Field Testing Of Compressors
MetadataShow full item record
An accurate evaluation of the performance of a dynamic rotary compressor is of paramount interest to the builder and user of this type of machinery because it defines the ability of a machine to perform a specific job and the related requirement for energy expenditure. Since the compression process in this type of machine is continuous rather than batch, as in reciprocating compressors, physical dimensions of the compressor will not permit accurate performance evaluation. Instead, the characteristics of the machine must be determined by calculation from the job that has been done on the gas as indicated by measurement of observable gas conditions.
