Carbon Dioxide Compression

Carbon Dioxide Compression Training

This two-day course uses dynamic simulation models to give a practical introduction to carbon dioxide, its application, characteristics, and carbon capturing technology. This course also covers the principles of gas compression when CO2 is the process medium, the selection of the correct type of compressor, the design of the compressor, how performance of the compressor is controlled and more. 

Suitable for: Personnel at all levels of responsibility and authority within engineering and operations functions. The primary objective of the course is to introduce the technology and functional design of carbon dioxide compression systems to those who have had limited exposure to such compression systems but who, by virtue of a new project or responsibility, need to update their knowledge and familiarity.  This course will also offer a comprehensive study of the subject for those who may have had only limited first hand compressor operation experience.
