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 participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of reciprocating compressors for petroleum, petrochemical and gas industries in accordance with the API 618 standards. It covers the types of compressors including the fundamentals and basic design of reciprocating compressors; the bolting and flanges; calculating cold runout; the allowable speeds, discharge temperature, rod and gas loads and critical speeds; the compressor cylinders, valves and unloaders; and the pistons, piston rods and piston rings. During this interactive course, participants will learn the crankcases, crankshafts, connecting rods, bearings and crossheads; the distance pieces, packing cases and pressure packing; the lubrication, materials, nameplates and rotation arrows; the compressor drivers, couplings and guards; the reduction gears, belt drives, mounting plates and controls and instrumentation; the piping and appurtenances, intercoolers, aftercoolers and separators; the pulsation, vibration control and air intake filters; and the special tools and inspection and testing of reciprocating compressor link to course overview PDF
