Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. This course is designed to provide delegates with a detailed and up-to-date overview of reciprocating and screw compressors. It covers the various types of compressors; the principles of gas compression; the effect of staging, stage and interstage cooling; the practical compressor theory; the mechanical design and compressor systems; the systematic alignment techniques; the support criteria of centrifugal compressors; and the centrifugal compressor parameters. Further, the course will also cover centrifugal process compressors; the process conditions; the positive displacement compressors; the compressor operation; the reciprocating compressor cycle; the effect of staging; the oil free cylinders of floating pistons; condensation and liquid slugs; and the valve response and capacity control of reciprocating compressor. During this interactive course, participants will learn the compressor control; performance considerations; the gas pulsations and reduction of pulsations; the proper techniques in starting up, running and shutting down compressors; the practical screw compressor theory; the screw compressor process packages; the areas of application; the operating principles and capacity control; the power requirement and fitting control; and the performance, condition monitoring and troubleshooting.
