Most centrifugal compressors are driven by either gas turbines, steam turbines or electric motors and all three types of driver will be covered depending on the interest of the delegates. The principles of operation, anti-surge control and start-up and shutdown will be key course topics. The most popular sophisticated anti-surge control system on the market is the Compressor Controls Corporation (CCC) system and the operation of this system will be covered in detail.

This course is designed for anyone involved with the operation of centrifugal gas compressors on any kind of processing plant. Operations personnel who have some level of responsibility for the operation, control or management of the gas facilities which contain centrifugal compressors will benefit most from this course.
This hands-on, three-day course uses dynamic simulation models to give a practical introduction to centrifugal gas compressors and their operation in process plants. The practical exercises and workshops will use dynamic simulation models of compression systems running on PCs. They will be easy to use and the participants will require no prior knowledge of dynamic simulation.More Information
This two-day course offers delegates an overview of the design, construction, control and operation of reciprocating compressors. The course describes the principles of operation of the compressor and how the design is adapted to a number of different configurations to meet numerous needs. A fundamental understanding of gas behaviour will be an asset but not mandatory for this course.More Information
This practical two-day gas turbine course offers a comprehensive overview of the operation and control of industrial gas turbines used for both power generation and as drivers for compressors and pumps. The course explains how a turbine works and the different types in common use. How to control and operate turbines efficiently and key troubleshooting techniques and information will also be explained.More Information
An intensive, two-day course where delegates will gain a thorough introduction to the subject of positive displacement oil-injected helical screw compressors. The course is designed to explore many factors in the selection, operation, and control systems of the screw compressor for a particular application.More Information
This three-day course gives a practical introduction to the application of advanced control techniques in the process industries. It is an intensive course which relies heavily on the use of computer simulation software to allow for many practical examples and control strategies to be implemented.More Information
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.More Information
An intensive, two-day course to provide insight into how to troubleshoot a wide variety of problems that can occur with centrifugal compressors and their gas turbine or electric motor driver. The course will include a series of simulated practical case studies where delegates will be challenged to identify and correct real-life problems using a standard troubleshooting methodology.More Information
This two-day course explores the construction and configuration of the centrifugal compressor in some detail. It is an add-on to our Control & Operation of Centrifugal Compressors training course but is also run as a stand-alone package.More Information
This two-day course gives a thorough appreciation of the CCC compressor control system, including practice sessions on tuning and setting up the controllers on a CCC simulator.More Information
