Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using using our stateof-the-art simulators. This course is designed to provide delegates with a good working knowledge on centrifugal MEK compressors - hands on training. It covers the general description and key features of compressors including shaft, implellers/blades, balance drum and thrust collar, casing and diaphragm bundle/stator vanes, journal and thrust bearing, oil seals and instrumentation. The course will also discuss the gas path, abnormal operating conditions, compressor performance curves and regulations. It will further cover the compressor operations, compressor control system, line up procedure, startup procedure, shutdown procedure, safety protection system and troubleshooting. After the completion of the course, participants will be able to apply compressor maintenance in general, antisurge protection system, lube oil system, sealing system, assembly, disassembly and maintenance procedures.
