COMPRESSOR EFFICIENCY STUDIES

Base-lining equipment performance system-wide allows companies to easily identify areas for improvement.

Compressor throughput is important to most companies. Unfortunately, most companies lose out on potential throughput by not optimizing their compressor performance.

Program Description:
This service is a comprehensive analysis and evaluation program to enhance compressor performance. The objective: optimize throughput in terms of HP⁄mmcfd pumped and compressor efficiency. Program features include:
  • Onsite testing (comprehensive compressor analysis and evaluation of operating and loading procedures)
  • Recommendations for repairs, upgrades, and enhancement
  • Development of standard baseline compressor performance indicators (HP/mmcf & compressor efficiency)
The program typically includes 2-3 days onsite testing and 1-2 weeks to document and prepare optimized procedures and controls.

Where Testing Is Applicable:
Large reciprocating compressors in gas service.
