Reliable Operation of Reciprocating Gas Compressors


Reciprocating compressors can be high maintenance and high downtime machines. This intensive two-day course uses dynamic simulation models to give delegates a practical introduction to the reliable operation of reciprocating gas compressors. This course will explore compression principles, reciprocating compressor operation, capacity control, rod loading and rod reversal, valves, reliability, and troubleshooting. Throughout the two days, delegates will learn common reciprocating compressor component failure
