tutorial is to provide some typical design aspects seen, some guidance, and then some issues concerning the integrally geared compressors from the perspective of a user community that has high familiarity with this style of compressor.
